Rich immigrants ditching Quebec: Moving to B.C. after being accepted
Nine out of 10 wealthy immigrants accepted into Quebec’s investor immigrant program never come to Quebec, federal Immigration Minister Jason Kenney said Friday.
« I do think it is peculiar that the province that was given power to select immigrants primarily to reinforce the French fact in Quebec is in fact flipping Asian people into Vancouver, » Kenney said during a meeting with the Montreal Gazette editorial board.
« In principle, the Quebec immigration program should be about immigration to Quebec. »
« People in Vancouver are always asking me, ‘Why are we facilitating this, because it is leading to inflation of real estate prices?’ Which is great if you are well-established and you have paid down your mortgage. But if you are a young family starting out, good luck being able to afford a house in Vancouver. A lot of people who aren’t rooted in Vancouver are inflating the costs. »
