Two waves of immigration are expected to hit Canada’s economy over the next two years.
A third wave of immigrants from China are expected this year.
The Chinese government has been pushing its own economic policies that are seen as benefiting its own people, as well as the people of the world.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says the wave of Chinese immigrants from mainland China will have a knock-on effect on Canada’s labor market, but the government’s focus on economic growth is being undercut by fears about job losses and a lack of skilled immigration.
This is not about people who are coming to Canada to work.
This is about people coming to work and trying to make a living.
In a statement on Friday, Trudeau said the Government of Canada is “continuing to support efforts by Canada’s foreign trade partners and international partners to strengthen our labour market and encourage more Canadians to come to Canada.”
But he also said the government is “not seeking to discourage anyone from coming to the country.”
In its latest forecast, the Conference Board of Canada said Canada will have 1.1 million new immigrants in 2020, up from 1.0 million in 2020.
It’s a bit more optimistic for the Canadian economy.
Its forecast was based on an assumption that the total number of workers in Canada would fall by 2.2 million in the next decade, to 3.1 per cent of the workforce.
However, the number of foreign workers in the economy would increase by a further 2.8 million, to 2.9 per cent.
While the number is up slightly, it is down from the peak of 3.3 per cent in 2000.
On average, the average worker will lose 1.5 per cent value in their annual wage when they arrive in Canada.
But the government has warned the economic impact of these immigrants will be felt at all levels of the economy, not just the middle class.
“It is important that we understand the impact of this influx on Canada in terms of lower wages and job opportunities,” the statement said.
At the same time, the statement also said Canada’s unemployment rate is currently 2.5 percentage points lower than it was when the wave started.
Trudeau has been calling for an economic policy shift to address the wave, but has faced criticism from some quarters.
During a trip to China in August, he was criticized for not mentioning the issue at all during his trip.
When Trudeau visited China in January, he said: “We are here because of the Chinese people and the Chinese economy.”
But on Friday the government did mention it, saying in its latest outlook: “There is more to come.”
