What to expect from Canadian Immigration in 2022

On December 16, 2021, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sent a letter to the new Minister of Immigration indicating the following priorities:

-> Reduce processing time
Improve application processing and decrease overall processing times, including handling application delays affected by the pandemic; The department spent more than CAD $15 million in overtime for its employees to work in this portfolio between April and October 2021.

-> Develop more permanent residency pathways for international students and temporary workers through express entry.

-> Improve existing pilot programs to regularize the status of undocumented Canadian workers.

-> Family Reunification - Establish an online application pathway for family reunification and implement a temporary residency facilitation program for spouses and children abroad while they await the processing of their permanent residency requests

-> Produce a new Municipal Immigration program - MNP
The purpose of the MNP is to assist and promote the wider distribution of immigration across Canada. It was originally drafted as a priority after the 2019 elections but was delayed due to the pandemic.

-> Promote a wider distribution of immigration across Canada and support immigration in small and medium-sized communities

-> Eliminate Canadian citizenship application fee

-> Launch a reliable system for companies to hire international workers and improve the Global Talent Stream, facilitating the renewal of work permits and maintaining the two-week processing standard, in addition to defining an employer support hotline

-> Support Francophone immigration
continue working with Quebec to support the expansion of French-speaking immigrants in Quebec and also continue to promote the national Francophone immigration strategy.

Another expected update is the implementation of new NOC Codes in 2022. This update will be known as the National Occupational Classification (NOC) 2021, which is the date when the review took place.
