A lot of Canada Immigration aspirants are looking forward to moving to the country in the year 2020. However, there is a need to be aware of the latest changes to be able to benefit gravely from the changes introduced in the policies and programs of immigration.
The new minister of Canada immigration, regulatory body Immigration Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), Marco Mendicino, is expected to come out with the formal plan and Annual report in March. He will clarify the immigration motives and prospects of Immigrants in the coming years. As per the latest update, according to Canada immigration Plan, 2020 -2022, the target immigration for the year 2020 stands at 3,41,000 newcomers, and in 2021 the immigration target stands at 3,50,000. Based on the current trends, a modest increase in expected where the target will be at 3,60,000.
Let’s go through the changes that are expected in the year 2020
👉 Revisions in Parents and Grandparents Program
The intake process for Parents and Grandparents Program will be officially announced in April 2020. the annual target is expected to be set at 21,000 annually. It is also expected that there will be an introduction of a new program or stream in this category as there has been a lot of backlog of pending cases in the Parents and Grandparents Program in the past.
👉 Canada will commit to regionalization
There will be an increase of 11 % in Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) admissions in 2020 as compared to 2019 and additional people i.e., 67,800 immigrants will be selected through principal applicants, spouses, and dependents category. For this, the provinces and territories will seek higher admissions through PNP, and they are also planning to move beyond cities for admissions. To promote economic development, settlement in smaller cities and rural areas will be higher. This broader distribution of Immigrants all over Canada is called Regionalization.
The examples of this have been seen in the past with two recent programs –
There is an expected launch of the new program, the Municipal Nominee program, and it is expected to be very similar to the Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot (RNIP). Here, the Municipalities will be able to recruit as per the labor needs.
👉 Is fee Waiver on the cards?
At present, the cost of becoming a citizen in Canada is CAD 630 per adult, which is arguably high for individual families of low-income groups specifically. In the coming year, there is a chance that there will not be a change in the fee for somedays, and while people wait for the changes to be implemented, the Citizenship rates can witness a rise of up to 40 percent by 2024.
