Canada to Welcome Over 1,200,000 Immigrants 2021-2023

Blog posted on by Evelyn Ackah in Immigration and Immigration Law

Canada to Welcome Over 1,200,000 Immigrants 2021-2023

Despite restrictions due to the COVID pandemia, Canada has reaffirmed their plan to welcome over 1,200,000 immigrant newcomers between 2021 and 2023. In the Fall of 2020, Canada announced their Immigration Levels Plan 2021-2023 and plans to increase immigration to Canada over the coming three years.

IRCC will welcome over 400,000 immigrant newcomers per year beginning in 2021:

  • 2021: 401,000
  • 2022: 411,000
  • 2023: 421,000

More than 9 million Canadians will reach retirement age in the next decade. With an ageing workforce and a need for skilled talent, by 2031 immigration is expected to account for 80% of Canada’s population growth, up from the current 75%.

Improved IRCC Services To Meet Immigration Goals

Canada has initiated new programs and services to help reach its immigration goals.

IRCC has expanded offices in Nova Scotia in order to process more applications and shorten the processing times that have grown longer during the pandemic and will be primarily dedicated to family class overseas applications.

Canada business immigration lawyer Evelyn Ackah welcomes the changes to immigration programs and policies:

"Expediting and streamlining the immigration process is vital - the system is not working now. None of the programs met their standard last fiscal year, and the trend is getting slower and slower. Processing times for Express Entry were getting longer before the pandemic hit. When they first launched it a few years ago, it was incredible - but processing times grew, and now with COVID people and businesses are in jeopardy. Canada needs immigration to grow our economy and create jobs for Canadians."
