Canada saw a two-fold increase in temporary resident visas in 2022

New statistics from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) show that the number of foreign nationals in Canada with temporary resident visas more than doubled last year.

In 2022, Canada's immigration department issued over 3.1 million temporary resident visas - a remarkable 101.5% increase from the 1,544,867 visas granted in 2021.

Following Russia's onslaught on Ukraine in February 2022, Ottawa implemented special measures to help Ukrainians escape their war-torn country and find a haven in Canada.

Consequently, this resulted in a considerable upsurge in temporary residents, with nearly half being Ukrainian citizens fleeing violence. #IRCC, #Statistics, #CUAET, #TRV, #work_permits, #Ukraine, #temporary_residents
