90,000 foreign workers, students to be granted permanent Canadian residency


- Advertisment -

Canada will grant permanent residency to over 90,000 foreign students and workers who helped treat patients during the pandemic. 

Canadian Immigration Minister Marco Mendicino said that the initiative is applicable for workers with at least one year of work experience in health care or dozens of other sectors deemed essential–from grocery store cashiers and shelf stockers to truck drivers and farm workers–as well as graduates who have completed a post-secondary degree within the last four years. 

The program will take into effect from May 6. 

The minister said the move should help the country to reach its target of welcoming more than 400,000 immigrants this year. 

“The pandemic has shone a bright light on the incredible contributions of newcomers. These new policies will help those with temporary status to plan their future in Canada, play a key role in our economic recovery and help us build back better. Your status may be temporary, but your contributions are lasting–and we want you to stay,” he further added.
