  • Over 400,000 Immigrants Can Move to Canada in 2021

    The Canadian Immigration Minister held a news conference on October 30, 2020, to unveil the country’s new goals for immigration to Canada over the next three years.


    Since Canadian immigration levels will be lower in 2020 because of the pandemic and associated international travel restrictions, and because there are not enough skilled workers available for many jobs in Canada, the government wants 401,000 immigrants to move to Canada in 2021 (50,000 more than the plan announced in March 2020).  


    By comparison, a record 341,000 immigrants were approved for immigration to Canada as new permanent residents in 2019, with “economic immigrants” and their families accounting for 58% of the Canadian immigration visas granted that year.


    According to the new three-year Canadian immigration plan, around 60% of new permanent residents will be economic immigrants and their accompanying family members.


    Furthermore, the government is planning on approving 411,000 immigrants for relocation to Canada in 2022, and issuing 421,000 Canadian immigration visas in 2023.


    Overall, the new three-year Canadian immigration plan has established a goal of welcoming 1.2 million immigrants to live and work in Canada as permanent residents during the 2021-2023 timeframe.


    The previous plan for immigration to Canada announced in March 2020 had set a target of one million new immigrants over a three-year period.


    Marco Mendicino, the Canadian Immigration Minister, was quoted as saying, “Immigration is essential to getting us through the pandemic, but also to our short-term economic recovery and our long-term economic growth.”


    The Canadian Immigration Minister added, “As we look to recovery, newcomers create jobs not just by giving our businesses the skills they need to thrive, but also by starting businesses themselves. Our plan will help to address some of our most acute labour shortages and to grow our population to keep Canada competitive on the world stage.”


    According to the Canadian government (October 30, 2020), immigrants living in Canada “account for 33% of all business owners with paid staff, and 25% of workers in our health sector are immigrants.”


    Immigrants also account for around 22% of the 37.7 million people living in Canada and they are an important part of the Canadian economy, society and culture.


    Although some countries have reduced their immigration levels in recent years and support for immigrants and immigration is lower in many parts of the world, Canada has steadily increased the number of immigrants it welcomes each year and support for Canadian immigration and immigrants among a majority of the people living in Canada is stronger today than it was in 2019.
