Permanent Residence For Foreign Nationals With Canadian Experience in Essential Occupations
New Program! Are you a temporary resident in Canada working in an Essential Occupation? Immigration Pros can help you become a permanent resident!
The Canadian Government announced this April 12th ,2021 a temporary public policy to facilitate the granting of permanent residence for foreign nationals in Canada, outside of Quebec, with recent Canadian work experience in essential occupations.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and extended border closure, Canada is now turning to temporary residents in the country that contribute to the labor market. The government’s objective with this new policy is to reach the 2021-2023 Immigration Levels Plan goals.
Starting May 6th, if you are a temporary worker, you will be able to apply under this new stream. Canada will keep the application process open until November 5th or once the intake cap is reached (20,000 applications for stream A and 30,000 applications for stream B). You will need experience in one or several of the 40 health-related occupations or 95 other eligible essential occupations (see the complete list) to apply to one of the two streams conceived under this policy.
Don’t lose more time! Immigration Pros can help you submit your application for this program.
- 1,560 hours of full-time or half-time employment in essential occupations.
- Experience in essential occupations gathered in the last three years before applying.
- To apply to stream A, candidates must comply with experience in one or more health-related essential occupations.
- To apply to stream B, candidates must comply with experience in one or more health-related or other essential occupations.
- Valid language proficiency certificate, equal or superior to 4 in the CLB or NCLC.
- Be employed at the time of application submission.
- Be in Canada under a valid temporary residence status.
Canadian Government has also taken into consideration family applications. Under certain circumstances, this new policy will also allow potential candidates to include in their application family members in Canada or even abroad.

Open Work Permit for Candidates and Included Family Members
Canadian Government announced that as of July 26, 2021 applicants from Temporary Residence to Permanent Residence Pathway Programs will be able to apply for Open Work Permits under a temporary public policy.
This policy provides exemptions so that eligible candidates (and any family members included in the pathway application) can obtain an open work permit while waiting for the outcome of their case.
