No Change In Canadas 2011 Immigration Levels

11 Dec 2010


Canada’s immigration plans with regards to immigrant numbers have not changed and will be same as 2010. It will accept between 240,000 and 265,000 immigrants in 2011. The major requirement would be in the skilled workers accounting to 60 percent of immigrants under economic category. The government will also be letting in more spouses and children under the family category.

Immigration Minister, Jason Kenney said, "Canada's post-recession economy demands a high level of legal immigration to keep our workforce strong."

About 75 per cent of the immigrants will likely settle in Ontario, B.C. and Quebec.

According to Citizenship and Immigration Canada, the country's low birthrate and aging population means in the not-too-distant future Canada won't have enough people to keep the workforce growing.

The Federal Skilled Worker Program makes up a significant portion of the economic category, and gives priority to technicians; skilled trades’ people, managers and professionals who help supplement the Canadian-born workforce.
