Immigration minister announces plans for additional in-Canada immigration draws

On March 21, 2024, Immigration Minister Marc Miller announced plans to increase "domestic draws" for temporary residents in Canada seeking permanent residency. These draws refer to selection rounds, such as Express Entry programs, where candidates are chosen based on criteria like their Comprehensive Ranking System scores, professional experience, or French language skills. The announcement aims to relieve pressure on critical sectors like housing and healthcare by targeting candidates already residing in Canada. This change may result in more opportunities for temporary residents to secure PR, which is believed to improve immigration outcomes. The move is also a strategy to meet immigration targets without adding new entrants to the economy, alleviating pressure on key support sectors.
