Of all the happenings and surveys in other provinces, British Columbia seemed to be way more positive than other Canadian provinces. Nearly a decade ago, when the global financial crisis was at the peak, British Columbia was one of the provinces which welcomed immigrants to a very great extent. While 34% of people in Alberta do not believe in the thinking that the Canadian economy is benefitted from the immigrants, a surprising 46% of the people in British Columbia think the other way. The year 2019 has been a good start for British Columbia as the province has been issuing invitations to candidates under its various immigration streams. The province is looking forward to taking in more immigrants this year to meet the labour market shortage and has well understood the positive impact that immigrants create on its economy.
