Immigration to Canada: Real Newcomers


The federal government has touted a record number of immigrants arriving in Canada, but the more than 431,000 it quotes are actually less than half the number of new arrivals to the country last year.

Combined with non-permanent residents, the number of new entrants in 2022 will reach an estimated 955,000, representing “unprecedented year-on-year fluctuations in housing demand that are not currently fully reflected in official figures.” According to the January 25th article, CIBC Report.

According to reports, the number of new foreign arrivals could reach 1 million in 2023.

This huge number works like a wrecking ball for the Canadian economy.

Selective information sharing is distorting reality. In other words, the federal government is sorting these arrivals into several categories to reduce the visible impact of total migration to the country and avoid a blow when the real costs become clear. .

go by Data from Statistics Canadathis mass emigration to Canada is the largest movement of people in history outside of war, famine, or social collapse.

Of the vast number of arrivals in the country, the main category of newcomers is noted by traditional immigrants, where individuals arrive with their families. This number, a historic high of 431,645 in 2022, is a figure selectively quoted and disseminated by governments and does not include actual aggregates from other means.

Published by Statistics Canada population estimate The total number of arrivals is also significantly higher than reported as ‘migrants’, indicating an increase of 866,000 in the population due to new arrivals in 2021/2022.

CIBC reports that even these astronomical figures do not include arrivals from Ukraine. Over 145,000. these days Canada approved There were 514,000 applications, and the total number of Ukrainian applications submitted was 805,626.

Other categories include temporary foreign workers, refugees, illegal immigrants and international students, all of whom have access to our resources and infrastructure. In 2022, government records show more than 92,700 Categories of Total Asylum SeekersWroxham Road in Quebec alone 40,000 people Illegal crossing in 2022 will triple the number in 2021.

The impact and cost of this amount coming into the country on our infrastructure and social programs is staggering.

Ah recent interview Immigration Minister Sean Fraser referred to the government’s plans to hire 1,200 new civil servants to handle and host 1.2 million new arrivals in 2023.

Quebec, aware of the threat to the province by the sheer number of new entrants, has created a moratorium 50,000 per yearThis translates to 1.2 million fewer people arriving in Quebec, equivalent to a 4% increase in the current population arriving in the British provinces in 2023. Fraser is 80% in Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, and Mississauga, with Brampton being the fastest growing city.

Part of Quebec’s unspoken fear is how newcomers will dilute the highly regarded French culture. Unlike the melting pot concept in the United States, where everyone becomes an American, in Canada Elder Trudeau coined the concept of a cultural divide. However, multicultural mosaics, where each ethnic group retains its own cultural identity, create the challenge of some communities becoming their own mini-states.

Governments are trying to justify all this as a way to solve the “labor shortage” and “aging workforce crisis”.Although arrivals and labor needs are always linked, Ottawa has never produced a definitive report on what the actual requirements are from either scenario, and this view is a weak explanation. There appears to be: His 2022 from Statistics Canada labor force survey Despite a population report showing 866,000, it shows a population increase of 32,000, making it look like Statistics Canada manipulates the numbers for political purposes.

Furthermore, according to the Labor Force Survey, as of December 2022, there will be at least 55 workers in the workforce in the past year. 86,000 jobsWhile this doesn’t sound like an exodus of seniors from the workforce, it’s okay considering many seniors can’t afford to retire due to the high cost of living.average rent in canada Rise to $2,024 1 month, half of today’s seniors, income Under $32,200 In inflation-adjusted dollars (median), you can’t afford to live in any of Canada’s top 10 largest cities unless you own a home.

The truth is that most of the workforce exodus occurred from the baby boomers of 1946 to those born in 1964. We’re already two-thirds of his way through the baby boomer generation, and he’s only six years away. The justification for the need for large-scale migration to cover an aging workforce has been exaggerated.

Total employment increased by 494,000 to 866,000 immigrants to Canada. What happened to the remaining 500,000 who arrived?
