- 2021: 401,000 immigrants
- 2022: 411,000 immigrants
- 2023: 421,000 immigrants
The only time Canada welcomed over 400,000 immigrants in a year was 1913, as it confessed 401,000 newcomers. It’s never come close to the figure again.

Why Canada is maintaining high immigration !
Canada is maintaining high levels of immigration to offset the adverse economic and fiscal impacts of its aging population and low birth rate.
Canada has one of the world’s oldest inhabitants, with nearly 18 per cent of its population being age 65 and over. It also has among the world’s lowest birth rates at 1.47 births per woman. Therefore, Canada will face challenges increasing its market and encouraging government spending in the future. These challenges can be alleviated by enticing more immigrants to support labor force and economic growth.
Since its founding in 1867, Canada has welcomed at 300,000 immigrants in a year just five times. It’s currently welcoming 0.9 percent of its inhabitants in immigrants, which can be three times higher than the per capita novice intake in the USA.
At the same time, Canada has had a greater per capita intake in the past, welcoming 1 percent or more of its own population in novices, something it frequently achieved in the decades before the First World War.
Canada’s immigration record has been achieved in 1913 when it welcomed 401,000 immigrants that was more than 5 percent of its inhabitants in newcomers. Today, a 5 percent newcomer intake would lead to 2 million new immigrants coming to Canada.
Canadian immigration during COVID-19
While entrance targets are growing, Canada has been experiencing a drop in the the number of new permanents landing in the nation in 2020. There were 64 percent fewer new permanent residents declared in August, compared to August 2019. This is partly due to the number of people that were approved for permanent residence, but were unable to go to Canada prior to their immigration documents expired as a result of coronavirus-related travel limitations and other disruptions.
Public assistance for immigration in Canada has increased over the duration of the pandemic, according to an Environics Institute study. By a five-to-one perimeter, Canadians report that immigration makes Canada a better country, and they are more likely to say this is because it makes for a more varied and cosmopolitan location to reside. Another poll from the Association of Canadian Studies discovered that Canadians normally see immigration as favorable for long-term economic recovery, but they wish to see relatives given priority for immigration.
