IRCC accepts 90,000 immigrants from temporary residents in Canada

IRCC has announced they are going to accept 90,000 immigrants from temporary residents in Canada. The measure covers temporary foreign workers and international students. However, you have to meet the criteria. IRCC has issued a series of public policies to detail their intention.

Temporary residents that could benefit from this policy

The following temporary residents could benefit from this public policy. Of course, you must consider the details as well.

  • 40,000 international students who graduated in Canada in the past four years
  • 30,000 essential workers
  • 20,000 healthcare workers

When does this program begin, and when does it end?

The program begins on May 6, 2021. However, it ends when it reaches its quota. Regardless, this program won’t remain open after November 5, 2021. I suspect it will get its allocation in a matter of weeks, if not days.

Can Quebec residents apply?

If you intend to reside in Quebec after becoming a permanent resident, you may not apply. Nevertheless, the public policies are silent about the current residency of the applicants. They only mention you must reside in Canada with a valid work permit.

Criteria for temporary residents who are international students

You must meet all of the following to apply. Nonetheless, I have summarized the requirements. Please contact us if you believe you meet the criteria, and we will further assess you.

Of course, the devil is in the details, but I hope this summarized list gives you an idea if you qualify.

Requirements for temporary residents who are healthcare and essential workers

If you are a worker in Canada, then you must meet these criteria. However, since this is a summarized list, contact us for further assessment.
