New Work Permit Application

Canada Opens New Work Permit Application for International Graduates

Last May 6, 2021 IRCC opened a temporary pathway to permanent residency for 40,000 international students, alongside 20,000 temporary workers in health care and 30,000 temporary workers for other essential occupations. The temporary public policy was supposed to run until November 2021, or until the caps were reached, whichever comes first – to no surprise at all, international graduates were fast to fill up the quota and the application closed the following day; while the portal is still open for the essential workers. Throughout the pandemic, Canada has imposed a lot of measures to continuously support its immigration plan that targets to have at least 401,000 immigrants for 2021. The candidates selected for this temporary public policy have been chosen as they are proven fit to fill labor gaps.
