who lives in one country
This is
And moves to another
It'll be called Immigration
This is bigger.
Its big, but...
Too big for screen
Because I immigrated
to a non-native
country I am known
as an immigrant
Some people do not like immigrants because they were not born in that country, especially because of their race, color, religion, language, culture, traditions, and many other things.
Immigrants that come at an older age have a very hard time getting along with society. It takes time for them to learn the language, culture, traditions, history, and laws of that country.
Canadian Immigration History
When upper Canada became the first province in the British Empire to abolish slavery. In turn thousands of black slaves escaped the US through the underground railway.
During the Scottish modernization, Scottish highlands refugees settled in Canada

Deprived of political and religious freedom, 20,000 Soviet Jews settled in Canada
The United Nations awarded Canada the Nansen Medal for its outstanding humanitarian tradition of settling refugees
After decades being denied by the politics, thousands of Pakistani Bangali muslims fled to Canada in the outbreak of the Bangali liberation war
Refugees from more than 140 countries were either resettled or were granted asylum in Canada
Canada expands its refugee resettlement programs by 20% over three years
Thousands of persecuted jews fleeing pogroms, sought refuge in Canada

Also examples
Immigration has a
impact on Canada in every way.
It over populates an area and in others it under populates.
In Canada many classes have a lot of students that are born outside of Canada and some that have only a few.
But there is nothing to be shocked about.
In 1911, about 55% of the population of
Alberta and British Columbia were born outside of Canada,
while less than 10% of Quebec's population was born outside.
Le Graph of economic immigration
In 2008, 18.4% of Canadian residents were born in other countries, but 95% of them were living in just 4 provinces. These four have a spotlight on them because immigrants choose to live there and they are:
Le graph of type of arrival
Le graph of where majority of them have settled
Some Canadians disagree with immigration, because they think new arrivals as
in their lives. They bring benefits and difficulties

Benefits they would bring
New cultural treats to share with others
Bigger community
More customers for businesses
They help broaden our culture
Difficulties they may bring
Higher taxes paid by citizens
Fewer jobs in certain professions
Increased crime
Higher property prices
Some arrives may face problems such as
They might not know either of the Canadian national languages & it’s quite hard to find someone already in Canada who speaks that language. Nowadays languages have more than one type. For example the french spoken in Canada differs from the one spoken in France.
Every culture celebrates their own type of celebration & they are kind of used to the way they celebrate things. But when they move, they might not find the right place to celebrate.
First of all, they need time to settle in & then more time to get used to Canada. They can’t find jobs as soon as possible. Plus finding jobs isn’t as easy as it seems.
Kids mostly teenagers are used to their own school back home & it’s hard for them to get used to a new school. They might consider not going to school at all, but they need education.
Currently, Canada is known as a country with a large immigration policy which is reflected in Canada's ethnic diversity. According to the 2001 census by Statistics Canada, Canada has 34 ethnic groups with at least one hundred thousand members each, of which 10 have over 1,000,000 people and numerous others represented in smaller amounts.
16.2% of the population belonged to visible minorities
Most numerous among these are South Asian 4.0% of the population, Chinese 3.9%, Black descent 2.5%, and Filipino 1.3%. Other than Canadians of British, Irish, or French descent there are more members of Ethnic groups not classified as visible minorities than this 16.2%; the largest are: German 10.18%, and Italian 4.63%, with 3.87% being Ukrainian, 3.87% being Dutch, and 3.15% being Polish. Other minority ethnic origins include Russian 1.60%, Norwegian 1.38%, Portuguese 1.32%, and Swedish 1.07%.
In Conclusion
No matter how far you migrate even by moving to a different house, you will always face difficulty, but in the end it pays off.
