Quebec’s 2022 immigration plan is not enough to address labour shortages

ANALYSIS: Four years after cutting immigration by 20 per cent, the province has returned to the target of welcoming over 50,000 immigrants in 2022. This is still not enough.

Quebec is looking to increase immigration once again.

This morning, the province announced it would welcome up to 52,500 new permanent residents in 2022.

Unfortunately, the province continues to fall short of the targets it needs to support stronger economic growth.
