Canada is looking at offering more permanent residence pathways to foreign nationals who are already in the country.
Following the announcement that Canada would welcome over 400,000 immigrants per year over the next three years, Immigration Minister Marco Mendicino told Bloomberg that the federal government will make an announcement on this soon.
The immigration minister said it is important for Canada to identify how it can accelerate pathways to permanent residence for international students, temporary foreign workers, and asylum seekers already in the country. This is necessary to alleviate the economic challenges Canada is currently facing in part due to lower immigration levels caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The decline in Canada’s immigration levels has slowed population, labour force, and economic growth.
