During the first eight months of 2021, nearly 9,500 Nigerians had become permanent residents of Canada, more than the 9,125 Filipinos who had done so over the same time period. Nigerians made up 4.3 percent of this year’s total permanent resident arrivals. Meanwhile, Filipinos had accounted for 3.4 percent of the total permanent resident arrivals in 2020 and 2.5 percent in 2019. By contrast, citizens of the Philippines also made up about 4.1 percent of this year’s permanent resident admissions, whereas they accounted for 6 percent in 2020 and 5.7 percent in 2019. The figures are dominated by Indian citizens.

Here is how the current immigration changes have affected the new permanent resident arrivals in the country:

1 – The Philippines has set up an embassy in Canada to help the thousands of Filipinos immigrate to the country.

After the Canadian government’s latest changes, the Philippine Department of Foreign Affairs has put in place an embassy in Toronto to help the thousands of Filipinos migrate to the country.

2 – Afghanistan refugees are being prioritized

In the most recent changes to the Canadian immigration system, refugees from Afghanistan have been given priority for PR applications. The new Canadian immigration system prioritizes the refugees from the country, and one of the main reasons is that they receive full financial support from the federal government.

3 – The global pandemic has also caused immigration numbers to shift

The global pandemic has also contributed to the shift in the number of permanent residents arriving in Canada this year. The global pandemic has resulted in a sharp decrease in the arrival of new immigrants to the country. This is because the months of October, November, and December are the main months for global health pandemics to take place.

4 – Many immigrants choose to arrive as students

Many new migrants choose to arrive as students in Canada. For example, most of the new immigrants arriving in Canada arrive as international students. As of April this year, there were about 125,000 foreign students enrolled in Canadian institutions. Of this total, about 47,000 were from China and about 23,000 from India. In addition, about 49,000 new immigrants arrived in Canada in 2019 as international students.

Two-Step Immigration To Canada

Statistics show a significant increase in new permanent residents from the TFWP and IMP, as well as students studying at Canadian universities and colleges.

Two-step immigration to Canada is an approved immigration route that enables the Immigrants to move to Canada and apply for permanent residence. It is an immigration route for highly skilled workers who can apply for PR directly without first applying for temporary status.

For many years, Canadian immigration has been a two-step process. In the first step, the applicant has to get a job offer from a Canadian employer. In the next step, after getting the Canadian job offer, the applicant has to apply for a work permit from the IRCC. This will allow the applicant to enter Canada to work for a Canadian employer. Due to the Canadian government’s recent changes to the Canadian immigration system, the applicant will only need a job offer from an employer in Canada to be able to enter Canada.
