Budget 2024

Goldy Hyder believes that while the government is taking the right steps in increasing immigration, there is still a lot more to do to boost levels of economic immigrants. The BCC’s press release was cited by the Financial Post in a story about the federal government’s 2023-2025 Immigration Levels Plan. 

“Unfortunately, economic-class permanent residents represent only 58.5% of total admissions in the plan announced today. This is far fewer than the number needed to support Canadians’ high standard of living.”
