Shift in Permanent Resident Numbers

Canadian immigration has seen a noticeable decline in early 2024, with February witnessing an 18.4 percent decrease in new permanent residents compared to January. This trend contributes to a 13.8 percent drop year-to-date, a significant shift from the robust increase observed in January 2024.

Immigration Levels and Government Targets

Despite the early downturn, the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) maintains a positive outlook, aiming to welcome 485,000 new permanent residents in 2024 as part of its three-year plan. This target anticipates a substantial increase over the 471,550 new residents in 2023 and is intended to support economic growth, family reunification, and humanitarian responses.

Provincial Impact and Future Projections

Ontario continues to attract the majority of new immigrants, hosting 43.3 percent of the total in the first two months of 2024. Economic programs like the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program and the Agri-Food Immigration Pilot play pivotal roles in this influx. If current trends persist, Canada could welcome approximately 520,260 new permanent residents by year-end, surpassing both previous records and current targets.
