Ottawa: Canada’s Parliament has announced plans to add more than one million new permanent residents in the next three years, which is nearly 1 per cent of the country’s population each year. Canada welcomed more than 286,000 permanent residents in 2017 and projects that number could reach 350,000 this year, CNN reported. “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,” Ahmed Hussen, Canada’s Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship (IRCC), said on Thursday.
