Canada ranked the most accepting country in the world for migrants!

Gallup is an analysis and consulting company headquartered in Washington, well known for conducting public opinion surveys around the world. As early as 2017, Gallup released a version of the new immigrant acceptance index survey. At that time, Canada ranked fourth with a score of 8.14 out of 9. However, in Gallup’s latest second edition of the Migrant Acceptance Index, Canada was declared the most receptive country to immigrants in the world with a score of 8.46. Canadians perceive immigrants living in Canada (94%) and settling in their neighbourhoods (95%) as good things, while 91% expressed a positive reaction towards marriages with immigrants. Canadians between the ages of 30 and 44 are most accepting of new immigrants, followed by those aged between 45 and 54. Canadians between the ages of 15 and 29 are the least accepting of new immigrants, but Gallup believes this could be due to them being younger.
