Canadian immigration – changing priorities

Recently released statistics show us changing trends in the immigrants and refugees Canada is admitting.

Over the last six years “ 2005-2010 “ the total number of new permanent residents has gone up. There were 277,575 in 2010, up 10% over the number in 2005 (252,182).

Within this total, there has been a major shift towards immigrants in the economic class, at the expense of Family Class immigrants and refugees.
