Sean Fraser, Canada’s Minister for Immigration, has said that Canada will allow 4.1 million immigrants to settle permanently in 2021, giving priority to temporary residents.
The driving force of Canada’s economy and population growth is dependent on immigrants. However, in 2020 this permanent immigration facility was reduced. In that year it was possible to give this facility to 1 lakh 75 thousand people. The main reason behind this was the epidemic of coronavirus. The country’s borders were closed most of the time due to the epidemic.
Meanwhile, a statement from Canada’s immigration minister said that a large number of those who have been granted permanent residency in the country were living temporarily in Canada. In the last 100 years, Canada has not allowed so many immigrants a permanent residency in one year.
The Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeo came to power in 2015. He has increased immigration benefits since coming to power. He has also set a target in this regard. According to Canada’s Immigration Policy, 1 percent of the country’s total population will receive immigration benefits each year. The current population of Canada is 36 million. According to this calculation, Canada is expected to receive 3 lakh 60 thousand immigrants every year. However, the Canadian government is increasing this number every year.
The Government of Canada released some new information yesterday. According to these documents, economic activity in Canada has been increasing for six months. The Corona epidemic is nearing economic activity as it was before.
