Canada has revealed its Immigration Levels Plan, outlining the projected number of new permanent residents to be admitted to the country over the next three years.

The immigration targets for Canada will remain consistent with current goals. In 2024, the aim is to admit 485,000 new immigrants. This number will be maintained for 2025 and 2026.

For the year 2024, approximately 281,135 immigrants (58% of the annual target) are expected to be admitted under the economic class. By 2026, this figure will increase to 301,250 immigrants (60% of the annual target).

In terms of family class admissions, the target for 2024 is set at 114,000 immigrants, constituting 24% of all admissions. This figure will see a slight rise to 118,000 immigrants by 2026, maintaining its 24% share of all admissions.

Humanitarian admissions will account for 19% of all admissions in 2024, totaling 89,865 immigrants. By 2026, this target will be adjusted to 80,832 immigrants, representing 16% of admissions.

Specific program targets include:

  • Express Entry: 110,700 permanent resident admissions in 2024, increasing to 117,500 immigrants in both 2025 and 2026.
  • Provincial Nominee Program (PNP): 110,000 immigrants in 2024, rising to 120,000 in 2025, and maintaining 120,000 in 2026.
  • Spousal, Partner, and Children sponsorship: Targeting 82,000 admissions in 2024, and slightly increasing to 84,000 in both 2025 and 2026.
  • Parents and Grandparents Program (PGP): Aiming for 32,000 immigrants in 2024, followed by 34,000 immigrants in each of 2025 and 2026.

Various immigration programs are available in Canada, including the Federal Skilled Worker (Express Entry), Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP), and Quebec-Selected Skilled Workers Program.

For those interested in benefiting from these plans, here are the recommended steps:

Step 1: Determine eligibility by answering a set of questions to ascertain if you meet the minimum requirements for the Express Entry programs.

Step 2: Check your Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score if you are eligible for one or more of the Express Entry programs.

Step 3: Gather necessary documents such as a passport or travel document, language test results, proof of Canadian education, proof of funds, and other required documents.

Step 4: Complete your Express Entry profile, providing relevant information about yourself. Note that being in the pool of candidates does not guarantee an invitation to apply for permanent residence.

Step 5: If invited to apply, you will have 60 days to submit your application for permanent residence.
