Pandemic's Impact in Canada

Pandemic's Impact on Immigration in Canada

The Impact

Canada is a country that depends on immigration for its economic survival. The pandemic has caused setbacks for the Canadian Government. A study was conducted by the Conference Board of Canada calculated the impact of the pandemic with regards to immigrant admissions into Canada and its effects.

In the first six months into the pandemic, it had put a dent in the immigration invitation process causing a major downfall of admissions. Between March and December of 2020, immigration went down by 56 percent when compared to 2019.

The refugee class admissions went down by 72 percent and the family class admissions went down by 63 percent during the inception of the pandemic. At the end of 2020, the admissions of different immigration classes were close to pre-pandemic levels.

The Conference Board of Canada are optimistic based on the most recent express entry draws where the CRS scores were low suggesting an upward trend in immigration by inviting  immigrants with Canadian work experience in 2021.

Since 2019 the government was increasing the intake of Canadian Experience Class (CEC) and Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) under Express Entry by focussing more on that but after the pandemic, by mid of 2020 Canada started considering all the classes including Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) and Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP).

The good news is the invitation for temporary residents with work experience who are currently in Canada who would be given first priority for immigration. The CEC class and the PNP candidates will not be affected by the various travel restrictions caused by the pandemic.

Ontario, British Columbia, and Quebec were the least affected but the rest of the provinces took a hit due to the low immigration caused by the pandemic.

Recommendations of the Conference Board of Canada

By the studying the impact of immigration on the economy the Conference Board of Canada has come with these recommendations:

  • By increasing the immigration in the next four years Canada’s GDP can see a potential growth by 44 percent
  • Increasing public revenues by CAD $50 billion
  • Increasing the ratio of currently employed to retirees by 15 percent to compensate for the aging population
  • Increasing the support system for newcomers by developing new platforms for immigrants with job offers
  • More investments in settlement services
  • Increasing family class admissions for a larger participation in the labour force
