Slight decrease in the number of Portuguese entries in Canada in 2019

There were 855 Portuguese who entered Canada in 2019, according to data from Citizenship and Immigration Canada. The official statistics department accounted for a total of 341,175 entries of foreigners in Canadian territory in that year, with the Portuguese accounting for 0.3% of this total. +

After the growth that had been recorded in 2018, the number of Portuguese entries to Canada declined slightly in 2019 (-1.2%). Over the period under review, the lowest number of entries was in 2003, when only 329 Portuguese emigrated to Canada. In 2018, the highest value of the series was recorded with the entry of 865 Portuguese into Canadian territory. Portuguese emigration to Canada continues to represent a very small fraction of both immigration in this country (0.3%) and total Portuguese emigration (less than 1%).
