This new pathway will be available in 2021, and criteria will include minimum language and education levels and 1 year of work experience in Canada.
The government will also expedite study permit applications for those who want to study in Canada.

HOW CAN US CITIZENS IMMIGRATE TO CANADA IN 2022?
After the Supreme Court limited women's access to abortion, many people were furious and afraid in the United States, and many American citizens thought about leaving the country. Canada might be an appealing alternative for these individuals because the number of American immigrants in the country has increased dramatically since Trump took office, except for his third year in office.
The number of American immigrants in Canada has increased by 42% since 2015. The growth rate is even higher for American citizens under the age of 35. From 2015 to prior to the pandemic, 46,960 American citizens became Canadian permanent residents.
