What does Easter in Canada look like? It usually involves chocolate bunnies, candy, and other treats delivered by the Easter Bunny. Derived from German folklore, the Easter Bunny is an imaginary character, similar to Santa Clause, who brings gifts — chocolate and eggs — that are hidden for children to find on Easter Sunday! And unlike most other holidays, Easter is a “moveable feast” meaning it's held on a different date each year between March 22 and April 25, following the Paschal full moon on or after March 21. This year, Easter falls on Sunday, April 17 🐰🇨🇦
From IRCC: Our 2022‒2024 Immigration Levels Plan outlines an ambitious but responsible path for immigration to fuel Canada’s economic recovery and post-pandemic growth over the next few years: https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/news/2022/02/new-immigration-plan-to-fill-labour-market-shortages-and-grow-canadas-economy.html To ensure Canada has the workers it needs to support a strong economy into the future, we plan to welcome: ➡️ 431,645 permanent residents (PRs) in 2022 ➡️ 447,055 PRs in 2023 ➡️ 451,000 PRs in 2024 (about 1% of the Canadian population) To support Canada's economic growth, nearly 60% of planned admissions are in the Economic Class. We will continue to support: ✔️ family reunification ✔️ vulnerable populations and refugees ✔️ Francophone immigration ✔️ talent retention in Canada Put simply, more immigration means more people in Canada participating in our workforce, engaging in our communities, and giving back to our economy. Now, more than ever, #ImmigrationMatters to Canada. https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/campaigns/immigration-matters/track-record.html

Many of Canada’s immigration programs require an applicant to demonstrate a certain level of English and/or French proficiency. These levels are evaluated using the Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) which tests abilities in reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Only approved language tests can be used for immigration purposes, one of them being the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) @smu.ielts 🇨🇦 📍Cape Spear (North America's most easterly point), St. John’s, Newfoundland
