Canada and the Trudeau government’s vision for immigration
It’s no surprise COVID-19 has fundamentally changed the world in many ways, for better and worse. In Canada, COVID-19 showed the government and the public just how important immigrants are to the country’s social and economic well-being.
For example, in Quebec, as the number of deaths in senior nursing homes (CHSLD – centre d’hébergement et de soins de longue durée) soared in the early days, it was the asylum seekers and immigrants who risked their lives by braving the virus and caring for the elderly.
In order to make up for this loss and ensure there are no significant gaps in the labor market, an increased number of immigrants will be welcomed into the country over the next couple of years, divided as follows:
- 2021: 401,000 (previous plan targeted 351,000 in 2021)
- 2022: 411,000 (previous plan targeted 361,000 in 2022)
- 2023: 421,000 (no previous target was established for 2023)
With two more months still to go, it’s too soon to know for certain whether Canada will meet its immigration target for 2021. However, if the large and frequent draws carried out by the federal and provincial government are any indication, Canada is likely very close to its.
If somehow the target is not reached due to the pandemic slowing things down, it is almost certain Trudeau’s government will have a bigger target for 2022 and hit the ground running in the new year.
Other Highlights from 2021-2023 Immigration Levels Plan:
- 60% of the new admissions will be chosen from the Economic Class, as the plan’s focus is on the country’s immediate and long-term economic growth.
- Community driven immigration approach in order to address Canada’s labour and demographic needs.
- Promote the growth of francophone communities throughout Canada and outside of Quebec. Individuals who speak French will be awarded additional points under the Express Entry system.
- Admit 500 refugees over a period of two years through the Economic Mobility Pathways Project.
- Creating a pathway for eligible asylum claimants who provided care to patients on the front lines during the pandemic between March 13 and August 14 2020
There is a saying that immigrants are the backbone of the economy and the pandemic was proof of that. According to a Statics Canada survey, in 2016, one third of the people employed as nurses, patient service associates and orderlies, were immigrants.
The Lancet study predicts that Canada will hit its peak population by 2078 and fall slightly by the turn of the century. In order to offset this anticipated decline and ensure the country’s economy stays strong and vibrant for the rest of the century, Canada is pursuing a very aggressive immigration plan.
Should Canada reach its target goals and continue to increase the number of newcomers it welcomes into the country? Canada will have the world’s highest net migration rate. Meaning, over the next decade, Canada could have the world’s 10th largest economy and add an estimated 5 million workers to the labour market!
The time to immigrate to Canada is now!
If you’re thinking of immigrating to Canada, know that the time for thinking is over. Now is the time to act! Canada is planning to accept a massive number of immigrants this year, but imminent elections could mean the program might soon suffer significant changes.
Increasing the Immigration Target
Trudeau remaining Prime Minister for the next four years. What does this mean? Immigration has been and continues to be a top priority for the Trudeau administration as the Prime Minister recognizes the important role immigrants play in the country’s economy and society. His government wants to welcome newcomers to fill the ever-increasing labor shortages in in-demand jobs, and you can be one of them..
Since Trudeau will continue leading the country, there is no doubt that immigration will continue to be prioritized, and Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) will do everything they can to ensure immigration targets for this year and the following two years are being met.
Enough Covid Vaccines for Everyone
Every country in the world is in a race to secure enough Covid vaccines. Canada has already won this race.
The Canadian government closed deals with several manufacturers, ensuring that it will receive enough vaccine doses for its entire population. In fact, in the next few months, Canada will have enough doses to vaccinate its entire population four times over. The country is already starting to see its vaccination program’s benefits, with daily cases dropping by 50% in January.
Canada Is Accepting the Highest Number of Immigrants in History
Prime minister Justin Trudeau announced in January that his country will welcome a record number of immigrants in 2021, and this number will increase in the next two years, in case his party will still be governing.
Canada will be accepting 401.000 immigrants in 2021. This means that you will have a higher than ever chance to be accepted. Don’t let this opportunity go to waste and apply now!
Free Access to One of the Best Healthcare Systems in the World
Several studies have placed the Canadian healthcare system amongst the top 10% in the world, or top 20 countries.
All Canadian residents, including immigrants, have free access to one of the world’s best public health care systems.
This means, if you move to Canada right now you will have access to some of the best specialists in the world, using the best medical equipment available, without having to pay a single dollar. The Canadian government funds the medical system with the taxes collected from companies and employees.
The Canadian Economy Is Booming – More Jobs for Immigrants
The North American country currently has a deficit in its workforce, and experts claim that 800.000 jobs will be filled this year, many by immigrants.
This massive workforce deficit means that, as an immigrant, you should easily find a job. After all, you are admitted to the country for just this reason. Not only that but your salary will likely be higher than usual.
Given the massive deficit, employers are fighting amongst each other for workers and are ready to outbid their competitors to fill the vacant positions as soon as possible.
Forget The American Dream. It’s Time To Live The Canadian Dream
If you’re looking for a country with lots of opportunities, where you can turn your dreams into reality, Canada is the right place for you. Experts claim that Canada’s economy will be booming in 2021.
Canada now is the new land of opportunity! This doesn’t mean just lots of employment opportunities, but the chance to become a successful entrepreneur yourself. Not many countries offer this opportunity right now, given the impact the Covid pandemic has had on many economies worldwide.
Hot tips for fast immigration
For 2021, Canada has one goal in mind: issue as many invitations as possible to reach the desired 401,000 newcomers by the end of the year. Because of the pandemic, Canada did not meet its immigration targets for 2020, so there is a greater urgency this year to fill that gap.
If you’re thinking of coming to Canada, this is your year! Want to give yourself and your family a better life? We strongly urge you to look into some of the more popular immigration programs and throw your hat in the ring immediately.
If we look at the immigration trends of the last six months, it is clear the quickest and most efficient way of coming into Canada right now is through Express Entry managed programs and Provincial Nominee Programs.
While Express Entry and PNP are fantastic options for coming to Canada, there is a slight catch. Because Express Entry and PNP are such common programs, they are also very popular and you may have to wait more than six months to get your shot.
What you don’t know, and what we’re revealing to you today is that there are dozens of alternative programs that can get you into Canada even faster than Express Entry or PNP!
Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could come to Canada within a few short months and find a job immediately in a field suited to your specific skills? How great would it be to apply in a stream where the competition is almost zero? Sounds too good to be true? It’s not!
You should keep in mind that the largest draws are held in bigger cities like Toronto or Vancouver. It is a popular choice among immigrants to settle in these cities, where there is a shortage of skilled immigrants.
At CICWeekly, we believe in always being transparent and sharing all the information we have from the get go. With the help of some RCIC agents we want to share some hot tips about the huge range of opportunities that are available for the picking, if you know where to go!
Read on to find out what these tips are and fast track your immigration process.
