As declared by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Friday the detainment and the mobilization of the health care workers from abroad countries have been given the priority for Canadian immigration.
Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Minister Marco Mendicino, the Canadian prime minister in the mandate letter specify the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic as one of the dangerous health crises ever faced by the country.

Immigrants Working in Healthcare To Have More Paths To Permanent Residency

It’s mainly for those who have regularly provided the health care facilities in the long-term care homes or medical and performed many other essential services during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Ottawa’s initiative for making things easy for the immigration with the healthcare experience comes in the wake of several of Canada’s provincial governments utilizing the Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP) to expand their health care sectors.
Prince Edward Island utilizes its PNP last spring to issue invitations for the essential workers in the healthcare, and the trucking industries is one of the examples of that trend. Nova Scotia one of Canada’s provinces did precisely the same thing, organizing new draws aimed at nurses through the express entry-linked Labor Market Priorities stream in May.

Now, the territory heath authority already had 13 doctors from the United States, United Kingdom, and South Africa who were restricted to arrive due to Canada’s travel restrictions.
