New Temporary Pathway to Permanent Residency For International Graduates in Canada

Overview

Temporary public policy – For Foreign nationals in Canada, outside of Quebec, with a recent credential from a Canadian post-secondary institution

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 border closures and the inability to admit new immigrants, Canada is introducing new immigration plans. This is one of the new temporary public policies introduced on April 14, 2021.

Canada has always valued international graduates as a source of key competencies necessary for the country’s economic growth. This policy is for International graduates who have recently attained credentials from a post-secondary institution and are employed in Canada. By granting permanent residency to such recent international graduates, Canada will reap benefits from their competencies over time. Further, these graduates are educated enough to support the economy in the long run.

Most of the international students who are currently employed have made remarkable contributions to the country during the pandemic and 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 completed a study program from one of the Designated Learning Institutions. The program must have been completed before the submission of the application but no earlier than January 2017.
