Indians continue to lead way for the number of immigrants moved to Canada in 2020

Indians continue to lead way for the number of immigrants moved to Canada in 2020

In March, Canada continued to receive high levels of immigration.

In fact, just days before the closings in Canada, the country’s immigration minister announced an ambitious new plan to welcome more than a million new permanent residents between 2020 and 2022.

Although Canada’s immigration system has since experienced interruptions, the country is processing immigration applications to the best of its ability.

New data released by Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) provides a first glimpse of the origins of new immigrants to Canada in the first months of 2020. Until the end of April, Canada has welcomed 74,000 new permanent residents.

Indians in Majority

As has been the case in recent years, India has remained the primary source country for Canada’s new permanent resident visa (PR) holders. They represented 24% of new PRs in the first four months of 2020.

India is the main source of immigrants to Canada, as many of its citizens are fluent in English and have other key characteristics that help them become eligible for Canadian immigration, such as having university degrees and/or college and professional work experience.

Many Indian immigrants also arrive in Canada from the United States, as it can be difficult for H1-B visa holders to obtain permanent residence in the United States.

Following is the list of top 10 source countries of the 74,000 immigrants who have gained their permanent residency in the first four months of 2020:

  • India
  • China
  • Philippines
  • USA
  • Nigeria
  • Pakistan
  • Syria
  • France
  • Iran
  • Brazil

So far, immigration from China has been slightly higher in 2020 than in recent years. Chinese immigrants made up almost 10% of newcomers, up from 9% in 2019. Philippine immigration to Canada has also remained fairly constant (7% in 2020 compared to 8% in 2019).

As was the case in 2019, American and Nigerian immigrants complete the top 5. Immigrants from these countries have a major advantage in Canada’s immigration system because of their command of English, which is a major component. of the federal express entry system, Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), and other programs.

COVID -19 impact on source countries

It remains to be seen how the COVID-19 pandemic will affect the countries of origin of immigrants to Canada during the rest of 2020.

On the one hand, disruptions related to coronaviruses currently limit the ability of new permanent residents to come to Canada from abroad. This could change the distribution of immigrants’ countries of origin in the second half.

On the other hand, there may be little or no impact on the countries of origin of immigrants to Canada. Reasons may include that people in Canada who receive PRs later in 2020 are also from the same countries of origin, those abroad may eventually travel to Canada and new invitations to apply for permanent residence issued since the start of the pandemic also affects the nationals of these main countries of origin.

Despite the repercussions of travel restrictions, it is always in the interest of applicants to present their Express Entry profile and their immigration applications during the pandemic if they have the capacity to do so. By submitting a profile or request, you have the option of receiving an invitation to submit a request or approval for permanent residence, and the option of traveling to Canada as soon as you are able to do so.

Even if you are having trouble, IRCC is more forgiving during this time to help people achieve their immigration goals in Canada.
