A National Foundation for American Policy (NFAP) analysis of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada data shows that the number of Indians who became permanent residents of Canada increased from 32,828 in 2013 to 118,095 in 2022, an increase of 260%. 

As per the report, India was the second-largest source of permanent residents after China (118,095), Afghanistan (23,735), Nigeria (22,085), and the Philippines (31,815) in 2022. (22,070). Canada received more Filipino immigrants in 2014 than Indian immigrants.

Indian immigration to Canada stayed between 27,000 and 36,000 between 2004 and 2012. The number of Indian immigrants to Canada increased from 32,828 to 38,364 in 2013, and remained stable in 2015 (39,340) and 2016 (39,340). (39,710).

51,590 more Indians immigrated to Canada in 2017 than in 2016, 69,985 more in 2018, and 85,590 more in 2019. As a result of processing and travel delays brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic, the figure was 42,870 in 2020. 

But in 2021, as processing problems eased and the Canadian immigration authorities gave greater weight to work experience in Canada, Indians gaining permanent residence increased to 127,940 in 2021 and settled at 118,095 in 2022.

Number of Indians Immigrating To Canada Tripled

Since 2013, the number of Indians moving to Canada has more than tripled. The scale of the increase is not the result of a steady rise in international students and employment-based immigrants, but rather is what one would anticipate to see in a refugee situation. 

According to the data, India’s decision to immigrate to Canada has been significantly influenced by the United States’ restrictive immigration policies, particularly those implemented under the Trump administration.

The election of Donald Trump and his opposition to immigration—including that of highly educated professionals—as well as Canadian government initiatives to recruit and retain talent from abroad, coincided with a significant rise in the number of Indians moving to Canada.
