The Canadian government is sending 837,000 respirator face masks to the Department of Health (DOH)…
In 2025, Canada will welcome 500K immigrants.
In order to ensure the nation’s economic growth, Canada plans to welcome 500,000 immigrants in 2025, according to Immigration Minister Sean Fraser.
That is in addition to the 465,000 immigrants that Canada anticipates welcoming in the upcoming year and more than the 400,000 that came in the previous year.
According to Fraser, the figures are required to fill open positions.
In Canada, where the population is aging, there are currently, according to officials, over one million employment openings.
Many of those immigrants will need to have the knowledge or experience necessary to fill those open positions.
The Business Council of Canada (BCC) concurred that maintaining a high standard of living for Canadians requires maintaining immigration numbers in the economic category.
According to BCC President and CEO Goldy Hyder, “every position that is not filled signifies one less person contributing to Canada’s economic growth and one less person paying taxes to fund Canada’s social infrastructure.”
According to the BCC, two-thirds of its members had to postpone projects due to a labor shortage.
Additionally, 30% of the members reported that they relocated their jobs outside of Canada for the same reason.
However, more immigration types will also be covered.
The number of people traveling to Canada to see family who are already there will rise from 106,000 in 2023 to 118,000 in 2025.
From 76,000 in 2023, the number of refugees admitted will slightly decline to just under 73,000 in 2025.
The UN praised Canada for its refugee numbers despite the minor decline.
In a statement to the media, Rema Jamous Imseis, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees Representative in Canada, said, “The United Nations Refugee Agency appreciates Canada’s sustained commitment to refugee resettlement as part of its broader immigration growth plan.”
According to the Canadian Press, immigrants currently make up around 23 percent of Canada’s 38 million residents.
