BetterPlace Immigration: Canada’s Immigration Levels Plan 2021 – 2023 & Reopening of Visa Application Centres in India

Canada : The pandemic has caused Canada a lot of woe in terms of its immigration plans. The targets set by Canada earlier in the year have become impossible to achieve because of the travel restrictions and limited working capacities of federal offices.

The 2021-2023 Immigration Levels Plan is going to be significant in shaping the future of the country, both economic and social. Canada published it on October 30 after a lot of anticipation from all quarters.

What are the future plans?

Well, the results are in, and it seems like Canada is going on the offensive when it comes to making up for this year’s losses. Targeting the highest immigration targets in its history, Canada is planning to spend the next three years inviting more than 400,000 permanent residents every year. It has set specific annual targets until 2023.

  • 401,000 immigrants in 2021
  • 411,000 immigrants in 2022
  • 421,000 immigrants in 2023

According to the 2021-2023 Immigration Levels Plan, around 60% of immigrants will be admitted into Canada via economic class programs.

Why the high targets?

On March 12 of this year, the Canadian government had announced its intention of welcoming more than one million permanent residents in the period between 2020 and 2022. However, all plans were disrupted when the borders had to be closed because of the pandemic.

The last time Canada allowed over 400,000 immigrants to enter the country was back in 1913, and that should speak for the absurd time we are living in. Canada would rather maintain high levels of immigration than fall behind because the low birth rates can have a negative impact on the economy at any time. Immigrants are key to economic growth in Canada.

Canada Visa Application Centres to resume operations in India

The Government of Canada made an announcement stating that the Visa Application Centres or VACs located in India will begin operating again from November 20, 2020.

The VACs are set to prioritize family class applicants and international students who have been detained for such a long time. Candidates will be able to set up biometrics appointments in Mumbai, Chandigarh, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, and Jalandhar. It goes without saying that the VACs are going to follow all safety measures and limit the number of appointments in a day.
