A move that is being as the most ambitious in the Canadian history will usher in nearly 1 million new immigrants till 2020. The immigration minister, Ahmed Hussen has stated that in the period between 2018 till 2020, nearly 10 lakh new immigrants will find home in the country.
Most of these economic immigrants will find way to Canada through the express entry system. In an expansive target tabled in the House of Commons a few weeks ago, new multi-year immigration levels plan has been set out. All immigration targets through the various Express Entry streams will increase every year until 2020.
The new plan is very different from the previous plans that have set targets for the upcoming years. This plan is touted to benefit all Canadians because immigrants will help contribute to the economic growth and innovation in the country and keep the country as a front runner in the Global economy. 3,10,000 new immigrants will settle in Canada in 2018 with these numbers increasing to 3,30,000 in 2019 and 3,40,000 in 2020, which are the targets as set out in the new plan.

Around 5,65,000 amongst these new immigrants will find entry into Canada through the economic programmes. Through the year, the Government has again and again reiterated that Express Entry will the main driver for all federal immigration. More ITA’s (Invitation to apply) have been issued in 2017 compared to the previous two years put together. Almost quarter million new immigrants are envisaged to come in through one single economic programme managed under Express Entry.

The intake for the Express Entry applicants in 2017 saw a decrease in the CRS scores with the minimum falling to 413 in June whereas last year this minimum was 450 for the Federal Skilled Workers Class. The reason for this fall was the increase in no of immigrant’s intake set out. The Federal Skilled Trades Class also saw a decline in the CRS scores at which ITA’s were sent. This threshold dipped to 241.Higher intake targets may contribute towards even lower CRS thresholds in the coming years.
