Canada releases Immigration Levels Plan 2024-2026

Vimal Sivakumar - 01 November, 2023


Canada has released its Immigration Levels Plan for 2024-2026.

In accordance with the Immigration and Refugees Protection Act (IRPA), Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has released the country's latest Immigration Levels Plan (ILP), as they are mandated to do by November 1 in non-election years.

The Immigration Levels Plan is an annual release that guides how many new permanent residents Canada will welcome in each of the next three years. The ILP breaks down permanent resident targets in each of the country's three immigration classes: economic class; family class; and refugees and humanitarian class.

This past year, Canada set a target of 465,000 new permanent resident admissions.

After breaking its all-time immigration record in 2021 by welcoming over 405,000 immigrants in a single year, Canada welcomed over 437,000 new permanent residents in 2022. Now, Canada has established even higher immigration aspirations for the next three years while we await to see if Canada reaches its 2023 target by year's end. 

As announced at a recent press conference, the Immigration Levels Plan 2024-2026 is as follows. 

Note: These immigration targets may change over time, but the figures below were provided at the time the 2024-2026 ILP was initially released on November 1, 2023.


In 2024, Canada will target the admission of 485,000 new permanent residents across the country.


This target will jump to 500,000 new admissions in 2025. 


In 2026, Canada is aiming to welcome 500,000 immigrants across all eligible permanent resident programs.
