For those who desire to work outside Nigeria, the opportunity is coming.
The Canadian Parliament has announced plans to add more than one
million new permanent residents in the next three years. That’s nearly
one percent of the country’s population each year.
“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,” said Ahmed Hussen, Canada’s minister of Immigration, Refugees
and Citizenship (IRCC).
Hussen, himself an immigrant from Somalia, said the influx will help
offset Canada’s aging population and declining birth rate while growing
its labor force.
Canada’s friendly stance towards new residents comes as many other
Western nations, including the United States, are adopting more
restrictive immigration policies.
