The Canadian government released the Annual Report on Immigration 2020 to the parliament. The report gives an overview of the Canadian public and the Canadian parliament on the latest developments in Canada immigration. It’s presented along with the Canada Immigration Levels Plan.
Here are the highlights of the report:
newcomers in 2019
|PR visas– 341,000|
|Study permits – 400,000|
|Work permits – 400,000|
Express Entry immigrants

The PNP contributed the majority of economic class immigration to most of the Canadian provinces and territories. The provinces heavily dependent on such immigration include:
- Newfoundland and Labrador
- The Northwest Territories
- Nova Scotia
- Prince Edward Island
- New Brunswick
Family class applications are processed by IRCC within 12 months of receipt.
IRCC has been lately giving more prominence to Francophone immigrants. Recently, IRCC announced that immigrants who speak French or are bilingual will get extra points under Express Entry. French-speaking candidates will get 15 to 25 points and bilingual candidates will get 30 to 50 points. This is expected to increase the admission of French-speaking immigrants in Canada outside Quebec. Canada’s target is 4.4% of such candidates by 2023.
