Government announces new permanent residency pathways for International students, Healthcare and Essential workers

On April 14, 2021, CIC announced three new permanent residency pathways. The first pathway is for Graduates from a Canadian Study Program. The second and third are targeted towards Canadian Workers in Essential Occupations and Healthcare.

Graduates from a Canadian Study Program

The first pathway is for individuals who have graduated from an eligible Canadian study program after January 2017. Graduates must meet the language requirements of a CLB 5 and must intend to live outside of Quebec. Candidates must meet 1 of the following 3 educational credentials:

The first requires individuals to have obtained an eligible Associate Degree, Bachelors Degree, Masters Degree, or Ph.D. that was a minimum of 8 months (or 1 academic year) long.
The second is for individuals who have obtained an education of any length of time within a skilled-trade in-demand occupation, please see List 1: Skilled Trades Eligible Occupations below for a list of occupations considered.
The third is for applicants who have completed 2-years of Canadian education from an eligible Canadian post-secondary institution. The 2-year credential requirement can be met as a combination of two 1-year programs. This option is open to graduates of all disciplines.

Canadian Workers in Essential Occupations

The second pathway is for workers who have gained 12-months of Canadian work experience in an eligible occupation in the last 3-years. Applicants must meet the language requirement of a CLB 4 and must intend to live outside of Quebec. This program is divided into two streams and is open to eligible healthcare and essential workers.

Stream A: Healthcare Occupations

The first stream is open to individuals who have 1-year of Canadian work experience in one or in a combination of multiple eligible occupations that are included in List 2: Healthcare Occupations (see list end of article).

Stream B: Essential Workers

This stream is open to individuals who have 1-year of Canadian work experience in one or in a combination of multiple eligible occupations that are listed in List 2: Healthcare Occupations and in List 3: Essential Occupations (see list at end of article). Unlike Stream A, this stream allows for applicants to use the experience gained in occupations from both lists of in-demand occupations.

Conclusion

There are a few items that individuals considering applying need to keep in mind. The first and foremost being that all applicants must have completed their language tests prior to submitting their application.
Secondly, applicants must be employed inside of Canada on a valid work permit at the time of submission and must be in Canada on a valid temporary resident status at the time of approval. The applicant does not necessarily need to be employed at the time of the approval, but they do need to be inside of Canada.
Finally, there are caps placed on non-French speaking applicants, but not on French-speaking applicants. Non-French speakers will be placed in a stream that is capped at 90,000 applications. Therefore, if you speak French, and you can meet the minimum language requirements, we recommend that you consider applying through the French-speaking stream.

If this program appeals to you, we advise that you schedule a consultation with a licensed immigration expert immediately. This amazing opportunity is capped for non-French speakers, and if that is you, we highly recommend that you hire Bright Immigration to assist you with assessing your eligibility and preparing your submission – you only get one chance, do it right the first time!
