Canada has set a new record by inviting 401,000 new permanent residents in 2021. This was also the immigration target set for 2021,
now achieved by Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). The number of new immigrants Canada welcomes each year on PR visa is based on the annual Immigration Levels Plan,
which the government discloses in Parliament.
This year, Canada’s Express Entry System also created a history by issuing most number of invitations (i.e.1,14,431 invitations) in a single year.

The Immigration accounts for almost hundred percent of country’ labour force growth. Approximately, 75 percent of Canada’s population growth comes from immigration, customarily in the economic category. As per reports, by 2036, immigrants will represent up to 30 percent of Canada’s population, compared with 20.7% in 2011.

Canada welcomed record number of immigrants despite the Pandemic

This feat becomes even more special when we look back at the chaos over the global pandemic all over the world. Right from travel restrictions to domestic lockdowns, Immigration all over the world upset by COVID-19. However, the employees of IRCC rose to the challenge and processed a record half a million applications in 2021.

To attain this, Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) added resources, employed new technology and brought more processes online. All these are now permanent enhancements to Canada’s immigration system. Speaking about this achievement of IRCC, the Canadian Immigration Minister, Sean Fraser, said,

“Last year, we set an ambitious goal. Today, we achieved it. This is a historic moment for our country, as we welcome the highest number of newcomers in one year in our history. I want to thank all the employees in my department, especially our Operations Sector, who made this possible. Canada is built on immigration, and we will continue to welcome the immigrants that Canada needs to succeed. I can’t wait to see the incredible contributions that our 401,000 new neighbours make in communities across the country.”

As per the government, Canada needs immigration to boost economy, cultivate the society and support the aging population. Today, in Canada, one in 3 businesses is owned by an immigrant, and 1 in 4 health care workers is a newcomer.

All the economists and Business, labour market experts agree that immigration creates jobs, expands the innovation and helps address labour shortages. New immigrants contribute to communities across the maple leaf country every day. Hence, the government will continue welcoming more newcomers as it continues to build the Canada of tomorrow.
