Canada Immigration Overview 2021

 Canadian Immigration Shatters All-Time Immigration Record

The IRCC has achieved this goal by reissuing temporary residents’ status living in Canada through this Coronavirus pandemic to a permanent resident state.

Canada has landed over 400,000 new immigrants for the year  2021. This number has been achieved for the second time since the foundation of the country in 1867.

This was confirmed by a news release from Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

IRCC also confirmed that the country had broken all of its records regarding the permanent residency landing during this year.

Just another time Canada surpassed the 400,000 figure of immigrants in 1913 but saw the impact of immigration on the country in the following years.

Prior to the pandemic, Canada set a goal of welcoming 341,000 new immigrants by 2020. Only 184,000 died last year because of the pandemic. However, immigration has doubled to support its post-pandemic economic recovery, with the announcement that the arrival of 401,000 new permanent residents would be achieved by 2021.

The IRCC has been able to meet this year's target of the Immigration Levels Plan through a technical overhaul. Landing can be made either to a temporary resident of Canada who sees a legal status change to permanent residence, or to those traveling to Canada and officially obtaining permanent resident status. Prior to the pandemic, most of the new immigrants were coming from overseas. This year, the IRCC intends to cross the border to reach its immigration goal. Those programs in Canada are less likely to be impacted by CoVID-related restrictions, which can hamper their country's ability to become permanent residents.

Before the pandemic, about 30 percent of new economic immigrants were already in the country when they obtained permanent residence, while about 70 percent were moving from elsewhere. In the year 2021, these statistics got reversed with some 70 percent landing in Canada and about 30 percent coming from overseas.

IRCC has made appointments in operations to transition temporary immigrants to permanent residents.

Several changes include holding Express Entry draws for Canadian Experience Class (CEC) candidates, as well as six channels in May to offer permanent residence routes to as many as 90,000 international students and workers living in Canada.

In very early days, Canada landed between 25,000 and 35,000 immigrants per month, with higher figures in the warmer months of spring and summer. Canada started with a slow start this year, before ramping into landings in June. From June 2021, Canada has been consistent by landing over 35,000 new permanent immigrants each month, and in recent months, this number has exceeded over 45,000 landings per month.

Achieving the 401,000 newcomers target is one of IRCC's top priorities by 2021. Now that this goal has been achieved, IRCC will be expanding its priorities after the release of the new mandate.

In today's press release, Immigration Minister Sean Fraser quoted: “Last year we established an intriguing and impressive goal. We have received it today. This is a historic moment for our country, as we welcome the greatest number of visitors to the world. I would like to thank all the workers in my area, especially our Operations Sector, for making this happen. Canada is built on immigration, and we can safely accept immigrants that Canada needs to succeed.

Under the Immigration Levels Plan 2021-2023, Canada Immigration Department is going to welcome 411,000 new immigrants in 2022 and 421,000 immigrants in 2023, Immigration Minister will do an announcement on the new level of immigration policy on February 10, 2022. Fraser has suggested a new plan that could also achieve higher targets. to 2022 and 2023.
