Canada has increased the number of immigrants it intends to receive by 2025, and it will amount to about half a million per year.

The government decided on the move in order to compensate for the large shortage of domestic labor.”Canada needs more people,” Immigration Minister Sean Fraser said at a news conference.

More than 900,000 jobs are vacant in many sectors, and unemployment has fallen to an all-time low in recent months, reaching 5.2 percent in September. For this reason, the government intends to grant permanent residence to 465,000 people in 2023, 485,000 in 2024 and 500,000 in 2025.

The Canadian authorities are also announcing changes to the selection of potential immigrants to fill labor shortages in certain areas.

“The goal is that by 2025, more than 60 percent of all immigrants will be economic migrants,” Fraser said
