1. Canada’s Immigration in 2022

In 2022, 56% of new immigrants will come through economic-class channels like Express Entry, the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), and the Temporary to Permanent Residence (TR2PR) stream, which was accessible in 2021. The PNP will be the primary admissions program for low-income immigrants, with Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) expecting 83,500 arrivals under the program in 2022.

IRCC has cut Express Entry admissions in half for this year, but it hopes to recover to normal levels by 2024 when it expects 111,500 Express Entry immigrants to arrive. The levels plan appears to indicate that IRCC is temporarily decreasing Express Entry admissions to make room for TR2PR admissions. Under the TR2PR stream, IRCC hopes to land    40,000 immigrants in 2022 and the final 32,000 immigrants in 2023.

2. Canada’s Immigration streams

Express Entry draws are continuing on a biweekly basis, and IRCC is processing Express Entry applications. Furthermore, the PNP is used by the majority of Canada’s provinces and territories, and PNP invites have been ongoing since the outbreak began. In 2022, the family class will account for 24% of admissions targets, with 80,000 people expected to enroll in the Spouses, Partners, and Children Program and 25,000 in the Parents and Grandparents Program (PGP). In comparison to its earlier strategy, the IRCC has upped its PGP admissions target by 1,500 slots. The remaining 20 percent of immigrants will arrive under refugee and humanitarian programs.

3. Canada’s current immigration target

Canada seeks a large number of newcomers to help the country’s economy and finances. Canada requires more immigration to support its population, labor force, and economic growth, as well as to have enough employees to pay the taxes required to support critical social services like health care and education. Reuniting families, giving humanitarian aid, and preserving Canada’s Francophone heritage are among the social immigration goals pursued by the country.

During the pandemic, immigration has undoubtedly become more economically important. Due to increased spending and reduced economic activity as a result of the epidemic, governments across Canada are running fiscal deficits. Furthermore, due to Canada’s aging population, huge economic changes under COVID, and fewer immigrants migrating from outside, firms across the country are experiencing labor shortages.
