Canada’s International Graduates: There Is Still Hope You Become A Canadian Permanent Resident




When the six streams to allow 90,000 additional international graduates and essential workers to apply for permanent residence were introduced by Canada, no one could have guessed that one for international graduates would reach its cap of 40,000 applicants in just over 24 hours.


Obviously, many, maybe including you, could not submit their applications because they;


  • Did not have their English Language proficiency test result (IELTS or CELPIP) in hand or

  • Were not employed at the time the stream launched or

  • Could not get a job letter from their employers or

  • Could not submit their payment receipt due to a technical issue some had on May 6 and 7


But stay positive!


There is hope that Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) accepts more applications under this stream to compensate for the refusals. Not everyone who has submitted their applications will meet IRCC’s criteria. That’s great news for other applicants who, for any reason, could not apply on May 6 or 7.


Also, if the number of applicants under the English-speaking essential worker streams does not reach its quota, there is the possibility that IRCC will allocate those spots to the international graduate stream.


So, do not lose hope and do your best to prepare all the documents needed for this stream so in case IRCC decides to launch the stream again or raise the cap, you are completely ready to submit your application.
