Construction Workers in Toronto Can Apply for Canada PR from 3rd Sept | Updated: 04 Sep 2019

Apply for Canada PR
Construction workers who are having Out of status in the Greater Toronto Area can begin the process of appealing for Canada PR as of 3 September 2019.

The latest Temporary Federal Policy for Construction Workers with Out-of-Status in the GTA needs applicants to first appeal to the Canadian Labor Congress (C.L.C). The Canadian Labor Congress will then refer qualified candidates and along with their family members to Refugees, Immigration, and Citizenship Canada (I.R.C.C).

Applications started on the website of CLC on 3 September 2019. The Refugees, Immigration, and Citizenship Canada will start allowing applications referred by the C.L.C on 2 January 2020.

The Temporary Public Policy was published in July 2019 to offer a possibility to construction workers along with their families who originally arrived in Canada on a temporary work permit, but abandoned their status.

This policy is also intended to help to address labor shortages in the industry of construction in this region.
