International Graduate Stream

International Graduate Stream

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) launched six new immigration streams for more than 90,000 essential workers already in Canada, primarily those working in hospitals and long-term care homes, other essential services, and international graduates. Those seeking permanent residence will be able to apply to start May 6 for the streams, three of which are aimed at French-speaking candidates. Ottawa will keep accepting applications until Nov. 5 or until the maximum number of applications is reached.
IRCC will accept 40,000 applications for international students who graduated from a Canadian institution.
Applicants who are applying under the temporary foreign worker streams need to have at least one year of Canadian work experience in a healthcare sector or other pre-approved essential occupation. The graduates need to have completed their studies at a Canadian college or university within the last four years.
