Canada’s Population at 38 Million and Adding 4 Million Immigrants from Now to 2030

Canada’s population is passing 38 million and new immigration plans will push annual immigration over 400,000 per year.

Canada’s immigration plan targeted a level of 361,000 immigrants in 2022 but the high range would allow 390,000 immigrants in 2022.

Canada will release a 2021-2023 immigration plan in October, 2020. Canada has been increasing annual immigration by 10,000-20,000 per year. 2020 saw reduced and delayed immigration because of COVID.

It is likely that there will be a 20,000 immigration level increase in 2023 with a high range of 410,000. Canada will likely continue to edge up annual immigration to 500,000 by 2030.
