Canada has received the highest immigrants in 2018 after almost 100 years. There was a total increase of 321, 065 immigrants in the year. 71, 131 migrants settled in Canada just in the last 3 months of 2018.
The last time when Canada received such high volume of immigrants was in 1913. More than 401, 000 migrants arrived in Canada in the year according to Statistics Canada.
The huge rise in immigration not witnessed in the last 100 years has been welcomed by Canada warmly. Its economy now stands a chance over aging population and unbearable household debt nationally.
The largest influx of migrants in more than over 100 years in 2018 was due to a total addition of 321,065 arrivals. This is the most considerable growth after 1913, as quoted by the MTL Blog.
Majority of the immigrant arrivals to Canada are also in the working age. Thus the nation now has a chance over debt and aging demographics. Immigration has also helped to make up for the slow growth of the population naturally. It has also created an increase in employment.
If the forms of immigration like non-PR immigrants are included, the increase from overseas immigration will be 425, 245 just from 2018 itself. These numbers are even beyond the scale.
The huge rise in immigration to Canada in 2018 resulted in total population growth of 528, 421. This is the largest increase in the population of Canada after the late 1950s.
In terms of percentage, the increase in population in 2018 was by 1.4%. This happens to be the fastest expansion after 1990. It is also the strongest amongst the G-7 nations.
Fortunately, the increase in immigrants also makes up for the slow growth of the natural population. Its increase was the lowest for Canada after at least the later years in the 1940s.
