Why Canada?

Why Canada?



✓ The World Economic League Table, places Canada as one of the world’s 10 largest economies,
and the report forecasts continued economic growth powered in part by immigration over the next decade.

✓ The amount of study permit issued by Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC)
has increased a great deal in recent years. In 2022, Canada welcomed a record breaking 551,405 international students from 184 countries. As of the end of 2022, there were 807,750 international students holding valid study permits in Canada.

✓ According to recent data from Statistics Canada, the country’s total population is estimated to be over 39.5 million (as of January 1, 2023). This means that, for the first time ever, Canada’s population grew by over one million people in a single year. This comes as Canada experienced a record-high population growth of 1,050,110 people between January 1, 2022, and January 1, 2023.

✓ Canada’s 600,000+ increase in temporary residents for 2022 marks yet another single-year record high for the country. According to the reported data, this increase in temporary residents was spread across the country, with all of Canada’s provinces and territories seeing growth in the number of work permits, study permits, and asylum claimants.

✓ In 2022, Canada also set a new record for the number of immigrants
welcomed in one year (over 437,000).

✓ Canada’s latest Immigration Levels Plan for 2023-2025 indicates that the government hopes to further increase immigration over the next three years, with total annual immigration targets as high as 500,000 in 2025.
