Canada has confirmed January was a record month for immigration since the start of the COVID-19 crisis, with 24,665 new permanent resident admissions.

The figure is 2,000 short of the one given by Immigration Minister Marco Mendicino in a February Bloomberg interview, but is still the newest immigrants welcomed since February 2020. Canada first imposed coronavirus travel restrictions in March 2020, causing immigration numbers to plummet.

The January figure is more than double the 10,795 newcomers welcomed in December 2020, and effectively equal to the 24,695 new permanent residents recorded in January 2020, before travel restrictions had been put in place.
