In recent years, Canada has been welcoming increasing numbers of immigrants. It is now on track to welcome nearly 432,000 new permanent residents by 2022. Immigration is essential to the country’s economy, labour force, and diverse communities.
Status of immigrants
The latest census data reveal that over half of recent immigrants in Canada speak only French as their FOLS. Another quarter speak English as their FOLS, while only 5.3% speak neither English nor French. While Canada’s population is aging, this demographic will provide much-needed labour force flexibility.
In 2022, Canada’s immigration department expects to welcome 431,645 new immigrants. That number has already surpassed the previous record set in 2021. The latest available data shows the number of immigrants arriving in Canada, as well as the provinces and territories where they are settling. The IRCC rounds the data to the nearest five to protect the privacy of individual immigrants.
Work permits issued under IMP
The government of Canada has announced major changes to immigration benefit programs for foreign graduates. The program will offer post-graduation work permits to foreign nationals. These temporary work permits will help fill labour shortages in Canada caused by the pandemic and make it easier for foreign graduates to integrate into the Canadian workforce.
The changes are expected to have a significant impact on immigration in the future. For instance, the National Occupational Classification will play a crucial role in the immigration process. Applicants must specify the occupations that they have worked in before they can be considered for immigration.
The government of Canada has announced several new immigration benefits for foreign students and recent graduates. The government has also resumed Express Entry draws for CEC, FSW and FST candidates. These draws will allow candidates to stay in Canada while they look for a job. This will increase their chances of becoming permanent residents.
The number of immigrants in Canada has been growing over the past couple of decades. By 2022, there are projected to be nearly four hundred and thirty thousand new immigrants. This figure represents a dramatic increase from the 252,527 immigrants who arrived during 2000-2001. The increase is attributed to Canada’s commitment to supporting the economy, maintaining a strong labor force and fostering diverse communities.
Provincial Nominee Program
If you’re looking for a new place to live, you can benefit from Canada’s immigration program. Under the program, qualified economic immigrants can apply for permanent residence in Canada. The provinces and territories each have their own immigration program. Quebec is a unique case, and its program is separate from Canada’s. It is not governed by federal immigration laws, and offers more freedom in selecting and integrating immigrants. The province of Quebec has a skilled worker program that was launched in 1991.
As the population of Canada ages, immigration becomes more important to the country’s economy. Immigrants help meet the labor demand in the country, as they bring a relatively young pool of workers. Currently, Canada has a very low fertility rate, with only 1.5 births per woman. This means that the country continues to have a shortage of skilled workers. As a result, immigrants account for nearly one-quarter of the labor force in Canada.
The Government of Canada is taking measures to minimize the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Canada’s population. Its website features the latest updates on pandemic measures. The Government of Canada is committed to attracting qualified immigrants to Canada. In the wake of the recent pandemic, Canada is introducing a new immigration plan. The plan calls for a significant increase in the number of immigrants in 2021 and 2022, to reach a target of 421,000 in 2023.
Most recent immigrants in Canada chose to live in a major urban center. The largest proportions of recent immigrants resided in the three largest CMAs – Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver. However, the proportion of recent immigrants living in these centres decreased significantly from 56.8% in 2016 to 53.4% in 2022. The greatest decrease was seen in Montreal.
