On June 8, 2022, the Government of Canada published an update regarding the new public policy on issuing open work permits under the temporary resident to permanent resident pathway (TR2PR). The temporary public policy that was signed on July 4, 2021, became effective on June 6, 2022. The new public policy will allow the government to issue open work permits until December 31, 2024, and avoid the need for renewals, as well as expand the eligibility criteria for eligible family members abroad to help speed up family reunification.
