Approximately 20% (50,000) of the immigrants to Canada each year are children and youth younger than 15 years of age.

Sure- and as you say they'll never buy a home or need someplace to live! SO problem solved!!!

Uh oh, the number of units needed is plummeting again...
Absolutely - 15 year olds will never want to buy a home someday and as you've already pointed out children don't even NEED a home to live in, and certainly don't buy one! So you've saved us again!!!

With new kids coming will there be a need for half a million plus foreign students gobbling up accommodations?
Well you tell us!! Obviously you've got this figured out entirely! I was worried because i was trusting all those bank reports, real estate reports, Global economic reports statcan population reports etc but now that you've drilled down to the facts i can rest at ease knowing you got this!

Apparently you dont like statistics so Ill give more.

20% being kids means at minimum 60% are families needing 1 unit.

How many needed units now? Even less.

Absolutely! your math is impeccable! 20 percent of immigrants being kids means AT LEAST a minumum of 60 percent are families! For sure. The math totally checks out!

Orphans! Orphans who buy houses instead of renting?

I guess they can live on the streets with Gen X if they dont want to rent.

Fucking statistics....

In 2019, Canada admitted 341,180 permanent residents, compared to 321,055 the previous year. Among those admitted, 58% were economic immigrants and their accompanying immediate families

shitty me for rounding.


17% are family class meaning coming to reunite with family already here...


Again the units needed drops.
