By 2025, the Canadian government hopes to welcome 500,000 immigrants.
Aiming to welcome 465,000 new immigrants in 2023, 485,000 immigrants in 2024, and 500,000 new immigrants in 2025, Canada Government recently unveiled its Immigration Levels Plan 2023–2025. The nation welcomed over 405,000 immigrants in 2021, breaking its previous record, and is anticipating welcoming about 432,000 immigrants this year.
The number of immigrants Canada hopes to accept annually is set forth in the Immigration Levels Plan. Growing the economy, reuniting families, and providing asylum to refugees fleeing persecution abroad are among Canada’s immigration objectives.
Goals for PNP and Express Entry Will Rise
The majority of new permanent residents come from economic class programmes, such as those in Express Entry or Provincial Nomination Programs (PNPs). Following are the new targets for Express Entry landings:
- 82,880 in 2023
- 109,020 in 2024 \s114,000 in 2025
The Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) will continue to be Canada’s top admissions programme for immigrants from lower socioeconomic classes, and its goals will also increase to
- 105,500 in 2023
- 110,000 in 2024
- 117,500 in 2025
Additional PGP Admissions
The goal of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is to reunite families. The Immigration Levels Plan’s second-largest permanent residence class after economic class programmes is family class sponsorship. A spouse, partner, child, or other family member sponsors the applicant for permanent residence under family immigration programmes. Under the spouses, partners, and children programme, Canada Government will continue to aim to accept 80,000 new immigrants annually.
There will be 28,500 participants in the Parents and Grandparents Program in 2023, 34,000 in 2024, and 36,000 in 2025.
It is anticipated that fewer refugees and aid workers will enter the country.
The plan for immigration levels includes allocations for refugees and immigrants who qualify as humanitarians. Refugees from dangerous countries are granted asylum in Canada. Canada Government has high humanitarian goals due to its ongoing efforts to complete several campaigns, such as welcoming 40,000 Afghan refugees. The overall refugee class target will be just over 76,000 new arrivals in 2023 and 2024, then it will drop to 72,750 in 2025. It is anticipated that the humanitarian class target will drop from almost 16,000 in 2023 to 8,000 by 2025.
