Canada 2020 Immigration Goal Still 341,000 Despite COVID

Canada's 2020-2022 Immigration Levels Plan to "continue growing the economy and creating middle class jobs through responsible increases in newcomers" will remain at welcoming 341,000 new immigrants in 2020, despite the impact of decreased immigration after March 18, 2020, through at least July 21, 2020, to slow the spread of the coronavirus. Statistics Canada announced that between January and March of 2020, 82% of Canada’s population growth came from immigration.

During the first three months of 2020, nearly 70,000 immigrants arrived in Canada at the beginning of this year compared to nearly 66,000 in the first quarter of 2019. When the borders reopen, Canada's Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is expected to be backlogged due to the many foreign worker travel delays due to COVID-19.

Canada immigration lawyer Evelyn Ackah advises their corporate and personal immigration clients to start their immigration applications and renewals now to beat the backlog:

We can anticipate that a company or individual who delayed filing their Express Entry application, for example, due to the coronavirus and waits to file when the borders reopen will find that there is a significant backlog and that all immigration applications and processes will take much longer than before the pandemic. How long it will take to return to normal process times we don't know. But we do know that by starting your immigration application today, when business returns to the "new normal" your business will have the international talent you need to thrive.

Canada Needs Economic Immigration

Canada has put into place programs to increase economic immigration to improve Canada's economy, create new jobs and increase global competitiveness. The Canadian government wants entrepreneurs and skilled workers, and the new immigration goals and programs provide opportunities for skilled and educated foreigners who want to move to Canada. Canada's business and economic immigration programs require that applicants be able to prove eligibility guideline qualifications for each program.
