Canada put $440 million for immigration increase.

Canada put $440 million for immigration increase that will cover a three-year plan for 2018 to 2020. The plan calls for a gradual increase in immigration levels over that time, from an overall admissions target of 310,000 in 2018 to 340,000 in 2020.

Hussen said that the number of skilled immigrants they select through our Express Entry system will grow over this time frame, which will mean more highly skilled talent for labour market.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has set a target of 242,100 new admissions between 2018 and 2020 through the three economic immigration programs managed through the Express Entry system — the Federal Skilled Worker Class, the Federal Skilled Trades Class and the Canadian Experience Class.
