Canada looks to immigration to boost economic recovery


Canada is betting on a sharp increase in immigration starting this year to stimulate the country’s economic recovery after the Covid-19 pandemic.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government plans to dramatically increase the number of new permanent residents it accepts over the next three years, and officials have taken steps in recent months to speed up the pace of permanent resident approvals, largely by appealing to residents already in Canada on a temporary basis.
“History teaches us that when we increase our immigration levels, we grow our economy,” Canadian Immigration Minister Marco Mendicino said earlier this year.
Yet immigration experts say people arriving in a country during an economic downturn generally face more barriers to finding employment and settling, and some fear that workers already in Canada may be displaced. . Meanwhile, analysts point out that current border restrictions and processing backlogs could make it difficult for Canada to quickly increase the numbers.
The country’s current strategy to boost immigration for economic purposes is the most aggressive of its peers.
