Many temporary Canadian residents facing work permit expiry struggle to gain permanent residency

In Canada, temporary residents with expiring work permits face challenges in gaining permanent residence due to the federal government's scoring system.

Attributes like age, education, and language proficiency earn points, but recent prioritization has disadvantaged higher-scoring candidates.

This has led to some resorting to dubious means to secure job offers for points. Peter Veress, an immigration consultant, highlighted the increasing misuse of Labour Market Impact Assessments (LMIAs) as proof of arranged employment in immigration applications.

Amid a housing crisis, Employment Minister Randy Boissonnault acknowledged this issue and pledged to address the misuse of the temporary foreign worker program.
