This "Annual Report on immigration to the Parliament" gives you an idea of how many PR's and WP's have been approved in 2008. The numbers in 2009 are supposed to be the same. It also shows how many immigrants were admitted from which country... quite intersting I find:

absolutely

I also read on cic today that for 2010 the same numbers are targeted.

Just hope that my second PR application goes through quicker than the one I already submitted 1.5 yrs ago...

That's really interesting........

I honestly thought there would be a higher percentage of brits emigrating to Canada

By the way, my first visit to Canada was to Toronto, absolutely loved it! What a great city

Good luck with your application - hope it all works out well for you.

I thought that too. However, considering it, I think Brits have always prefered the U.S., Aus, NZ as a destination to emigrate to. I knew though that the Chinese have, by far, the highest number of emigrants to Canada. This stat hasn't changed for many years and won't do in the forseeable future due to family class admissions.

Looking at the inadmissability criteria for temporary residents in 2008, I was surprised that only 17 were barred for 'misrepresentation' (what I take to be lying on admission forms). I thought it would be a lot, lot higher.

Really interesting article. Thanks for posting.

yeah I know what you mean - when people find out I'm heading to Canada they look at me as though I've gone mad and I'm heading off to another planet

That's not the number of people barred for misrepresentation. That table shows the number of people issued temporary resident permits to overcome each inadmissibility. In other words, 17 people were allowed into Canada despite being inadmissible for misrepresentation.
