The paper looks at the controversy over Canada's high immigration rates. The paper explains that while some argue that the immigration rate is too high and is thus straining social services, supporting an underground economy and increasing unemployment levels, others believe that immigrants are the engine of Canada's economic growth and are providing Canada with skills it cannot provide for itself. The writer's personal opinion is that Canada needs high immigration rates but should be more stringent about who is allowed entry and who is not.

From the Paper:

"The matter of immigration (specifically, the matter of a generous immigration policy) has long been a contentious issue in Canada. On the one hand, there are those who argue that an immigration policy that embraces high levels of new immigrants each year is what the Canadian economy desperately needs - especially in light of the fact that the native-born birthrate is declining steadily and Canadian employers are finding themselves unable to fill critical positions because of a serious dearth of skilled employees. On the other hand, those who oppose a liberal immigration plan point out that many immigrants never do find work in their vocation of choice and are forced into ill-paying jobs that are incongruous with their skills - thus raising the possibility that the less-fortunate among them will turn to welfare. "
