Available Expert - Canadian government to boost immigration by 13 per cent

Thursday, November 2, 2017

Queen’s University immigration expert Sharry Aiken is available to comment on the Canadian government’s announcement that they will admit nearly one million new immigrants by the year 2020.

“Today’s announcement is unsurprising and somewhat disappointing,” says Professor Aiken. “I had hoped for a much bolder vision, especially in regard to refugees coming to our country.”
