The ongoing Covid-19 has had a major impact not only on Canada’s immigration programs but also on the rest of the world. Candidates who were one step closer to the Canadian Dream have been affected by many disruptions all at once. Language testing, biometrics, credential services coupled with government services have come to halt. Now that we are about to say goodbye to 2020, immigration professionals have been working around the clock to tweak programmings and policy to serve in the best interest of all the immigrants who wish to migrate to Canada Soon.


4 things you need to know about Canada Immigration in 2021 


The Canadian Immigration Minister Marco Mendicino has been extremely cooperative during the pandemic. Immigrants providing support to the economy has always been the priority of the Canadian Government. The good thing is that they have extended the time limit to submit the immigrant’s application and documents as we speak now.


  • Famil Class Expanded: Canada’s family class immigration intake is about to see a little growth over the next two years. The Federal Government seems to be happy with the current family class immigration. The IRCC registered consultants ran a pilot called open work permit which gives an open work permit to partners and spouses of permanent residents and Canadian citizens who are waiting in queue for the sponsorship application for their spousal to be processed. Given how beneficial this pilot program is to the economy and Canadian families, we should expect it to be renewed. The Parents and Grandparents Program that is PGP has been delayed indefinitely by IRCC because of the onset of coronavirus pandemic. IRCC is committed to announcing further details about the launch of the program by the end of 2020. Since elders are quite vulnerable to covid-19, IRCC is identifying how it can welcome individuals in a way that protects their health.


  • Immigration Level Plans for 2021-2023: The biggest story arguably in the next 6 months will be the announcement of the Canada immigration in Ahmedabad levels plan for 2021-2023 by the minister Marco Mendicino. This is going to be one of the most anticipated announcements since the immigration plan was tabled by the government in 2017. By November 1st, Marco Mendicino will tell the public to what extent COVID-19 has impacted Canada’s short-term and medium-term goals. Everyone knows how immigration is critical to Canada’s society and economy in general, but at the same time, the current pandemic has created quite a certainty. However, Covid-19 has not drastically impacted Canada’s immigration plans. So it’s highly likely that the immigration levels will remain high in 2021 and the following years. 


  • Federal Skilled Workers Program: The main pathway for express entry aspirants, the federal skilled worker program helps applicants acquire permanent residence. Now that we are living in the new normal, the draws made for express entry are primarily focusing on the Canadian experience class (CEC) and provincial nominee program (PNP) candidates. The preferred choice at the moment is the candidates within Canada since they are less likely to run into coronavirus disruptions than the candidates who are overseas. Therefore it wants to invite you to apply (ITA) to candidates within Canada. And it is reasonable to only expect that by the time shortlisted candidates submit their Canada PR applications which IRRC process, we’ll be in 2021. By the turn of the year, we can ease expect ease of regulations at the border.  


  • Travel Curtailment: When Canada will lift its travel restrictions is the most common question being put up as the world is fighting its way through the pandemic. The most sensible answer at this stage is no one knows. Containing Covid-19 has not been easy as it sounded in the beginning. Once the pandemic is under control, countries whether Canada or the rest of the world will soon begin to exempt groups and individuals and step by step lift the restrictions altogether. And the biggest question mark in the minds of students and parents is whether Canada will accommodate students who are not in Canada in time for the 2020 fall semester. Though the quarantine process has been kickstarted by many universities, under current travel regulations, international students who did not procure a valid study permit before march 2020 wouldn’t be able to arrive in Canada. More exemptions are likely to be seen in the upcoming summer and IRCC ( Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada) has said that it will foresee study permits to the best of its ability. 



We are living in unthinkable times. However, we should all stay cheerful as we are receiving positive news from the Canadian Government, particularly from the Canadian immigration minister. Keep in mind these 4 points mentioned above and always plan because for the next six months we can see many exemptions being lifted and life returning to a little more norman than it is now.
