According to the Minister of Immigration of Canada, in the year 2019, the nation will welcome at least as many new immigrants as it was expected this year. In the CBC radio show named The House, the comment of the Minister came just before the government is thought to be publishing its Immigration Levels Plan for the year 2019. Canada will accept 300,000 New Immigrants
“Our new normal is three hundred thousand,” Hussen said. “It is not only because of the need to meet the demands of Canadian families who wanted to rejoin with their close ones, that as a government we went from 260,000 to 300,000, but also because of the employers who want us to allow them to use immigrants more so that they can meet their growth needs.”
Earlier this year, Minister Hussen had said that the annual target of 300,000 new immigrants is just the base figure for the coming years. He also confirmed that below this figure, the levels of immigration in Canada will not go down. There have been 320,932 new arrivals in Canada between July 2015 and July 2016. For the year 2017, the target has been set at 300,000.
