Canada: Government Announces New Federal Immigration Pathway Under the Economic Mobility Pathways Pilot
March 30, 2023
The Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship has announced a further expansion of the Economic Mobility Pathways Pilot (EMPP), with the creation of a new federal immigration pathway expected to open in the summer of 2023. Under the new federal pathway, employers in Canada will be able to hire refugees and other displaced individuals who qualify under any National Occupation Classification category, including nurse aides, personal support workers, long-term care aides, software engineers, web designers, mechanical and electrical engineers and technicians, teachers, tourism and hospitality workers, and truck and delivery service drivers. The new pathway will include a streamlined application process and shorter processing times. The EMPP is a complementary permanent residence pathway through which organizations such as Talent Beyond Boundaries help skilled refugees located overseas connect with Canadian employers to fill critical labor shortages. Fragomen will report on the program’s details as they are announced.
