The Honourable Ahmed Hussen, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, has expanded opportunities for temporary foreign workers by adding 2,000 more spots to the Provincial Nominee Program. These new openings cater to existing temporary foreign workers in intermediate-skilled roles (National Occupation Code C), enabling them to transition to permanent residency and enhance worker security.
This step aligns with the Minister’s commitment to augment pathways for permanent residency, facilitating eligible candidates’ full integration into Canadian society. These supplementary slots in the Provincial Nominee Program complement other immigration initiatives like the Atlantic Immigration Pilot and the recently introduced Rural and Northern Program.
The extra 2,000 spaces specifically aim to increase the count of Temporary Foreign Workers who move to permanent residency via the Provincial Nominee Program. These added spaces will effectively address regional labor demands in crucial sectors, as defined by provinces and territories. Through this program, participating regions nominate foreign nationals projected to meet specific regional labor market and economic development requirements while intending to settle in their respective province.
