Canada will aim to welcome 401,000 immigrants in 2021, another 411,000 in 2022, and 421,000 in 2023.

Good news for all potential immigrants!

Over the coming three years, Canada will aim to welcome new permanent residents as per the following numbers:

2021: 401,000 immigrants
2022: 411,000 immigrants
2023: 421,000 immigrants
The only time Canada welcomed over 400,000 immigrants in a year was in 1913, when it admitted 401,000 newcomers. It has never come close to this figure again.

This new plan aims to welcome about 60% of new immigrants under the economic class programs (including Express Entry and Provincial Nomination Programs) Canada will aim to admit new immigrants under the categories of economic, family, refugee and humanitarian/compassionate grounds.

Canada is maintaining a consistently high level of immigration to balance the negative economic impact of its aging population and the low birth rates.
