  • Canada Spousal Sponsorship Immigration To See Annual Growth Of More Than 8.2%

    Data from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) reveals that 34,870 new permanent residents to Canada in the first half of this year arrived through spousal sponsorships. Based on that trend, that could mean 69,740 new permanent residents through these programs in 2022.

    That’s 4,965 more immigrants, or almost 7.7 per cent more, than the 64,775 who came through these programs in 2019, the previous record-breaking year. 

    It’s also 5,305 new permanent residents higher than the 64,435 immigrants who came to Canada under these programs last year.

    Spousal sponsorship programs have been growing in popularity for those hoping to rejoin their loved ones in Canada since 2015 prior to the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

    The number of new permanent residents to Canada under spousal sponsorship programs grew by an impressive 22.7 per cent from 46,350 in 2015 to 56,885 the following year. 

    Then, in 2017, overall immigration to Canada faltered somewhat, dropping a tad more than 3.3 per cent from 296,370 to 286,540 new permanent residents.

    Despite that drop in overall immigration, though, spousal sponsorship programs kept chugging along and the number of immigrants to Canada under those programs actually nudged up 2.2 per cent in 2017 to hit 58,135 new permanent residents.

    The following year, in 2018, overall immigration took off again and spousal sponsorships soared 8.2 per cent to 62,885 new permanent residents.

    In 2019, overall immigration grew to a respectable 341,175 new permanent residents to the country and spousal sponsorships again rose by three per cent to hit 64,775.
