The crucial call to decide how many potential people are accepted into Canada is determined by six key indicators, but there is one main reason.
The launch of the 2020-2022 Canadian Immigration Level Program in Canada will spark more debate. The debate should focus on topics such as the number of refugees Canada should accept, the groups they will belong to, and how Canada has the capacity to integrate these arrivals into its economy and culture.
Both questions are relevant and deserve more attention and debate. However, in general, we do not talk much about what goes on to determine the immigration rate.
The difficult decision to decide how many immigrants Canada would accept per year is determined by six main factors:
- Trends and economy
- Canadian Government Priorities
- Global conditions
- Canada’s absorption potential
- Canada’s production capacity
Demography and economy
Welcome immigration to Canada is an economic necessity due to the demographic conditions of the world.
Canada is one of the largest populations in the world and has the lowest birth rate in the world. Therefore, Canada must accept immigration to stimulate the population and labour force expansion, which is imperative to maintain economic development.
Many countries do not consider immigrants because they have smaller demography and a low birth rate, but on the other hand, Canada will see a high standard of living due to the lack of immigration.
Canada accepts refugees for three main reasons: economic prosperity, family unity and assistance to refugees.
As a result, immigration rates are also determined with these priorities in mind, and Canada is currently doing a lot to meet these priorities, as it accepts that about 40% of its Canada is responsible for helping in the event of international emergency.
Canada’s Immigration Potential
The federal government will be convinced that the economic conditions of the world are strong enough to prepare immigrants for the job market. In turn, it should ensure the continuation of policies at the national level, such as sufficient funding for refugee settlements (for example, language and vocational training), social housing, community care and public transport to effectively support a population wider.
Canada’s productive power
Since the global demand for migration to Canada greatly exceeds the country’s migratory availability, the federal government should be aware of its desire to process immigration applications as efficiently as possible. Even if the nation were to accept higher immigration rates, it still does not have the productive power to do so.
Canada has strengthened its production capacity in recent years with the introduction of the Express Entry Document Management Program, but still processes a variety of paper visa applications, which are slow and require significant staff support.
