Temporary public policy to facilitate the granting of permanent residence for French-speaking foreign nationals in Canada, outside of Quebec, with a recent credential from a Canadian post-secondary institution
Supporting and assisting the development of minority official language communities in Canada is an objective of immigration. Efforts to increase Francophone immigration outside of Quebec are part of the Government’s plan for economic growth and long-term prosperity throughout the country. Canada has long valued international graduates as a source of key talent to help support economic growth and counteract the country’s aging demographic. By granting permanent resident status to recent international graduates with French language proficiency from Canadian institutions and who are currently employed in Canada, the economy will be able to continue to benefit from their training and expertise for pandemic recovery and into the future. In addition, these international graduates from both college and university programs have the education required to support their long-term economic establishment in Canada, but as a result of the pandemic may face challenges in qualifying and applying for permanent residence. The public policy responds directly to these pandemic-related by creating a temporary pathway which accelerates the expected trajectory that many international graduates take to permanent residence.
