Canada updated the amount for proof of funds for skilled immigrants
On July 5, 2021, the Government of Canada updated the minimum amount that is required for skilled immigrants to prove in order to immigrate and settle in Canada. Applicants who need to update settlement fund numbers in their Express Entry profiles must update the number of funds no later than July 15, 2021. Applicants of the Federal Skilled Worker Program and Federal Skilled Trades Program must indicate proof of funds to meet the minimum requirements. To calculate the amount of money, applicants must include themselves and their family members.
Canada implemented new regulations for PR applicants
Permanent residence applicants applying outside of Canada need a permanent resident travel document (PRTD) to travel to Canada. According to the immigration department’s website, if the Visa Application Centres are closed in the territory where applicants live, they can submit their PRTD application by email. Canada’s Visa Application Centre in China recently announced on its official website that starting June 1, 2021, applicants for a PRTD need to submit their application to IRCC by email. The grace period for this process was one month, so PRTD applicants can no longer submit their applications through the Visa Application Centre as of July 1, 2021.

Some francophone immigrants leave Quebec for other provinces
Some francophone immigrants leave Quebec to settle in other provinces as a result of application processing delays. They choose to take advantage of the new immigration pathways launched by Ottawa that allow up French-speaking essential workers and international students to settle in provinces other than Quebec. Instead of waiting over three years to be accepted as a permanent resident, as is the case of Quebec, French-speaking immigrants eligible for the federal program only have to wait six months to be accepted into the new pathways. Currently, more than 51,000 applicants are awaiting permanent residency in Quebec.
