Canada is prepared to welcome more than 1 million newcomers over the next three years.

The Canadian Parliament detailed its plans to add hundreds of thousands of permanent residents each year from 2019 to 2021 in its 2018 Annual Report to Parliament on Immigration. Outlining Canada’s immigration goals for 2019-2021, the annual report states that “under this plan, Canada will welcome more talented workers with the skills and expertise our economy needs, reunite more family members and accommodate more refugees looking to start new lives.”

In a statement, Ahmed Hussen, Canada’s minister of immigration, refugees and citizenship, said, “immigrants and their descendants have made immeasurable contributions to Canada and our future success depends on continuing to ensure they are welcomed and well-integrated.”
