Immigration is transforming Canada’s labour market, economy, health care, education, arts, sports and culture. Clearly, we cannot continue to view immigration in a policy silo. Rather, by 2020, immigration must be fully integrated into all aspects of Canadian public policy. In fact, future policymakers will want to look to immigration to find many of the answers to the nation’s most pressing challenges, including an aging population, increasing costs of health care, and the pressure to have a creative and productive economy. Immigration is, and will continue to be, an important contributor to Canada’s economic and social success.
