Canada Releases Immigration Levels Plan 2022-2024 – Canada all set to welcome 432,000 immigrants in 2022 and 1.3 million in 3 years

On February 14, 2022, Canada released its immigration levels plan 2022 – 2024. Canada intends to welcome 432,000 immigrants in the year 2022.

The 3-year projections as per the immigration levels plan is as follows:

  • 2022 – 432,000
  • 2023 – 447,055
  • 2024 – 451,000

“Immigration has helped shape Canada into the country it is today. From farming and fishing to manufacturing, healthcare and the transportation sector, Canada relies on immigrants. We are focused on economic recovery, and immigration is the key to getting there. Setting bold new immigration targets, as outlined in the 2022-2024 Levels Plan, will further help bring the immeasurable contribution of immigrants to our communities and across all sectors of the economy.”

– The Honourable Sean Fraser, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship

Canada also provides the classification of immigrants it intends to welcome in the coming years:

Humanitarian and Other8,25010,5007,750

Highlights of the plan include:

  • overall admissions amounting to 1.14% of the Canadian population by 2024.
  • a long-term focus on economic growth, with nearly 60% of admissions in the Economic Class.
  • help for vulnerable populations, like the special measures for granting permanent residence to refugee claimants working in health care during the pandemic.
  • support for global crises by providing a safe haven through humanitarian immigration to those facing persecution.
  • talent retention of those already in Canada by granting permanent status to temporary residents accepted through the time-limited pathways for essential workers launched in spring 2021.

The levels plan is a projection of how many permanent residents will be admitted to Canada, and it sets targets and ranges for overall admissions immigration categories. Under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, the Minister must table the Levels Plan in Parliament each year.
