In a new article, two Canadian ministers write on the importance of immigration to the country’s economy.

“The progressive immigration policies we continue to implement are laying the foundation for Canada’s success in the 21st century.”

These are the words of two Canadian ministers who recently wrote on the importance of immigration to the country’s economy.

Marco Mendicino is Canada’s Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship while Navdeep Bains is the Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry.

Mendicino’s family arrived to Canada from Italy following the Second World War while Bains’ family arrived from India.
