The Statement was a comprehensive one with plans for various sectors of the Canadian economy, to which Canada immigration is a big contributor.

The Government of Canada enthusiastically reiterated the role of immigration in the economic development of the country. To realize the ambitious Immigration Levels Plan 2023-2025, the government has committed an investment of CAD1.6 million over the next six years. This amount will be used to ensure the smooth processing of immigration applications and settlement of new immigrants arriving in Canada.

Thus, they can fill the vacant jobs in Canada that are desperate for more skilled foreign workers and help the economy stabilize and grow.
