New Survey Show Canadian Exceptionalism to Newcomers

As a full-service immigration and business consulting firm, the team at Racer Immigration assess the best possible way for people to legally immigrate to Canada. With services that range from application assistance to troubleshooting, they provide assistance to both families and businesses looking to bring people to Canada. As a matter of course, team members have to stay up to date with laws and trends. And new research by the Environics Institute offers some good news to prospective Canadians.

In light of the news and social media, it’s clear that many countries are harbouring a growing anti-immigration stance. Many European countries and the United States have made headlines with their verbal vitriol and biased policies.

But while Canada is no stranger to bigotry and discrimination, there is much to feel positive about as well. A study by the Environics Institute has shown that overall Canadian attitudes towards immigration are largely positive, a trend that hasn’t changed over the last thirty years. Even more notably, Canada stands out in terms of the satisfaction and happiness immigrants themselves report. This is a feeling that’s shared in the 2018 World Happiness Report, where Canadian immigrants’ feelings about their “subjective well-being” ranked seventh out of 156 countries.

Despite what may be heard online, sixty percent of Canadians disagree that immigration levels are too high, and only thirty-five percent agree. Eighty percent agree that their impact on the economy is a positive one.
