“Look, this is simple: we need more people.”

With these words, Canadian Immigration Minister Sean Fraser revealed plans to welcome nearly 1.4 million migrants over the next three years.

According to Fraser’s announcement, Canada expects 465,000 new permanent residents in 2023, 485,000 in 2024 and up to 500,000 by 2025.

This means an increase of about 13% compared to the initial targets which the Canadian government had.
