It’s been a 2020 kind of year. We have been trying to anticipate the response from the Canadian government regarding immigration, given the United States immigration ban, but we could never have anticipated this. The Canadian government wants to grow the economy but with a population of only 37.4 million in the second-largest country in the world, that is proving to be quite challenging. That is why the Immigration and Refugee Council of Canada (IRCC) has been tasked with welcoming over 1.2 million immigrants over the next three years. That’s right, the IRCC will be awarding permanent residency to a little over 400,000 immigrants every year until 2023. If you are thinking about immigrating to Canada, your timing couldn’t be better.
The Canadian immigration targets for the next 3 years are:
- 2021 – 401,000 immigrants
- 2022 – 411,000 immigrants
- 2023 – 421,000 immigrants
Canada has one of the oldest populations, with 18 percent over the age of 65. That coupled with one of the lowest birth rates, 1.47 children per adult woman and you can see why we are struggling to expand. The solution is obvious, invite hard-working and skilled foreigners to become a part of our nation, to build an even better tomorrow for our next generation, and yours.
