Immigration distribution in Canada is rapidly changing

David Campbell – A blog about economic development in Atlantic 



It is pretty impressive the change in the destination of immigrants in the past few years.  From 1991 to 2006, Ontario attracted 54.5 percent of all immigrants into Canada (using Census data). In the  most recent year that is down to 40.5 percent.  BC is down a bit but the rest of the country is up.
