“Earlier this year, we announced that we will welcome 15,000 migrants on a humanitarian basis from the Western Hemisphere. We are providing a path to economic opportunities to help address forced displacement, as an alternative to irregular migration. Through this initiative, we are providing regular migration pathways to people in the Americas by leveraging permanent resident humanitarian and economic pathways, and temporary work programs.

“We are welcoming an additional 4,000 temporary foreign workers from the region this year, many of whom have already arrived in Canada. Based on current trends, we are on track to meet this target. In addition, we are connecting with non-governmental organizations in the region to leverage the new Economic Mobility Pathways Pilot, which helps skilled refugees and other displaced people immigrate to Canada.
