Canada’s new immigration stream for essential workers has reached its limit of 30,000

Canada’s immigration stream for English-speaking essential workers who do not work in healthcare-related positions has reached its limit of 30,000. This immigration stream is one of the six temporary residence to permanent residence (TR to PR) pathways. The quota was met on July 18, more than two months after the program was originally launched. After the international graduates stream, which was open for just 25 hours, it is the second program to fill up before the programs close on November 5. Interestingly, the last few thousand spots were filled only one day after IRCC announced the opportunity to apply for Bridging Open Work Permit for candidates under this program.
