Immigration Minister Marco Mendicino declared that Canada would increase its immigration target to 1.2 million over the next three years. This year, Canada plans to accept four hundred and one thousand newcomers.
The increase in immigration targets is a response to the low number of immigrants admitted previously. Immigration tops the priority list in Canada, as it helps address the country’s demographic challenges, which include an aged labor force and a poor birth rate.
With no end in sight to the travel restrictions that are obstructing immigration, the government is prioritizing immigrants who currently live in Canada to meet its immigration target. Canada is currently on track to meet its target.
The Canadian government has employed the use of immigration candidates to apply for permanent residence through the express entry program. Express Entry is not an immigration program, rather it is an electronic system that manages immigration applications. People who want to migrate to Canada must submit their profile to the system, and get a score by the comprehensive ranking system, and then they may be invited to apply for permanent residence based on their eligibility.
