IRCC Minister, Sean Fraser said the government is preparing to create a new pathway for TR to PR. This program would help to speed up the process of turning newcomers in Canada under temporary permits into permanent residents.
Furthermore, he said the new program won’t be similar to the last year’s TR to PR pathway. Adding to it he said, the new program will be more of a permanent pathway for temporary residents in Canada.
This will give a clear path to Canada aspirants planning to come as temporary residents. Also, he said he’s working under a tight 120-day timeline established by the motion 44 approved in House of Commons in May 2022.
A motion 44 Permanent Residency (PR) for Temporary Foreign Workers was agreed upon by the majority in House of Commons on May 11, 2022. The motion was initiated on January 31, 2022 by Randeep Sarai by placing a notice to House of Commons (lower house of the Parliament of Canada).
This motion asked for pathways to permanent residency for temporary foreign workers, including international students, with significant Canadian work experience in sectors with persistent labour shortages.

This was revealed by IRCC Minister in an interview to Radio-Canada. He said “We are looking right now at the best path forward to create a permanent pathway for temporary residents.”
“That actually puts me on a clock to come up with a framework to establish this new permanent residency pathway, not just for international students, but also for temporary foreign workers,” he said.
Further, he said that “We’re in the depths of planning the policy so we can have a policy that’s not driven by a need to respond urgently in the face of an emergency. but actually to have a permanent pathway that provides a clear path for those seeking permanent residency who can enter Canada.”
This is a good indication that Liberal government is working in the direction of motion 44. If IRCC finalizes the details keeping in consideration 120 days deadline, then we may hear a plan on new pathway for temporary residents to get permanent residency in Canada by Fall 2022.
