Immigration: Exploring Canada's Open Door Policy

Did you know that one of every six Canadian residents was born outside the country. Every year approximately 200,000 people become Canadian citizens and take an oath of citizenship at ceremonies across the country. Immigration has helped to make Canada a culturally rich, prosperous and progressive nation but what about the costs and challenges that accompany the welcoming of these new citizens. To pretend that each and every story is filled with sunshine and rainbows would be just that-pretending.  In this session hear a panel of experts weigh in on the benefits and costs of growing our Canadian culture and economy through immigration.
