In my over thirty years of practice as an immigration lawyer it has been a fundamental principal of immigration processing that applicants should generally apply for both Canadian temporary or permanent status from outside of Canada. While there are some exceptions to this requirement, they have been few. That all changed during the global pandemic with many workers, students and visitors being stranded in Canada with no ability to travel for months and, in some cases, years.

Less than a year since his assuming the Office of the Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, the Honourable Sean Fraser is continuing to make waves in the Canadian immigration world through his various speaking engagements and official Twitter account. Over the past few months, Minister Fraser has been hard at work and regularly teasing new and important policy changes that are currently being developed and implemented. Although details are still scarce, here are the major updates you need to be aware of for the second half of 2022!

The Canadian Government is committed to supporting international students through the challenges of the Coronavirus (“Covid-19”) pandemic. On January 8, 2021, Canada’s Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (“IRCC”), the Honourable Marco Mendicino, announced a temporary policy to help former international students remain in Canada to live, work, and continue to integrate into Canadian society.
