Indians Recognised as 2nd largest Immigrants' Group in Canada

October 2017, 28
EMAIL  Print A+
As per the recent results from Statistics Canada, India is the 2nd country which contributes the highest number of skilled professionals to Canada. From the period of last 5 years, almost an eighth of people who settled in Canada permanently are Indians. 

In 2016, a total 1212075 people migrated to Canada and out of this 147,190 immigrants were of Indian origin. To be precise, 12.1% of immigrants admitted to Canada in 2016 were from India. The Philippines contributed the highest number of immigrants while China also made to the list; after India. 

As per a statement issued by Statistics Canada, “Current immigration trends - if they continue - and the aging of established cohorts of immigrants mean that from 55.7% to 57.9% of all immigrants would be born in Asia by 2036 and from 15.4% to 17.8% would be born in Europe.”

The best part of this immigration shift to Asia is that a maximum number of immigrants who migrated to Canada were skilled professionals i.e. people who went to Canada to settle on the basis of long-term options like Permanent Residence and hence contribute towards Canadian economy. People who migrated to Canada under PR accounted for 60% of the total number of immigrants. Immigration under family immigration accounted for 27% while the remaining 12% was covered by refugees. 

The most trending cities for immigrants to settle remain Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal. The vast opportunities these cities offer and the already settled immigration population; make these cities more preferable for immigrants to choose to settle. 

Canada has a vast number of opportunities for skilled professionals to migrate under Permanent Residence. Its Express Entry stream continues to attract skilled professionals with sound experience and good qualifications which in return is a way to ensure that people entering Canada will contribute to its economy and also fulfill the age & population gaps which Canada is facing from quite some time now. 

If you are somebody with a bachelors or diploma and have minimum 1-year experience, you too can have good scope to migrate to Canada.
