On June 12, 2023, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) announced today that Canada has launched two new EMPP streams. One is tailored to candidates who have a job offer from a Canadian employer and the second is available to highly-skilled refugees without job offers. Candidates can also continue to apply through existing regional EMPP economic pathways.
Newcomers using the EMPP can now move to Canada and start working here more quickly. These new streams reduce barriers to access since candidates do not need Canadian work experience to apply.
You can find more information on the two new EMPP streams below:
