Minister Mendicino & FCFA President Roy invited French-speaking temporary residents to apply for PR
On July 12, 2021, Marco E. L. Mendicino, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, and Liane Roy, President of the Federation des communautes francophones et acadienne, called French-speaking temporary residents in Canada to take advantage of the recently launched temporary pathway to permanent residence (PR).
IRCC will accept applications from French-speaking or bilingual candidates who intend to live outside of Quebec, under three streams. To support Canada’s objectives for Francophone immigration, these streams for French-speaking or bilingual candidates have no limit to the number of applications that can be received.
These public policies came into effect on May 6, 2021, and will continue until November 5, 2021.
