A year ago, Donald Trump, the president of the United States of America, said he didn't want the US accepting immigrants from Haiti or countries in Africa or similar "s-hole countries".

The parliament of Canada has announced plans to welcome more than one million new immigrants as permanent residents in coming three years.

About 13.7 percent of the U.S. population, roughly 1 in 7, in 2017 was foreign born, according to U.S. Census estimates.

Canada welcomed more than 286,000 permanent residents in 2017 and projects that number could reach 350,000 this year.

Harrington named Team Europe's captain for Ryder Cup 2020
I strongly looked at the fact that we are going to a golf course that is at least European style. The 47-year-old concedes he was previously naive to the true demands placed on team leaders.

Ahmed Hussen, Canada's minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship (IRCC) has said "Thanks in great part to the newcomers we have welcomed throughout our history, Canada has developed into the strong and vibrant country we all enjoy".

The decision has reportedly been taken to offset Canada's aging population and declining birth rate while growing its labor force.

Canada's friendly stance towards new residents comes as many other Western nations, including the U.S., are adopting more restrictive immigration policies. "Canada receives a lot of refugees every year".

Canada, a nation of not quite 37 million people, wants to add more than one million immigrants through 2021. This media house does not correct any spelling or grammatical error within press releases and commentaries.
