Majority of Canadians think immigration should be limited
A Leger poll in February had almost half of respondents saying they believe Canada welcomes too many immigrants and refugees. And an EKOS poll released last month suggested 42 per cent of Canadians believe the country accepts too many non-white newcomers.
In 2017, Immigration Department officials warned of a "tipping point"
that could undermine public support for welcoming immigrants if public
discourse was not approached with care, according to internal data prepared by
the Immigration Department for a committee of deputy ministers.
