The Canadian Government has revealed its current plan of multi-year immigration levels, which is fixed to welcome 1.3 million new permanent residents over various categories of immigration by the end of 2021.
The plan updates its early targets for the years 2019 and 2020 and presents admissions targets details for Canada permanent resident status in the family class, economic, refugee and humanitarian categories of immigration.
The overall immigration objectives for 2019 and 2020 have been grown by 800 and 1,000, respectively. This plan also sets an overall goal of 350,000 new permanent residents in the year 2021, which the Canadian Government equates to approximately 1 percent growth of population.
