A new survey has found half of Canadians want to see the number of immigrants coming to Canada lowered.
The Angus Reid Institute found 49 per cent of surveyed Canadians want to see the federal government’s 2018 target of 310,000 immigrants reduced. In 2014, 36 per cent said it should be reduced.
In contrast, 31 per cent said the target should stay the same. Six per cent wanted to see more immigration.
