With higher immigration targets, and more efficient processes in place, the Canadian immigration landscape for 2022 looks promising. As we approach the end of 2021, what changes can we expect in Canadian immigration programs and draws in 2022?
Canada plans to welcome a record-breaking 411,000 new permanent residents in 2022, per the 2021-2023 Immigration Levels Plan.
This is a higher level than Canada has ever targeted before. Canada has not mentioned reducing this target during the pandemic. In fact, the new immigration minister, Sean Fraser, mentioned potentially increasing these levels even further to meet labour market demand.
