Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is launching six new immigration streams for more than 90,000 essential workers already in Canada, primarily those working in hospitals and long-term care homes, other essential services, and international graduates.
Those seeking permanent residence will be able to apply starting May 6 for the streams, three of which are aimed at French-speaking candidates. Ottawa will keep accepting applications until Nov. 5 or until the maximum number of applications is reached.
IRCC will accept:
- 20,000 applications for temporary workers in healthcare;
- 30,000 applications for temporary workers in other selected essential occupations, and;
- 40,000 applications for international students who graduated from a Canadian institution.
Applicants who are applying under the temporary foreign worker streams need to have at least one year of Canadian work experience in a healthcare sector or other pre-approved essential occupation.
