Newcomer numbers in GVA and GTA break North America record
Countless new immigrants and international students flow in every year to Canada’s two largest immigration cities, Vancouver and Toronto. According to the latest statistics report, the proportion of immigrants in Vancouver and Toronto is much higher than that of the big cities such as New York, Miami, Los Angeles and Washington! Almost half of the residents are immigrants. The number of new immigrants in the Toronto area reached a record number of 117,000, which increased the population of Toronto by 1.9%. The Vancouver area added 40,020 new immigrants, and the population increased by 1.6%. Most new immigrants are more likely to settle in big cities. According to statistics, in 2019, 16 of the 20 new immigrants in BC went directly to the Greater Vancouver Area. As Québec has reduced its immigration levels by 20%, the population influx into Toronto and Vancouver has skyrocketed, and the number of immigrants in Montreal has decreased by 34,620.
