Asian countries on top as providers of immigrants in Canada

Where migrants come to Canada from

Canada immigration is showing a phenomenal upward curve as Canada’s immigration policies have facilitated a strong performance in this area.

The proof of Canada’s ambitious approach to immigration can be seen in the fact that days before lockdown, it announced its plan to welcome more than 1 million permanent residents in the 2020 – 2022 period.

Canada has processed immigration applications as best as it can all these months when it had to restrict border crossings owing to COVID-19.

Until the end of April, Canada welcomed 74,000 new permanent residents.

Many countries contributed to the influx of immigrants who found it best to migrate to Canada. The top 10 countries who sent migrants to Canada are:

  • India
  • China
  • Philippines
  • USA
  • Nigeria
  • Pakistan
  • Syria
  • France
  • Iran
  • Brazil

As is understandable from the list, India has been the largest source of new permanent residents in Canada. Proficiency in English is one of the important contributory factors for this dominance.

Immigrants from India constituted 24% of all new permanent residents in Canada. China comes next with 10%. The Philippines have contributed 7% to this category in 2020.

It is recommended that even during this COVID-19 crisis period, candidates should submit their immigration application and Express Entry profiles. It’s very likely that they will receive an invitation to apply or permanent residence and be able to move to Canada sooner.

With IRCC to help immigrants in all possible ways, more people will be in a position to achieve their immigration goals.
