Immigration In Canada


             Immigration is a worldwide phenomenon. Canada is an increasingly
             ethnically diverse country. Canada's reflection of ethnic diversity is due to the
             increasing flow of immigration. The vast majority of Canadians are born in
             Canada, and most of them are from European descent.
             Close to, half of all immigrants that came to Canada between 1991 and
             1996 reveal a first language other than French or English. During this time,

             reason the Canadian government in the 1980's decided to balance the low
             birth rate by allowing more immigration into the country.
