Default New PM and effects on IEC visa FSW PR candidates

Hi,

I saw another thread on a different page that Justin Trudeau being elected will have impact on immigration to Canada. I saw that it seems like it will be good for family immigration. I am just wondering if it will impact people applying for PR from having an IEC working Holiday visa? There was comments made on some credit set up but not sure what that meant?!

Thanks for any help on this!

He wasn't appointed, he was elected. There is a difference.

Don't think anyone really knows at this point. My understanding is that immigration wasn't a top priority during the campaign

The points that were included in the Liberal platform didn't touch IEC anyway, they looked at other streams. Nothing has been said about IEC yet so it's really just a wait and see situation.

One policy is that they will revert back to the original timescales for citizenship. Basically time on an IEC/TWP will count towards getting citizenship. (I.e two year IEC will give you 1 year towards citizenship)

I did also hear that they are planning on making it easier for Temp workers to go through PR but we will wait and see

As long as the EE points don't go up again and come back down to 450, I don't really care right now.

Manifesto promises though can and have been different in the past so no point guessing until legislation is tabled etc etc

If they promise it, they should see it through. I think it was dumb Harper got rid of it in the first place.

I will be annoyed if they don't follow through on this one

So how does that work for PR then with the 2 years IEC counting for 1 year for citizenship because as I understand you need PR first?

Yeah you have to have PR before you can get citizenship but it would mean the time would not start from when you land as a PR (this is what it currently is as nothing prior to PR will count).

Before anytime prior to PR as Temp worker in the country was counted but only half. So 2 year IEC would be 1 year towards citizenship after you have PR so effectively you get to apply for citizenship quicker.

Aah okay. Thanks very much beckiwoo. I am still in the process of trying to get PR for now so that will hopefully come in handy if I get it. Have my language test on Saturday even though I have spoken English my whole life haha!
