Canada set a new record by welcoming 471,550 permanent residents in 2023

In 2023, Canada set a new immigration record, welcoming 471,550 new permanent residents. This number exceeded the target of 465,000 set out in Ottawa's Immigration Levels Plan for 2023-2025. The plan outlines goals of 485,000 new residents in 2024, 500,000 in 2025, and a steady number of 500,000 in 2026. The initiative stimulates economic growth, promotes family reunification, and responds to humanitarian crises. Overall, the plan anticipates 1.485 million immigrants over three years. In December 2023 alone, immigration surged by 26.8%, with 37,125 new residents. Ontario was the preferred destination for newcomers, accepting 43.8% of all immigrants.
