Make immigration easier and increase the percentage of immigration allowance. The reason being that many people have family back home that they do not get to see often. They have to take time off to work and school which is hard. So many don't get to see family back home for 2-3 years.

I wish Canda will have more population in the next 150 years, will have more power, become a strong country and make the country very lively.

Though Canada says they welcome all immigrants and refugees, it was very difficult for me to get a student visa. The immigration/work/student visa process should be made much easier for more chances and opportunities to youth around the globe.
