In an effort to curb a chronic labour shortage by welcoming more newcomers, the Canadian government announced plans to welcome an unprecedented 1.45 million newcomers over the next three years.
The federal government will target 465,000 new immigrants in 2023, 485,000 in 2024 and 500,000 in 2025 under its new Immigration Levels Plan, said Immigration Minister Sean Fraser.
According to the previous Immigration Levels Plan released in February, Canada is already on track to meet the 431,645 target for 2022.
Fraser announced that 301,250 new immigrants would be admitted into the Economic Class alone, continuing Canada’s commitment to helping businesses that suffer from chronic labour shortages.
According to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, immigration accounts for almost 100 percent of Canada’s labour force growth and 100 percent of its population growth by 2032.
Newcomers to the Economic Class will mainly come from the Provincial Nominee Program and Federal High Skilled categories.
In 2023, there will be 105,000 PNP newcomers, 110,000 in 2024, and 117,500 in 2025.
A total of 82,880, 109,020, and 114,000 immigrants will come to Canada through the Federal High Skilled stream, mainly managed by Express Entry, in 2023, 2024, and 2025, respectively.
The stream includes newcomers through the Federal Skilled Worker, Federal Skilled Trades and Canadian Experience Class programs.
The Atlantic Immigration Program will also grow to 14,500 newcomers by 2025, and other economic pilots to 14,750.
Canada’s Family Class category will grow to 106,500 in 2023, then 114,000 in 2024 and 118,000 by 2025.
Approximately 82,000 newcomers are expected from family sponsorships by 2025, primarily spouses, partners, and children. However, there will also be room for a record number of parents and grandparents, at 36,000 by 2025.
It is expected that Canada will continue to welcome large numbers of refugees in the future, including 76,305 in 2023, 76,115 in 2024, and 72,750 in 2025.
We have enrolled ourselves with Winny for Canada Immigration(was referred by a friend) and we are very happy with the service provided by them. We are yet to complete the entire service with them but until now the staff has proven to be knowledgeable, patient, cooperative and helpful. We hope to complete our further immigration procedure in the same way.
Good luck and keep going!
A great place for the overseas solutions, had a conversation with Seema Bhavsar for my Canada visa process, and she guided with all the process and even she explained with very easy methods, earlier i was not sure what to do but after Seema guidance i have started the process. A special thanks to Seema and her team Winny Immigration.
Finding an immigration consultant is no piece of cake but Winny is surely cherry on that cake!! I visited Winny’s Ahmedabad office and it proved to be an one stop solution for everything. Ms. Monika Jha is an amazing counsellor. She cleared all our doubts, gave excellent guidance and regularly checked upon us during the process. The case officers, teaching faculty, counsellors and the admin team at Winny are a 10/10 recommend for immigration.
I am from Ahmedabad and planning to immigrate canada. After inquiry in so many consultancy i found Winny has good transparency. in first inquiry they cleared all my doubt and tell me what is process and how much it take times. Most important is that all process is online. it save time for working professional.
One of the best consulting firms I’ve come across is very transparent and has high-skilled employees. From the last two years, I’ve been planning to go through the Canadian PR process and have visited many consultancy firms for information. Each one gave me different information, but one of my friends suggested Winny Immigration because Winny is an authorized consultant through the Canadian Government. I visited Winny and decided to start my journey with Winny Immigration. The experience and support I received from them was great.
