In this Globe and Mail op-ed, MobSquad Founder & Executive Chair Irfhan Rawji and Institute for Canadian Citizenship CEO Daniel Bernhard argue that rather than constricting immigration until Canada’s housing and healthcare problems are resolved, we should look to immigration as the solution. They believe that the answer lies in recruiting more skilled immigrants to fill the large labour gaps in these areas.
“Immigrants don’t simply occupy existing housing. Fact is, they built most of our current housing stock and could build even more. Each worker occupies one home (less, if they share) and builds dozens more for everyone else – an irrefutable net gain.”
