Temporary public policy to facilitate the granting of permanent residence for French-speaking foreign nationals in Canada, outside of Quebec, with recent Canadian work experience in essential occupations
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. As a result of the pandemic, attention has been placed on the ongoing need to fill certain essential occupations. By granting permanent resident status to those with French language proficiency and experience in these occupations, Canada will be leveraging Francophone immigration outside of Quebec, to help stabilize this workforce both for pandemic recovery and into the future. In addition, these existing French-speaking temporary foreign workers have made a contribution to Canada during the COVID-19 pandemic and in some cases face difficulty in qualifying and applying for permanent residence. The public policy responds directly to this contribution and these challenges by implementing measures that create a temporary pathway to permanent residence.
