Does Canada want more immigrants for the next year?

Last month, Canada released a Supplementary Information document about the expected 2020-2022 Immigration Levels. According to the document, Canada plans to welcome 341,000 new permanent residents in 2020, 351,000 in 2021, and 361,000 in 2022. The distribution per category will obey the following table:

Will coronavirus crisis affect Canada immigration numbers?

It’s unclear if the coronavirus crisis will stop Canada from meeting the expected immigration numbers for 2020. However, the demand for newcomers – especially in the economic class – remains high. Therefore, it’s reasonable to assume that the Canadian government may want to compensate the numbers in 2021 if it doesn’t achieve the target numbers for 2020.

Most importantly, it’s safe to say Canada’s economy depends on immigrants. Immigrants are necessary to strengthen the labor market and increase the country’s economically active population. Also, after the coronavirus pandemic is over, Canada will need immigrants to help to recover its economy.

Why now is the right time to apply for Canada immigration?

The coronavirus pandemic may have an impact on processing times. However, you still can and, in fact, should start your application process from abroad now and arrive in Canada after the crisis is solved.

The current processing times on the government website may not be accurate. But, just to give an idea, in non-crisis time, the immigration procedure for the Express Entry Program takes approximately 10 to 14 months once the government selects your file. While for the Skilled Worker Program of Quebec immigration procedure takes approximately 18 to 24 months once the government selects your file.

Like Express Entry and Quebec Skilled Worker, the processing time for most immigration programs will cover the expected time for the corona crisis to be solved.
