The pandemic has highlighted the contribution of foreign nationals in Canada, across all sectors and skill levels.

The public policies targets foreign nationals with at least one year of work experience in Canada in an essential occupation and foreign nationals who have been granted an eligible Canadian credential, and who are currently employed in Canada, in recognition of their economic contribution and in acknowledgement of the ongoing need that Canada has for these professionals.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada’s Outreach Officers would like to invite employers to attend a 30 minute virtual information session to learn about the new temporary public policies to facilitate the granting of permanent residence for foreign nationals in Canada.
