Let’s begin with this edition of FAQs on Canadian immigration by discussing the four most relevant topics in current times. 

Q1. How is Canadian immigration policy boosting intake for international students in 2023? 

Canada remains committed to attracting and retaining international students. Going by the recent figures, the number of study permit holders is forecasted to rise to approximately 753,000 international students between 2022 – 2023. 

The increased intake of international students is complemented by Canada’s strategic plan to expand permanent residence for international students.

Presently, the most popular Canada PR options after Post Graduate Work Permit visas are 

  • Express Entry
  • Provincial Nominee Program
  • Atlantic Immigration Pilot
  • Quebec Immigration
  • Family Sponsorship

Canadian immigration minister Sean Fraser submitted a strategy plan that expands pathways to permanent residence for international students and temporary foreign workers. 

More than half (56.1%) of Canadian businesses in 2021 reported that their overall workforce was not fully proficient to perform their job at the required level. Increasing study permit intake levels and providing PR pathways for international students in Canada will help address the workforce skill shortage. 

Further, the intake of international students in Canada is aided by liberal measures undertaken by the Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) that 

  • covers each individual with the aim of reducing vulnerabilities while moving to Canada
  • aiding international students through the permit application
  • helping in the settlement process in Canada

Q2. Why is Canada Express Entry accepting self-employed Physicians that were never considered before?  

Physicians who are in Canada for the purpose of gaining work experience were not allowed to obtain permanent residency through Express Entry programs. However, Canada has now recognized this barrier for self-employed immigrant Physicians in Canada. 

In a bid to close the skill shortage gap in the healthcare and social assistance sector, Canada will allow self-employed Physicians in Canada to obtain PR through Express Entry, like Canada Experience Class.  

It is important to note that being self-employed outside Canada and having at least one year of work experience abroad did not stop the candidates to apply for permanent residency through the Express Entry program.

Further, it is also found that one in every four healthcare professionals in Canada is an immigrant. Consider discussing specific details of your case with our immigration expert.
