Most countries in the western world, including Japan, Austria, Germany, and Australia, have low birth rates associated with the problem of an aging population. This is why they need the help of immigrants to compensate for these negative aspects and improve their industries.
However, negative feelings about the migration problem have become popular in the Western world. Immigrants have expressed concern because local people perceive a threat that thinks they are taking advantage of their job opportunities. Other negative feelings affected cultural factors as the Western world fears that more immigrants will cause cultural change, while migrants practice their culture of origin. Migration has also caused a security problem in the western world.
However, most Canadians believe that immigrants help their economy, according to a recent Environics poll, which found that up to 80% supported immigration to Canada.
The survey also indicated that most Canadians believe that immigration levels should remain as they are or that the government should consider adjusting them downward. However, these views generally do not hold water when Canadians choose their leaders, as the major political parties have all committed to more immigrants.
Four reasons why Canada stands above the rest
Various factors allow Canada to distinguish itself from other Western countries in the way it treats migrants, and these factors include geography, history, politics, and politics.
The geographic location works to the advantage of Canada because Canada, unlike other Western countries, the European Union and the United States, is geographically isolated. The issue of isolation gives him more power to control people entering the country. The issue of illegal migration has also increased over the years in Canada, which has reduced public confidence in Canada’s immigration systems. However, the public has not given up hope of the immigration system and most people still believe that the system is under control.
Historically, Canada has prospered through immigration. With the exception of Canada’s Aboriginal communities, the majority of the population came from migration or an immigrant ancestor. The majority of people in Canada have come from different parts of the world for a very long time, which gives them the opportunity to welcome and support others. The aspect of welcoming new people to Canada has recently changed, it was after the Second World War because previously people could not tolerate immigrants.
Politics is the main reason why Canada is unique in its immigration policy. First-class immigrants make up over 20% of the population and, along with second and third class migrants, live in Canada’s largest cities, namely Calgary, Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal. The parties understand that to win in these powerful regions, they must encourage as many immigrants as possible to form a government. In prospect, a larger immigrant population will increase the number of immigrant voters, reducing the appeals of political parties against immigrants.
Supporting immigration policy places Canada above other Western countries. Over the years, Canada has developed and reformed immigration-related policies to support public interests. Economy classes have been put in place to identify and hire skilled migrants to work in Canada to grow the economy. Canada invests more than any other country in government settlement programs, including employment and community integration.
Positivity is the engine of Canada’s immigration system, which is above the rest. However, the immigration element only lasts if the public continues to support it. Canada needs to improve on another aspect to ensure stronger border controls and additional policies to improve immigration.
