CIIS – Bringing the best global education opportunities to your doorstep

When it comes to a country as wealthy as Canada, it’s hard to pick just one reason to choose it as your study abroad destination. Canada has one of the most positive attitudes towards international students in the developed world, which is further manifested in all the commendable efforts and measures it has taken to help them through the COVID-19 pandemic, including offering open work permits to former international students who hold or held a Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) and inviting them to apply for permanent residency by running Canadian Experience Class (CEC)-specific Express Entry draws .

2021 has been a year of nothing but good news for international students in Canada. On April 14, 2021, IRCC announced a time-limited Temporary Resident to Permanent Resident pathway (TR to PR pathway) for essential workers and international graduates already in Canada. A total of 40,000 recent graduates from Canadian post-secondary institutions have been offered an accelerated opportunity to become permanent residents through this pathway. The program reached its limit of 40,000 applications in just 25 hours after the portal opened.
