On November 1, 2022, Sean Fraser, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) released the 2023-2025 Immigration Levels Plan. The new plan focuses on economic growth, intending to increase admissions in the economic class by 2025. Canada also will admit more immigrants through the Atlantic Immigration Program and the Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot to address local labour market needs. Other new plan highlights are increasing the share of Francophone immigration outside Quebec, reuniting more families faster, and providing a haven to refugees and asylum seekers
