Expanding immigration without addressing systemic racism may discourage newcomers from immigrating to Canada

According to Themrise Khan, a professional researcher, Canada must confront racism in its society to keep attracting and retaining migrants, especially now that the government is looking to increase immigration targets.

Although there is public support for immigration, Khan argues that newcomers frequently encounter discrimination and surveillance, which may discourage them from staying in Canada.

To support her statement, she provides examples such as increased surveillance of certain immigrant groups, scrutiny of financial resources, and bias against migrant workers.

Ultimately, Canada needs to address racism to reap the economic benefits of immigration.
