Trudeau Liberals Announce Record-High Immigration Targets

With many Canadians out of jobs, the Liberals plan to bring in over 1.2 million new people in the next 3 years, making the job situation even worse for Canadian Citizens.

The Trudeau Liberals have announced their immigration targets for the next three years.

And it’s the biggest increase of all time.

The Liberals plan to bring in over 1.2 million people in that time.

In 2021, the Liberals plan to bring in 401,000 new permanent residents.

In 2022, the Liberals plan to bring in 411,000 new permanent residents.

And in 2023, the Liberals plan to bring in 421,000 new permanent residents.

Keep in mind, that doesn’t even include refugee numbers and foreign students, meaning the real increases could even be much higher.

While some immigration can be important when there are huge labour shortages, these record-high levels will hurt Canadian Citizens.

That’s because, with so many people out of work, and with many jobs being insecure and low-paying, bringing in a bunch of new people will reduce the bargaining power of Canadian workers.

This may benefit big companies, but regular working-class Canadians will be put in a worse situation, adding on to the already negative job market facing so many Canadians.

Simply put, Canada needs to be reducing immigration, not increasing it. With a target approach bringing in something like 100,000 – 150,000 people, can could fill labour gaps, while not distorting the market against Canadian workers.

Also, with Canada becoming more divided, a lower rate of immigration will facilitate better integration and unity, rather than increasing tensions.

Unfortunately, Canadians are seeing that yet again the Trudeau Liberals put the interests of non-Citizens and big corporations ahead of the interests of the Canadian People.
