Canada issued 11,000 invites in August 2020


Canada issued 11,000 invites in August 2020

The Corona Virus pandemic has caused a low level of immigration, but the immigration levels are poised towards a rebound.

Canada has welcomed 11,315 new permanent residents in August 2020. The invites sent in August is much lower than the 13,645 immigrants number welcomed by Canada in July.

August was very sleek in terms of invites as not only the invitees were less in number than the July applicants, but also the number is far below the number of appellants welcomed in August 2019. The reasons are pandemic related, of course, as Canada has restrained few areas because of COVID 19.

The target immigration for the year 2020 was set at 341,000 new immigrants, which are very close to the target immigrations in 2019. But, with the fewer immigration levels this year Canada is expected to fall short of its immigration targets by 200000 Immigrants. As between January and August of 2020, Canada has welcomed only 128400 applicants.

This fall in the immigration levels is, of course, temporary till the time things pick up, and some sort of recluse is on cards from COVID 19. Canada wants to invite a high level of immigrants as its economy is tied to the immigration levels, and this can be proven by the large number of Program-specific draws that were held in the second quarter of 2020. In the bi-weekly Express Entry draws there were some record-breaking invites. After this, the third quarter registered the Biggest invites of all times to make up for the loss in the previous months, in three draws of September there were 4200 applicants issued invited.

The PNP has also been very active with provinces like Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia. The Quebec province of Canada, which has its immigration system also held the largest draw recently.

The Canadian government is fairly keen on having regular invites as highlighted by the immigration authorities in September.

In this endeavor, there was also a reopening of the Parents and Grandparents Program (PGP). From 13 October to 3rd November, which was recently announced. The target set for 2021 was 30,000. Seeing the speedy increase in the interest of immigrations. The year 2021 is expected to a year of high targets and also high migrations.
