Canada’s immigration state: Continued growth whilst juggling challenges

Canada has been able to cope with the ups and downs over the years that reduced its ability to accommodate young people. Immigration to Canada declined sharply during World War I. Canada has also seen major waves of migration, particularly as part of the response, and recovery from challenges. Hundreds of thousands of immigrants have arrived in the country in the next decade or so following the establishment of Saskatchewan and Alberta as provinces. Unlike many European countries, which may have had a large population and did not have enough land, Canada had a controversial issue: it had very few people and lots of lands. The decline in migration to Canada due to Coronavirus is far from Canadian history. 

Between 1946 and 1953, more than 750,000 souls found a home in Canada. Canadian workers after World War II lacked the necessary post-war recovery skills. Immigration has increased Canadian economic growth, quality of life, and globalization. 

The government has announced a goal to accommodate 1,200,000 permanent residents in Canada from now until 2021-2023. Economic and human needs are the catalyst for this process of prosperity. Immigration Minister Marco Mendicino: “Immigration is critical to our temporary economic recovery”. Canada has long been a refuge for the people fleeing persecution in their home country. In addition to the 1947-1953 group, Canada welcomed thousands of Hungarians in 1956-7, as well as Vietnamese “boat people” in the late 1970s and Syrians in 2010.  

The trend continues. Recently, Canada announced special measures to reduce migration and the retention of people from Hong Kong, following increasing precautionary measures there. 

Canada doubles its efforts to settle down densely populated areas and improve its agricultural potential. The Rural and Northern Immigration pilot allows small and medium-sized communities in Canada to select immigrants to work and live in these areas. The pilot of Agri-Food Immigration, meanwhile, facilitates the arrival of people who will work as farmers, ranchers, and other activities in agriculture or food production. 

Of course, many things have changed and have improved. Paper-based applications which are slower in comparison to digital applications have forced a shift towards the digital pace heavily. The plan for national economic and ethnic migration has paved the way for a goal-oriented program. 

 Provinces and territories have taken the lead in establishing new streams to attract the best and brightest. The programs for entrepreneurs, as well as people educated in Canada, are very significant developments.
