Nearly 45,000 permanent residents arrived in Canada in 2022 coming from the Arab World, according to data received from the Immigration Refugees Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

A total of 44900 permanent residents were admitted to Canada from the Arabic-speaking part of the Middle East and North Africa in 2022, according to IRCC data received by Media in Toronto.

Based on country of citizenship, the 44900 Arab newcomers are coming from Egypt (2880), Libya (580), Tunisia (4670), Algeria (6175), Morocco (6390), Sudan (1575), Mauritania (80), Jordan (1140), Lebanon (4085), Palestine (865), Iraq (3470), Syria (8500), Somalia (2930), Republic of Djibouti (320), Comoros (20), UAE (25), Kuwait (40), Saudi Arabia (295), Qatar (5), Bahrain (20), Yemen (820), Oman (15).

In total, the number will increase if you add to these numbers those coming from the Middle East region not from the Arab countries: Turkey (2415), Cyprus (10), Iran (11,105), and Israel (885).

Canada has experienced one of the fastest recoveries from the pandemic, thanks in large part to our approach to immigration. Newcomers enrich our communities and contribute to our economy by working, creating jobs, and supporting local businesses. Recognizing their value, the Government of Canada planned to welcome 431,645 new permanent residents in 2022, the IRCC said in a statement sent to Media in Toronto.

On Tuesday, Sean Fraser, Minister of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship, announced Canada has reached that target, surpassing our previous record from 2021. IRCC admitted over 437,000 new permanent residents in 2022, exceeding the 431,645 target. This represents the largest number of people ever welcomed in a year, in Canadian history. Prior to setting a new record for admissions in 2021, the last time Canada welcomed such a large number of newcomers was in 1913 with 400,870 permanent resident admissions.
