On November 1, 2023, Canada introduced it’s Immigration Levels Plan for 2024-2026. This strategic plan underscores the pivotal role of immigration in fueling the nation’s economy, addressing labour shortages, and supporting key sectors.
With a commitment to balancing economic growth with societal needs, the plan maintains a target of 485,000 permanent residents for 2024, reaching 500,000 by 2025. Post-2026, the levels will stabilize at 500,000, allowing for seamless integration. The government emphasizes collaboration with provinces, territories, and stakeholders to ensure sustainable immigration-driven population growth.
Key features include a focus on economic class admissions, humanitarian efforts, and ambitious targets for Francophone immigration to bolster communities outside Quebec.
