The beginning of the year turned out to be a successful one due to the strategies implemented by the Canadian Government. According to the statistics, between January and March of 2020, almost 80% of the population that arrived in Canada was due to immigration.
The first three months recorded 76,000 immigrants migrating from all over the globe. Now, Canada’s population is just under 38 million. Ever since the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a drop in the immigration population. The last time Canada ever faced a situation similar to that was in 2015.
With Novel Coronavirus spreading all over the world, it was brought a halt in the travel industry. On March 18th, Canada implemented strict restrictions to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Due to the restrictions, only a few Canadians — permanent residents and temporary workers, were able to arrive in Canada. The first three months were incredible as they recorded the highest number of immigrants compared to 2019. It is said and of course believed by many immigration experts that if there was no pandemic (our wish of course) then the numbers would have been even higher.
The statistics also claim that COVID-19 is going to leave a huge impact on Canada. For one immigrant contributes a large part to the economy of the nation and secondly, it is expected that there will be a weaker population growth in the next quarter.
But there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. The IRCC — Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada, has said that there has been no change in the 2020-2022 Immigration Levels Plan. In simple terms, once the pandemic is over (hopefully), we will be noticing a large number of immigrants from all over the world setting roots in Canada.
