Canada landed a stunning 45,000 new immigrants in September as per a report published in CIC News.
Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) have achieved historic immigration levels in a single month. The new September figure speaks volumes for itself about the Canadian immigration system that has been struggling to process applications during the pandemic.
A successful landing in Canada is said to occur when a foreign national see their legal status in Canada converted to permanent residence. However, this is not limited to individuals entering Canada from overseas but also applied to the temporary residents living in Canada transitioning to permanent residence.
The federal government has already implemented suitable measures to achieve its annual immigration target of 401,000 continuing till 2023. Canada got off to a strong start to the year before losing momentum. Beginning in June, however, Canada started to pick up the pace with the landing of 35,000 immigrants.

The 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 has now landed 267,000 immigrants this year. It will need to land 134,000 more immigrants between October and December to achieve its 401,000 newcomers’ annual target. This works out to about 45,000 new permanent residents per month.
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.

Canadian immigration has created a new record of its own by issuing more invitations to apply (ITAs) for permanent residence on a year-over-year basis. The Express Entry system has already achieved its annual target of 108,500 permanent residence nominations. Meanwhile, the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) continues to nominate a high number of immigrants.
Among the nominated immigrants, a more domestic pool of temporary workers and international graduates are being favoured for permanent residency. However, with the opening up of its borders for international travel and foreign travellers, we may soon see more individuals from overseas enter Canada to study, work or settle permanently.
