One fish's deluded view on Vancouver RE
http://www.theprovince.com/business/Program+links+skilled+immigrants+labour+need/5129779/story.html40,000 per year target for BC PNP "skilled immigrants".Quebec's Investors category for the next 12 months will see 7000 coming, and they are not restricted to live in Quebec. That is, in addition to Federal's 700 investors.Not forgetting the family sponsorship etc., BC will see an influx of international migration of 50,000 a year. By 2030, the target of 1 million more new residents in BC is about right.The writing is in the wall since the past 10 years.
"Effective July 1, 2011, the changes will affect new applicants to the federal skilled worker, federal investor and entrepreneur programs. However, these changes will not affect the number of permanent resident admissions in 2011 in these three categories."http://canadianimmigrant.ca/news-and-views/cic-makes-changes-to-economic-immigration-programs-to-reduce-backlogs/
