53% of Canadians think the immigration level in Canada is too high

According to a recent Nanos poll, most Canadians (53%) believe the government's plan to accept 465,000 new permanent residents is too high.

This is a significant shift from a few months ago when only 34% of Canadians thought immigration was too high. Canada has traditionally been pro-immigration, but there seems to be a changing sentiment due to the recent increase in immigration levels.

In 2014, Canada welcomed 260,404 new permanent residents, which was considered high.

However, last year, immigration reached 437,180, and when accounting for non-permanent immigration, the Canadian population increased by over one million.

This represents a 2.7% annual rise in population, offsetting any per-capita benefits from Canada's GDP growth.
