Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada announced Thursday that the special immigration pathway for recent graduates and skilled workers from Hong Kong will officially open on Feb. 8, 2021-from that date, Hong Kong residents will be able to apply for new open work permits.
People from Hong Kong will be able to apply for an up to three-year open work permit, which allows holders to enter Canada without an invitation from an employer and to stay in the country while they look for work.
“The ties that bind Canada and Hong Kong run deep,” a spokesperson for the IRCC commented for NCM. “The first Hong Kongers arrived here over 150 years ago, contributing immensely to Canada’s economic, social and political life.”
