Canada’s new path way for International Graduate stream reaches cap

The 40,000 application cap for international graduates under Canada’s new pathway to permanent residence was surpassed on Friday. The international graduate stream quota was filled just over 24 hours after it opened at noon on Thursday.

Other streams for healthcare workers (20,000 application places) and other non-essential workers (30,000 application places) are still open, with tens of thousands of spots available.

The lannch of new pathway  went smoothly, despite some users having problems with the online payment system, which may have reduced the amount of applications received.

The application window will be available until November 5, or until the quotas are met, whichever comes first.
