Canada's immigration rate is on track to reach record annual numbers

Immigration to Canada increased significantly in September, with the number of new permanent residents rising by nearly a third compared to August. In September, Canada welcomed almost 30.7% more new permanent residents than in August – a total of 44,495 compared to 34,050. This contrasts with the 22.2% dip seen from July to August. September was the best performance for immigration this year, with the highest number of new permanent residents arriving in a single month since November last year.
