Canada is a rarity: an industrial country that receives fewer immigrants than desired. Canada aims to accept 300,000 immigrants a year, and usually receives about 275,000.
Since 1967, Canada has used a point system to favor the admission of young immigrants with education and knowledge of French and/or English. So-called economic immigrants are almost 60 percent of all those admitted to Canada, that is, at least one member of the family passed the points test.
