Northwest Territories launched a new immigration stream

On September 23, 2022, the Government of Northwest Territories (GNWT) launched a new Francophone Stream of the Northwest Territories Nominee Program (NTNP).

Prospective French-speaking candidates who are currently employed by an NWT employer or live abroad but have a valid job offer from an NWT employer can apply to the new stream.

In addition, to be eligible, applicants also must have at least one year of full-time experience in the occupation for which they’re being nominated or six months of full-time experience in the NWT;

possess the required territorial certification, licensing or accreditation of the specific trade or occupation; meet language requirements in both English and French; and not be a refugee claimant. As of now, the NTNP has three streams: Employer-Driven, Business, and Francophone.

Canada to launch a new TR2PR program

On September 20, 2022, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) Sean Fraser presented a report to parliament on the government's plans to expand pathways to permanent residency for temporary foreign workers and international students.

This plan was formed in response to Motion 44, passed on May 11, 2022.

The IRCC minister tweeted this along with a photo of him and MP Randeep S. Sarai. According to reports from Randeep Sarai's office, a technical problem is preventing them from providing information about the IRCC official's evaluation.

IRCC is working on a new pathway for undocumented migrants

The Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, Sean Fraser, is working on a new permanent residency pathway for undocumented persons in Canada.

In December 2021, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gave the Immigration Minister a charge letter instructing him to develop pilot programs to look for more solutions for regularizing the status of undocumented workers who contribute to Canadian society.

The details of the program, such as the skills and educational levels of employees or the number of applications to be permitted, are not revealed.
