Trudeau is willing to help Quebec with a temporary reduction in immigration by 20%

Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau demonstrated a new willingness to help Quebec Premier François Legault temporarily reduce immigration to the province by more than 20% even as Ottawa promotes higher immigration as the key to a stronger economy. More than 90% of the thousands of people who have crossed between the US and Canada have done so through Quebec.

The Quebec government is seeking $300 million in compensation from the Federal Government, but Ottawa is only offering to cover $140 million. According to Minister Dominic LeBlanc, reducing immigration at a time when many Quebec businesses are facing severe labour shortages will be a challenge.​
