Since 2015 figures, Canada has seen a four-fold increase in the number of applications for temporary resident visas issued to students, visitors as well as workers, a situation which placed a higher demand on the Immigration Department. According to the annual plan released by Canada Immigration Department, more than 5.7 million temporary visas were issued from March 2017 to March 2018 representing a huge jump from the 1.3 million issued two years before. Federal officials say government's efforts to increase international tourism in Canada are responsible for the surge seeing in the number of migrants applying for temporary visas. A spokesman for Canada immigration minister said Minister Ahmed Hussen promotes tourism and people-to-people ties in Canada on each of his travels abroad. He said Canada pays much attention to tourism and promotes it through several agencies in the country, including 'apply early' campaign at Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). The number (1.3 million) of visitors visas issued in 2018 was 45% higher than the 2015's according to figures released.
