IS CANADAS' IMMIGRATION POLICY A PROBLEM?
Monday Aug 07th, 2023
Canada is set to continue with its immigration targets despite the current housing crisis , reported by BNN Bloomberg.
Miller said the government needs to keep or raise its yearly immigration target for permanent residents to around half a million. This is because of the decreasing number of working-age people in relation to the number of retirees as it poses risks to public service funding.
Canada needs to address that in a smarter way, by attracting a younger and skilled people, to make sure that people can retire with same expectations and benefits that their parents had. Is that really what our Government is doing?
In the previous year, the total arrivals of foreign students, temporary workers, and refugees amounted to one million. Critics say that population upswing caused a strain to major urban centres and intensified the country’s housing shortage.
