Canada could welcome up to 390,000 new immigrants per year by 2022 according to the new multi-year immigration levels plan released by the federal government on Thursday.
Ottawa’s plan includes mid-range targets of 341,000 new immigrants in 2020, 351,000 in 2021 and 361,000 in 2022.
However, the plan also projected high-range immigration levels of 370,000, 380,000 and 390,000 in each of the next three years, which would see Canada welcome 1.14 million new permanent residents between now and 2022.
The levels plan is a continuation of the managed immigration increases seen under the Liberal federal government since it came to power in 2015.
