Immigration Watch Canada is an organization of Canadians who believe that immigration has to serve the needs and interests of Canada’s own citizens. It cannot be turned into a social assistance / job-finding program for people from other countries. It should not be a method to suppress wages and provide employers with an unending supply of low-wage labour. It should never be a social engineering experiment that is conducted on Canada’s mainstream population in order to make it a minority. **
But immigration has become those three things.
Un regard sérieux aux politiques immigration de Canada
Immigration Watch Canada est une organisation de Canadiens qui croient que l’immigration doit servir les intérêts de ses propres citoyens et ne doit pas être transformé en un programme d’aide sociale / de recherche d’emploi pour les personnes d’autres pays. Elle ne doit pas non plus etre une méthode pour diminuer les salaires et fournir aux employeurs un approvisionnement sans fin de main-d’œuvre à faible cout. Finalement, Les pratiques d’immigration ne devraient jamais être une expérience d’ingénierie sociale qui est menée sur la population du Canada afin d’en faire une minorité. **
Mais l’immigration est devenue ces trois choses.
QUICK IMMIGRATION FACTS
THE FOLLOWING “CLOCKS” BEGAN ON JANUARY 1, :
1. Net Cost of Immigration to Canada: up to $35 Billion per year. That amounts to $95,890,000 per day, and so far in ,
2. Number of immigrants coming to Canada per year: an average of close to 250,000 since 1991 (Note: in 2016 and 2017, Canada took in about 300,000). That’s 822 per day, 34 per hour. This unnecessary and relentless intake is an abnormality in our immigration history, and has made many Canadians feel like strangers in their own country.
3. According to the Canadian Bureau of International Education (a private advocacy group), there were over 336,000 foreign students in Canada in 2014. The CBIE and many public agencies claim that International Students are a net economic contributor to Canada. However, NO Canadian study has ever been done to prove that claim. In fact, in the U.S., a study done by the National Academy of Sciences and other agencies showed that in spite of the high fees paid by International Students, U.S. sources were actually subsidizing International Students. In the case of Graduate students, the average subsidy was about $12,000 + per year. Canada continues to accept large numbers of NEW international students every year.
4. Number of Temporary Foreign Workers allowed to work in Canada has grown as high as 500,000 in some years, representing new arrivals and those already here.
5. Remittances sent overseas total $24 Billion a year. Remittances represent the amount of money sent ‘back home’ by foreign-born workers in Canada.
6. Canada gave refugee status to 122,518 people from 2009 to 2013 — an average of 24,514 people each year, 67 per day. The number of people applying for such status was probably at least twice that number.
