Canada Immigration - Immigrants Made Up 61% Population Growth

Latest Statistics Canada report unveils how Canada immigration remains to be the primary driver for the growth of population, with a cumulative gain of 321,065 current immigrants in 2018.

Statistics Canada Report

By the commencement of 2019, the population of Canada attained 37,314,442, following a tremendous increase of current immigrants in the 4th quarter of 2018.

Throughout 2018, the population of Canada increased by above half a million, or 528,421. Global migration valued for 80.5% of the increase, representing a consolidated sum of 425,245 temporary residents and current immigrants to the nation.

Canadian Temporary residents are people who have been legally awarded the right to reside in Canada temporarily on either work, visit, student permit or any additional temporary status given by I.R.C.C.

The listed immigration numbers exceed natural growth numbers (subtracting deaths from births) for the year, which is reported at 103,176.

The report of Statistics Canada shows that the increase in population bump is surprising for the Q4 of a year, as this typically the growth of population drops down due to seasonal patterns.

Canadian Immigration Levels Plan

In 2015, the Canadian Government launched its Express Entry System. Through the Express Entry system, the Canadian government selects applicants who satisfy the country’s labor market requirements and calls them to appeal for Canadian PR. The system is intended to facilitate the applications processing for Canada’s 03 primary economic immigration programFederal Skilled Trades Class, Federal Skilled Worker Class,  and Canadian Experience Class while sustaining the processing timeline to lower than 06 months.

Canada announced a record-breaking 89,800 Invitations to Appeal (I.T.As) for Canadian PR to eligible applicants by the Canadian Express Entry in the year 2018. In the Q4 of 2018, I.R.C.C released its 03-year plan for immigration levels 2019 to 2021.

Economic immigration is a primary part of that plan, which has a goal for admissions to 330,800 current permanent residents for the current year. This number increases yearly and is fixed at 350,000 by the year 2021 — approximately 1% of the population of Canada.

By growing Canadian immigration rate, the nation intends to bring and hold abroad talent to support labor market deficits over the country.

Another essential point of the 03-year immigration levels plan is Provincial Nominee Program of Canada, which has a goal that is fixed to increase from 61,000 current admissions in the year 2019 to 71,300 new immigrants in the year 2021.
