Canada sets 2016 Immigration Targets

March 8, 2016


Today, the Government of Canada has released its immigration targets for 2016.


Compared to 2015 immigration levels, the family class target has gone up by nearly 12,000-14,000, mostly in the Spouses, Partners and Children category;   the Refugee and Humanitarian categories has increased by nearly 25,000 (likely due to the Government's commitment to resettle 25,000 Syrian refugees); and the Economic class has reduced by approximately 20,000.  Overall the immigration target for 2016 has increased by approximately 20,000 people.


Express Entry applications would fall under the Federal Economic - High Skilled and a portion of the Provincial Nominee Programs targets listed above.
