Higher Immigration Levels The “New Normal” Says Minister Hussen

The Trudeau government plans to continue bringing in 300,000 or more immigrants per year, an increase of 40,000 over the numbers under the Harper government.

In a recent interview, Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen says the increased levels of immigration under the Trudeau government are the “new normal,” and could even be increased.

“Three hundred thousand is now our new normal,” said Hussen.

He added, “As a government we went from 260,000 to 300,000 because of the need to meet the demands of Canadian families who wanted to reunite with their loved ones. But also employers who are asking us to allow them to continue to use immigration more and more as a way to meet their growth needs.”

It should be noted that the immigration levels under the Harper government were already among the highest in the world on a per-capita basis.

The numbers under Trudeau, combined with higher refugee numbers – including the surge in illegal crossings – there are growing concerns about the strain on taxpayer-funded social services, as well as a reduction in the bargaining power of Canadian workers – a big reason why massive corporations want continued immigration increases.

There will also be concerns that the Trudeau government is increasing immigration to boost Canada’s population, while imposing policies that increase the cost of living, which makes it tougher for Canadian citizens to be able to start and grow our families.

Additionally, higher immigration can lead to problems with integrating people into Canada’s society – an increasing concern as the Trudeau government refuses to even believe that there is such a thing as Canadian values worth defending.

We do not need higher levels of Immigration in Canada at present! This is overwhelming the Taxpayers! We do need an Intelligent, thoughtful government that will look after existing Canadians first.


It won’t take long before globalist Trudeau will replicate the problems of Europe here in Canada. In a few years or less, women will not be safe. Small prairie towns will be colonized by 3rd worlders and could turn into “no-go” zones.


the local and provincial governments can not take care of the newcomers we already have. soon we will run out of military bases and hotels to place them.
trudeau is not looking after all these new people. he has downloaded that to the local governments. he has relaxed he qualifications to enter this country, at least one used to have to speak English and or french

Large scale immigration is , frankly , frightening – the decisions made by this government on a weekly basis are the scale at which they should be considered by the populace – this guy saying this is the ‘new normal’ is pompous – things may become the new normal through a series of events but you cannot simply say it is so – this guy’s new normal is a decree made by a morally bankrupt government bent on the destruction of this country – the MP”s are as bad as their leader – what an embarrassment – how can they… Read more »
