Canada has experienced a remarkable milestone as its population has grown by over one million people in just one year, with 95.9% of this growth attributed to international immigration. (source: National Post) As the new government unveils plans to welcome an additional half a million permanent residents, the focus now shifts to how they will effectively address controversial challenges such as housing shortages and the need for healthcare workers.
A recent survey conducted by Bloomberg News revealed interesting insights into public opinion regarding the government’s immigration plan. Approximately 52% of respondents viewed the plan as having a positive impact on Canada’s economy, while 38% expressed concerns about the potential negative effects. Surprisingly, 4% of those surveyed believed the plan would have no impact at all. These divergent opinions reflect the complexities surrounding the issue and highlight the need for careful consideration and planning.
