Canadian immigration is popular with people from all over the world. In the past, the majority of immigrants moving to Canada arrived from countries in Europe. Today, most of the foreign-born individuals living in Canada came from countries in Africa, Asia and the Middle East. According to the most recent Canadian Census data, the percentage of people born in African countries who immigrate to Canada has increased from 1.4 percent in 1971 to 8.5 percent of the foreign-born population in 2016. It is predicted that individuals born in Africa will account for 11-12% of all immigrants living in Canada by 2036. The top five countries of birth for immigrants recently relocating to Canada from Africa are Nigeria, Algeria, Egypt, Morocco and Cameroon. As an example, there were 5,459 immigrants from Nigeria who were able to immigrate to Canada during 2017, according the annual Canadian immigration report released by the government in December 2018. Of course, people also immigrate to Canada from many other countries in Africa. One of the most famous immigrants to move to Canada from Africa was born in Somalia and after graduating from a Canadian university, becoming a lawyer and being elected to Canada’s Parliament, he was appointed by the Prime Minister to serve as the current Canadian Immigration Minister!
