Revisiting Canada Immigration between 10 July – 17 July


A lot happens over a week in the Canadian immigration landscape. Canada is on the road to recovery from the pandemic and is in need of immigrants to build a stronger economy and society. The resumption of all-program Express Entry draws, active Provincial Nominee Programs all point to the same. Here are some top highlights that may interest aspiring immigrants looking to work and settle permanently in Canada.  

Provincial Nominee Program Draws

Four Canadian provinces were seen active this week issuing provincial nominations to eligible candidates. A provincial nomination takes them a step closer to applying for permanent residence in Canada. Among the nominated were also candidates who are registered under the federal Express Entry system.

Relief for International Students 

Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) made significant changes keeping in mind the upcoming September 2020 academic year. 

Even though the travel restrictions are still in place in Canada, International students can resume their study programs online. The announcement by IRCC addresses the same concern by prioritizing the processing of study permits for those who have submitted their application online. Also, it looks to address how time spent studying online would account towards Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP). 


Canadian Job Market Remains Vibrant

The recovery in the Canadian labour market is visible as over 1 million jobs were created since the imposition of travel restrictions on March 18. The figure that was just 290,000 in May 2020 saw a surge in June 2020 as 953,000 job seekers were absorbed by the market. 

With a good recovery trend posed by the labour market recovery, the Canada unemployment rate continues to fall. This is also a great reason why one should continue planning for Canada immigration even in such uncertain times brought upon us due to COVID-19 pandemic.
