Become A Canadian - Relocating to Canada

Non-Permanent Residents Relocating to Canada Over 500,000

The population of non-permanent residents (NPRs) in Canada grew by more than half a million in a single year. According to Become A Canadian, this growth represents the steepest single-year rise in the last 50 years.

Data released by Statistics Canada (StatCan) showed that the total number of NPRs rose from 1.7 million in 2022 to 2.5 million as of October 2023. From the data, Become A Canadian could confirm that the population growth of NPRs in Canada tripled between the summers of 2018 and 2019.

The Canadian population growth of non-permanent residents in Canada rose by nearly 700,000 between the summers of 2022 and 2023.

Sociology experts commented that the increase in immigration is a result of the federal government’s embrace of increasing migration because of the economic benefits it offers.

Impacts of Non-permanent Immigrants on Canada's Economy

Become A Canadian could establish that compared to the rest of the Canadian population, including permanent immigrants and Canadian citizens, the average NPR is significantly younger, more educated and has higher chances of participating in the labor force.

More so, some of the fastest growth among the NPR populations has been among work permit holders, although several study permit holders have also recently flocked to Canada.

The number of NPRs with work permits has grown to 1.6 million nationwide, compared to the rough amount of 830,000 in late 2021. 

The significant growth of NPRs comes amid what Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) described as record-breaking numbers for new permits, cumulating into 1.5 million for workers and one million for students processed, finalized, or extended.
