In an announcement in Ottawa today, the Honourable Ahmed Hussen, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, stated that;
• An additional 2,000 National Occupation Code C spaces will provide a net increase in the number of Temporary Foreign Workers already in Canada who transition to permanent residence under the Provincial Nominee Program. • The additional 2,000 spaces will help meet regional labour market needs in key sectors, as determined by provinces and territories. • The additional spaces will not prevent IRCC’s progress in decreasing processing times overall for the Provincial Nominee Program. • Under the Provincial Nominee Program, participating provinces and territories nominate foreign nationals whom they believe will meet particular regional labour market and/or economic development needs and who intend to settle in their province. • Provinces and territories are primarily responsible for the design, management and evaluation of their respective provincial nominee programs.
