Canada is developing a new temporary resident immigration scheme, and modifications to Express Entry are on the way.
For temporary foreign workers and international students, Canada is developing a new fast-track immigration scheme.
According to CBC News, Immigration Minister Sean Fraser said the new program will provide a permanent option for temporary residents. It will be similar to, but not identical to, the TR2PR program, which welcomed 90,000 vital workers and international student grads last year.
"This moment, we're attempting to sort out the best way to deal with making a permanent residence pathway for temporary residence," Fraser told CBC News.
Fraser was given the task of "expanding routes to Permanent Residence for international students and temporary foreign employees" shortly after being appointed immigration minister. According to a vote passed in the Canadian House of Commons, Fraser now has 120 days to draft and publicize a strategy to attain these objectives.

"That puts me under a tight deadline to come up with a structure to develop this new permanent residency pathway, not just for international students, but also for temporary foreign workers," Fraser explained.
When Fraser's 120 deadlines expire on September 8, further information about the new program will be accessible.
Changes to Express Entry
This July, Canada will allow candidates from the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) and the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) to apply for permanent residency once again, but that won't be the only change.
Bill C-19 is currently making its way through the Senate and is expected to become law soon. It will allow Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to accept Express Entry candidates into the pool based on an economic purpose, such as occupation, French language proficiency, or educational credential.
To help them choose which groups of Express Entry candidates will be invited in these sorts of drawings, IRCC will be compelled to engage in a public consultation process. Furthermore, IRCC is required to submit an annual report to Parliament detailing the economic purpose pursued in each case.
Working in Canada normally necessitates the acquisition of a work visa. Work permits are separated into two categories: Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) work permits and International Mobility Program (IMP) work permits. TFWP work permits require companies to perform a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA), whereas IMP work permits are designed to serve Canada's economic, social, and cultural interests. Because the work performed by these work permit holders has been proved to be of great benefit to Canada or is the result of a reciprocal arrangement with another nation, IMP work permits are exempt from the LMIA.
How to Immigrate to the United States Using Express Entry
The Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Canadian Experience Class, and the Federal Skilled Trades Program all use Express Entry as a management system for their applications. In other words, you must be eligible for at least one of these programs in order to be considered for Express Entry.
Once you've been accepted into the pool, you'll be assigned a score using the IRCC's Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). The CRS considers your job experience in a skilled occupation, your academic background, your ability to communicate in an official language, your age, and other economic considerations. The more CRS points you have, the almost certain you are to get an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residency in Canada.
Candidates in the pool of Express Entry candidates may be invited to submit for a provincial nomination under the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). You will be granted 600 CRS points if you respond to the invitation and are nominated. This bonus effectively ensures that you will earn an ITA in the next Express Entry round.
The ITA is required to apply for Express Entry immigration to Canada. The normal response time for IRCC is six months after they receive your response to the ITA. However, the pandemic has slowed actual processing times.
