Why does Canada need immigrants?
Canada attracts immigrants because of the aging population. By 2030, Canadians, baby boomers over 9 million will reach the retirement age of 65. To cover the gap in population, Canada attracts immigrants as there are not enough new-borns. Currently, Canada has over 1 million job vacancies to fulfill with the lowest employment rate of 4.9%.
There is a shortage of workers in different sectors of Canada which is why the government is working hard to bring in immigrants. Most of the immigrants that come to Canada are from the economic class. When they arrive in Canada, they are often young, so they have most of their working years.
