Jan 2, 2019

New instructions have been created following the Temporary Public Policy for Out-of-Status Construction Workers in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). The public policy is designed to offer a temporary residence to permanent residence pathway for a group of construction workers, and their families, in the GTA. This 2-year public policy, in effect until January 1, 2022, aims to recognize the contributions construction workers in the GTA have made to the Canadian economy and regularize individuals who have fallen out of status by providing them with access to temporary resident status during the processing of their permanent residence application.
