New Study Reveals Ontario Needs to Boost Immigration Outside GTA

Ontario must recognize new ways of assuring more newcomers to settle in Greater Toronto Area outside to guarantee more stable population growth over the province and manage a high quality of life for all its residents in the following years, the latest study by Conference Board of Canada reveals.

The Greater Toronto Area, or GTA, presently welcomes 77% of new immigrants to Ontario, which turned to 106,000 immigrants to the GTA in 2018.

The outlasting 23% of immigrants to the Ontario province settle in different areas of the province, with 15 census metropolitan areas (CMAs) GTA outside bringing in 20.5%.

With a population of higher than 6.4 million, 46% of whom are newcomers and the GTA is Canada’s most populated and multicultural urban area. It includes the Toronto city and 25 different municipalities and is deemed as Canada’s financial and business capital, producing approximately 20% of Canadian GDP.

This fact, the study states, puts the rest of Ontario’s census metropolitan areas at a difficulty in bringing immigrants, who typically attempt settlement goals with reliable job openings and community and family ties.

Build a Strategy on Regional Immigration

While noting actions taken by Ontario’s provincial and municipal governments to immigration regionalization and the federal government’s current Northern and Rural Immigration Pilot, the Conference Board study states such attempts could be supported by the production of a Regional Immigration Strategy of  Ontario.

The goal of the plan would be to incorporate a shared vision for the future, along with short and long-term targets of regionalization, regional economic preferences, performance parameters to track progress, and an operational plan highlighting the roles and responsibilities of every party in reaching the targets.

Parties to the plan would cover Municipal Immigration Committee of Ontario, government officials and stakeholders such as business, development groups of the workforce, immigrant-serving institutions, colleges, and universities among others.

The Conference Board of Canada study provides the model of a medium-term goal that would see the share of immigrants settling GTA outside increase to 35% by 2030.
