Did you know? Canada ranked as the Top 4 country of destination among Filipino spouses, fiance(é)s, and other partners of foreign nationals from 2009 to 2019, accounting for 5.36% or 12,130 of the entire population.

According to registration data obtained by CFO over this period, there were 1,103 Filipino spouses, fiance(é)s, and other partners of foreign nationals en route to Canada yearly on average. In 2017, the CFO recorded the highest annual count of Canada-bound Filipino spouses and partners at 1,278.

While the movement of the yearly number of Filipino spouses and other partners bound for Canada over the said period was almost erratic–increasing and decreasing every other year–it followed a slight upward trend from 2009 to 2017. In 2018, however, the number dropped suddenly to 984–the lowest it had been since 2010.

Reference data covers 2009-2019.
