Facts and Figures 2016: Immigration Overview - Temporary Residents – Annual IRCC Updates Facts and Figures 2016: Immigration Overview Temporary – Residents presents the annual intake of permit holders and refugee claimants from 1997 to 2016. The report also shows the total count of permit holders and asylum claimants with valid permit(s) in each calendar year and the total count of permit holders and asylum claimants as at December 31st of each year. The main body of the publication consists of a series of statistical tables and charts covering the ten-year period from 2007 to 2016. In Facts & Figures 2015 for Temporary Residents, numbers on International Mobility Program (IMP) Work Permit Holders for Work Purposes increased due to the moving of the Post-graduate Employment Work Permit Holders population from Work Permit Holders for Study Purposes to Work Permit Holders for Work Purposes under the International Mobility Program. As a result of this, the Facts & Figures 2016 reports reflect a corresponding decrease in the number of Work Permit Holders for Study Purposes. These changes have been applied retroactively. The Post-Graduation Work Permit Program (PGWPP) allows students who have graduated from a participating Canadian post-secondary institution to gain valuable Canadian work experience. Skilled Canadian work experience gained through the PGWPP potentially helps graduates qualify for permanent residence in Canada through the Canadian Experience Class (CEC). Facts & Figures 2013 had previously counted those who held Post-Graduation Work Permits as Work Permit Holders for Study Purposes. However, Work Permit Holders for Study Purposes is a category for individuals who are primarily students and who are also allowed to get a work permit (e.g., Co-op students) because it is integral to their course of studies. To get a PGWP, in contrast, an individual must have ceased to be a student – it is a requirement that the individual must have graduated from their program. 2018-04-13 2018-05-22 Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada IRCC.REDDT-EDDDGRE.IRCC@cic.gc.ca PersonsIRCCCICCitizenship and Immigration CanadaImmigration Refugees and Citizenship CanadaTemporary ResidentTemporary ResidentsTFWPTemporary Foreign WorkerInternational Mobility ProgramIMPpermitpermitsworkersworkerimmigrationFacts and FiguresFFFacts & Figures2016FactsFigures 1.1.

Facts and Figures 2016: Immigration Overview - Temporary Residents – Annual IRCC Updates

Facts and Figures 2016: Immigration Overview Temporary – Residents presents the annual intake of permit holders and refugee claimants from 1997 to 2016.

The report also shows the total count of permit holders and asylum claimants with valid permit(s) in each calendar year and the total count of permit holders and asylum claimants as at December 31st of each year. The main body of the publication consists of a series of statistical tables and charts covering the ten-year period from 2007 to 2016.

In Facts & Figures 2015 for Temporary Residents, numbers on International Mobility Program (IMP) Work Permit Holders for Work Purposes increased due to the moving of the Post-graduate Employment Work Permit Holders population from Work Permit Holders for Study Purposes to Work Permit Holders for Work Purposes under the International Mobility Program. As a result of this, the Facts & Figures 2016 reports reflect a corresponding decrease in the number of Work Permit Holders for Study Purposes. These changes have been applied retroactively.

The Post-Graduation Work Permit Program (PGWPP) allows students who have graduated from a participating Canadian post-secondary institution to gain valuable Canadian work experience. Skilled Canadian work experience gained through the PGWPP potentially helps graduates qualify for permanent residence in Canada through the Canadian Experience Class (CEC).

Facts & Figures 2013 had previously counted those who held Post-Graduation Work Permits as Work Permit Holders for Study Purposes. However, Work Permit Holders for Study Purposes is a category for individuals who are primarily students and who are also allowed to get a work permit (e.g., Co-op students) because it is integral to their course of studies. To get a PGWP, in contrast, an individual must have ceased to be a student – it is a requirement that the individual must have graduated from their program.
