This keeps in line with the Canada’s higher admission targets for 2019 and 2020 as they look to invite more skilled and capable immigrants via the skilled economic immigration program s. IRCC is looking to issue more invitations than the last year 2018 which was a record breaking year for the maximum number of invitations issued in a single year with 89,800 invitations issued.
