New pathway to permanent residence – Invitation to a technical briefing

The pandemic has highlighted the contribution of foreign nationals in Canada, across all sectors and skill levels. As Canada builds back better from the global COVID-19 pandemic, Canada needs the necessary workforce to support the health and well-being of individuals, as well as our economic recovery.

On April 14, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) announced the implementation of temporary public policies that allow a one-time temporary pathway to permanent residence for eligible temporary residents currently employed in Canada.

This pathway will allow international graduates who have completed an eligible program of study in Canada, as well as temporary workers in health care and select essential occupations, to apply for permanent residence, ensuring that Canada has the workers it needs to fuel its economic recovery.

The public policies also contribute to the Government of Canada’s commitment to support Francophone immigration outside Quebec by not capping French-speaking or bilingual candidates.

To learn more about this program, please read our news release. A detailed explanation of all eligibility requirements is available within the public policies. We recommend that temporary residents who qualify for these programs start preparing now, including language tests, so they can submit their applications when the program opens on May 6, 2021.

Further information related to the program and how to apply will be available on May 5, 2021.
