Canada Shelter wants to make sure that people should not use illegal ways to come to Canada by risking their lives, reputation and money.


For the first time in decades, Canada is on track to welcome more than 300,000 new permanent residents to Canada in one year, according to the Liberal government’s 2016 immigration targets tabled on March 8, 2016 Immigration Minister John McCallum says Canada plans to accept between 280,000 and 305,000 – with a target of 300,000 – new permanent residents this year, an increase from the updated target of 279,200 for 2015.

If the government reaches its target, it will mark the first time Canada has resettled more than 300,000 new permanent residents in one year since 1913. As promised during last year’s election campaign, the Liberals will increase the number of spaces available for refugees and family reunification arrivals this year.
