Quebec Immigration Level Might Reach 52,500 By 2022
Posted On: Sat, Jun 22 2019
This would translate to an increase of 10,500 newcomers to Quebec from this year’s maximum of 42,000 and mark an approximate return to the immigration level that was in place before the election of the province’s new Coalition Avenir Quebec (CAQ) government in October 2018. Quebec's immigration levels between 2015 and 2018 were 53,084, 52,388 and 51,118 respectively.
The CAQ introduced a temporary reduction to its immigration levels late last year as part of an election promise to address concerns that newcomers are not integrating into the majority French Speaking province.
The proposals published Friday by the province’s immigration ministry (MIDI) said the reduction was necessary in order to revamp the province’s integration programs and services. The government is aiming to achieve an immigration level of between 49,500 and 52,500 by 2022.
A total of 65 percent would be selected through Quebec’s economic class-immigration programs compared to 59 percent this year.
