The IRCC has announced their plans for 2017. In the next nine months, the Federal Government aims to attract approximately 300,000 new permanent residents. The majority of the permanent residents will be selected from the economic programmes.
Further, the IRCC will approve at least 172,500 candidates and accompanying family members under the different economic schemes, such as Quebec Skilled Worker, Express Entry and the PNPs.
