In May, within the first day of launching the temporary residence to permanent residence (TR to PR) program, Canada reached its intake cap of 40,000 international student graduates. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) got significantly more applications than intended for International Graduates Stream. Due to a technical error, IRCC received 7,307 additional applications. Following the technical error in the system, Immigration Minister Marco Mendicino approved a temporary public policy on June 28, allowing for the 7,307 applications to be processed.
