Canadian government is planning to increase its annual immigration target to 350,000 by 2021. The Canadian immigration minister Ahmed Hussen has confirmed this during a question answer session in the parliament. If it is materialized the government will be accepting about 40,000 more people compared to what it is accepting in 2018. This will be gigantic figure, i.e. nearly one percent of the existing Canadian population.
Massive Rise in Annual Immigration target by 2021
The government is going to increase the annual immigration target gradually year on year from what it is this year, i.e. 310,000. Moreover, the massive immigration influx in 2021 has been announced as part of updated Multiyear Immigration Plan of Canada.
The major chunk among these annual immigrants will be invited under the economic immigration program of Canada. The economic immigration programs, i.e. Express Entry System has been designed by the government to meet the skill shortage across various provinces and territories of the maple leaf country.
As per the minster, Canada is in severe need of immigrants to meet the shortage of skilled workers across the country. While answering a question he said, "In certain regions the hunger for workers is huge. This new plan is making us very competitive in the global market. It enables us to continue to be competitive, it enables us to continue to present Canada as a welcoming country and to position us to continue to be (a leader) in skills attraction."
Immigration Increase welcomed by the experts
The increase that the government has planned in next few years is significant, however, a group of immigration advocates and other economic programs wanted larger than this target. In fact, government's economic advisory council stressed upon raising immigration level to 450,000, in its report submitted in the year 2016.
Hence, the government is in process to gradually achieve the required figure, while making certain that all new immigrants get proper settlement and integrated services without any fuss. As per Mr. Hussen, we cannot just go to 450,000 mark at once, as it will exert pressure on resources as well as on the government to raise the funding for settlement services drastically. The target needs to be achieved gradually, so that the community and available resources can absorb them well.
