More Hong Kong nationals arrive in Canada as IRCC eases requirements

Since Canada removed the educational requirements for the work experience stream of the permanent residence pathway designed for Hong Kongers, applications have significantly increased.

There was a 70% surge in applications in August alone compared to July. This change has been viewed as a positive step towards inclusivity and seizing opportunities.

Canada now acknowledges the skills and potential of Hong Kong's talented individuals and aims to address labour gaps with experienced workers.

This change was made in response to the crackdown on pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong. Canada introduced two new pathways to permanent residence, one for graduates who studied in Canada and another for individuals with Canadian work experience.
