Canada to exceed the proposed target for 2024

Looking at the current speed of immigration, it is predicted that Canada will not only exceed its proposed target for the years 2022 and 2023 but even for 2024, up by 4.5 percent.

The Century Initiative mainly focuses on Canadian population growth which is essential for the prosperity and growth of the country’s economy.

This non-profit organization believes that population growth of up to 100 million by the end of the year 2100, will reduce the pressure on government revenues. This is further expected to support old age security, healthcare, and other services.

In 2019, the Century Initiative proposed a certain target for 2022-2025 and is set to invite 500,000 residents in the year 2026.
