Just under half of Canadians (46%) think that Canada should accept about the same number of immigrants as permanent residents in 2023, which is an increase of 10 percentage points since November 2020. Around one in three Canadians (34%) say that Canada should accept fewer than 340,000 immigrants, which has decreased by six percentage points since November 2020.

The margin of error for this survey is ±3.1 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.

This study was commissioned by Bloomberg News and the research was conducted by Nanos Research.
