The number of Chinese visitors coming to Canada has sharply decreased
Only eight planes fly to Vancouver International Airport from China each week, unlike the 55 that arrived three years ago. The number of applications from Chinese nationals for Canada’s 10-year visas has dipped sharply, as have requests for student visas and interest in permanent residency. China’s Communist leaders continue to pressure Chinese citizens, including travel to other countries. Due to stricter regulations in China, Canada has seen demographic shifts. Despite five years ago, people from China made up the largest group of temporary residents; now, Indian nationals make up the majority

Immigration to Canada slightly decreased in August
Immigration to Canada decreased in August, yet the country is still projected to surpass its goal for the year. By late August, Canada had accepted 309,240 new permanent residents – an average of 38,655 per month, which puts the nation on track to welcome 463,860 by December 31. Suppose the current trend continues, even with the slowdown in immigration in August. In that case, when 32,215 new permanent residents have been admitted, Canada will still beat its immigration target of 431,645 permanent residents for 2022.
