The Annual Immigration Target of Canada in 2017 is out and it says a figure of 300,000 immigrants have flocked to Canada. However, many people think that the rates would be even higher, as there is huge spurt in the number of migrants these days. It is a matter of fact that the target was same for the year 2016 when the government of Canada had the goal of bringing in 56,000 refugees from Syria.
The immigration plan consists of different aspects which show the numbers of immigrants expected from different categories. Statistics reveal that there are 172,500 immigrants from Economic category, 84,000 immigrants from family category and 40,000 refugees which add up to a total of 300,000 immigrants. In 2017, numbers of refugees is expected to decrease while the economic immigrants are expected to increase.
These figures can extend up to 320,000 as the upper limit set for economic immigrants are 183,500. If it is likely to go by this figure then the score for Express Entry System would be further decremented. According to the hypothetical condition, in 2017 the economic admission may face a decrease of component of about 25%. It will reflect upon the allowance of 55,275 new admissions in Canada coming from the categories like skilled worker, Canadian experience class, post graduate students and Atlantic Immigration Plot Program.
It is also expected that international students who had graduated from Universities based in Canada will be able to secure an ITA without a LMIA, when they are submitting an application for Permanent Residence (PR).
The larger number of invitations can only get positive response if the CRS score will be decreased. New rules will help the postgraduate students to settle down in Canada only with the permanent residency. This in turn will create a whole new category with 5,000 applications. If this system is continued to follow then it will be very much easier to move to Canada through Express Entry System in 2017.
