Canadian Immigration Plan (2023-2025)

About Canadian Immigration Plan

Immigration has long been used to support economic and demographic growth, as well as cultural diversity, in Canada. Millions of immigrants choose to settle in Canada and embark on a new chapter in their life. Regardless of how they arrived in Canada, everyone contributes meaningfully to the Canadian economy and the growth of various industries. Immigration has aided in the development of the country.

Thus, considering immigration an important aspect of Canadian growth, the Honorable Sean Fraser, Minister of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship, published a revised Canada’s Immigration Levels Plan for 2023–2025 on November 1, 2022. The plan was prepared by taking into account important labour market shortages that are causing concern for Canadian businesses and workers.

Count of Invitations for 2023 - 2025

According to the Immigration and Canada’s Economic Recovery report (by IRCC), more than 405,000 new permanent residents were welcomed to Canada in 2021, and now with the new Immigration Levels Plan for 2023–2025, the Canadian government established a target to call:

  • In year 2023: 465,000 permanent residents (earlier 447,055 Permanent Residents)
  • In year 2024: 485,000 permanent residents (earlier 451,000 Permanent Residents), and
  • In year 2025: 500,000 permanent residents

The plan supports businesses in recruiting employees and attract the skills required in important areas like as health care, skilled trades, manufacturing, and technology to address the social and economic challenges that Canada will confront in the next decades.

Additionally, considering the value of skilled immigrants to the Canadian economy, culture, and population growth, the Canada aimed to call more than 60% of immigrants through economic immigration programs by 2025.
