The Canadian government announced today that Canada will accept 300,000 immigrants and refugees in 2017.

“The 2017 levels plan,” said Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, Hon. John McCallum, ” will put Canada in a strong position for the future and support our overall economic and social development as a country.”

The Minister stated that the Government of Canada is committed to an immigration system that strengthens the Canadian middle class through economic growth and attracting investment, supports diversity and helps build vibrant, dynamic and inclusive communities. He also added that the plan will help to reunite more families by reducing the processing time.
