Immigration in Canada is on a high rise and Century Initiative wants that the population in Canada should go up to 100 million by 2100. IRCC has revealed in a report that Canada has welcomed 274,980 new permanent residents in the first seven months of 2022.
If this will continue, Canada may welcome 471,394 by the end of 2022. Last year, the number of immigrants was 406,025.
According to the immigration plan 2022-2024, Canada will invite many immigrants and the number is shown in the table below:

Sean Fraser, the Immigration Minister, has plans to help the undocumented workers to get Canada PR. A discussion is being done to introduce pilot programs for the existing undocumented workers who are making a contribution to the Canadian economy.
Canada introduced a TR to PR pathway in 2021 in which 90,000 applications were accepted. Whereas in 2022, Sean Fraser is planning a new five pillar strategy for converting temporary visas to permanent visas.
