There are some good points here but the emphasis on "what is the effect of immigration on GDP-per-capita" is wrong-headed. Canada favours young immigrants whose peak earning years are ahead of them. This could mechanically reduce GDP-per-capita, even if it increased every single residents' productivity and income. If there is something missing from this discussion I'd say it's that red tape and restrictions on building housing do threaten to reduce the gains from immigration.
