Canada’s immigration objectives 2023

The mid-term meeting of the Forum of Ministers Responsible for Immigration (FMRI) took place in Halifax, with federal, provincial, and territorial ministers discussing Canada’s immigration priorities.

The ministers spoke positively about immigration in Canada and have endorsed a new multi-year Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) and Atlantic Immigration Program (AIP) plan, which will help provinces and territories to outline their immigrant admissions and settlement in advance. The plan includes a 44% growth in PNP allocations for 2023.

The ministers also looked for ways to enhance the process of obtaining an Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) or foreign credential recognition. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has the final say in how many candidates are invited to apply for PR under a PNP, but PT ministers advocated for higher allocations due to labour shortages and a desire to have more control over the economic immigrants who settle and their ability to close their labour force gaps. PNP admissions will continue to outpace federal high skilled (Express Entry) admissions into 2025.
