Canada to commit $440 million for immigration increase over next 3 years

in immigration •  last year 


Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has set a target of 242,100 new admissions between 2018 and 2020 through the three economic immigration programs managed through the Express Entry system — the Federal Skilled Worker Class, the Federal Skilled Trades Class and the Canadian Experience Class.

Express Entry target admissions
Year - Target - Target Increase
2017 - 71,700*
2018 - 74,900 - 3,200 - (4%)
2019 - 81,400 - 6,700 - (9%)
2020 - 85,800 - 4,400 - (5%)

As to PNPs, which allow Canada’s provinces and territories to nominate a set number of immigrants each year for permanent residence, Hussen said these programs were a key driver for the multi-year level plan.

Express Entry candidates with a provincial nomination receive an additional 600 points toward their Comprehensive Ranking System score, leaving them well-positioned to receive an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence from IRCC.

I wish I could sit down with people who are opposed to immigration and educate them on why our Government is smart to have a fast-lane like this.

Historically, any country that is having economic or politic problems will see a mass exodus of the top people in their country - scientists, business owners, doctors, entrepreneurs, etc., and a smart foreign government wants to attract those people for immigration. A rising tide lifts all boats and all that.

Just look at Greece lol, they've had multiple exodus' over the decades and all their best people are living in Canada and the U.S.


Canada 🍁 is the Top worldwide Headhunter. Best in its class. Always recruit the best and have the best cloud immigration system to better than USA and Australia.

Canada is a top worldwide destination. Only one problem people is afraid of:


Canada’s Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, Ahmed Hussen, says his department’s action plan for addressing a controversial policy that refuses immigrants deemed likely to cause an “excessive demand” on the country’s health-care system will be released in April.
