Canada Admitting 285,000 New Permanent Residents in 2015
Citizenship and Immigration Minister Chris Alexander has announced that the government will be offering permanent residence status to a target of 285,000 new immigrants, the highest number since 2010. Sixty five percent of those admitted will, as per Chris Alexander, be economic immigrants which highlights the government’s belief in immigration being a key to Canada’s prosperity.
“We are recruiting a higher calibre of economic immigrant than we have ever seen before,” Mr.Alexander said. “This [increase in the proportion of economic immigrants] is a goal we’ve had for some time. Many provinces already have 70 per cent economic immigration; that’s the aspiration Canada has as well.”
The government’s plan falls in line with the other changes happening in January 2015, specifically the new Express Entry program for highly skilled workers. The express entry program will see a decrease in processing times when applicants are filing for permanent residence which will allow new immigrants to land in Canada faster and more efficiently.
