    HuffPost.ca story yesterday.

    About 24 per cent of millionaires are immigrants to Canada and another 24 per cent described themselves as first-generation Canadians with at least one parent born outside this country, BMO found.

    “For generations, many have considered Canada to be a place that provides opportunities for those who are willing to move here and contribute to the growth of the country. The findings of this study confirm this long-standing belief,” said Alex Dousmanis-Curtis, senior vice-president and head of BMO Harris Private Banking.

    “Today’s high-net worth Canadians, whether they were born here or have adopted Canada as their own, prove that hard work and an entrepreneurial spirit can result in prosperity and success.”

    And after 3 decades of 250,000/year legal immigration (2.5 million/year if Canada had U.S. population), this separate polling result:  

    Another series of polls, asking slightly different questions,indicate that since 2005, the number of Canadians who feel that there are too many immigrants entering Canada has continued to decline. A significant majority of Canadians surveyed, about two-thirds, said that the number of immigrants coming to Canada was “about right” in 2010.
