Canada is calling for another 1 million immigrants to come populate the country, a staggering number considering the country’s size. The Washington Examiner reports:
Canada wants more than 1 million immigrants to enter the country by the end of 2021.
In an annual report to Parliament, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Ahmed Hussen wrote that Canada’s “future success depends on continuing to ensure they [immigrants] are welcomed and well-integrated.”
The report showed that Canada’s goal is to bring in 330,800 immigrants in 2019, 341,000 in 2020, and 350,000 in 2021, for a total of 1.02 million immigrants.
“Thanks in great part to the newcomers we have welcomed throughout our history, Canada has developed into the strong and vibrant country we all enjoy,” Hussen said in the report.
