MUMBAI: Indian citizens bagged 40,275 invites to apply for permanent residence in Canada, under the ‘Express Entry’ route. This is 47% of the total invites (85,300) which were issued to Express Entry candidates during 2019, by the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) -the immigration arm of the Canadian government. A fair share of these Indians includes those already working in Canada or migrating from US - owing to Trump administration’s increasing protectionist immigration regime.


As per the newly released report - the overall 2019 statistic of 85,300 is a slight decline from the 89,800 invitations issued in 2018. Likewise, the number of invites to Indian citizens declined by 3.36% from the earlier year’s statistic of 41,678. Indians, continued to top the charts, in all the three years, captured in this report.
