Canada Aims To Accept Over 400,000 Permanent Residents In 2021
Most of us make investments in different funds and schemes to achieve financial stability. Similarly, it’s important to make investments in our future to secure it, especially in the uncertain times we are currently facing due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Many will consider seeking permanent residence in Canada at this time a poor choice, considering the low economic activity across the world at the moment. Instead, it can be a career-defining moment for many. The reason being – Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) aims to accept 401,000 permanent residents in 2021 via a variety of immigration programs. Following the recession in the year 2008, Canada decided to bet on accepting permanent residents aggressively that eventually helped it come out of the recession quickly and even stronger.
Notably, Canada never halted its immigration programs since the pandemic started a year ago. The programs have continued to issue Invitations to Apply (ITAs) by conducting regular draws, some even at an increased frequency. It will result in Canada breaking its Express Entry record this year. It also goes on to reflect the confidence Canada has in the skills of foreign nationals.
With world-class career opportunities in Canada, you can redefine your career with expert assistance from IMB Immigration Law helmed by Ravneet Kaur Brar and moving to Canada as a permanent resident under a variety of economic immigration programs, whether the federal government’s Express Entry program or one of the Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs).
Immigration Levels Plan
This isn’t just about 2021, the 2021-2023 Immigration Levels Plan aims to accept another 411,000 immigrants in 2022, and 421,000 in 2023. This will apparently be the highest level of immigration targeted in Canada’s history.
The Immigration Levels Plan is the most significant immigration-related announcement made by Canada each year. It summaries the number of new permanent residents Canada aims to welcome over the coming years, along with the categories it plans to admit them under. Following are the categories under which Canada welcomes immigrants:
- Humanitarian and compassionate grounds
Among the categories, the economic immigration category is the top priority for the country through which Canada seeks to induct skilled professionals in its workforce who can make significant contributions to its economic growth.
High Levels Of Immigration
Canada is looking to maintain high levels of immigration to counterbalance the negative economic and fiscal impacts of the low birth rate and its ageing population.
The country has one of the world’s oldest populations, with people aged 65 and above forming nearly 18 per cent of its population. This coupled with one of the world’s lowest birth rates leaves them little choice but to accept skilled immigrants in large numbers to sustain their economic activity. The challenges of growing its economy and supporting government spending can be alleviated by welcoming more immigrants to support the labour force and economic growth.
In a positive sign, a prominent study found that public support for immigration in Canada has increased during the pandemic, with most Canadians believing that immigration makes Canada a better country while being a diverse and multicultural place to live. Another study found that Canadians generally see immigration positively for long-term economic recovery.
