Canada saw just over 15,000 new immigrants arrive in October, keeping pace with the month before, but still well down on 2019 levels, the latest figures show.

With restrictions in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it means Canada welcomed 158,565 new permanent residents in the first 10 months of this year, down from 295,180 in the corresponding period of 2019.

The 15,070 October newcomers effectively equalled the figure for September but there is less than half the 31,235 new permanent residents welcomed in October 2019.
