Historically high number comes as global pandemic brings challenges to immigration The Liberal government plans to bring in more than 1.2 million immigrants over the next three years, despite hurdles created by the global pandemic. Immigration Minister Marco Mendicino unveiled what he called an “ambitious” three-year immigration plan today that set targets for bringing skilled workers, family members and refugees into Canada. Canada aims to bring 401,000 new permanent residents in 2021, 411,000 in 2022 and 421,000 in 2023. The numbers — which represent an increase of about 50,000 for each year — aim to compensate for the shortfall this year due to the pandemic and represent about one per cent of Canada’s population.
