Immigration to Canada is regulated by the two main documents: the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) and the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations (IRPR). In addition, the government adopts the Immigration Levels Plan, which is updated every year. At the moment, Canada plans to admit 401,000 immigrants in 2021, 411,000 newcomers in 2022, and 421,000 new permanent residents in 2023.
There are three main classes of immigrants: Economic Class, Family Class, and Refugees and Protected Persons. Economic Class includes immigrants under all economic immigration programs, including federal programs, provincial programs, regional immigration pilots, and business immigration streams. Family Class programs allow Canadian citizens and permanent residents to sponsor their spouses, common-law partners, children, adopted children, parents, and grandparents. Immigration programs for refugees allow asylum seekers and persons in the need of protection to obtain a new home in Canada.
Economic immigrants constitute up to 60% of the total immigrants to Canada. Sponsored family members of Canadians are 35% of the annual immigration. Finally, refugees, protected persons, and humanitarian and compassionate grounds immigrants are about 5% of the total. Schindler Visa Services is mostly focused on Economic immigration, however, we also handle family sponsorship cases.
