Nov 2nd, 2017 – Canada Will Admit 310,000 Immigrants In 2018 – Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen

Canada will boost immigration to one million over the next three years with a plan that “will guarantee” the country’s future prosperity, its immigration minister announced Wednesday.

The number of immigrants will be increased to at least 310,000 next year, and continue growing to 330,000 in 2019 and 340,000 in 2020, said Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen, who assumed office in January and is himself an immigrant.

“This plan will result in the most ambitious immigration levels in history and will guarantee Canada’s prosperity now and into the future,” he told a press conference.

The arrivals — in economic and family categories, as well as refugees — would push up the population of Canada by about 0.9 percent each year, an increase from 0.8 percent in recent years.

Critics, however, said as many as 450,000 newcomers are needed annually to support businesses and labor needs as the population ages and birth rates fall.

According to the last census, the proportion of the Canadian population born abroad had risen to a near historical high of 21.9 percent in 2016, for a total of 7,540,830.

For the first time, Africa ranked second ahead of Europe as a source of recent immigrants, from 2011 to 2016, Statistics Canada said.

Asia, including the Middle East, remained the leading source.

The top source countries in these two regions were Nigeria, Algeria, Egypt, Morocco and Cameroon; and the Philippines, India, China, Iran, Pakistan, Syria and South Korea, respectively.

    Just as Britain, Belgium, and France had been taken over my Muslims in their political, non-violent and immigration jihad, so go Canada in less than ten years. Ahmed Hussein, please bring all your terrorist brothers to Canada and take over their country from them gradually and systematically. You are a Sharp Muslism guy living among foolish Canadians. There is a verse in Quran or hadit where Mohammed predicted the gradual takeover of European and some weak and ungodly North America nations like Canada in a non-violent jihad like what European citizens at experiencing in England, Germany, France, Belgium and other unions in Europe today. Only Trump and those Christian s around understand what is coming upon those nations. American people will appreciate him with time.

      @omokehinde I may have disagreed with some of your comments on here like of Buhari,Apc,& BIAFRA issues but on this particular comment about CANADA it’s 100% correct and I believe so many people that lives around North America or knows a bit history of it would agreed with you too.
      Stay blessed!

    To: Canada Immigration Department.To: Canada Immigration Department.

    From : Palestinian Refugees’ Families at Nahr El Bared Camp – North Lebanon

    Subject : Your Cooperation is highly appreciated, We asked your Humanity’s Soul.

    Dear Mr. President,

    Please Keep our children and our youth from loss.

    11 years of the process of reconstruction of Nahr al-Bared, and we are still in the first third of the stages of reconstruction UNRWA states that there is no money to complete reconstruction … In addition to:– – Reduce the medical services for refugees, especially the treatment rate for Nahr al-Bared?– Regarding Nahr al-Bared families, especially those who are still in the spotlight:– – Suspension of rental allowance for about two years– – Stop the state of emergency and relief– – The funds allocated for the reconstruction of the Nahr al-Bared camp were able to reconstruct a city similar to the city of Tripoli in full, but Nahr al-Bared camp after 11 years has not been completed reconstruction until today’s date.– It is an injustice and a conspiracy in itself.

    It helps in the economic and humanitarian deterioration of displaced families from Nahr al-Bared refugee camp and provides citizenship and asylum in a country that provides them and their families with a decent life and respects their rights and duties. Leaving us in a state of loss, displacement and despair …– Why do not we be treated like the displaced Syrians …

    They have a homeland and we are stateless … Despite all this, they believe in humanitarian asylum and re-citizenship in Canada and European countries in addition to material and moral assistance!– The question of the Palestinian refugees in Lebanon is in the hands of UNRWA and its mandate … but did UNRWA ask the refugees what they think? Why do not you hold a referendum and discuss the transfer of the refugees from UNRWA to UNHCR …– Please listen carefully to the voices of the oppressed, the oppressed and the desperate people of Nahr al-Bared, who are still waiting for reconstruction after 11 years of false promises and unjust unfair UNRWA decrees to about 1000 families.

    Save our children and youth from loss … We are looking forward to a decent life and looking for safety and security … This only comes with divorce from UNRWA, so be it … Let us separate from UNRWA … We do not want to settle in Lebanon, The Lebanese government does not recognize the rights of the Palestinian refugees and does not allow them to work or own property in Lebanon, as is the reconstruction of Nahr al-Bared camp. Who will secure a decent life for us and our children?– We look forward to citizenship in European countries, Australia or Canada.

    There are about 163 families from the Nahr al-Bared camp who are still waiting to build their homes. They want citizenship and migration to a country other than Lebanon. The number of people, the worlds, students, males, females and ages is examined according to the following chart.

    They hope that you will study their situation and help them to get rid of them. From the difficult situation they are suffering in Lebanon, hoping you will be resettled in Canada (democratic and humanitarian country).

    Please respond to our message and take care of it, and we hope so.
