Temporary resident to permanent resident
The temporary resident to permanent resident pathway is a limited-time pathway to permanent residence. It is for certain temporary residents who are currently working in Canada and their families.
You may be eligible for permanent residence if:
- you have work experience in Canada in an essential occupation or the health or health services field
- you recently graduated from a Canadian post-secondary institution
There are 6 streams in this pathway:
- 3 accept both English- and French-speaking applicants
- 3 are specifically for French speakers
Each stream has different eligibility requirements.
Become a permanent resident
As an international graduate from a Canadian institution, or a temporary foreign worker in a hospital, in a long-term care home, or on the frontlines, you are driving the Canadian economy of tomorrow and helping with our economic recovery.
In recognition of your contribution, Canada is creating a new pathway to permanent residence for over 90,000 essential workers and international graduates from a Canadian institution.
