IRCC PR Application Statistics

Recommended Posts

MaryJane

After a while, it's no longer exciting to watch the EE scores going up and down (or staying the same really). We need some other information to get our teeth into. ;)

The open data on IRCC information offers some more insight. Here's some (maybe not that fun yet still) interesting fact:

PR visas issued in 2015 for South Africans = 958 out of 295,700 (total PRs issued in the world) 
PR visas issued from Jan to Mar 2016 for South Africans = 320 out of 89,712

***See, Pretoria is doing something*** :)

But where do most South Africans choose to settle?

PR admissions into provinces and territories in 2015:

South Africans seem to like Alberta (AB) a lot --- 265 of them went there. Second place is British Columbia (BC) with 245, and Ontario (ON) a close third with 240 PRs.

The rest had the following:
Manitoba (MB) - 30; Newfoundland and Labrador (NL) - 10; Nova Scotia (NS) - 15; PEI - 5; Quebec (QC) - 25; Saskatchewan (SK) - 120; New Brunswick (NB), Northwest Territories (NT), Nunavut (NT), Yukon (YT) - all had 0

For 2016 Q1 so far:
AB - 105; BC - 35; MB - 10; ON - 70; SK - 45

If you wanna do some other stats, here's where you can find the rest of the open data information - http://open.canada.ca/data/en/dataset/0186868b-a04d-4a0e-962e-bdfbac51bfb3 The reports are updated regularly.

Is this just because there are fewer SAfricans wanting to go to Canada? (0.3% of visas is very low)

Or do you think there are other reasons for less of us getting in?

I think more South Africans went to Aus & NZ than Canada. Canada is becoming more popular though, we've heard of a few people here in Pmb that is in the process of getting their ducks in a row to hop into the EE pool.

Hmmm - of the 5 issued to PEI in 2015, myself, @Vizsla and Sprog were 3  - wonder who the other 2 are??

There are currently 43 465 South Africans in Canada according to the latest census
