With the soring real estate prices, any immigrant needs money to purchase a home. An immigrant can still survive in Vancouver without large capital, but the city becomes a hostile place for them to live. Immigrants like the “Mystery Migrant” would struggle to meet their daily living expenses. Likewise gaining money is also hard in Vancouver because any immigrant would also need to meet certain requirements to get a job, such as education, references and/or background in some occupation. Therefore only immigrants that are wealthy or have good jobs are welcome in Vancouver.
This article discusses how we are able to analyze recent policy changes from the development of Canada’s immigration policy. The main goal was to understand the objectives of the current policy, how it relates to the economy, and who the policy affects. According to the article, the country’s immigration policy has a history of wanting to use immigration for long and short term goals like economic growth and adjusting to current labor market conditions. Canada’s immigration has drastically changed from what it used to be after abandoning and adopting different concepts. An example would be the “absorptive capacity” concept that was abandoned after realizing it doesn’t truly help the long-term goals it originally was thought to be.
Over the course of a 40-year period in the 20th century, over 1 million immigrants came into Canada through Pier 21 in Halifax. In 2011, immigrants accounted for more than 20% of British Columbia’s population.

The changing political and social landscape of Canada, which helped to shape the immigration system, is responsible for the unequaled growth in Immigration to Canada.

In the article “Newcomers Vote with Their Feet“ by Rudyard Griffiths, there is a lot of Canadians who have a negative attitude toward the newcomers, and the author suggested to resolve the Canadian immigration system problem. Canadians believe that they are able to choose the skilled immigrants just because they are one of the developed countries, and no one can resist Canada. Nevertheless, they are wrong beliefs. In addition, while Canada is the second destination of the new immigrants, 95 percent of the citizens who obtained the Canadian citizenship are unskilled workers. Furthermore, 20 percent of the spending of the federal goes to the language trainers.
Canada accepts 250,000 immigrants every year, coming from more than 200 countries.

However, it is unrealistic to count labor force with half of immigrants who can be a lawful resident, but still cannot become part of the workforce. In that case, depending on certain conditions, immigrants can be an advantage or a threat to the indigenous labor force. Moreover, a rise in the immigrants’ rate would result in the large mass flow of the aliens to the existing work market. The market reaches saturation where people seeking employment exceed the available space if the employees keep on getting into the
The Worker Next Door published in the New York Times on June 3, 2006 by Barry R. Chiswick, addresses this article by bringing up the topic about immigrants and low skilled foreign workers. He also argues that it’s better to reduce the numbers of low skilled foreign workers to bring more benefits back to American people and society. Chiswick is saying that if there were fewer
The improvement of the rights of the Canadian Immigrants Canada, as one of the biggest immigration countries, welcomes people from all over the the world and forms a representative multicultural atmosphere in today’s society. Over these few decays, the country has always been consummating the laws to provide immigrants equal rights and freedoms, and better treatments they could receive. However, Canadian immigration laws were not unprejudiced and it eventually caused a “legal discrimination” before 1976. The legal rights of the immigrant groups have improved significantly because of the demands of developing the country, the influences of the wars, and the globalization of the world. Since 1880s, more immigrants and foreigners came to Canada because of the railway construction project.
Immigration in Canada Canada has viewed immigration as a big need in order to grow population and the economy. Without the immigration policies Canada’s population would not have grown as much as it has in the last decade. The Immigration policies in Canada make sure all values; beliefs and opinions of Canadians are regarded when making decisions. Not all Canadians are opposed to immigration but some aren't all for it either. If Canada was in the situations refugees and immigrants are in, Canada would want other countries to be happy to help.
Same with the previous research, this analysis finds no significant effect of immigration on net job growth for native-born workers. This suggests that the economy absorbs immigrants by expanding job opportunities rather than by displacing native-born workers in the United States. Moreover, the work force, like the economy, is not fixed and static. The U.S economy itself is dynamic, fluctuating, and creates hundreds of new jobs every
