“Canada needs more people”said Sean Fraser during a press conference.

More than 900,000 jobs are currently to be filled in many sectors of the country. Unemployment has also hit historic lows in recent months, standing at 5.2% in September.

In order to overcome this, Ottawa therefore plans to grant permanent residence to 465,000 people in 2023 (i.e. 18,000 more than previously), 485,000 in 2024 (i.e. 34,000 more) and 500,000 in 2025.

Of the “glaring labor shortages”

In particular, the federal government intends to improve its selection programs to best meet “to glaring labor shortages” in sectors “such as healthcare, skilled jobs, manufacturing and STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).

By 2025, the goal is for more than 60% of total admissions to be economic migrants, Fraser said. Canada also aims to reunite families with some members abroad more quickly, but to welcome fewer refugees.

In 2021, the country accepted more than 405,000 immigrantsthat is “the largest number we have ever welcomed in a single year”the Immigration Department said in a statement.

One in four Canadians was born abroad

“Right now, Canada’s population is growing almost twice as fast as any other G7 economy”added Minister Sean Fraser.

Among the group of seven major powers, Canada, with a population of nearly 39 million, has the highest proportion of immigrants with nearly one in four Canadians born abroad.

However, the country is also on the cusp of a “record wave” retirements, Statistics Canada warned in the spring.
