2020-2029 will mark a decade of major growth in the Canadian economy & population, thanks to increasing levels of immigration. The past decade witnessed a complete revamp of Canada’s economic class immigration programs that also impacted Canada’s family class programs.


 As a consequence, the effects will be carried forward in this decade in the form of an increase in the newcomers’ population. The growing dependency on newcomers to augment the Canadian economy is evident with the liberal immigration policies followed by the federal & provincial governments.  


To welcome more than 3 million newcomers over the coming decade 

Canada’s aging population and the low birth rate is the main reason why we may expect the country to welcome even higher levels of immigration over the coming decade. 


If the country wants to maintain the same level of population growth, i.e. one percent annually or more, it will need to gradually increase its newcomer levels from its target of 350,000 in 2021 to about 400,000 annually by the end of the decade.


Provincial & Regional Nominee Programs likely to dominate

With greater autonomy being granted to Canadian provinces in selecting desirable immigrants, Canadian immigration in future years may witness increasing competition & changing eligibility requirements. Also, the rise of new Municipal Nominee Programs that is likely to be announced soon will help further regionalization of skilled immigration in Canada.
