IRCC confirmed in a press release that this is the largest number of immigrants even to be landed in a single calendar year.
“Last year, we set an ambitious goal. Today, we achieved it. This is a historic moment for our country, as we welcome the highest number of newcomers in one year in our history. I want to thank all the employees in my department, especially our Operations Sector, who made this possible. Canada is built on immigration, and we will continue to welcome the immigrants that Canada needs to succeed. I can’t wait to see the incredible contributions that our 401,000 new neighbours make in communities across the country.”
– The Honourable Sean Fraser, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship
Canada is looking forward to achieving its plan to welcome 411,000 new immigrants in 2022 and 421,000 immigrants in 2023. When the new Immigration Level Plans are announced in 2022, it is expected that these numbers will go up significantly. Until then stay tuned.
