Just like in any other government in the world, the impact of COVID-19 has been felt across different sectors in the Canadian government. One area affected is the immigration department that saw a decline is the number of immigrants entering the country. The month of April admitted only 4,100 permanent residents to Canada. In a regular month, Canada often accepts between 25,000 – 35,000 immigrants seeking for the much needed permanent residence status.

The figure represents the only group that completed the application process due to the disruption caused by the global pandemic. The Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) data show that March 2020 saw a decline of 26 percent. April, on the other hand, was the worst hit with a drop of 78 percent.

The latest IRCC provides a clear picture of the coronavirus pandemic that has devastated Canada’s immigrant impact in 2020. Since March, the country immigration levels declined, and April reduced further. It is anticipated the drop could be witnessed in May. The government, however, remains determined to welcome more foreign workers into the country.
