Immigration from Brazil to Canada breaking records this year
A recent survey showed about 21,873 immigration declarations of Brazilians who will leave the country permanently. This number is close to the total of 23,149 announcements in 2018. Everything indicates that the migration of Brazilians this year will hit a record. Canada is one of the countries that has been looking for skilled labour and, therefore, is attracting more Brazilians. As a result, the number of Brazilians in Canada has increased substantially in recent years. Last year, the country granted permanent resident status to 3,950 Brazilians, 88% more than in 2017.
