Canadian Immigration Levels
The Citizenship and Immigration (CIC) Minister of Canada, Chris Alexander, proclaimed that the country had welcomed 150,000 new Canadians in this year and over 1,300,000 new Canadians have entered the country till date, since 2006.

Over the years, Canada has benefited from highest immigration levels. The country is planning to entice around 265,000 permanent residents in 2014. A significant matter that has to be considered is -most of the permanent residents in Canada want to apply for Canadian citizenship. Around 86% of permanent residents became citizens of Canada, as per the 2011 statistics.

Economic migrants formed the largest chunk amongst all the new permanent residents admitted to the country. These people choose to come to Canada under various programs such as Skilled Worker, Skilled Trades, Canadian Experience Class, and the Live-In Caregiver programs. Family class immigrants have formed the second largest group of permanent residents admitted to Canada. Family class immigrants include spouses, dependent children, parents and grandparents of permanent residents. These two groups of immigrants represent 88% of permanent residents in 2013. Refugees, and applicants under compassionate and humanitarian grounds forms the rest part of the permanent residents.   

CIC has executed several reforms that have amended the immigration system, including both economic and family class immigrants. The reforms include bringing in application caps and setting up language requirements for economic programs and lessening the dependent children’s age to restrict the sponsorship of the children to Canada. Canadian Government is expected to make some more amendments as it is planning to modernize the immigration system to support its economy.
