Education No Longer Required: Easy Immigration for Hong Kong Residents

Canada reaffirms its commitment to standing by Hong Kong residents and supporting their freedom and democracy. Since 2021, Canada has been providing dedicated immigration pathways for Hong Kongers, and the country remains committed to improving these pathways to make it easier for them to establish long-term residency in Canada.

Removal of Education Requirement in Canadian Work Experience Stream

Under the new amendment, Hong Kong residents with Canadian work experience (Stream B) will no longer be restricted by their education status when applying for permanent residence. The removal of the education requirement streamlines the application process, eliminating the need to provide proof of education. This recent alteration aligns with the recent extension and expansion of open work permits for Hong Kong residents, easing their progression from temporary to permanent residency. This change complements the recent for Hong Kong residents, facilitating their transition from temporary to permanent residency. This change will take effect on August 15, 2023.

A Beacon of Hope and Opportunity

As the August 15, 2023 implementation date approaches, Hong Kongers with Canadian work experience can look forward to more accessible and streamlined pathways to permanent residence in Canada. These positive developments reinforce Canada’s position as a beacon of hope and opportunity for those seeking freedom and a better future.
