Canada’s Immigration Levels Plan For 2023-2025
In today’s blog, we bring you the latest updates on Canada’s Immigration Levels Plan for 2023 – 2025.
Every year IRCC issues an Immigration Levels Plan, which acts as a guideline for each year’s permitted number of immigrants to Canada. This guideline includes the immigrant breakdown of the next 3 years for family class, economic class, and humanitarian class programs.
This year it seems like IRCC is confident in setting more record-breaking targets. The 2022 target is almost 432,000 new permanent residents and more than 451,000 by 2024. Immigration Minister Sean Fraser stated that he could predict higher targets of up to 500,000 new permanent residents in the future. However, he did not define when that would occur. It is doubtful that the target would drop when looking at Canada’s current labour shortage and the high number of job vacancies.
As per the Immigration Refugees Protection Act (IRPA), IRCC has a deadline of November 1 to announce the new plan. However, as the Parliament is sitting for four consecutive weeks following the Canadian Thanksgiving, the plan could arrive a few days earlier. IRPA is the primary piece of legislation that regulates Canadian immigration.
IRCC functions with other governmental departments and stakeholders to develop an Immigration Levels Plan that is poised in how permanent resident’ spots are dispersed among each immigration class and, from there, further categorized into how many spots per program.
