Canada Announces New Permanent Residence Pathway for Migrants from the Americas

As part of Canada’s commitment, earlier this year, to welcome 15,000 migrants from the Americas, Canada will welcome up to 11,000 Colombians, Haitians and Venezuelans through a new permanent residence pathway.

  • Starting this fall, Colombian, Haitian and Venezuelan nationals located in Central or South America or the Caribbean who have extended family connections in Canada will be eligible to apply for this new pathway.
  • To qualify, the principal applicant must be a child (regardless of age), grandchild, spouse, common-law partners, parent, grandparent or sibling of a Canadian citizen or permanent resident.

Successful applicants will be offered enhanced pre-arrival services, including an employment skills assessment and a referral to a settlement provider organization in their intended community. More detailed information will be available closer to the launch of the new pathway.
