Canada Immigration Targets (2021-2023)
Canada wants 400K immigrants
Canada’s Immigration Targets for 2021-2023
On November 1st, 2018, the Canadian government announced its “multi-year immigration plan” that aims to bring 401,000 permanent residents in 2021.
Once again, the Canadian government argues that the goal is to support both Canadian businesses and labour market needs. This time, the government justifies this increase “to help the Canadian economy recover from COVID-19, drive future growth and create jobs for middle class Canadians.”
The economic class will continue to account for the majority (58%) of all admissions; the family class will account for 26% and 15% will be admitted under the humanitarian and refugee categories.
