Major Changes to the Temporary Foreign Workers Program for Canada
24th, Dec 2021
On December 23, 2021, the Government announced that in 2021,
Canada has already reached the target of 401,000 new permanent residents as part of the 2021–2023 Immigration Levels Plan, breaking the previous record from 1913.
Considering the pandemic’s many challenges, this historic achievement becomes particularly significant.
Around 75% of Canada’s population growth and almost 100% of Canada’s labour force growth comes from immigration. In 2011, immigrants represented 20.7% of Canada’s population which is estimated to increase up to 30% by 2036.
