Quotes and Excerpts from Rajiv in the article:
Will Canada-India tension affect immigration process?
Rajiv S. Khanna, managing attorney at Immigration.com, the Law Offices of Rajiv S. Khanna, PC, said, “Despite the tension, immigration wise, they don't have a choice."
Explaining further, he said, Canadians need immigrants because their population growth could soon be close to 0% without having immigration to sustain them by 2030.
As per the official figures presented by the Canadian government, by 2035 million Canadians will retire and the ratio will be then down to only three workers for every retiree means 25% of their population would have retired.
“Hence, if they don't have immigrants, they will not be able to offer that same level of services to its residents. So in other words, they need the younger people amongst the immigrants to support the aging education, aging population of Canada."
Answering whether Indian immigrants living there can face hostility amid the deteriorating relationship, Khanna said, “Justin Trudeau's government is two years from elections. And, they have been polling very poorly. In fact, in a recent poll in August, 56% Canadians believe that Trudeau should step down as the leader of the Liberal Party and the Conservatives are on on on their necks."
In such a scenario, taking harsh measures against Indian immigrants living there, trying to put curb on immigration from India can backfire for him.
