A massive 10.2% unemployment rate isn’t going to stop Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party from bringing record numbers of immigrants to Canada in 2021.
Sources indicate the federal government is planning to announce a record 351,000 new permanent residents in 2021 when they release their latest immigration projections next month.
The news comes just a month after it was revealed that Canada has the highest unemployment rate among G7 countries at 10.2%, contrasted to Germany at just 4.4%.
It also comes while Canadian borders remain essentially closed and Atlantic Canadian citzens face quarantine restrictions for travelling outside the ‘Bubble’.
Does bringing more people into a country without jobs make sense?
