Do you know what a motion is and what motion 44 is about?
First we want to start by commenting that it is a motion, it is a proposal moved by a member of the House. A motion is passed if it receives the support of a majority of the deputies. Each motion, once passed, becomes an order or a resolution of the House.
Now we will explain what motion 44 is all about. On May 11, 2022, motion 44, better known as "Permanent Residence for Temporary Foreign Workers", was passed. It refers to the fact that temporary foreign workers will be able to open their way to permanent residence in Canada.
Motion 44 is for permanent residency for temporary foreign workers in Canada and will expand immigration opportunities for many people. By passing the motion, workers of all skill levels will be able to meet the broad spectrum of labor needs and will be able to obtain permanent residency, including international students, with significant Canadian work experience in sectors with persistent labor shortages.
While details are not yet available, the text of M-44 makes it clear that the new program will seek to target those with Canadian work experience in health services, caregiving, agriculture, manufacturing, service industry, trades and transportation.
At this time, it is unknown what Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) will use as the basis for "significant Canadian work experience". Looking at last year's temporary resident to permanent resident pathway, certain applicants are required to have 1 year of work experience (at least 1,560 hours) in the last 3 years. Recent international graduates only had to be employed at the time of their application.
At this time, TEER codes have not yet been specified. The previous pathway from temporary to permanent residents focused on health services, care, agriculture, manufacturing, service industry, trades and transportation as well.
