COVID-19 has highlighted the importance of immigrants on the Canadian communities and on all the sectors of the economy. The health-care industry depends on immigrants to keep all Canadians safe and healthy. Other Canadian industries like IT and agriculture also rely on skilled new-comers to maintain supply chains, expand businesses and create jobs.



Because of the travel restrictions and capacity constraints, the total number of admissions has faced shortage over the last several months. To compensate for these, Canadian government has continued to welcome 1% of the total population of the country, 401,000 in 2020, 411,000 in 2021, and 421,000 in 2023.
