IRCC Plans Changes to PGWP, LMIA, Work Permits & PR

In today’s blog update, we’ll be navigating the future via the Updates on Canada’s Immigration Policies for 2024.

Revised Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) Enhances Labor Market Alignment

The Canadian government is set to revise the Post-Graduation Work Permit program, targeting a more strategic alignment with labor market demands. By tailoring work permit durations to specific fields of study, the initiative aims to address skill shortages in critical sectors like healthcare, technology, and skilled trades. This targeted approach not only benefits the Canadian economy by ensuring that international graduates contribute effectively but also improves their prospects for successful long-term integration.

Increased Scrutiny in Labor Market Impact Assessments (LMIA)

The Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) plans to intensify scrutiny of the LMIA process to combat fraudulent practices and maintain the integrity of the immigration system. This includes stricter regulatory measures and extended processing timelines to ensure that employment offers are legitimate and truly necessary for foreign workers. Such changes underscore Canada’s commitment to a fair and transparent immigration process that protects both Canadian workers and prospective immigrants.

Reforms to Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP)

Amid broader reforms, the TFWP is being recalibrated to balance temporary and permanent immigration streams. The IRCC’s proposed reforms aim to reduce reliance on temporary foreign workers by promoting the integration of permanent residents, thus supporting long-term economic growth. By focusing on domestic talent development and reducing temporary labor dependency, these changes are designed to close skill gaps and enhance sustainable economic development.

Continuity and Innovation in Key Immigration Programs

Canada continues to invest in crucial immigration programs like the Home Support Worker Program and the Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot. These programs are vital for meeting diverse labor market needs and promoting regional economic development. By ensuring their effectiveness and continuity, the IRCC reinforces its dedication to building a resilient and inclusive immigration system that supports Canada’s aging population and revitalizes rural economies.


As Canada refines its immigration strategies, staying informed about these changes is crucial for anyone looking to navigate the complexities of moving to Canada, whether as a student, worker, or permanent resident.
