Ontario province in Canada is now seeking extra skilled immigrants in 2019. This is to cater to the increasing demand for skilled workers in the province. At the national level, the immigration intake for 2019 has been set at 330,000 by Canada. This is an increase of around 7% from the target of 2018 at 310,000.
The multi-year immigration levels plan was unveiled by the federal government at the end of 2018 October. This aims to enhance the target of total admissions to Canada through its diverse economic, refugee, and family programs. The increase is projected to be 13% during 2018 and 2021. It will increase to 350,000 from 310,000.
Immigration is the key propellant of the growth of labor force and population in Canada. Several provinces in Canada are actively working to attract extra skilled immigrants. This is for addressing the increasing demand for workers, as quoted by the CIC News.
