  • Quebec releases its immigration plan for 2023

    Canada Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Quebec is well able to welcome 112,000 immigrants per year, rubbishing claims made by provincial Premier Francois Legault.

    The Liberal leader says the French-speaking province could easily make the vast majority of those newcomers francophone.

    “Quebec at the moment is fully capable of welcoming 112,000 immigrants a year,” Trudeau said.

    The comments completely contradict the views of Legault, who recently said it would be suicide for Quebec to welcome any more than the roughly 50,000 set out in its recent immigration levels plan.

    Trudeau blamed the lack of Quebec immigration for the province’s labour shortage, pointing out the issues businesses are having with hiring staff.

    “There are entrepreneurs in the Beauce unable to carry out contracts because they can’t hire enough people,” he said.

    The conflicting comments lay bare the gap in political philosophy between the federal government and Quebec provincial government.

    Canada is set to ramp up immigration to 500,000 per year by 2025. But Quebec’s vastly popular premier looks unlikely to budge from 50,000.

    This latest Quebec levels plan reveals much about Legault’s attitude towards big business in the province.

    With 22 percent of Canada’s population, Quebec is entitled to the same proportion of the annual immigration intake.

    The federal government’s plan targets 465,000 newcomers next year, which means Quebec has the right to welcome 102,300 newcomers, but it is choosing to bring in just half that number.

    With its plan to ensure that all Quebec immigrants are Francophone, the CAQ is showing that it is an anti-big business and cares only about its nationalistic agenda.

    Quebec businesses are urging the province to increase immigration to help combat a chronic labour shortage, but the CAQ refuses to do that.

    It is telling that the majority of those businesses are based in Montreal, where the CAQ enjoys very little support. Legault prefers to pander to his support base to keep power, despite that being detrimental to the future of the province’s economy.
