Canada to welcome more than 1M migrants by 2021

Canada plans to welcome more than 1 million immigrants by 2021.

"Thanks in great part to the newcomers we have welcomed throughout our history, Canada has developed into the strong and vibrant country we all enjoy," Ahmed Hussen, the country’s minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, said.

According to the CNN report, Canada plans to add up to 350,000 permanent residents in 2019 and some 730,000 in the next two years. Hussen added that the plan is part of Canada's efforts to deal with the aging population and declining birth rate.
