Canada, Immigration, Newcomers

Immigration and Diversity

In October, Statistics Canada released a new national statistical portrait of immigration and ethnocultural diversity in Canada based on results from the 2016 Census.

immigrationSome interesting statistics:

A large number of respondents – 21.9% – indicated that they were or have been a landed immigrant or permanent resident in Canada. This is the highest level recorded since Confederation which was at 22.3% in the 1921 Census.

From 2011 to 2016 1,212,075 new immigrants permanently settled in Canada and make up 3.5% of Canada’s population.

Composition of New Immigrants:

60.3% – Economic Category
26.8% – Family Class
11.6% – Refugees

More than one in five Canadians are born outside of Canada. Immigrants and their descendants contribute to economic and social development and help shape the ethnicity, linguistics and culture of Canada.
