Canada will aim to welcome 1.2 million immigrants from 2021 to 2023 to make up for a shortfall this year blamed on the pandemic, the immigration minister announced Friday.

The plan calls for accepting 401,000 new permanent residents in 2021, 411,000 in 2022, and 421,000 in 2023 — an immigration rate equal to about one percent of Canada’s population.
