Over Five years ago, on January 27, 2017, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (“IRCC”) introduced a pilot project designed to enhance the economy of Atlantic Canada, which had been in steady decline due to a shrinking labour force and aging population. The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Project (“AIPP”) offered permanent residence to eligible applicants that intend to permanently settle in one of the four Atlantic provinces.

On May 6, 2021, Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship (“IRCC”) launched the Temporary Residence to Permanent Residence Pathway (“TR to PR”) for essential workers and international students in Canada. On July 26, 2021, IRCC broadened the benefits of this pathway. Candidates can now apply for a coveted open work permit while their temporary residence status is still in place (until a decision is made on their permanent residence application). This open work permit allows those who are awaiting a decision on their application to extend or remain in status during this transitional period.

On April 14, 2021, Minister Mendicino introduced the Temporary Resident to Permanent Resident Pathway (“TR to PR”) class providing a marvelous opportunity for health care workers, designated essential workers and international students currently within Canada to apply for permanent residence. The threshold for success is much lower than the requirements under Express Entry and a total of 90,000 applicants were tagged for this new program with maximum targets of 20,000 for health care workers, 30,000 for essential workers and 40,000 for international students.
