New Canadian immigration program in the works

Canada is creating a new immigration program for temporary residents, and changes to Express Entry are on the way.

Canada is working on a new fast-track immigration program for temporary foreign workers and international students. Immigration Minister Sean Fraser told CBC News the new program will be a permanent pathway for temporary residents. It will be similar but not identical to the Temporary Residence to Permanent Residence (TR2PR) program which opened the door to 90,000 essential workers and international student graduates last year. “We are looking right now at the best path forward to create a permanent pathway for temporary residents,” Fraser said to CBC News.
