Edmonton's population is growing rapidly and according to a recent report from the Conference Board of Canada, 30,000 new internationals will arrive in the city this year Expected to come.

Last year, 33,000 new people came to the city, which was three times the number of the previous 20 years. According to the director of the Conference Board Economic Forecasting, there are several reasons behind the large number of people coming to the city.

The biggest reason is that the federal government has increased the speed of immigration. In addition, Edmonton and Calgary have more reasonable housing prices and higher wages than Toronto and Vancouver due to population growth. He said that the economy of the state has also affected it.

The city's housing policy is attracting many people. The board says international migration to the City will decrease over the next two years. Around 21,800 people are expected to move to the city in 2024 and 18,400 in 2025, but this will be a good number over the past 20 years. He said that due to increase in population, there may be trouble in roads and water system. So city councils need to focus on this.
