Major Changes to the Temporary Foreign Workers Program for Canada
19th, Oct 2021
On October 18, 2021, the government of Canada exempted Afghanistan nationals from the 12-month bar due to the worsening conditions in Afghanistan that put individuals at risk.
Afghan applicants whose previous pre-removal risk assessment (PRRA) decision was made between October 19th, 2020 and October 18th, 2021,
and whose refugee claim or previous application for a PRRA is rejected or withdrawn, or dismissed by the Federal Court, can apply for a PRRA.
Those whose decisions were made after October 18th, 2021, will still be subjected to the 12-month bar.
