Canada Immigration News

Canada to welcome up to 390,000 immigrants in 2022 Details of Canada's 2020-2022 Immigration Levels Plan have just been announced March 12, 2020 By Kareem El-Assal, Shelby Thevenot, Mohanad Moetaz And Alexandra Miekus 2.3kShares Immigrants are succeeding in CanadaCanada will welcome more than one million new permanent residents in the next three years. This was unveiled today in the federal government’s 2020-2022 Immigration Levels Plan. Canada continues its approach to gradually increase immigration levels. This is likely to give stakeholders time to adequately plan to support a larger population. Whereas Canada welcomed 320,000 newcomers in 2018, and 341,000 immigrants in 2019, it is again targeting the admissions of 341,000 immigrants in 2020. It is aiming to welcome an additional 351,000 in 2021, and another 361,000 in 2022. The plan provides Canada with the scope to welcome up to 390,000 immigrants in 2022. The most significant revelation from the announcement is Canada’s target for 2022 since today is the first time such information has become publicly available. In 2017, Canada reintroduced multi-year levels plans after the first attempt between 1982-1984 was disrupted by a recession. The return to multi-year plans is meant to help stakeholders such as urban planners forecast what steps they need to take to support the economic and social integration of newcomers.
