To address the labour market shortage, IRCC will expand the eligibility to all skills levels 0, A, B, C, and D (Teer 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5). This change is temporary for two years, starting from January 2023. It will be a phased approach.
- Phase 1 will be for workers whose salary is higher than the median wage of the province or who got their work permit under the International Mobility Program.
Phase 2 aims to expand the eligibility criteria for people with wages less than the median wage of the province
Phase 3 will expand the eligibility criteria for family members of agricultural workers.
