Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) introduced the first multi-year immigration levels in 2017 and kicked off admissions targets for 2018-2020 for Canada’s economic, family, expatriate, and charitable immigration programs. This set up was later replaced in 2018 with IRCC’s immigration levels targets for 2019-2021.
The mainstream of projected economic admissions would be allotted through the federal Express Entry system programs:
- The Federal trained/Skilled worker (FSW) Program
- The Federal Skilled Trades Class (FSTC); and
- The Canadian Experience Class (CEC).
Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) in Canada is equally expected to play a very delicate and important role with regards to economic immigration. This program permits collaborating Canadian provinces and territories to put forward eligible immigration candidates who have the necessary skill and labour force adaptability necessary to obtain a permanent residency.
