Canada is all set to welcome 401,000 immigrants in 2021. So, far it has been on the right track to achieve this target. As per the reports from the IRCC 23,375 foreigners have received PR visas in February 2021. In January IRCC Canada welcomed 25000 immigrants.
So, far in 2021, Canada has welcomed 48000 immigrants in the first 2 months. Last year this figure was 50,600. There are hopes that in the coming months Canada will welcome more immigrants as compared to 2020.
Canada’s immigration minister had announced an immigration plan in October 2020. According to this plan Canada aims to welcome 401000 immigrants in 2021 which would be equivalent to the record Canada set way back in 1913.
Before the pandemic, many people were migrating to Canada. But then due to the pandemic travel restrictions were imposed in March 2020. In April 2020 Canada welcomes just 4000 newcomers. In the following months, the immigration figures improved a bit but they were nowhere close to the large number of immigrants who used to migrate to Canada before the pandemic.
The main aim of Canada this year is to offer PR status to those foreigners who are already living in Canada. They are focusing on pathways like International students, temporary foreign workers, etc.
In the February express entry draw, 27000 candidates were sent an invitation to apply for the PR visa of Canada. The Canadian officials are also focusing on those candidates abroad who are exempt from COVID 19 travel restrictions. This means that sponsored family members of Canadian citizens and permanent residents are allowed to travel right away. As for others who have got the PR status we need to wait and watch when they will be allowed to move to Canada.
In the summer months, immigration to Canada is much better as compared to the winter months. We can expect that in the summer months more number of people will travel to Canada.
