The permanent resident intake figures for the July month is out and Canada is known to admit 13, 645 immigrants during the month. Although Canada usually welcomes the highest levels of new immigrants each July, this year is particularly affected by the pandemic.
Since the imposition of travel restrictions in March, the month of June welcomed the highest number of permanent residents. The same stood at 11,000 immigrants in May, and just 4,000 in April. However, optimism surrounding the current state of Canadian Immigration is still prominent.

Current state of Canadian Immigration
No matter what impact the travel restrictions had on Canadian immigration, the local authorities are still processing applications and even issuing new permanent residence invitations to successful applicants.
Canada is dependent on the immigration of economic-class candidates to overcome dual demographic shocks. It’s flagship system to manage applications for federal immigration programs is Express Entry.
It has created a new record of its own by issuing more invitations to apply (ITAs) for permanent residence on a year-over-year basis. So far in 2020 alone, the Express Entry system has issued nearly 70,000 ITAs for permanent residence. The figure compares high with 56,200 ITAs issued around the same time last year.
Also, the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) continues to nominate a high number of immigrants alongside the federal Express Entry. Not only that, but the authorities seem to be committed to its 2020-2022 Immigration Levels Plan.
With increasing resoluteness to strengthen the Immigration system, Canada is expected to release a revised 2021-2023 Immigration Levels Plan on November 1, 2020.
