3/4 of Respondents Want Immigrants Tested for Canadian Values: Calgary Immigration Lawyer Evelyn Ackah Responds

Radio-Canada commissioned a survey to determine Canadian's attitudes to immigrants. When publishing the results, the French-language radio station noted that in 2011, 1 out of every 5 Canadians were immigrants, and that Canada welcomed more than 320,000 immigrants last year compared to the average 250,000.

  • 75% of respondents think they should be tested on “Canadian values"
  • +50% half are concerned about the future of culture and identity
  • 46% think immigrants make Canada a better place to live
  • 40% of respondents think there are too many immigrants and that is a threat to the “purity” of the country
  • 23% would favour a ban on Muslim immigration to Canada
  • 32% of Quebecois would favour a ban on Muslim immigration to Canada

According to Radio-Canada:

The survey may be a shock for many Canadians who believe this country to be immune to the anti-immigrant sentiments that have swept the U.S. and some European countries.

In an interview with Calgary Eyeopener, Canadian immigration lawyer Evelyn Ackah said:
