New Plans to Modernize Canada’s Immigration System

New Plans to Modernize Canada’s Immigration System

Canada Immigration Minister Marco Mendicino announced his plans to modernize Canada's immigration system and improve the country's efforts to recruit, welcome and integrate newcomers to Canada. Canada's Immigration Levels Plan 2021-2023 calls to welcome at least 401,000 immigrants per year. Immigration is a key factor in Canada's recovery from the pandemic.

In April, Canada proposed Budget 2021: A Recovery Plan for Jobs, Growth, and Resilience with budget investments that will encourage immigration:

"Immigrants create jobs, help to drive economic growth and will play an important part in Canada’s recovery."

In his speech on May 12, Mendicino said that despite COVID-19, IRCC has kept immigration doors open up to allow for essential workers and travelers to enter Canada. Canada's plans to modernize the immigration system include:

  • $430 million investment over 5 years to modernize its information technology infrastructure, including replacing immigration's Global Case Management System (GCMS)
  • Replace Canada's paper-based immigration system with an online system so applicants can submit their applications online and track IRCC’s progress
  • Process applications more quickly
  • Inspire confidence in the IRCC
  • Canada launched 6 new permanent resident streams on May 6
  • Transition immigrants already living and working in Canada to become permanent residents
  • Support racialized newcomer women
  • Steamline Express Entry
  • Propose amendments to the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act to recruit candidates that "meet Canada’s labour market needs from among the pool of candidates who wish to become permanent residents through the Express Entry system."
“Canada’s immigration system is critical to supporting our economic recovery and building a stronger Canada for all. We want to make it easier for newcomers to come to Canada, and our immigration system needs to reflect that. Budget 2021 investments will help create a new online platform that is secure, user-friendly, and makes it easier than ever for the best and brightest from around the world to choose Canada. They will also support newcomers’ access to resources that will help them adjust to their lives in Canada and integrate more quickly. As such, Canada can better compete with its international partners and take advantage of the growth in global travel, when it is safe to do so.”

‒ The Honourable Marco E. L. Mendicino, P.C., M.P.,
Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship
