Expanded Economic Mobility Pathways Pilot

December 3, 2021- IRCC created the Economic Mobility Pathways Pilot (EMPP) to help skilled refugees immigrate to Canada through existing economic programs to support Canadian labour market needs. This is the second phase of the EMPP. In the first phase of this pilot, we learned that skilled refugees can qualify for permanent residence through our economic programs with some help.

Starting December 3, 2021, EMPP phase 2 will help settle up to 500 skilled refugees, and their families, in Canada.

The pilot combines refugee resettlement and economic immigration. The support we provide overseas is tailored to refugees. The selection criteria, including the ability to settle independently in Canada, is assessed using economic immigration requirements.
