AN OVERVIEW OF THE CANADIAN IMMIGRATION TARGETS 2020
Looking back at the federal immigration process throughout 2019, one can conveniently say that the year expressed Canada’s receptive impression to immigrants and immigration as a whole and things do not seem to be slowing down anytime soon. The 2020 immigration agenda is already creating a lasting buzz, as the government is still bent on implementing its target to welcome more than one million immigrants over the three years.
2019 remained a spontaneous year for the Express Entry immigration targets 2019. With a couple of surprising results that constantly kept speculators at the edge of their seats all year round. The last draw saw the issuance of about 3,200 Invitations to Apply (ITA) to extremely eligible candidates. Which in turn, brings the annual total number of ITAs issued in 2019 to 85,300 which gravely exceeds the federal immigration targets for the year.
This was the second-highest invitation total since the Express Entry System was introduced in 2015. This platform is in charge of the Federal Skilled Worker Class, and Canadian Experience Class — and the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).
The IRCC held a total of 26 draws from the Express Entry pool in 2019 which ranged in size from 3,200 to 3,900 ITAs.
CANADIAN IMMIGRATION TARGETS 2020
The target for immigration through the three Federal High-Skilled programs is slated to rise to 85,800 in 2020 and 88,800 in 2021. The target for Canada’s PNP is also set to rise to 67,800 in 2020 and 71,300 in 2021. The re-election of Justin Trudeau-led Liberal Party in Canada’s federal election last October means these admissions targets will rise again in 2020.
The Liberals introduced steadily rising immigration targets in 2017 that will see total admissions of new permanent residents to Canada reach 350,000 in 2021. The mandate letter issued to Canada’s new immigration minister, Marco Mendicino, in November calls for “modest and responsible” increases to Canada’s immigration levels over the coming years.
