The Canadian Government has recently announced new permanent residency policies

The Canadian government has recently announced new permanent residency policies aimed at addressing the current labour shortage and helping the country's economy bounce back from the COVID-19 pandemic. Here are some of the latest permanent residency news in Canada that you might find interesting:

  1. Express Entry Program: The Express Entry Program is one of the most popular ways to become a permanent resident in Canada. In the last round of invitations, the minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score for candidates who received an invitation dropped to 445, the lowest it has been since 2020.

  2. Provincial Nomination Programs: Many Canadian provinces have their own immigrant nomination programs to attract skilled workers and address labour shortages. Ontario, for example, has recently announced a new plan to make it easier for international students to obtain permanent residence.

  3. International Mobility Program: The International Mobility Program is a temporary work program for international students and young professionals between 18 and 30 years old. It allows qualified individuals to work and live in Canada for up to two years, and in some cases, can lead to permanent residence.

  4. Family Sponsorship Program: The Family Sponsorship Program allows permanent residents and Canadian citizens to sponsor their family members to immigrate to Canada. The processing times for applications have dropped considerably in recent months, which should make it easier for families to reunite.
