Reading Time: 1 minute

To address the issue of a labor shortage, the Canadian government has proposed a plan to accept 1,450,000 migrants between 2023 and 2025.

The 2023–2025 immigration strategy was unveiled on Wednesday by Canada’s Minister of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship, Sean Fraser.

The plan supports immigration as a tactic to assist firms in finding employees and to draw in the expertise necessary in certain areas.

The Canadian economy is experiencing severe labor shortages, according to the immigration ministry, which is creating anxiety for both employers and employees.

The immigration plan is supposed to help Canada deal with the social and economic problems it will encounter in the coming years.

In 2023, 2024, and 2025, the Canadian government plans to welcome 465,000, 485,000, and 500,000 permanent residents, respectively.

Canada accepted more than 405,000 immigrants in 2021, the highest ever in a single year.

Nearly all of Canada’s increase in labor force growth and, by 2032, all of Canada’s population growth, are attributed to immigration.Nigerians frequently relocate to Canada for employment and educational possibilities.
