Million-immigrant plan great for Canada

Canada’s plan to admit one million immigrants over the next three years strikes the right balance, Toronto immigration lawyer Robin Seligman tells AdvocateDaily.com.

The CBC reports that the federal government’s newly released plan is to admit 310,000 new permanent residents across all immigration classes in 2018, with a further 330,000 arriving in 2019, and a record-breaking 340,000 landing in 2020.    

Although the numbers sound large, some business groups have called for an even bigger influx to match economic demand, and Seligman, principal of immigration law boutique Seligman Professional Corporation, says she appreciates the government’s “step-by-step” approach.
