Get your passports ready….people!!!!

We all can attest to the fact that Ghana is hard! and we have to survive… Well we think there’s a way out of this ‘wahala‘.

Canada has unveiled plans to admit more than 1 million new residents by 2021.

In an annual report to the Canadian parliament, the minister of immigration, refugees and citizenship, Ahmed Hussen stated: “Thanks in great part to the newcomers we have welcomed throughout our history, Canada has developed into the strong and vibrant country we all enjoy,”

“Immigrants and their descendants have made immeasurable contributions to Canada, and our future success depends on continuing to ensure they are welcomed and well-integrated.”

Hussen, who immigrated to Canada from Somalia in the 1990s, went on to praise the country for its “non-discriminatory” stance on immigration.

“Canada is a world leader in managed migration with an immigration program based on non-discriminatory principles, where foreign nationals are assessed without regard to race, nationality, ethnic origin, colour, religion or gender,” he wrote.

Canada’s population skyrocketed over the last year and immigration accounted for about 80 percent of growth.

The country now plans to admit about 330,800 immigrants in 2019; 341,000 in 2020; and 350,000 in 2021.

“Under this plan, Canada will welcome more talented workers with the skills and expertise our economy needs, reunite more family members and accommodate more refugees looking to start new lives,” the report states.

The country, which is committed to protecting the rights of refugees, is working to tackle a major backlog in asylum claims, according to Global News.
