Updated: Temporary public policy to further facilitate access to permanent resident status for out-of-status construction workers in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA)
On January 2, 2020, the Temporary Public Policy for Out-of-Status Construction Workers in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) was implemented. That public policy was developed to recognize the economic contribution of long-term resident construction workers and has sought to regularize individuals who have been contributing to the Canadian economy by filling a regional labour market need. At the same time, that public policy was addressing the vulnerable position of these workers due to their lack of immigration status. This temporary public policy has the same objectives and will further facilitate access to permanent resident status for 500 construction workers in the GTA plus their family members (the 500 application cap includes the principal applicants whose applications have already been approved under the Temporary Public Policy for Out-of-Status Construction Workers in the GTA).
