Immigration to Canada: what provinces newcomers prefer?
One of the main problems of Canadian immigration remains the unfair distribution of the immigrants between the provinces. Moreover, there is also the so-called ‘MTV’ problem – the vast majority of immigrants settle in only three cities – Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver.
This was the case in November – 42% of immigrants went to Ontario. According to IRCC, 10,635 (42.37%) of newcomers decoded to settle in Ontario. Moreover, If we take into account data since January 2019, over 45% of immigrants came to Ontario. The other provinces admitted the following numbers of newcomers:
- British Columbia – 3,810 (15.18%)
