What immigration levels we can expect in the coming years?
Observers continue to analyze the immigration policy under the new Liberal minority government. According to the current immigration plan, the Liberals hope to increase immigration numbers from 2019’s 330,800 people to 350,000 people by 2021. Based on the tiered method adopted by the Liberals, we can predict that the government plans to increase immigration numbers by 10,000 people annually. This means that Canada’s total immigration population will reach 370,000 by 2023. Another aspect of the policy is to help small cities and rural communities to attract more newcomers, and programs like Atlantic Immigration Pilot (AIPP), the Municipal Nominee Program (MNP), the Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot (RNIP) are aimed to implement this goal.

Canada should improve student immigration
According to a recently released report entitled ‘Scaling International Education’, Canadian Immigration authorities must ease the immigration opportunities for international students. The report was prepared by a group of researchers and experts from the Century Initiative, a Toronto-based think tank that focuses on increasing the population of Canada to 100 million by 2100. The main idea of the report is that international students are ideal immigrants for the Canadian labour market, but the retention level of this highly skilled human capital faces many obstacles in becoming permanent residents. Only one-third of foreign graduates remain in the country.
