Motion 44 Update – On September 20, 2022 all the motion 44 expectants hit a dead end, but it is not true. It seems like we have been calculating the days incorrectly with false high expectations. We came across Member of Parliament, Randeep Sarai’s interview where he disclosed the answers to motion 44 and TR to PR.
Watch out the video interview in the later part of this article in Punjabi.
Randeep Sarai, Member of Parliament from Surrey, British Columbia who bought forward motion 44 clarified that 120-day deadline only counts sitting days of parliament. Motion 44 received assent on May 11, 2022.
So, accordingly 120 days will complete by April-September 2023 as per the House of Commons Sitting Calendar. However, IRCC Minister Sean Fraser is quite confident and committed in implementing motion 44 prior to that.

Randeep said they had a very good discussion with IRCC Minister, Sean Fraser. Furthermore, he explained that there are multiple steps before Minister Fraser can implement the motion 44.
IRCC Minister will have to work on increasing the annual permanent residents target to accommodate provisions of motion 44. Additionally, Sean Fraser will have to make different classes so that every provision of the motion is included.
Moreover, IRCC Minister also showed a lot of confidence that they will start implementing all the aspects of motion 44 in coming 1-2 months. MP Sarai said that we will start seeing opening of pathways for everyone.
Giving an example for understanding purpose, he indicated that IRCC Minister may make a program first for truckers or TR to PR program. Then, he may make ongoing program for temporary residents who have low English proficiency, but more work experience in Canada.
Adding to it, Sarai said Minister Fraser is still figuring out the above mentioned sequence, but he is confident enough to implement it to the earliest. Randeep said we will start seeing the implementation of motion 44 before the end of 2022.
Providing more context, Surrey MP said there has already been a cabinet meeting before the ongoing fall session in Vancouver. The cabinet will now decide how much annual target for permanent residents they can increase. Currently, annual target for PRs is 434,000 this year.
MP also said that it is a very big step for IRCC Minister to make the system efficient and fast, given that there is log of backlog due to COVID. However, Sean Fraser is quite determined to do so.
The interview was in Punjabi, so we posted this article in English for better understanding.
Talking about the confidence, MP Sarai said that they have full planned commitment to ensure that all the hard working and law abiding temporary foreign workers, definitely have a pathway to permanent residency.
He also spoke to permanent residency of undocumented foreign workers. MP said that after implementing the motion 44, PR for undocumented foreign workers will be the second step.
It is difficult to determine how many workers are undocumented. Some say there are 500,000 while the others say 100,000-200,000. So, it is complicated to bring them in the system is next challenge.
So, keep your hopes intact and fingers crossed for surprises from IRCC by end of this year or beginning of next year. But, if you can be eligible for any of the existing programs, then you should not wait for any TR to PR pathway. Start working towards the existing options by honing your skills.
What Could Be The New TR to PR?
Everyone is expecting new TR to PR pathway similar to the one we had in pandemic. However, new TR to PR option could be giving more weightage to the applicants having significant experience in Canada.
When we talk about TR to PR, it means pathway to permanent residency for temporary residents in Canada.
Furthermore, we anticipate that it will be having a set quota annually and there could be scoring based on years of experience in-Canada especially sectors with labour shortage.
How To Prepare and verify documents for new TR to PR
It serves no purpose to speculate on the new pathway’s eligibility conditions. If you want to know if you qualify for PR through the new pathway, there is nothing you can do but wait for the official announcement.
Instead, you can make up this time by double-checking and update your documents. For example, you can check for the following:
- Are you a legal resident of Canada?
- Do you have copies of all your permits?
- Your language tests are valid?
- Education documents (official degrees, transcripts, graduation letter)
- Reference letters (letter from employer(s))
If you hold a foreign degree, check for the Educational Credentials Assessment. Did you complete the Educational Credentials Assessment? If yes, will it continue to be valid throughout the PR process?
It’s crucial to have valid documents, from valid passports to language and medical tests. To avoid any issues in the PR procedure, ensure that all your documents are valid.
Determine Any Potential Drawbacks
It takes more than just filling out applications and waiting for the Invitation to Apply to become a permanent resident of Canada. Your profile can contain issues or problems, so go through the existing PR forms to get an idea of the forms. As well as familiarize yourself with the process to avoid any errors.
Try to identify potential difficulties and take corrective measures. For example, ensure that you have work reference letters, which include your job duties, salary, employment duration, etc.
Double-check your current (and previous permits), along with your official transcripts, degree or diploma and take remedial if it has expired.
Be ready for a rapid application process
The “TR to PR” pathway featured a first-come, first-served application process when it was introduced in 2021. Unfortunately, it meant being qualified to apply was insufficient. Additionally, you had to submit your application before reaching the pathway’s application cap.
Therefore, it would help if you were prepared for highly shortened application timelines since the new pathway may also have such an application system.
How quickly can you apply?
Can you submit your completed application and all required evidence and documents tomorrow if the pathway were to be published today? If not, this is the benchmark you need to aim for.
The best way to guarantee that you don’t miss out on the new pathways is to have all the required paperwork and information on hand to submit your application as soon as possible.
It requires that you have a thorough understanding of your profile and all of its components. Remember that you could miss this chance with even the slightest error.
This new pathway should be high on your list of priorities if you want to take advantage of this opportunity.
The nicest part about getting your file ready is that even if you don’t become a permanent resident through the new pathway, you will still be ready for ITAs through the PNP or Express Entry streams.
