Number of immigrants arriving in Canada, by province 2020

Ontario was the province with the most immigrants in 2020, with 139,071 immigrants arriving between July 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020. Nunavut, Canada’s northernmost territory, had 25 immigrants arrive in the same period.

Immigration to Canada

Over the past 20 years, the number of immigrants to Canada has held steady and is just about evenly split between men and women. Asian countries dominate the list of leading countries of birth for foreign-born residents of Canada, although the United Kingdom, the United States, and Italy all make the list as well.

Unemployment among immigrants

In 2019, the unemployment rate for immigrants in Canada was highest among those who had been in the country for five years or less. The unemployment rate decreased the longer someone had been in Canada, and unemployment was lowest among those who had been in the country for more than ten years, coming more into line with the average unemployment rate for the whole of Canada.
