New Temporary Pathway to Permanent Residency For Foreign nationals with Canadian Work Experience

Overview – Temporary public policy – For Foreign nationals in Canada, outside of Quebec, with recent Canadian work experience in essential occupations

As a part of the 2021-2023 immigration Levels Plan, Canada has a goal of welcoming 401,000 new permanent residents by the end of 2021. But this pandemic had some other plans. Due to the extended closures of the borders and the inability to admit new immigrants from abroad, Canada is consecutively introducing new immigration plans. 

This is one of the new temporary public policies introduced on April 14, 2021.

This policy is for the Foreign nationals temporarily residing and working in Canada who are contributing to the economic development of the country. The foreign nationals addressed in these policies are already contributing to the labour market. By granting permanent residency to such temporary residents, Canada will reap benefits from their competencies over time. 

Most of the temporary foreign workers who have made remarkable contributions to the country during the pandemic have faced several challenges in qualifying and applying for Canadian permanent residency. So, this public policy is a payback to them by allowing them to transform their temporary status to permanent.

Eligibility requirements for principal applicants

To be qualified to apply under these policies the foreign national must:

  1. Have a minimum of one year of full-time or part-time (at least 1560 hours) Canadian work experience in the essential occupation. You can check for the list of eligible occupations in Annex A or Annex B. The experience should have been acquired in the last three years before the date of submission of the permanent residency application. The qualifying work experience must have been obtained in one or more occupations as follows:
  • Stream A: the applicant must have one year of work experience in one or more occupations listed in Annex A. Please note, occupations from Annex A and B cannot be combined under this stream. 
  • Stream B: the applicant must have one year of work experience in one or more occupations listed in Annex B or a combination of occupations listed in both the annexes.
  1. Be working in Canada irrespective of any occupation at the time of the submission of the application for permanent residence;
  1. The employment described in both 1. and 2. must comply with the definition of work as per subsection 73(2) of the Regulations that are authorized according to the Act and Regulations. Also, the applicant must not have been self-employed, except practicing as a medical doctor in a chargeable arrangement with a health authority;
  1. Have achieved a level of proficiency of a minimum score of 4 in one of the official languages of Canada. The score is to be attained in every skill area of the language test as outlined in the Canadian Language Benchmarks or the Niveaux de compétence Linguistique canadiens. The test taken should be evaluated by a designated institute or organization by the concerned authorities. The evaluation report should not be more than two years old from the date of application submission.
  1. Be residing in Canada on a valid temporary resident permit. If not valid, the applicant must be eligible to restore their status. The applicant should also be present in the country both at the time of submission and approval of the permanent residency application.
  1. Have plans to reside in a province or territory except for Quebec.
  1. Have submitted the permanent residence application with completed forms provided by this public policy’s designated Department. The application must also include all the supporting documents.

They can submit a document or provide a signature or information, electronically or by any other means as specified by the Minister in this regard.
  1. Not be inadmissible to Canada as per the Act and Regulations.

All the important supporting documents to evaluate the application must be submitted at the time of application. Still, the immigration officer continues to hold the discretion to request additional documents to process the application if needed.
