Every day momentum grows as Canada takes the lead on the world stage and drives growth here at home. This growth is being generated by targeted investments in our communities and an ambitious immigration plan to ensure that Canada attracts the best global talents to contribute to the economy. Minister Hussen has been the driving force of this plan and will speak with the Canadian Club Toronto to share some insight on why immigration matters to our future.

Join Minister Hussen as he explains how Canada remains a global leader in using a well-managed immigration system to help grow its middle class in the face of anti-immigrant rhetoric sweeping through countries around the world.
