October to bring in major changes in Canada Immigration

The immigration system in Canada will change as a result of two significant occurrences this month. The first is a fresh mandate letter that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will send to Minister of Immigration Marco Mendicino. The second document outlines Canada’s revised permanent residence targets for the following three years and is titled Immigration Levels Plan 2021–2023.

New immigration mandate letter

Minister Mendicino will get a letter from Trudeau that will serve as guidance for his attempts to oversee the operations of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

The prime minister will release his second immigration mandate letter in less than a year, which will be an uncommon occurrence.

Trudeau will therefore now specify new immigration goals for Mendicino and the IRCC to pursue.

If last years’ experience is any guide, the new immigration mandate letter might be made available to the public by early October.

Last year, the mandate letters were made public on December 13 after the Speech from the Throne on December 5th.

Mendicino’s upcoming mandate letter is likely to place a strong emphasis on the coronavirus.

In particular, the government will probably give a general summary of how it plans to modify Canadian immigration law and how it will handle new applications in the wake of the pandemic

Canada Immigration Level Plan 2021-2023

➡ Canada will announce its Immigration Levels Plan 2021-2023 on October 30th. IRPA states that the immigration minister is to declare the arrangement by November first every year when Parliament is sitting.

 💡 However, IRPA also stipulates that the announcement can be delayed in election years, as was the case in 2019 when Canadians went to the polls.

 ➡ Ian Mendicino will follow the 2020-2022 levels plan announcement he made in March of this year with a similar announcement that will likely come by Friday October 30th.

 💡 IRPA is the main law that guides Canada’s immigration system. This commitment is being demonstrated by the ongoing Express Entry draws that IRCC is conducting that are seeing record levels of individuals receive invitations to apply for permanent residence.

 ➡ We will have more clarification regarding how quickly the Canadian government believes the immigration system can return to normal once the new mandate letter and the 2021–2023 Immigration Levels Plan statement are combined.
