Best 6 TR to PR in Canada Pathways 2021

Here are the six new TR to PR pathways for immigrants in Canada.

The Canadian government announced the TR to PR streams in Canada. The plan is to use the plan to offer permanent residence status to 401,000 new permanent residents in 2021.

So, in order to overcome the restrictions caused by Covid 19, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC)  introduced new streams for attaining permanent residence status in Canada.

However, this new pathway to permanent residency only targets temporary residents who are already in Canada. These immigrants must also meet the IRCC immigration targets.

The temporary resident to permanent resident pathway has a time limit. Thus, only those who meet the deadline will be qualified.

Furthermore, this pathway applies to those who work in the essential occupants and health services and those who have graduated from a Canadian post-secondary institution. 

Temporary residents’ new pathways to permanent residency 2021

There are six TR to PR pathways, otherwise regarded as new pathway to permanent residency in Canada. These pathways or streams are divided into two according to language.

Thus, there are three general streams and three French Speaker streams.

General Streams

The general TR to PR pathway is accepted for both English- and French-speaking applicants in Canada. They include:

#1. Workers in Canada: Healthcare stream

#2. Workers in Canada: Essential, non-healthcare streams

#3. Recent international graduates from Canadian institution stream.

Workers in Canada: Healthcare

This stream targets 20,000 applications from temporary workers in healthcare. It will facilitate their TR to PR in Canada as they are in demand in Canada.

Workers in Canada: Essential, Non-healthcare:

Canada needs 30,000 applications in the essential occupations. The allocation for this stream by IRCC has been filled.

Recent international graduates from a Canadian institution:

This stream targets 40,000 applications to use the TR to PR in Canada pathways for Canada permanent residence.

So, if you graduated from a Canadian high institution, you can apply for this stream. However, the stream has reached the targeted 40,000 applicants. 

French speakers TR to PR in Canada Pathways

French speakers in Canada also have three equivalent streams for them. They include:

#1. French Workers in Canada: Health care stream
