Canada's immigration got off to a robust start in January, with a 28% increase in new permanent residents compared to December, totalling 47,660 arrivals. However, this figure is slightly below the numbers recorded in the same month last year. The projected immigration for 2024 based on January's levels is 571,920, a 21.3% increase from the record-setting 2023 figure of 471,550. Ontario was the top destination, hosting 46% of all immigrants in January, with economic programs contributing 60.5% of newcomers.
