Here is an excellent video that dispells some of the economic myths surrounding immigration. Do immigrants “steal” domestic jobs? No.
For the first time in decades, Saskatchewan is experiencing rapid economic growth. The provinces resources and sound policy environment provide an opportunity for this growth to last indefinitely. However, the province is missing one thing: people. After decades of young people leaving the province, and with the impending retirement of Baby Boomers, increased immigration will be required to fill the workforce.
Saskatchewan’s economy is stronger than it has been in decades. But this strength may be undermined by worsening labour shortages. The impending retirement of Baby Boomers will further stress the workforce, and presents challenges to funding social programs. These challenges will necessitate an ongoing commitment to increasing immigration levels.
Minister Jason Kenney acknowledged that Canada would require 1 million immigrants in order to replace retiring workers, but claimed that it wouldn’t happen for various reasons. But unless we significantly increase immigration levels, the burden on young workers will be immense.
The doctrine of multiculturalism in Canada is presented, among other things, as a necessity to help immigrants prerve their language and culture, and to facilitate their integration into mainstream Canada.
Most Canadians see Indians on our street corners, displaced from their traditional homes and often drunk or unemployed.
