Toronto (PRWEB) June 26, 2012
CanadaFAQ.ca announced today publication of a new inforgraphic, designed to present some important facts about immigrants settling in Canada, facts that every Canadian should know.
The future of Canadian immigration policies has re-entered the public debate and aroused controversy. Thus the new infographic, which uses data from Citizenship and Immigration Canada, aims to present a profile of immigrant populations and help Canadians learn about them.
Peter Todorov (president of Art Branch, Inc., the parent company of CanadaFAQ.ca) enlisted the help of Tsveta Mirtcheva, the lead web designer at Art Branch Inc.) to design the immigration infographic.
“Canada has always been a country with strong immigration traditions, and it’s a well-known fact that immigrants are the lifeblood of our nation. People from all around the world come to Canada to start a new, better life, sharing their diverse backgrounds and making our country stronger and more competitive,” said Peter Todorov, President of Art Branch Inc.
The infographic makes use of Canadian immigration statistics for 2011, presenting some important facts about immigrants, the continents and countries they come from, the top immigration destinations, and the major immigration categories.
Immigration is a key factor for the country’s socio-economic development, and the infographic provides important immigration information, offered in an easily digestible form. Given the vast territory and relatively small population of Canada, immigration is essential for its economic growth. It makes Canadian businesses more productive and the economy larger. Immigrants are not only workers – they are consumers who buy food, clothing, cars, and housing. The higher level of consumption results in more job openings to produce more goods. Canada is also a country built by immigrants coming from over 200 countries. This has promoted the growth of a multicultural society, based on intercultural dialogue, communication culture, and cultural tolerance. Canada’s multicultural reality shapes the social and cultural life of the country, and immigrants contribute to and enhance the cultural heritage of the country. Canadians should be more concerned about and involved in crafting and implementing immigration policies. This is important for Canada’s future socio-economic development.
