Economic Immigration Permanent Resident Programs

Canada announced the 3 new TR to PR pathways for essential workers and international graduates already living in working in Canada in recognition of their contribution to Canadians during the COVIC pandemic, and because the travel restrictions in place have hurt the labour market and local economies. The 3 new TR to PR pathways for French speakers and bilingual streams are to support francophone communities who are experiencing labour shortages.
