Canada is focusing on immigration more than ever, by opening its doors to students, professionals, families and refugees. The Federal Express Entry Program has issued a record number of ITAs this year for Canada’s main economic immigration streams – Federal Skilled Workers Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program and Canadian Experience Class.
Right now Canada aims to invite a million new PR candidates from 2019 to 2021 under Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC)’s ambitious plan. The good news is that increasing intake might bring down CRS cut-off score in Express Entry draws.
Canada’s provinces are eagerly welcoming applications across a wide range of Provincial Nominee Program. There is good news for families as well. They are welcoming 270,500 spouses, common-law partners, dependent children, parents and grandparents of permanent residents under Family Class Programs. There is also a move to settle up to 147, 850 refugees and up to 13,750 for humanitarian reasons.
Canada is also keen on supporting Canadian employers and businesses by ensuring they have the skilled labour needed to encourage innovation and strengthen the economy. Canada wishes to attract talent from around the world to have a competitive edge over other countries.
Canada is also the 3rd preferred nation for overseas studies, trailing behind the UK and the US by a few points. But it continues to attract students from specific regions more than the UK and the US.
