Lately, the two significant gists arising in the Immigration sector of Canada are on a family reunion and refugee claimants. It is rather unfortunate that on various social media handles, the topics are sometimes being discussed irrationally. The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau has discouraged people from spreading information that will create fear and intolerance about Immigration in Canada. Citizens of Canada react differently to the presence of Immigrants in the country, and these differences are influenced by factors like the region of residence and the current stage of life. In a Survey conducted by Research Co. on the opinions of citizens of Canada on immigration, it was shockingly discovered that 46% of the residents of Canada think immigration has a positive effect on the country, while another 36% thinks its impact on the country is negative. In most of the demographic areas surveyed, a higher number of the residents that were met felt optimistic about immigration to the country. The most interested members of the population in the present state of affairs in the country are those within the age range of 18 to 34 years. In this category, 27% of them said Immigration had negative impacts on the country while 55% of them thought otherwise. Another group which was actively concerned and involved were those from the Province of Quebec. 30% of them said it had adverse effects on the country, while 52% of them said it was for the good of the country. Meanwhile, two other categories of the members of the Canadian society are more likely to be pessimistic about Immigration to Canada. The first category covers citizens within the ages of 35 to 54 years. Here, 39% of the individuals responded negatively about immigration and another 39% gave positive responses. The second most pessimistic group was the residents of Alberta. 42% of the residents said immigration left negative footprints on the country, while 41% of them said it had positive effects on the country. Furthermore, the survey shows that of every five citizens of Canada, only one of them (20%) believes that Canada should increase its rate of Immigrant intake, while 36% of the citizens said that it would be better for the country to bring down its immigrant intake. Provinces that are most likely to appeal for a reduction in the number of Immigrants taken into the country are Alberta (36%), Quebec (38%) and Ontario (39%). Again, 40% of the citizens of Canada within the age range of 35 to 54 are anxiously requesting for a decline in the immigrant intake, while a staggeringly low 15% of them agree to the need for more legal Immigrants in Canada.
