Need a reason to move to Canada as soon as possible? Fear Not Travelers!

Canada continues to break barriers and never seizes to surprise us when it comes to immigration.

On the 30th of October, Canada announced its 2021-2023 Immigration Levels Plan, where it will target the highest level of immigration in its history.

Over the coming three years, Canada will have a goal to welcome the following level of new Permanent Residents:

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

Did You Know?

1913 was the only year in which Canada welcomed 401,000 immigrants. Never again did they put out such an ambitious goal; until now.

Why such high targets?

Canada is maintaining high levels of immigration to counterbalance the negative economic and fiscal impacts of its aging population and low birth rate.

Taking the demographic with age 65 and over which nearly accounts to 18% of the total population along with the world’s lowest birth rate at about 1.47 births per woman into consideration, Canada will face challenges developing their economy and supporting government expenditure in the future. These challenges can be lifted by welcoming more immigrants to compliment labour force and economic growth.

If you are doubtful whether you can make it, you would be relieved to know that the 2021-2023 Immigration Levels Plan has been made with solid intentions to welcome about 60% of all immigrants under economic class programs, including through Express Entry and the Provincial Nominee Program. So as long as your profile meets the relevant parameters expected by the Government of Canada, you best believe that you are on the road to achieve a Permanent Resident status.
