IRCC’s online survey on immigration levels

Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada

Every year, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) engages with a wide range of stakeholders and partners from across the country to help us shape Canada’s next Immigration Levels Plan, which will be announced in the fall of 2024.

Traditionally, the Immigration Levels Plan has included a projection of how many permanent residents would be admitted to Canada in a given year, and set targets for overall admissions per immigration category. It built on ongoing work to strengthen our immigration system and spread the benefits of immigration to communities across the country.

In 2024, we are expanding the scope of the Immigration Levels Plan by including temporary resident arrivals in addition to permanent residents in an effort to better align our immigration system with the needs of the country. 

As such, we’re seeking your views on the balance among different categories and programs, and how immigration can best support Canada from multiple perspectives.

If you’re interested in providing feedback to help inform the next 2025–2027 Immigration Levels Plan and the department’s ongoing work, we invite you to read more about this year’s engagement initiative and complete our online survey using the link below. Please use the unique link provided in this message to answer our survey questions, and don’t hesitate to share our website page with your networks if you wish to invite others to participate.
