This explains why the country has been issuing nominations to apply for permanent residents (PR) through Express Entry & various Canada PNP at an unprecedented scale and consistently for more than a decade.

With the introduction of the new Immigration Levels Plan, Canada will further target over 400,000 new immigrants annually till 2023.
