Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada is a department in Canada’s federal government to manage the duties and responsibilities regarding immigration. As Canada’s labor market is facing labor challenges post the pandemic, the federal government is trying its best to make it better. Hence, IRCC minister Sean Fraser announced that the country is going to increase the immigration level to achieve the year’s target. Therefore, the Canadian government issued a plan named the “Immigration Levels Plan.” So, as part of the plan, the country is likely to welcome 4,01,000 immigrants in 2021. Hence, Canada is pursuing the plan since then and has introduced various strategies to achieve the same. Hence, it is the right time to contact the visa consultants in Chennai to know about the Canadian immigration level.
The IRCC’s backlog for the permanent residence application stood up to 1.8 million as of October 2021. The backlog comprises applications of Canadian citizenship, temporary residence, and permanent residence applications. In July 2021 the backlogs rose from 1.5 million applications to 1.8 million in October 2021. Hence, the strategy used by IRCC to meet the 2021 immigration targets is to focus on the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) and Temporary Resident to Permanent Resident (TR2PR) pathway candidates. So, the country holds on to the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) invitations from December 2020.
Thus, this strategy worked effectively, and the backlogs were processed drastically, resulting in only 1,08,500 as of September 2021. Similarly, the Express Entry permanent application was also processed from 99,968 to 8,500 applications over time. Hence, the IRCC department still needs to work on the Express Entry candidates to meet the plan’s target.
IRCC is striving hard to clear the backlogs before resuming the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) invitations. Therefore, the Canadian government is planning various programs and relaxations to fulfill their labor market. So, approach Aramvisas-Canada immigration consultants in Chennai to know more.
