Latest Immigration News
Canada has a plan to admit 2,000 additional temporary overseas workers as permanent residents in this year by using the Provincial Nominee Program. This welcome measure was announced by the Government of Canada.

PNP is popular

The PNP is a popular and trend-setting system which allows participating provinces/territories for nominating a specific number of candidates in economic immigration. They can obtain permanent residence in Canada each year for meeting the ever-increasing local labor market requirements. It is a measure to increase and maintain the growth of the economy in the present as also in the future.

On March 12, The Government of Canada, in a news release, said that the allocation of these additional spaces was primarily for existing Temporary Foreign Workers, who are in Canada for a long-term. They possess intermediate skills under the classification of National Occupational Code “C” and have integrated into society.

Workers are important

Ahmed Hussen Minister of Immigration, Canada says that the temporary overseas workers fill up long-term labor market requirements, and also play a major role in the growth of the Canadian economy. The Government, moreover, recognizes the responsibility to provide more opportunities for them. This measure will help them to transition towards permanent residence.

IRCC also states that additional spaces will help in addressing worker vulnerability. Moreover, The Multi-Year Immigration Levels plan shows that Canada has an admissions target of 61,000 in 2019 for the Provincial Programs. Also, this is an increase of 6,000 over the figures for last year. These 2,000 spaces form a part of this increase in the plan.

This announcement comes after IRCC created the Interim Pathway for Caregivers. This temporary pathway for permanent residence opened on March 4th and will continue until June 4th. It is specific to eligible in-home temporary overseas caregivers who arrived in Canada after Nov 30, 2014.
