Panel Discussion About The Impact of Canada's 2021-2023 Immigration Plan - Jan. 14th
Hear from experts as they examine the evidence and arguments of how Canada's immigration plan will affect the years ahead.
Date: January 14, 2021
Time: 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM (CST)
In fall 2020, the Government of Canada announced, a new plan to increase immigration targets for the period 2021-2023 to more than 1.2 million people instead of the original 1 million planned for 2020-2022.
The increase is driven largely by the need to make up for lost immigration during the COVID-19 pandemic and to provide economic stimulus in the pandemic aftermath. Approximately 60% of new admissions are expected to come from the economic class of skilled workers.
The academic community is divided on whether or not a sudden surge in migrant intake will lead to the desired outcome. Will the increase in levels result in simply a signal to the business community that more immigrants mean more consumers? Or will the plan have a multiplier effect and where more migrants will lead to more work and funding for the settlement sector, more people buying and renting homes, etc?
