In April 2020, the global reach of the COVID-19 pandemic became clear. To understand its potential impact on prospective immigrants and their intentions to immigrate, WES Research conducted a survey of applicants for a WES Educational Credential Assessment (ECA). The resulting report is based on the responses of 4,615 individuals who reside outside of Canada.

The report provides insight into how the pandemic is affecting the immigration intentions of prospective immigrants to Canada, including:

  • Expectations about the economic impact of COVID-19
  • Factors impacting interest and intent to immigrate
