The paper cites various statistics and state sponsored research studies as evidence that not only is Canada's immigrant population a significant percentage of the overall population, but it is one that is on the rise. The paper discusses the extent of this impact on Canada. The paper points out Canada's official terminology that broadly segregates Canada's population into immigrant and native-born camps. The paper concludes that how Canada reconciles these emerging social divisions may mean the difference between continued economic prosperity or increasing violence and poverty levels.
From the Paper:"Canada is deeply affected by immigration and the impact it is having on its demographic profile. With the mass influx of foreign immigrants over the last decade and certainly with the recent spike over the last several years, soon the term Canadian could very well imply that to be Canadian is to be foreign born more than it is to mean born and raised in Canada. While this is not a negative and certainly this argument proposes nothing negative about this potential characteristic, the fact that such an observation may eventually be possible is shocking to many people. In 2005, for example, there were 262k new immigrants which was represented an 11% increase over the previous 12 month period. While this may not, at first, seem expansive, when compared as a percentage to Canada's total population, it is significant."
