On March 12, 2019, the Government of Canada fulfilled its commitment to expanding the country's pathways for temporary foreign workers by allocating 2,000 additional permanent residency spaces under the Provincial Nominee Program. The Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) allows participating provinces and territories to nominate certain number of permanent residential economic immigration candidates.

In the news release on March 12, Honourable Ahmed Hussein, the Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, said that the additional 2,000 spaces are meant mainly for current long-term temporary foreign workers in the country who have intermediate skills categorized as National Occupation Code C, and have integrated into the country’s society.Honourable Ahmed Hussein remarked that temporary foreign workers fill the gap in the long-term market requirements and Contribute to growth in the economy. He also said the government recognizes the need to provide them with opportunities to gain permanent residence in Canada.

Canada's government is strongly committed to an immigration system that enhances the economic status of the country and contributes to the growth of large middle-class jobs.It is committed to giving foreign workers, especially those meeting long-term labour needs and who have integrated well into the Canadian society, additional pathways to becoming permanent residents.
The Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) said the extra spaces will also assist in addressing the issue of worker vulnerability. Canada has a Multi-Year Immigration Levels Plan which aims to admit 61,000 people for the Provincial Nominee Program, which is an increase of 6,000 admissions from 2018. The 2,000 additional spaces for temporary foreign work are speculated to be part of this targeted increase.
