Canada Bucks Recessional Trend With Opportunities For Emigrants

The numbers reflect a continued commitment to an immigration program that balances Canadas economic, humanitarian and family reunification goals

Canada welcomed an overwhelming 247,000 new residents in 2008, and it has no intention of stopping, with promise of a further 265,000 this year.

As fraternal Commonwealth countries are nipping numbers in the bud, Canada remains vehement in its commitment to immigration.

While countries such as the United Kingdom and Australia are talking about taking fewer immigrants, our planned numbers for 2009 are on par with last year and among the highest for this country over the past 15 years, says Jason Kenney, Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism.

The numbers reflect a continued commitment to an immigration program that balances Canadas economic, humanitarian and family reunification goals, he continued.

Indeed, the immigration quota is broken down into these distinct categories: economic, family and humanitarian, with approximations of 156,000, 71,000 and 37,000 people, respectively.All of this may come as surprising news to potential immigrants, who have no doubt been deterred by the precedents set by other Western countries.

But those of you intent on setting up ventures in Canada can rest assured: the country will be open for business a while yet.
