Support for immigration in Canada has dropped since last year

Publish Date: 02/11/2023

The Environics Institute, a Canadian research agency that conducts public opinion surveys and collects data on government, social and economic issues, has released its annual study on Canadian public opinion on immigration .The report found that over the past year, Canadians have become pessimistic about the direction of the country and the economy. It notes that they have doubts about the government's ability to plan for future challenges. This includes the perceived challenges posed by immigration.

The Environics Institute worked in partnership with the Century Initiative, which is a non-partisan organization that aims to implement policies and programs that would increase Canada's population to 100 million by 2100.

The study is conducted each year to gauge Canadian opinions on immigration and refugees. It is based on telephone interviews conducted with 2,002 Canadians between September 4 and 17, 2023. A sample of this size drawn from the population produces results accurate to within plus or minus 2.2 percentage points in 19 out of 20 samples. Most Canadians feel that immigration is good for Canada's economy. However, when compared to last year, the numbers show that there is somewhat less belief in immigration's positive economic impact.
