14th, Apr 2022
In 2021, the number of international students who immigrated to Canada under the temporary resident to permanent resident (TR2PR) pathway almost tripled when compared to the previous year.
According to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), there were 22,670 foreign students who got their PR through the TR2PR program.
To note, this figure almost tripled the 7,750 new permanent residents who had previously had study permits in 2020. In addition, it nearly doubled the 11,565 approvals of 2019 – the last pre-pandemic year.
