What does Immigration Levels Plan contain?
Basically, Immigration Levels Plan shows an increase in the target of immigrants which is the highest ever because the total target was only 250,000 immigrants in 2016 which increased to 405,000 immigrants in 2021, breaking the record for permanent residents in Canada.
Furthermore, the target for 2023 is about 447,055 immigrants which may increase in 2024 to 451,000 immigrants.
Moreover, IRCC consults with governmental departments and stakeholders to form Immigration Levels Plan and balances the allocation of different classes in each program.
Immigration Minister Fraser declared that he would analyze the needs in the labour market as some provincial ministers are saying that the current plan doesn’t have enough spots for the PNP programs.
Moreover, the minister didn’t specify the date but he said that the target may increase to 500,000 new PRs in Canada.
According to the (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) IRCC’s data on August 31, the permanent residency applications under process are 513, 923. Besides, IRCC mentions that it has been working to speed up the application processing time and client services through the digital process and by hiring 1000+ employees.
