In the article “Canada’s immigration programs in 2021”, we will examine this issue. Canada’s 2021 immigration programs faced significant challenges and delays as Canada adapted its policies in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. For many candidates within Canada, 2021 brought new immigration programs and policies designed to help them stay, but for many candidates outside of Canada, Canada’s Covid-19 policies pushed their case out of consideration. With 2021 coming to an end in just a few days, it’s time to focus on what to expect for Canadian immigration in 2022.
Canada hopes to welcome 411,000 new immigrants in 2022. While this is not normally a problem for Canada due to the large number of applicants from around the world, the country has struggled to process applications in a timely manner over the past year, leaving a backlog of 1.8 million applications to be processed.
