Data obtained from the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) revealed that some 37,780 people obtained Permanent Residency status in Canada in the month of August, 2021.
This number is symptomatic of a recent trend in higher migration levels compared to the pandemic ravaged 2020. Canada landed 40,000 new permanent residents in July and around 36,000 in June. August represents the third month in a row with comparatively higher levels.
The North American country’s migration targets for 2021 is set for 401,000 new immigrants and is in place till 2023. The migration levels for 2021 up until June were much lower than the requisite thresholds to meet the annual target.
The IRCC has initiated viable measures to facilitate the fruition of the migration goals. One of this was the largest Express Entry draw in the country’s history which took place in February 13, 2021. Over 27,000 candidates were invited for the draw, out which 90 percent were domiciled in Canada during the pandemic. This was nearly six times the applicant size of the previous record.
