COVID-19 Continues to Loom Big Over Canadian Immigration in 2022

The coronavirus pandemic is expected to continue to loom large over Canadian immigration through 2022, as the pandemic forces Canada to alter its travel restrictions on a regular basis.

The pandemic has also resulted in longer application wait times and a shift in Canadian rules to prioritize candidates from within the country.

Key Takeaways:

  • The coronavirus pandemic is expected to have a considerable influence on Canadian immigration through 2022.
  • Longer application wait periods and a change in Canadian policies to prioritize candidates from within the nation have also emerged from the outbreak.
  • During the pandemic, immigration targets were raised, and application processing continued.

Despite the pandemic, Canada’s government has remained committed to its three-pronged immigration policy goals of growing the economy, reuniting families, and supporting those in need.

Immigration targets have been raised, and application processing has continued during the pandemic.

However, as the epidemic enters its third calendar year, COVID-19 will undoubtedly remain the most important factor affecting Canadian immigration.

In 2022, Canada is projected to make two Immigration Levels Plan announcements. The plans will detail Canada’s goals for new permanent residents and the services that will be used to welcome them.

According to the present plan, Canada will welcome 411,000 new immigrants in 2022 and 421,000 in 2023, but these estimates may change once the federal government releases its updated Immigration Levels Plan.

The first will be on Feb. 10, when Minister Fraser will present Canada’s Immigration Levels Plan 2022-2024. This is the announcement that usually happens in the autumn but has been postponed because of the Canadian election in September 2021.

The second announcement will be routine and will take place by Nov. 1, unless Canada holds another election, which is quite improbable.

Because of several variables such as growing labor shortages in Canada, application backlogs, and the federal government’s vow to resettle 40,000 Afghan refugees, even greater levels are possible.
