Canada has plans to welcome a large number of permanent residents through family sponsorship programs. According to the latest data provided by IRCC, 41,625 permanent residents were invited in Canada in May 2022. It is claimed that if such speed will prevail, the number of immigrants can go up to 99,900.
This will break the previous record of 91,300 that was made in 2019. In 2015, the number of candidates invited through these programs was 65,485. In 2016, the number grew to 78,005. In 2017, the number again increased and went up to 82,465.
In 2018, the rate of welcoming immigrants through these programs slowed down but still, 85,165 permanent residents were invited. In 2019, the rate again grew but then the pandemic hit. In 2020, the immigration dropped by 46 percent and only 49,310 permanent residents were invited
