The pandemic has altered how we see Canada immigration and the procedure by which people move here for employment or higher education.

Canada Immigration Plan for the rest of 2022 was recently announced, including some significant changes. For one, the government is planning to welcome more new immigrants. They’re also increasing the number of economic immigrants and making it easier for highly-skilled workers to come to Canada. In this blog post, we’ll look at what these changes mean for Canada’s economy and the job market.

Canada Immigration : What to Expect for the Rest of 2022

2022 is shaping to be another busy year for Canadian immigration, with a NEW program and some changes set to take effect. Here’s a quick overview of what you can expect in the coming year.

The Good: Express Entry, New Program & Policy

  • Express Entry Is Back

    There was a time not too long ago when the Canadian Express Entry program was on hiatus. Thankfully, the program is back and running smoothly as of July 6th, 2022, with 1500 invitations. If you’re unfamiliar with Express Entry, it’s a program that allows eligible candidates to apply for permanent residence in Canada. The program is designed to attract skilled workers worldwide and has been very successful.
    If you’re interested in applying for the Canadian Express Entry program, now is the time to do it. The program is currently accepting applications, and we encourage you to apply as soon as possible. We hope this program will help you realize your dreams of living and working in Canada.
  • New Program & Policy

    The Canadian government has announced a new immigration program that will make it easier for temporary workers and students to obtain permanent residency. The details are set to launch in September 2022.
    This new program directly responds to the needs of Canadian businesses, which have been struggling to find enough workers to fill open positions. The program will also help address the shortage of skilled workers in specific industries, such as healthcare and technology.
    If you are a temporary worker or international student interested in obtaining permanent residency in Canada, keep an eye out for more information on this new program. It could be your first step towards a new life in Canada.

The Bad: Application backlog & processing delays

  • Application Backlogs
    Canada Immigration Backlog continues to be a source of frustration for many applicants. The pandemic has caused significant delays in processing times, and the backlog continues to grow.
    According to June’s most recently available statistics, Canada is currently experiencing a significant backlog of immigration applications that need to be processed. There are now 2.4 million applications waiting to be processed, which is a substantial increase from the 1.4 million applications in the queue one year ago.
    The war in Ukraine has also led to a surge in applications, with over 300,000 applications and new applications still being accepted.
    This backlog is significantly impacting applicants, many of whom are still waiting for their applications to be processed. This has led to frustration and even anger in some cases. Canadian immigration authorities are working to clear the backlog, but it is still a significant problem.
  • Processing Delays
    Delays in Canada immigration application process will likely continue due to a large number of new applications surging in and limited resources. The number of people waiting for their applications to be processed has more than doubled in the last year, and it is taking longer and longer for applications to be processed.
    The government has said that it is taking steps to reduce the delays, but it is hard to say how successful these measures will be at this initial stage of the process. In the meantime, if you are hoping to immigrate to Canada, it is essential to be patient and prepared for a long wait.

Program specific updates

  • IEC
    The International Experience Canada (IEC) program, which includes the popular Working Holiday program, is back to its previous level ( before the pandemic). This is good news for young people who want to travel and work in other countries.
    The IEC program was put on hold due to the pandemic, but it has now been reopened and is accepting applications. If you’re interested in applying, you can do so through the IEC website’
    This season, more than 90,000 invitations have been distributed; nevertheless, there are still a substantial number of invitations available. The conclusion of the IEC season often occurs in November, so if you want to apply, now is your chance.
    If selected, you’ll be able to work and travel in Canada for up to two years. This is an excellent opportunity to explore a beautiful country and gain international work experience.
  • PNP
    In recent years, Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) have become an increasingly popular way for immigrants to come to Canada. And it’s no wonder why – PNPs offer several advantages, from a streamlined application process to a faster path to Canadian permanent residency.
    Currently, there are over 80 PNPs across Canada, and that number is only expected to grow in the coming years. The Canadian government has announced that it plans to admit more than 80,000 new permanent residents through PNPs in 2022.
    So if you’re interested in immigrating to Canada, a PNP may be the way. Check out our website to learn more about PNPs and see if you’re eligible to apply.
  • Family Sponsorship
    The Canadian government has recently announced changes to the family sponsorship program to make it easier for parents and grandparents to visit and immigrate to Canada.
    The government has also said it is working on catching up with the backlog of sponsorship applications. This is good news for families waiting for their sponsorship to be processed.

The Future of Canada Immigration

The year 2020 has been a rollercoaster ride for Canada immigration. The pandemic has changed the way we think about immigration and the process by which people come to Canada. Amid all this change, it can be difficult to predict what the future holds for Canadian immigration.

Looking ahead to 2022, we can expect to see more jobs available for immigrants as the economy begins to rebound. However, the process of immigrating to Canada will become stricter as the government looks to better control the flow of people into the country. So if you’re thinking of immigrating to Canada shortly, be prepared to jump through a few more hoops than you would have in the past.
