Pathways to Permanent Residency in Canada

In recent years, the Canadian government has made major policy changes to the pathway to permanent residency in Canada. How have these changes impacted international students and other applicants seeking to stay?

Come and hear Elizabeth Long, an immigration lawyer with Long Mangalji LLP, speak on her previous year working with PR applicants and her critical reflection on the efficacy of the Express Entry System in meeting Canada’s demand for skilled immigrants. She will focus on how the latest immigration policies affect international students pursuing permanent residency status.

*Please note: Elizabeth will not be able to address individual cases for permanent residency application in detail.
