New PR pathways for some foreign nationals


etween now and November 5, 2021, the Government of Canada will allow some 90,000 foreign nationals to “land” in Canada as new Canadians. There are three pathways, encompassing individuals with varying backgrounds and work experience in “essential” occupations, as well as recently graduated international students who are currently employed. Eligible candidates must already be in Canada; have legal temporary status; and be currently working with at least one year of experience. They must have passed an approved English test and be legally admissible to Canada.

If that describes you, you will need to personally apply through a special portal that will be set up to receive applications under these policies. Applicants will have to provide personalized information (of themselves and dependents, if applicable) and upload evidence at the same time, in order to submit a complete application. Find out more details on this web site.
