Here’s how to ensure public support of Canadian immigration policy in the wake of Trump and Brexit

The election of Donald Trump and the Brexit vote in the U.K. brought to the surface the public’s concern and anger with U.S. and U.K. immigration policies. As a country built on immigration, Canada cannot afford to close its doors to the world’s best and brightest. Instead, as I argue in my latest CBC Op-ed, what Canada needs to do is ensure that immigration policy is a tool to create economic growth in Canada. Canada needs to focus on brining in immigrants who will create jobs, economic success and opportunities for Canadians and Canadian businesses.
