Canada Announces Historic Immigration Plan

The parliament announced the plan publicly.

Canada's parliament unveiled a plan to welcome more than one million refugees over the next three years.

The announcement is a stark contrast to the rise of nationalism in other countries across the globe.

"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," Ahmed Hussen, Canada's minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship (IRCC), told CNN.
