9th express entry draw 2018

Immigrants cause 80% of population growth in Canada in 2020

Immigrants cause 80% of population growth in Canada in 2020

A new Statistics Canada study finds that Canada’s population increased by 76,000 in the first three months of 2020, 82% of the growth coming from immigration. Canada’s population now represents just under 38 million people.

Canada experienced its smallest population increase in the first quarter since 2015 due to the coronavirus.

The COVID-19 pandemic arrived in Canada in January and subsequently had a major impact on travel to the country. Since March 18, Canada has put in place travel restrictions to help reduce the spread of the virus. The effects of COVID-19 likely contributed to the fact that fewer Canadians returned to the country and fewer temporary residents arrived, compared to the same period in 2019.

The number of immigrants was higher in the first three months of 2020 compared to 2019. Nearly 70,000 immigrants arrived in Canada at the start of this year, compared to almost 66,000 in the first quarter of 2019.

The number of immigrants in Canada in early 2020 would likely have been even higher without the pandemic, as immigration levels started to drop in March.

Arrivals of temporary residents were almost 80% lower than in 2019, mainly due to a decrease in the number of new international students coming to Canada.

The Statistics Canada study predicts that COVID-19 will have an even greater impact on the levels of permanent and temporary residents of Canada between April and the end of June 2020. Given Canada’s dependence on immigration to fuel population growth, we can expect a weaker population to grow in the next quarterly Statistics Canada study.

Nevertheless, IRCC – Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada, continues to say that its 2020-2022 immigration levels plan has not changed due to the coronavirus. This means that once the pandemic is over, we can expect immigration to play the important role it played before the pandemic in supporting the country’s population, labour force, and economic growth.
