The Balance Between Immigration and Housing
The confluence of immigration and housing seems like a focused plan for Canada in 2024. All the policymakers are given the responsibility to ensure that housing availability and affordability are well-aligned with immigration targets.
Sean Fraser, the House Minister of Canada, has recently stated that the government is open to reviewing the immigration targets because of the ongoing housing problematic situation. He also pinpoints the need to have alignment between the Canadian community’s capability and immigration policies. This includes:
Concerns Regarding Temporary Immigration Programs
Fraser has shown his concern about temporary immigration programs that are running with no cap at the moment. He emphasizes the importance of collaborating with other government tiers before cutting off these programs. This specifically includes the ones that are responsible for admitting international students.
The Housing Crisis
To solve the housing crisis, the requirement is to go further than immigration and bring in a comprehensive approach. Fraser also said that immigration is a main component of the global economic prowess of the country for:
- Aiding labor shortage
- Attracting skilled professionals
- Supported economic growth
