Immigration is expected to increase Canada’s population to 40 million in June 2023
According to recent statistics, Canada’s population is expected to reach 40 million in June 2023. This growth is mainly attributed to the influx of immigrants into the country. Canada has been welcoming thousands of immigrants annually, with a target of admitting over 500,000 annually by 2025. The Canadian government has implemented policies and programs to attract skilled workers and entrepreneurs worldwide. These efforts have successfully attracted a diverse pool of immigrants to Canada, contributing to the country’s economic growth and cultural diversity.

Immigration applications to Canada have decreased in the first quarter of 2023
Applications to immigrate to Canada dropped by 12% in the first quarter of this year compared to the same period last year. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) data shows a decrease from 83,691 to only 73,358 applications. Even more striking is the 39.3% drop in monthly average applications from 40,312 in the last quarter of 2022 to only 24,453 in the first three months of this year. This drop in applications is due to fewer foreign nationals applying for permanent residency from some countries, which are important sources of new residents in Canada.
