6 new streams for PR in Canada
Have you heard? Canada will launch SIX new immigration programs as of MAY 2021!! If you are an International Graduate, Essential Worker, or French Speaker, it is time to tune in!
90,000 YES 90,000 immigrants will have a chance to secure a Canadian Permanent Residency (PR) visa via the new program streams for international graduates and essential workers BUT, it gets even BETTER!! For the French-speaking stream, there will be no intake cap! Did I hear someone say au revoir? Haha!
So, let us get down to business as of May 6th (note it in your calendar) the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) will be accepting the following applications:
- 20,000 Temporary Workers in health care
- 30,000 Temporary Workers in other selected essential occupations
- 40,000 International students
You might be wondering what are the requirements for these streams?
To be eligible, you will need to have at least one year of work experience in Canada under the essential worker stream. If you are an international graduate, you will need to have first graduated from a Canadian educational institute and have done so within the last four years, so nothing pre-January 2017.
Outside of meeting the above-mentioned requirements, you must also be/have the following at the time of your application to qualify:
- Proficient in English or French
- Authorized to work in Canada.
- Meet the general acceptability requirements.
- Presently working in Canada
Please note that these new pathways are only available to those residing in Canadian provinces. This does not include Quebec.
As expected, opportunities like this are not around forever, so there is a deadline, which is November 5th, 2021, or until the acceptance limit has been reached.
If you match the requirements, we strongly suggest you get in touch with us right now at The Immigration Office to secure this amazing opportunity!
So now you know the ins and outs of the new pathways to permanent residency in Canada, and you may find yourself in your forever home there as soon as November this year! How exciting!
We will conclude on the same note that Canada’s immigration minister Marco Mendicino has said, “Our message to them is simple: your status may be temporary, but your contributions are lasting—and we want you to stay.”
Best of luck!
