Canada Immigration – Canada Permanent Resident (PR) Program
Canada is well known for its pro-immigration stance, welcoming hundreds of thousands of newcomers each year through a variety of programs. The country’s economic immigration system has undergone a welcome change since 2015 ever since the Express Entry system was launched.
The Government of Canada has unveiled its new multi-year immigration levels plan, which is set to welcome 1.3 million new permanent residents across various immigration categories by the end of 2021. The plan revises its previous targets for the years 2019 and 2020 and provides details on admissions targets for Canadian permanent resident status in the economic, family class, refugee and humanitarian immigration categories.
The overall immigration targets for 2019 and 2020 have been increased by 800 and 1,000, respectively. The plan also establishes an overall target of 350,000 new permanent residents in 2021, which the Government of Canada equates to nearly 1 per cent population growth.
A popular path for migrating to Canada and an element that makes Canada’s immigration system even more attractive and available to potential new Canadians is the Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs). Canada’s constitution gives authority to both the Federal government and Canada’s ten provinces to create immigration policy. Consequently, each of these provinces, as well as two of Canada’s three territories, has signed agreements with the Federal government to allow each province to design economic immigration programs which reflect each province’s individual attributes, aspirations, and needs.
So this effectively means that immigrant aspirants are able to come to Canada not just through only one Federal program, but twelve streams (each of the ten provinces plus two of the territories) to qualify as immigrants (permanent residents on pathway to citizenship) to Canada. Moreover, a Provincial Nomination Program (PNP) can significantly expedite the processing of a Federal immigration application.
Canada’s provinces look for qualified immigrants, particularly given the low rate of population among Canadians. Provinces that are smaller in size and population are eager to open their doors to obtain new immigrants.
Along with its fellow Atlantic Provinces (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island) Newfoundland is a participant in the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (AIPP), yet another initiative, this one employer-driven, to encourage immigration.
Businesses across Canada are struggling to stay afloat because they can’t find enough employees. Quebec, for instance, has been experiencing record employment of late, which means the pool of available labour is running dry.
Talk to any employer in Atlantic Canada and rural and remote regions around Canada and they’ll tell you the real crisis is Canada’s labour shortage. And the only reason this shortage isn’t worse is thanks to immigration, which is now responsible for about 90 per cent of Canada’s labour market growth.
