Today, Canada’s Immigration Minister, Sean Fraser, announced a tenfold increase in the number of refugees that SAHs (Sponsorship Agreement Holders) can sponsor. SAHs will now have a yearly quota of 13,500 refugees to sponsor in 2023. The increase in limit is intended to help new SAHs get their businesses up and running. During the next three years, Canada will relocate over 144,000 refugees, including over 83,500 privately sponsored migrants. The IRCC Minister also stated that under the Economic Mobility Pathways Pilot, Canada will accept 2000 new skilled refugees (EMPP).
