Canadian Cities Toronto & Vancouver Attracts Record Number of Immigrants
The Canadian popular cities Vancouver and Toronto are attracting a larger number of newcomers related to the other principal immigrant-receiving cities in North America that comprise Miami,  New York, Washington DC, and Los Angeles.

Reasons for More Immigrants Choosing Canadian Popular Cities

This unbelievable growth in immigration in the two cities of Canada is partly owing to the nation welcoming a record-high number of new immigrants in the year 2019. Quebec province is reducing its levels of immigration by 20% is yet another reason why more newcomers chose Vancouver and Toronto. Only a lesser number of newcomers moved to Montreal in the last year 2019 because the levels of immigration decreased by Quebec. The tightening of US immigration rules was yet another important reason for the increase in the number of newcomers settling in Vancouver and Toronto.

Though Canada is a large country, most of the newcomers prefer to settle in one of those two big cities. 16 out of 20 new foreigners who came to the province of British Columbia in 2019 decided to settle in Vancouver, while only 1 in 20 newcomers settled in the region of Greater Victoria. Though Vancouver has a comparatively lesser population size of 2.2 million, the city is forecasted to be the 5th highest immigrant-receiving city in North America, announced Jack Jedwab, Metropolis Canada President.

As a record number of newcomers (117,000) migrated to the Greater Toronto Area in 2019, the population of the city increased by 1.9%. 40,020 new foreigners having migrated to Metro Vancouver, the population of the city also increased by 1.6%.

The growth rate of immigration in Toronto and Vancouver was evaluated without taking into consideration of study permit and temporary work permit holders.

The overall levels of immigration in Canada observed an incredible increase in 2019, as 341,000 new immigrants moved to the nation. The number of new immigrants who landed in Canada in 2015 was only about 271,000. The proportion of newcomers from India also multiplied in 2019. One out of four in the new immigrants to Canada in 2019 was from India.
