Canada Targeting to Welcome Almost 500,000 Immigrants Each Year By 2025

The Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship has released Canada’s 2023-2025 Immigration Levels Plan.

After welcoming the highest number of immigrants last year, the Canadian Government is targeting to welcome 465,000 permanent residents in 2023, 485,000 in 2024, and 500,000 in 2025.

Currently Canada is undergoing a labour market shortage following the pandemic of COVID-19. The government believes that newcomers to Canada will be an essential factor in helping businesses find employees and workers throughout the country.
