Welcome to Canada!

Firstly, let’s discuss a few interesting facts about the history of immigration in Canada. Why is Canada one of the major destinations for immigrants?

There is no single view on immigration in Canada. People will always have different opinions. However, Canada has always had high immigration rates throughout history. This can be linked to the late 19th century, where workers needed workers to build the Canadian Pacific Railway and farmers to grow food. The need for workers included bringing Chinese migrants to build the railway and advertising in Europe to find farmers.

Today, similar efforts are needed to find workers in Alberta and other rural Canadian provinces. In fact, Alberta continuously sends out nation-wide calls for many different skills and trades workers. Alberta is also one of Canada’s richest provinces in terms of natural resources.

Another factor contributing to the immigration question is Canada’s low birth rate (10.8 births per 1000 people). The theory is that new residents will help Canada grow.

The Ontario Human Rights Code

Our strong Canadian values and human rights are another reason we have high rates of newcomers.

According to Canada’s government, human rights are rights inherent to all human beings, regardless of status. Human rights include the right to life and liberty, freedom from slavery and torture, freedom of opinion and expression, the right to work and education and many more.

The Ontario Human Rights Code protects newcomers, immigrants and all Canadians from discrimination and harassment based on the following: race, sex, colour, ancestry, place of origin, ethnic origin, marital or same-sex partner status, sexual orientation, age, disability, citizenship, family status, or religion.

You have the right to be free from discrimination and harassment based on these categories, whether you are in the community or your workplace. You’re also entitled to complain to the Human Rights Commission if you feel you are being discriminated against or harassed.
