Update on TR to PR Pathway for International Graduates

Canada's TR to PR Pathway opened May 6, 2021, with a goal of accelerating permanent residency for 90,000 essential healthcare workers, temporary essential workers in other fields, international graduates and francophones and bilingual workers already in Canada. Canada reached its limit of 40,000 international graduate applications within 25 hours of opening applications - plus accepted an additional 7,307 applications due to a technical error, according to an IRCC information request obtained by CIC News.

International Graduate TR to PR Pathway

On June 28, IRCC approved a temporary public policy requested by Immigration Minister Marco Mendicino to allow the additional 7,307 applications to be processed, and for those applicants not to be penalized according to IRCC policy and their applications returned to them.

The TR to PR temporary permanent residence programs will help Canada reach its 2021 Immigration Levels Plan and welcome 401,000 new permanent residents.

Canada's Temporary TR to PR pathway streams will remain open until November 5, 2021, or until they have reached their limit.
