Many immigrants to Canada settle in the GTA and environs

For the next three years, the Government of Canada strives to welcome an additional 1.45 million immigrants - a goal that will help strengthen and enrich Canada's culture and society. As the Canadian population ages, they become increasingly crucial for sustaining a necessary workforce. In 2022, a record of 431,645 new permanent residents settled in the nation - with nearly one-quarter settling in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). To give some perspective on this remarkable influx of people, it is the equivalent of adding an additional city similar to Halifax.
