This program is effective from May 6, 2021 until November 5, 2021.

The portal will remain open until November 5th, or until the maximum number of applications is reached.

The new pathways are being touted as vital to bolster Canada’s healthcare system and industries providing essential services, particularly during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Canada will be accepting:

  • 20,000 applications for temporary workers in health care;
  • 30,000 applications for temporary workers in other selected essential occupations, and;
  • 40,000 applications for international students who graduated from an eligible Canadian institution
  • Three additional streams with similar eligibility criteria have also been launched for French-speaking and bilingual candidates, but there is no maximum number of applications for those who speak French.
