Canada gets the fourth rank for accepting immigrants in the world

A new study by Gallup shows that Canada occupies the fourth rank as a country which accepts most immigrants.

It scored 8.14 from 9 in the Migrant Acceptance Index which was conducted by Gallup. The countries ahead of it are Iceland, New Zealand and Rwanda. Canada has a good record and its population accepts newcomers. The purpose of creating this index is to assess how the people accept immigrants. The focus is on increasing proximity. It asks three questions to the respondents, and afterwards their reply becomes the basis of assessment. The questions relate to whether immigrants residing in the country, becoming the neighbors and getting married into their homes, are good or bad situations.

Method of measuring response

The score of Canada is based on the answers of 2,000 citizens aged 15 years or above. The dates of survey were between August 10 and November 29, 2017, which was a period, when people entered Canada from the USA. The reason is that they claimed asylum, owing to the immigration policies pursued by President Trump.  The score of United States was ninth in this index.

Acceptance levels  

Another study of Environics Institute, says that many Canadians, have a positive view regarding immigration. The report further says that both Canada and the USA are warm to accept migrants.

Both nations have a long history of receiving immigrants, but one government is warmly embracing the history, and the other is distancing from it.

In the USA, where the Administration targets immigrants, as a threat to the nation and the local workers, respondents said that Trump is doing a fine job. The score of approval was 7.08, and of the disapproval was 8.54.

The trend to see in Canada regarding the performance of PM Justin Trudeau, as the head of the Liberal government, reflected the steps to increase immigration. The score of approval was 8.64, and of the disapproval was 7.84.

The determining factors

Furthermore, the survey reveals, that respondents in both the nations, who said religion is important in their daily lives, scored lower on the Index, in comparison to the respondents, who said that religion is not important.

Highly religious Americans identify as Republicans and as conservatives. On the other hand, more religious Canadians affiliate with the Conservative Party more than the Liberal Party.

The acceptance of immigrants, in both the nations was high among youths, and among the most educated and urban people. Level of acceptance, in both the nations was also high among the people who are having a job presently, and the people who are satisfied with the income and standard of living. The unemployed feel that they were not getting a fair share.
