- Canadians, many private and public stakeholders and governments agree that Canada needs immigrants to sustain its current prosperity;
- Canada has received immigrants in excess of 1% of the population in several previous years and has become stronger as a result;
- Immigration has strengthened Canada's multicultural and multifaith fabric;
- Canada is attempting to fill its demographic needs through temporary rather than permanent immigration;
Therefore be it resolved
that the CCR demand that the government of Canada set immigration levels at a minimum of 1% of the population and invest the resources needed for successful settlement and integration.
