Canada accepts three times more non‐​college-educated immigrants than the US

Although many Americans believe the US should have a merit-based immigration system like Canada and not accept "illiterate" or "non-skilled" immigrants, Canada admits about three times more workers without a college education per capita than the United States.

According to Statistics Canada’s reports, from 2015 to 2019, Canada admitted 244,800 non‐​college-educated immigrants over the age of 25 (0.65 percent of the Canadian population), while the US accepted 729,797 immigrants with the same characteristics during the same period (0.22 percent of the US population).


In addition, Canada has admitted more immigrants with bachelor's degrees and four times more workers with advanced degrees than the United States, admitting four times more immigrants per capita than its neighbour.
