On October 30, 2019, the Business Council of Canada, a lobby group representing CEOs and top managers of the largest Canadian corporations, has released a report underlining their concerns about the future of Canada. A report entitled “A better future for Canadians – Report and recommendations” lists such obstacles as the ageing population, sluggish productivity and global economic threats for the prosperity of the country. The report calls the new government to set an annual target for immigration equal to 1% of the country’s population, starting in 2021. Such an increase will help to supply enough labour force to meet the needs of the national economy. They recommend all the growth in immigration should be in the economic categories, including skilled workers and business immigrants.
