IRCC data indicates a decrease in spousal sponsorship immigration

According to recent data from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), there has been a significant drop in spousal sponsorship immigration. The data reveals a 12.8% drop in March, marking a second consecutive month of decline. After a 21.7% decrease in February, the immigration program saw only 4,810 spouses and common-law partners become new permanent residents in March, compared to 5,515 in February. The first quarter of the year saw a total of 17,235 new permanent residents under this program, a 31.6% decrease compared to the same period last year. If this current trend continues, it is projected that there will only be about 69,300 new permanent residents through this program by the end of the year, a 7.9% decrease compared to the previous year.
