Immigration Levels Plan currently in effect
Canada has set a target of bringing in 431,645 new permanent residents overall through all immigration classes in 2022, according to the Immigration Levels Plan for 2022–2024. Up to 2024, this goal will gradually rise to 451,000 new permanent residents.
Canada has already accepted more than 300,000 new permanent residents this year. The majority of them are graduates of programs for people in lower socioeconomic status. 241,850 immigrants, or around 60% of all immigrants, are the target number for immigrants from the lower socioeconomic groups in 2022. The 2022 plan also seeks to bring in 105,000 immigrants from the family class and 8,250 from the humanitarian and refugee categories. These goals may all change with the publication of the new Immigration Levels Plan for 2023–2025, and they are no longer the basis for IRCC immigration targets.
What to anticipate?
The Immigration Levels Plan often includes fresh increases, and they are at their greatest levels ever right now. For instance, the overall objective for 2016 was 250,000 immigrants less than ten years ago. Even in the midst of the pandemic’s uncertainty, IRCC shattered the record for the greatest number of permanent residents ever in 2021, totaling over 405,000.
