Strengthened Immigration to Grow the Economy

We will continue to welcome more people to Canada, with a focus on attracting highly skilled workers.

Immigration helps to make Canada more diverse – and more successful. In communities across the country, new Canadians work hard – teaching our children, caring for us when we’re sick, starting new businesses, and creating good jobs.

These contributions are needed now more thanever before. As people in Canada grow older and family sizes grow smaller, many businesses and communities struggle to find enough workers, putting the services people rely on – and Canada’s strong economy – at risk.

To keep our economy strong and growing, we will move forward with modest and responsible increases to immigration, with a focus on welcoming highly skilled people who can help build a stronger Canada.

We will also continue to work with the government of the United States to modernize the Safe Third Country Agreement.
