According to the report by Statistics Canada, the number of temporary foreign workers, who extend their stay in Canada, is growing. Those immigrants tend to not only apply for a longer stay/work but also obtain permanent residence in Canada. This tendency has increased even more among the recent arrivals.
However, the fair conclusion of the study also expresses the idea that “The duration and type of stay of TFWs in Canada are strongly restricted by the regulations governing their work permit terms.” Therefore, we keep reminding to all the immigrants, who want to come to Canada for work: if you want to work as a temporary foreign worker, a job offer from the Canadian employer is required! Exceptions might take place only if you are obtaining permanent residence principally through the Express Entry system.
There are a bunch of programs helping temporary foreign workers make a transition to permanent residence. However, every case is unique, and we strongly recommend paying attention to the details. The best thing you can do to secure your case is to ask for a legal advice from licensed immigration expert, who will assess your situation and help you with your pathway to PR.
Canada is one of the best-educated countries in the world, and immigrants are playing the crucial role in this tendency. There have been a lot of research and reports, based on how the children of immigrants are doing in terms of their educational and economic outcomes. According to The Immigration Department report, 36% of the children of immigrants (25-35 y.o.) hold university degrees, while their peers with Canadian-born parents make just 24%.
“The educational attainment of the parents' matters; children with highly educated parents are more likely to be highly educated themselves. And immigrant parents in Canada tend to have higher levels of educational attainment than Canadian-born parents,” said the report by researcher Garnett Picot for the department’s research and evaluation unit.
This tendency might be based on the parents’ expectations regarding education. Immigrant families, especially Asian, tend to have higher expectations for their kids in terms of education matters, than families with Canadian-born parents. As a result, the children of immigrants have higher educational attainment and more chances to be in professional occupations, rather than their peers of Canadian-born parents.
