Funding distributed between Quebec and other provinces becomes even more unbalanced. Although Quebec reduced its immigration levels two years ago, the province will get $650 million to help settle the 30,000 to 35,000 new permanent residents it expects in 2021. The rest provinces of Canada that outstrip immigration to Quebec, will receive only $741 million to help integrate about 370,000 new permanent residents. British Columbia that expects to have twice more new residents than Quebec, will receive $109 million, while Ontario, which normally takes in 45 percent of all immigrants to Canada, will get just $372 million. This means when Quebec has more than $20,000 to support each of its new permanent residents, new residents of Ontario, British Columbia, and other provinces will be allocated only about $2000.
