Canada, under its one-time immigration programme, will grant PR (Permanent Residence) to more than 90,000 international students and temporary essential workers. The Indian students will be the major beneficiaries of this programme.

The application procedure started on May 05, 2021. Under the programme, the PR will be granted to candidates already in Canada.

Out of 90,000, the international students are 40, 000, temporary workers in chosen necessary occupations are 30, 000, and health care temporary workers are 20, 000 who will be granted the benefit.

The aim of the programme is to cover the shortfall in immigration numbers in the year 2020 caused by the pandemic. Canada, before the pandemic caused international travel ban in 2020, was planning to admit 341,000 immigrants.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • To apply for the programme, the international students must have completed their post-secondary education in the last 04 years in Canada.

  • The foreign workers must have acquired a minimum of 01-year experience in pre-approved essential occupation or health-care profession.

Marco Mendicino, the Immigration Minister, said, "The pandemic has shone a bright light on the contributions of newcomers in essential jobs, as we have recognized the cooks, caregivers,and cashiers as our everyday heroes". He further informed them that their status might be temporary but we value their contributions and wish them to stay.

The Indian students will benefit the most with this programme as they contribute more than 1/3rd to the numbers of the foreign students, numbering 220,000 in 2020.
