"International migration to Canada reached an unprecedented level between April 1 and July 1, 2018, driving an overall population increase that was the second largest recorded for a three-month period since 1971.

Canada’s population grew by 168,687 in the second quarter of 2018, of which 82 per cent, or 138,978, was attributed to international migration.

Statistics Canada says this level of international migration was “never before seen for any quarter.” [quote fr. CIC News website 2019.08.10]

That’s nearly double that of Canada as a whole.
       But it’s clear many B.C. residents are unhappy about that. They want to pull up the drawbridge and slow down both population and economic growth.
       New immigrants, meanwhile, often find the Lower Mainland a hard place in which to find affordable housing, suitable work ... and to fit in socially.
       There seems to be a major disconnect between newcomers and longtime residents, especially when it comes to conflicting attitudes over women’ place in society...."
