Immigration to Canada rose to its highest level since June last year in November but is still woefully below the healthy flow of immigrants seen before the COVID-19 global pandemic.

In November, 15,275 new permanent residents came to Canada, up 1.6 per cent from the 15,030 in October.

The most recent immigration figures also show November was a stronger month for Canadian immigration than any other since June when 19,160 immigrants came to Canada.

That bump up in immigration during the summer was partly a correction for the trickle in new arrivals in April when only 4,130 people immigrated here.

Despite the latest upwards nudge in the flow of immigration, the number of newcomers to Canada remains very low compared to pre-pandemic levels.

During the previous year, 25,080 immigrated to Canada in November, which means immigration levels were still off by slightly more than 39 per cent in November 2020.
