Immigration in Canada continues to grow

May 8, 2013

The National Household Survey (NHS), released by Statistics Canada today backs up the observations made several times in the recent past – that Immigration in Canada is continuing at the same or higher pace.

Canada’s immigrant population increased by 1.2 million in 5 years between 2006-2011, bringing the total population of foreign-born Canadians to 6.8 million – the highest ever number. This is 20 percent of the total population, one of the highest in the world.

The survey also shows that the highest proportion of immigrants continues to come from Asia (56.9 percent), though it is lower than earlier census (60 percent). The drop is being compensated by immigrants from Africa, the Caribbeans and countries in South and Central America.

Immigrants continue to gravitate  towards larger cities (91 percent), and majority being in Greater Toronto Area, Metro Vancouver and Montreal, though this proportion is declining as well to the benefit of cities like Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Calgary, Edmonton, Halifax, etc.

Canada offers a number of Immigration programs at Federal level and Provincial level, for Skilled Workers and Business people.

Transcend can assist applicants from any part of the world in their immigration endeavour.
