Canadian Immigration Minister ”Ahmed Hussein” revealed that his country is ready to receive an additional 40,000 immigrants annually from 2021 to 2023.
CTVNEWS quoted the Canadian minister as saying that the number of immigrants will increase from 310,000 annually to 350,000 immigrants over the next three years.
Good news for those wishing to immigrate, work and settle in Canada
And because Canada suffers from a shortage of workers due to high rates of elderly workers, there is an urgent need for immigrants within the economic program, according to the minister.
He said the decision will make Canada one of the competitors in the global market to attract the best professionals to it.
The Canadian minister’s announcement came as part of the disclosure of a new government plan to raise immigration rates on a multi-year basis, covering the next three years from 2021 to 2023
Hussein stressed that what the current Canadian government is doing with regard to immigration depends on a concrete approach, which takes into account the arrival of new arrivals to their appropriate places in Canada.
According to the Canadian minister, a significant increase in immigration levels will require an increase in funding.
He also said that the issue of the arrivals of 460 thousand needs to be planned to receive them at one time.
With the arrival of newcomers, Canada’s population will increase to close to one percent, and most of the shortfall will be filled in the local labor market.
In 2016, the Canadian government’s Economic Advisory Board proposed admitting 450,000 people over the next three years.
The current government has increased funding for resettlement services for newcomers by 30 percent since Prime Minister Justin Trudeau took office in November 2015.
Immigration to Canada .. people dream
Immigration has become a dream for many people’s, and Canada is considered one of the first countries to see.
Justin Trudeau often defends his immigration policies and granting asylum to thousands of people coming to the country irregularly across the border with the United States.
In a previous interview with CBC Radio in July 2020, he said that his country must “abide by legal procedures and Canadian values in this regard.”
This came in response to criticism leveled by the head of government of “Ontario” Doug Ford, against the background of the collection of more than three thousand people who entered the country across the border with the southern neighbor via irregular ways in homes temporarily in the provincial capital, Toronto.
