Immigration Canada News: 2000 Additional Slots under PNP Announced
The Canada immigration pathways expand with 2000 additional spaces under the Provincial Nominee Program, the immigration Canada news reported. Specifically, temporary workers in Canada who work under the National Occupational Classification code C will benefit from this latest development. More opportunities are now open for them to become permanent residents.
“Temporary foreign workers fill long-term labor market needs and contribute to the growth of our economy. We recognize the need to provide opportunities for them to transition to permanent residence – and these additional spaces under the Provincial Nominee Program will do just that”, said The Honourable Ahmed Hussen, IRCC Minister.
More Pathways to Permanent Residency
According to the latest immigration Canada news, the Canadian government shows commitment toward the immigration system. It works to help strengthen the economy and offer growth of good middle-class jobs. “We are committed to providing foreign workers, in particular, those filling long-term labour market needs and who have integrated into Canadian society, with more pathways to permanent residency.”
Again, temporary foreign workers who are eligible for permanent residency and can fully contribute to Canadian society have more opportunities. Because of these, they can access the economic immigration pathway that best fits their qualification. These additional spaces will also help respond to “worker vulnerability”.
Improve the Number of Temporary Foreign Workers Who Become Permanent Residents
The additional spaces will provide an increase in the number of foreign workers who transition to permanent residents under the Provincial Nominee Program. These also complement other Canada immigration pathways, including Atlantic Immigration Pilot and Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot.
The immigration Canada news reported that provinces and territories under the Provincial Nominee Program can nominate temporary foreign workers, who, they believe, have the intention to live in their province and meet their economic and labor needs.
