IRCC recently implemented a temporary post-graduation work permit policy for students graduating outside of Canada due to COVID-19.
As much as permanent residency applications were affected due to travel restrictions, international students were particularly affected.
Canada’s Immigration Minister offered a little sliver of hope to international graduates who missed out on applying to the public policy targeting international graduates.
After the much-anticipated opening of the Temporary Resident to Permanent Resident Pathway on the 6th May 2021, the stream targeting recent international graduates from a Canadian institution closed at 1.04 pm on May 7th, 2021.
Reinstating Canada’s value for international graduates, a new temporary public policy has been put into place for international graduates in Canada to apply for permanent residence in Canada.
