The COVID-19 pandemic-related laws and restrictions have been lifted, and Canada has made plans to welcome a significant number of immigrants, students, and temporary foreign workers from many nations.
Due of the COVID-19 pandemic, Canada has imposed limitations on newcomers, and they are not permitted to enter the country. People with approved permanent residency and study permits prior to the pandemic were allowed to enter Canada.
Individuals granted permission under the Temporary Foreign Worker Program were also permitted to enter Canada during the pandemic. Canada eased various limitations in 2021, resulting in an increase in invitations to newcomers. It is expected that further invites would be distributed in 2022.
Canada intends to invite 432,000 permanent residents this year, according to the immigration levels plan for 2022-2024. IRCC prioritises Federal Skilled Worker Program applications.
PRs will be invited in the first quarter of 2022.
In the first quarter of 2022, Canada has invited around 114,000 permanent residents. Individuals whose status was changed from temporary to permanent included among these candidates. Individuals living outside of Canada were also included.
There are three variables that will contribute to an increase in permanent residents in Canada in 2021. The first factor is that IRCC has boosted its application processing capacity. The second factor is that travel restrictions have been lifted.
The third component is the country’s climate. Every year, the number of immigrants in Canada increases in the second and third quarters. This is because people choose to visit Canada during the warmer months rather than the colder ones.
All three of these issues will have an impact on the invitation to permanent residents in 2022. Around 100,000 newcomers are predicted to arrive in Canada with permanent resident status in the third quarter of 2022.
