Program delivery update: Subsequent temporary public policy to continue to facilitate access to permanent resident status for out-of-status construction workers in the Greater Toronto Area

This section contains policy, procedures and guidance used by IRCC staff. It is posted on the department’s website as a courtesy to stakeholders.

February 10, 2023

The Temporary Public Policy for Out-of-Status Construction Workers in the GTA was implemented on January 2, 2020. It has been extended until January 2, 2024, or once 1,000 principal applicants (including their accompanying family members) have been granted permanent residence, whichever comes first.

The PDI updates reflect the increased cap and end date of this new public policy.
