Canada is one of the most multicultural countries and a member of the G-7 countries of the world. In recent years, the goal of its immigration plan has been steered to encouraging youthful, bilingual and high-skill immigrants that are capable of building human capital within its aging labor force. In order to attract the right type of migrants, it has on both federal and provincial level set in place different immigration programs that seek to target potential migrants who have work experience, higher education, and English or French language abilities.
Did you know that Canada plans to welcome over 1.3 million immigrants between 2021-2023?
On October 30, 2020 Canada tabled its 2021‒2023 Immigration Levels Plan, which sets out a path for responsible increases to immigration which aims to help the Canadian economy recover from COVID-19 and drive future growth. The pandemic was a major factor that highlighted the contribution of immigrants to the well-being of the Canadian communities and across all sectors of the economy such as health-care, information technology, agriculture, manufacturing and the supply chain industry. To compensate for the shortfall and ensure Canada has the workers it needs to fill crucial labour market gaps and remain competitive on the world stage, the 2021 to 2023 levels plan aims to welcome over 1.3 million immigrants.
