$24.00 plus tax (Refund Policy)

Canada admitted about 252 000 permanent migrants in 2009, a 2% increase over 2008. As in previous years, the top sending countries were China (12%), the Philippines (11%) and India (10%). While the share of permanent immigrants from the Philippines and India increased by 15% and 6%, respectively, inflows from China decreased marginally by 1%. In 2009, the bulk of permanent migrants (61%) entered Canada for family‐related reasons. Labour migrants (i.e. economic principal applicants) accounted for one‐quarter of long‐term inflows and one out of eight permanent migrants acquired a residence permit on humanitarian grounds.
