Canada New Immigration Levels Plan 2022-2024


The Canada Immigration Levels Plan 2022-2024 is out now. There’s a higher target and an apparent drive to catapult immigration to new heights in the latest plan for Canada Immigration.

The overall target for immigrants has been set as follows:

  • 431,645 newcomers in 2022
  • 447,055 newcomers in 2023
  • 451,000 newcomers in 2024

Here’s how the distribution of target numbers has been made in the plan:

Immigrant Category 2022 target 2023 target 2024 target
Economic 241,850 253,000 267,750
Family 105,000 109,500 113,000
Refugees & other protected persons 76,545 74,055 62,500
Humanitarian & other 8,250 10,500 7,750
Grand total 431,645 447,055 451,000

The Canadian government has defined increasing Francophone immigration as an objective. The aim is to achieve a target of 4.4% French-speaking immigrants immigrating outside Quebec by 2023. This range indicates the number of admissions within the federal levels plan that would be necessary to meet that target in 2023. This is based on the overall admission ranges outside of Quebec. Once Quebec decides on its levels plan for 2023, this range may need updating.


Here are some other facts related to the Canada Immigration Levels Plan 2022-2024:

  • Around 56% of newcomers will immigrate to Canada under pathways of economic class immigration.
  • In the economic class, Canada PNP will be the main program for Canada immigration. IRCC is aiming to bring in 83,500 newcomers through Canada PNP in 2022.
  • IRCC is planning to gradually go back to conducting normal Express Entry draws by 2024 to conduct immigration. That year, IRCC is aiming at 115,500 newcomers through Canada Express Entry.
