The sudden pressure of COVID-19 has forced many countries to a standstill and created unexpected public policies in relation to immigration. In Canada, the Minister of Immigration has made room for persons with temporary status to obtain permanent residence. It has been a game-changer for so many families and people who have been residing in Canada during the pandemic.

For instance, while Express Entry draws have hit record low scores for invitations, international students without the correct NOC code work experience have been offered the chance to apply for permanent residence.

Essential temporary workers in a low skill level also have access to permanent residence, along with refugee claimants in essential work positions (without a hearing). Another recent change is that visitors have been allowed to apply for work permits while inside Canada.

These new policies have been positive for the industry, primarily as they focused on providing options for people typically struggling to gain a smooth pathway to permanent residency. It includes those who are up in age or those with low language test results.

However, now that things are opening up in many Provinces, many are worried that the opportunities are over. There are also limited capacities for some programs that prohibit many from taking advantage of the policies. We agree that these new public policies are not permanent and don’t change immigration regulations. Although, we believe people should remain hopeful to see more exemptions, especially as there is still a need for immigration to pull the country back on track.
