Canada has announced the highest immigration targets this year. They plan to invite 401000 foreigners to Canada this year. They are mainly focussing on foreigners who are already present in Canada as temporary workers or International students etc.
Canada’s economy depends on a large scale on immigration. Canada wants more skilled foreigners to move to Canada and contribute to the economic development of the country. The high dependency on immigration is because Canada has issues like an ageing population and a low fertility rate.
Many are approaching their retirement age and these gaps must be filled at the earliest. Therefore Canada wants to attract more skilled foreigners to Canada.
Canada is working aggressively to achieve its target of welcoming 401000 immigrants this year. They are hopeful that immigration will improve in the summer months.
