New policies for applicants through the temporary resident to permanent resident pathway

April 22, 2022– Taking effect summer 2022, the policy changes announced today include:

  • Applicants will no longer be required to remain in Canada while their application is being processed.

  • Applicants who apply for an open work permit while waiting for their permanent residence application to be finalized will be able to get work permits valid until the end of 2024. This will ensure that all permanent residence applications will be finalized before applicants will need to apply to extend their temporary status again.

  • To support family reunification, immediate family members who are outside Canada and who were included in a principal applicant's permanent residence application will be eligible for their own open work permit.
