Abstract

Canada is known as one of the traditional immigration countries. Since 1867 more attention has been paid to immigration and its policy. Many restrictions were implemented through immigration laws. The inflow of various ethnic groups, particularly the visible minority population, was finally permitted in the 1960s. Immigration has influenced the demographic, cultural and economic structure of Canadian population. Immigrants aged between 20 and 40 each year comprise the largest portion of total immigrant arrivals and since 1992 there have been more women than men. Also, there is a great impact on ethnic, linguistic and religious diversity. Finally, immigrants today are more qualified than they used to be which impacts the economic structure. Immigration is becoming increasingly important for population growth.
