Is there a limit set in Canada for immigration?
« on: October 22, 2017, 04:36:10 PM »
In the US, they tend to only accept immigrant applications until they meet their quota for the year and some people are bumped over the following year.

I am wondering if this is the case with Canada? I applied to become a PR quite late here in the year. I am legally able to be here for work but I would like to move here.

There are quotas, but each category has its own caps ie:  2750 for live in care givers each year.   Grandparents have another cap, federal skilled workers etc.  And there are provincial programs that you may qualify for as well, giving you another sub category to qualify under. 

Canada significantly improved back logs and wait times when they introduced the express entry system.  You can create a profile and will be issued an invitation to apply for PR should your points be sufficient enough to draw the ITA.
