Canada is all set to begin its Permanent Residency (PR) Program under Express Entry from 6 July.

The announcement was made by Canada's Immigration minister  Sean Fraser.

It was a restriction imposed during the COVID-era and is now all set to be lifted from the immigration services.

All eligible candidates under Federal Skilled Worker  Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program & Canadian Experience Class can send applications.

The decision has been taken during a time when Canada is already suffering from process delays.

Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC) had an immigration backlog of 2.4 million people as of 6 June, 2022.

Last week, PM Justin Trudeau announced a new task force to tackle these process delays.

Earlier on 25 June, the Canadian government also offered a work permit extension to international students.

Faser had then said that these students will be granted an additional 18-month open work permit under the PGWPP.

Canada’s economy continues to recover & there are still hundreds of jobs to be filled, Faser had tweeted.
