Canada continues welcoming immigrants under the Parents and Grandparents Program

Canada saw a 27.2% increase in new arrivals under the Parents and Grandparents Program (PGP) in October, bouncing back from an eight-month low in August, according to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada. There were 2,525 new permanent residents in October, up from 1,975 in September and the August low of 1,515. Despite a drop from 3,760 in May to 1,515 in August, current trends suggest the PGP could welcome 29,910 new residents by year's end, a 9.7% increase from last year. So far this year, the PGP has admitted 24,925 new residents, a three percent increase from the same period the previous year. Ontario saw the highest number of PGP arrivals, with 11,805 parents and grandparents settling there.
