Working in Canada

Immigration and settlement

Canada welcomes newcomers with technical skills and offers "Expressed Entry" for qualified applicants to get you here sooner and settlement services to support your integration into the workforce once you arrive.  

Every year targets are set the number of immigrants allowed into the country in different immigration categories. In 2021, Canada's target is 401,000 immigrants. Of these, about 60% fall under the economic category, which will help the Canadian economy recover from COVID-19.

Looking ahead, Canada plans to welcome 411,000 immigrants in 2022 and 421,000 immigrants in 2023. This works out to almost 1% of our population.
