According to the United Nations Refugee Agency, Canada has admitted more refugees than any other country in the world in 2018. Canada also had the second highest rate of new citizenship among refugees.\nSome 98,000 refugees were resettled in 25 different countries and Canada leads the pack with a total of 28,100 refugees welcomed over the course of one year. Of those, about 18,000 became Canadian citizens.\nCanadians, however, haven't been so quick to welcome this influx of refugees as you'd think. Polling numbers suggest that a vast majority of Canadians — some 63% — want the government to limit overall immigration levels.\nOnly 37% of Canadians think that there should be even more immigration to meet economic and labour demands across the country. Experts say that Canadians might be concerned about infrastructure, for example, but a strong economy — backed by immigrant workers — allows for more investment into key societal projects.\n#Canadian job vacancies reached 435,000 in first three months of 2019: https://t.co/WQYupRJktg pic.twitter.com/N2Oe86O2AC— Canadian Immigration (@canadavisa_com) June 14, 2019\nImmigrants that have successfully settled here are leading the charge when it comes to finding jobs.
