The modern Canadian culture is a collaboration of migration and multiculturalism. At present, Canada invites 0.9 percent of its populace in migration, which is threefold the per capita immigrant consumption in the United States. Nonetheless, Canada has consistently taken in a higher newcomer for each capita than any other western nation. At the point when Canada welcomed more than 400000 migrants in 1939, it meant 5 percent of the populace. Today, a comparative occasion would prompt the appearance of more than 2 million new immigrants to Canada.
2. Immigration Favors Canada’s Economy

A drop in populace means a low labor force, a reduced production level, and, subsequently, a contracting economic yield. Other than boosting Canada’s economy, immigration likewise improves Canada’s buying power, expanding the labor force, and demand for local products and services. On this ground, the Canadian government can easily support its consumption.
