2. More Information
Guess it’s not really “temporary”.
Advantages to Employers
Yeah, it’s not really “temporary”.
And how many are we talking about anyway?
Well, if nothing else the TFW category is down from the Harper years. Though, to be fair, I think this is “per year” admittants, not the total in the country at a time.
3. Provincial Nominee Programme
How the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) works
This program is for workers who:
- have the skills, education and work experience to contribute to the economy of a specific province or territory
- want to live in that province, and
- want to become permanent residents of Canada
Each province and territory
* has its own “streams” (immigration programs that target certain groups) and requirements. For example, in a program stream, provinces and territories may target:
- business people
- skilled workers
- semi-skilled workers
If “temporary” foreign workers cannot get PR status Federally, then there is a good chance they can Provincially.
Now this is encouraging:
However, being healthy and of good conduct does “not” apply to refugee applicants.
Note: In 2017, the number of PN admissions was 49,724.

4. International Students Fast Tracked To PNP
Although this article was meant to address the Temporary Foreign Worker’s Program (TFWP), it should also be noted that international students completing a college diploma or university degree are often accepted into the PNP as well. So it is worth looking at how many people that involves.
p style=”padding:2px 6px 4px 6px; color: #555555; background-color: #eeeeee; border: #dddddd 2px solid”>Number of international students increasing at a higher rate than that of Canadian students
The number of international students enrolled in Canadian postsecondary institutions has been on the rise for two decades, with their numbers increasing at a higher rate than that of Canadian students. International students totalled 245,895 in 2016/2017, representing 12.0% of overall enrolments.
245,895 international students in the 2016/2017 year, and we can expect that number to grow. Of course, Permanent Resident status is often straightforward after that. From there, citizenship is really just a formality.
Now, we are told that Canada currently has an immigration intake of 310,000 per year (although scheduled to increase). This does not take the 317K (listed in 2017) of international students.
2018 REPORT TO PARLIAMENT ON IMM
Some other facts:
-In 2017, Canada admitted 159,262 permanent residents in Economic Class programs, representing 55.6% of all 2017 admissions.
-In 2017, Canada admitted 65,417 new permanent residents in the Economic Class through the Express Entry application management system, an increase of 32,003 from the previous year.
Of the 49,724 admissions under the Provincial Nominee Program, 13,531 were through Express Entry, an increase of 73% over 2016.
-In 2017, IRCC admitted 22,253 caregivers as permanent residents. This was above the high end of the planned admissions and reflected measures to reduce the inventory of applicants that applied under the former Live-in Caregiver Program.
-In 2017, a total of 587 admissions were processed through Federal Economic – Business Immigration programs.
5. You Can’t Make This Up!
Okay, apparently you speak English of French if you “identify” as doing so.
6. How Many People Total?
A few assumptions:
(1) Although International Mobility is “meant” to be temporary, visa holders absolutely can find ways to obtain other visas, or apply for PR in certain cases, so count the entire amount.
(2) Data for 2017 lists some 317K student visas. While it is certainly true that not all will stay afterwards, the vast majority will want to.
|Temp Foreign Worker||80,000|
Of course, these are estimates from older data. They do not include other categories, or the hordes of illegals coming into Canada. It also doesn’t include any other program that may not be listed.
975,000 in a year. More than 1/2 million more than our “leaders” are telling us.
7. Bernier V.S. Trudeau
What we are “told” the numbers are
What the numbers “actually” are:
And of course, this is presupposed on the idea that there are only 810,000 legal immigrants into Canada this year.
4% increase with “open borders” Trudeau.
6% decrease with “populist” Bernier.
What a complete scam.
(Added June 17, 2019). This is Maxime Bernier calling out the “globalist” Trudeau and Scheer for supporting mass migration.
8. StatsCan Information
CLICK HERE, for 2018-2019 estimates.
Statistics Canada estimates that from 2019 to 2019
Q1 in 2018 = 36,786,021
Q2 in 2018 = 36,890,169
Q3 in 2018 = 37,058,856
Q4 in 2019 = 37,242,571
Q1 in 2019 = 37,314,442
This would be an increase of 525,000, which is 215,000 or 70% higher than what we have been told. But there’s more.
StatsCan found most growth came from migration.
So, another 525,000 new citizens, and another 165,000 new residents
That would be 690,000 people.
Let’s see some census data.
In 2011, there were 33,476,688 Canadians.
In 2016, there were 35,151,728 Canadians.
This is a difference of 1.68M, or 335,000/annually.
But this only takes into account “citizens”, not permanent residents, or other temporary residents.
Even using StatsCan data, the 800K+ estimate seems pretty reasonable, when other groups are factored in.
And to reiterate: not everyone who comes into Canada on a “temporary” path will stay. But the majority will want to and try to.
