Canada immigration official websites says that Canada aims to welcome 431,645 new permanent residents in 2022, 447,055 in 2023 and 451,000 in 2024.
Canada is targeting high levels of newcomers to support its economy and finances.
Canada has released its 2022-2024 Immigration Levels Plan. It outlines the number of immigrants Canada will welcome through its various federal, provincial and territorial programs. IRCC and the provinces and territories then adjust their operations according to the plan to ensure they can attract, settle, integrate and retain the target number of newcomers.
In 2022, the government plans to welcome 431,645 new permanent residents. The permanent resident target will increase to 447,055 by 2023, then another 451,000 in 2024. These increases have been supported by the modernization of Canada’s immigration system.
