Reasons for the Immigration Surge in Canada

The TR2PR or temporary-to-permanent resident program, conducted once, accepted applications last year, is still witnessing arrivals. This program has increased the number of immigrants being issued Canada PR under the economic programs.

The latest immigration levels plan of Ottawa aims to welcome 32,000 new immigrants under the pathway in 2022.

The refugees from Ukraine and Afghanistan arriving in Canada, too, contributed to the increased number of immigrants.

According to the immigration levels plan announced this year, Canada aims to welcome 447,055 new immigrants coming to Canada in 2023 and 451,000 immigrants in 2024.

The growing numbers of people who migrate to Canada are claimed by the Canadian government as an essential factor to resolve shortages in the labor force and rebuild the economy of Canada. It would resolve the lack of skilled workers in the sector of agriculture, fisheries, business management, and the tech sector.
