Canada Welcomes A Record Number of Newcomers in More Than 100 Years
Canada welcomed the maximum immigrants in a calendar year in 2018 since 1913, the recent estimates show.

Latest Immigration Numbers by Statistics Canada

Statistics Canada declares 71,131 current permanent residents arrived in Canada in the last quarter of 2018, making the whole for the year to 321,065. The number is the maximum in higher than 100 years, with 401,000 immigrants coming in 1913.

The entire 2018 data reveals the population of Canada increased by 528,421 in the year 2018, with immigration accountable for higher than 80% of the number. It is the most significant yearly increase in the population of Canada since the 1950s.

The population of Canada grew by 1.4% in 2018, the quickest recorded yearly growth since 1990 and the most vigorous growth among all of the G7 nations.

The truth further explains the significance of immigration that Canada’s natural growth of population was just 103,176 in the year 2018, the lowest since current records started in the 1940s.

Provincially, 7 out of 10 provinces of Canada observed immigration progress in 2018 when correlated to 2017, initiated by Ontario. Largest province of Canada observed the newcomers' number increase by higher than 25,000, from 111,950 current immigrants to 137,395.

After Ontario, the following most significant increase was observed in British Columbia, where numbers increased by just over 6,500 immigrants, from 38,440 to 44,975.

The numbers put barely the struggle with bringing new immigrants to the smaller provinces of Canada, especially in the Atlantic region.

While 03 out of 04 Atlantic Provinces noticed immigration progress from 2017 to 2018, the numbers of immigrants continue low given the push to try and bring higher people to the region.

Federal and Provincial officials will be expecting to see more significant gains in 2019. The significant exception, meanwhile, is the province of Quebec, which has seen immigration drops for the past two years.

While economic conflicts of Alberta go some way to demonstrate why immigration to the oil-rich province has declined, the economy of Quebec is booming, with businesses eager to fill jobs. Still, the province of French-speaking viewed immigration decline from 53,245 in the year 2016, to 52,400 in the year 2017 and further in 2018 to 51,115.

The plan of provincial government "Coalition Avenir Quebec" to decrease immigration more in 2019, respite for businesses striving to hire staff seems not to be happening anytime soon.
