Indians become major Spousal Immigration applicants 2021

Indian partners have been dominating Canada's immigration figures for partner/spousal sponsorships in recent years. This wasn't always the case, according to data from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), more spouses from Philippines became permanent residents in Canada in 2015 before. Every year afterwards, Indians have topped the results, notably in 2021, when 10,705 Indian common-law-partners became permanent residents counting for 17% of the total of 64,340.

Since last year, spousal applicants from the Philippines, the United States, and China made up significant groups of partner permanent residents, but Indians have been taking over this immigration category as pr recent numbers. Six years later, the numbers show a different scenario as Philippines account for 4,370 of the 46,360 arrivals, or 9.4% of the total.

In 2022, Canada's current Immigration Levels Plan aims to bring 80,000 immigrants into the country through PR pathways from spouses, partners, and children. This figure represents the majority of the 1,05,000 Family Class immigrants expected to arrive this year, with the Parents and Grandparents Program bringing in the rest. It demonstrates that there are numerous choices available to Canadian citizens and permanent residents who wish to bring their families to the country.
