The IRCC reveals new guidelines as per which the eligibility criteria for the new Canada Immigration programs for essential worker and international graduate streams have been highlighted.
Recently, IRCC has released new program guidelines for the eligibility criteria of six new permanent residence programs that have been introduced for essential worker and international graduate streams. The IRCC introduced these programs on May 6.
There were submissions of 40,000 English-speaking International Graduate stream applications after one day. IRCC is set to explore the status under various streams. There are over 11000 applications submitted under the English-speaking essential worker streams. The combined quota of applications is 50,000.
In comparison, the three French-speaking streams have a much lower uptake. The reason could be the smaller francophone population in Canada and that they are not subject to the quotas. The applicants have until November 6 to make submissions to IRCC.
The applicants need to meet the guidelines as per the approved six streams:
All applicants living in Canada should have valid temporary resident status and must be physically present in Canada at the time of submission and approval of the application. Refugee claimants are not eligible in any of the six streams.
