China has always been the main source of Canadian immigration, with the main demographic of immigrants being foreign students. But since last year, there are fewer students and immigrants coming to Canada, and the source of Canadian immigration has also changed. Statistics Canada recently announced the landing status of new immigrants which showed that among the more than 220,000 new immigrants, 18,510 new immigrants came from China. This only accounted for 8.3 percent of the total number of new immigrants, which was less than 8 percent of the same period in the past two years. Even though Chinese immigrants have decreased, they still rank second in contributing to the number of Canadian immigrants after India.
