Toronto, Vancouver witness record-breaking immigration growth

Toronto and Vancouver

The Canadian cities of Toronto and Vancouver are attracting a higher number of immigrants compared to other major immigrant-receiving cities in North America that include New York, Miami, Los Angeles and Washington DC. This incredible growth in immigration in the two Canadian cities is partially owing to the country welcoming a record high number of new permanent residents in 2019. Quebec reducing its immigration levels by 20 percent is yet another reason why more immigrants chose Toronto and Vancouver. Only a fewer number of immigrants moved to Montreal in 2019 because of immigration levels cut by Quebec. The US tightening is immigration rules was yet another significant reason for the rise in the number of immigrants settling in Toronto and Vancouver.
