Canada Immigration Program
Canada Immigration Program, Canada plans to welcome over 1.3 million immigrants in the upcoming years between 2022 to 2024. A candidate can access more than 100 immigration pathways available by the Canadian Government to make the immigration process more accessible.
Canada is heaven for immigrants & immigrants are like a support system for the Canadian economy. Canada is an employment hub with various job opportunities in different fields, but Canada has a labor shortage and a growing population of old age people.
Canada accepts immigrants under three categories: Economic class, family class, and refugee and humanitarian class.
The Economic Class welcomes skilled and talented workers to work, develop and invest in Canada and support Canada's economy. There are mainly two reasons for welcoming immigrants under the Economic class. Firstly, Canada has a growing population of older people and a low birth rate. Secondly, Canada has a massive shortage of skilled workers in their industries. So, to deal with all these situations, Canada promotes an economic class immigration program.
Family Class- Canada & its people believe that they can make a strong society only if a family supports each other. Family is the most important root of any society and its economy. Canada welcomes family members of the PR candidates under the family sponsorship program.
Refugee and Humanitarian class- Canada is a leader in accepting immigrants and refugees under the refugee and humanitarian cases. Canada believes in upholding the rights of immigrants and refugees.
Canada is a multicultural and very friendly country. The people of Canada welcome immigrants because immigrants act as a backbone of the Canadian economy.
Skilled Worker Immigration Program
Canada plans to welcome over 400,000 immigrants each year under the Skilled worker immigration program, and 60% of them come from skilled workers. The leading immigration pathway to immigrate to Canada as a skilled worker is through Express Entry Program.
