Canada introduces new policy for Hong Kong PR Applicants

Starting from May 27, 2024, applicants for the Hong Kong permanent residency pathway can extend their status and acquire an open work permit for up to three years while awaiting their decision on permanent residency in Canada.

This new policy was announced by Immigration Minister, Marc Miller, yesterday May 7, 2024.

Hong Kong nationals in Canada seeking permanent residence through the temporary public policy for Hong Kong residents, either under Stream A (in-Canada graduates) or Stream B (Canadian work experience), and who have held a study or work permit within the three years prior to their permanent residence application submission to IRCC, will be eligible for open work permits.

Under this public policy, applicants can restore their temporary status concurrently if it expired within 90 days before applying for a new open work permit.

The new public policy will remain active for five years, enabling candidates to work in Canada while their permanent residency application is being reviewed.
