Federal government to announce new three-year immigration plan
Canada’s Immigration minister Marco Mendocino will announce a plan for the next three-year immigration today. This plan will set to target to welcome skilled candidates, family members, and refugees to Canada.
Due to the crisis of Covid-19, last year's plan for bringing more than one million immigrants over a three-year period didn’t go accordingly. From the beginning of Covid-19, the restriction on travel has slowed down this process. Minister Mendicino mentioned that the government remains promised to bring newcomers in order to maintain Canada’s economy.
Minister Mendicino said, "We believe strongly in building Canada through immigration. Immigration is helping us get through the pandemic, and will be the key to both our short-term economic recovery and long-term prosperity”
"That's exactly why we need to continue with measured, responsible growth to drive Canada's success into the future."
The immigration level plan is expected to be tabled in the House of Commons at about noon ET, and Mendicino is scheduled to hold a news conference in Ottawa at 12:30 p.m. ET.
