Skilled immigrants power company growth, build sustainable communities and contribute to BC's economic prosperity. Immigrants to BC are more than twice likely as Canadian-born residents to have a post-secondary degree and they innovate at a higher rate than the native-born population. On the whole, immigrants contribute more to the public purse than they receive in benefits. Using the talents and experience that immigrants bring to the labour market can bring the Canadian economy between $2.4 billion and $3.4 billion a year.
