Immigrants in Canada

Immigrants in Canada play an important role in the market and in growing the Canadian economy now and in the future by also ensuring Canada has the skills necessary to meet key objectives such as supporting sustainability initiatives to transition to a green, and digital economy.

Welcoming newcomers also involves providing the resources and services such as housing and healthcare that both newcomers and Canadians need.

Communication, teamwork, coordination, and partnerships are crucial in order to welcome newcomers. Accordingly, in order to support integrated coordination and planning across levels of government as well as with partners and stakeholders, IRCC has made early steps to build a whole-of-government and whole-of-society approach to admissions planning.
