Manitoba is the fourth province to reject holding immigration detainees in provincial jails
Manitoba will soon become the fourth Canadian province to end its contracts with the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) and stop detaining immigrants in provincial jails. Earlier this year, British Columbia became the first Canadian province to put an end to holding migrants in provincial jails for the CBSA. By mid-September, Nova Scotia and Alberta had followed suit. The latest data from the CBSA shows that during the year that ended on March 31, 2021, there were 3,668 migrants detained by the border services in Canada. In the first three months of 2022, the number of detainees decreased compared to the end of 2021.

Canada’s population reaches 39,000,000 people
With a population increase of 4,049,402 in the past decade alone, Canada is home to 38,929,902 people. With an average birth rate of 1.49 children per woman, this growth is due mainly to immigration policies. In 2021, 23% of all Canadians were immigrants. Twenty years from now, that number could jump to 34%. This year, 430,000 people became permanent residents of Canada. The most popular countries of origin for new immigrants are India, China, and the Philippines, and the top destination province is Ontario.

Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe aims to increase immigration
Saskatchewan Prime Minister Scott Moe intends to convince the Canadian government to increase immigration to the province from 6,000 to 13,000 people annually. To do this, he turned to the business community of Saskatchewan for help with a request from the Canadian authorities for a new immigration agreement between Canada and Saskatchewan. Like most officials in Saskatchewan, Mo believes the province needs more immigration autonomy in the immigration process to meet economic needs and address labour shortages. By 2030, the province plans to create another 100,000 jobs. The provincial government aims to make the SINP the primary source of immigrants, increasing Saskatchewan’s population to 1.4 million by 2030.
