Promise Kept: Immigration Policy and New Canadians

Over the past year, our Government has taken action to ensure that our immigration system is efficient and fair and that newcomers to Canada have a real chance to succeed. We are committed to an immigration system that strengthens Canada’s middle class through economic growth, supports diversity, brings families together, and helps build vibrant, dynamic and inclusive communities.

Min. Sajjan welcomes 150 new citizens to Vancouver on Canada Day.

In 2017 our Government:

One in five Canadians are foreign-born – the highest proportion in the G8 – and in Vancouver, 40% of our population is comprised of immigrants. Our Government will continue to make Canada an attractive place for people to immigrate to and a supportive place to live once they arrive.
