2020年12月9日-渥太华-加拿大移民、难民和公民部部长门迪奇诺(Marco E. L. Mendicino)阁下认识到加拿大医护人员在整个大流行期间做出的巨大贡献和牺牲,今天宣布,2020年12月14日,加拿大移民、难民和公民部(IRCC)将开始接受在加拿大医护部门工作并为病人提供直接护理的难民申请人的永久居留申请。

2020年8月14日,Mendicino部长宣布政府打算实施这一特别措施。此后,政府制定了两项临时性公共政策–一项是针对居住在加拿大魁北克省以外的难民,另一项是针对居住在魁北克省的难民申请者。根据《加拿大-魁北克协定》,魁北克省全权负责挑选经济移民和安置到该省的难民。

在8月公布的资格标准基础上,并承认可能会有感染COVID-19的难民申请人随后去世,这些人的配偶和普通法伴侣如果在2020年8月14日前到达加拿大,也可以根据这项公共政策获得永久居留权。

此外,申请人的实习经历(包括带薪和无薪)也会被考虑,只要是指定职业之一的大专学习计划或职业培训计划的重要组成部分。作为指定职业之一的专业命令要求的一部分而进行的实习也将被考虑。

居住在加拿大各地(魁北克省以外)的申请人必须向IRCC提交永久居留申请。该部门将评估资格并确保符合受理要求。然后申请人可以获得永久居留权。

居住在魁北克省的申请人必须首先向IRCC提交永久居留申请。一旦IRCC确定他们符合要求,魁北克省移民、法语和融入部将在COVID-19期间验证申请人是否符合寻求庇护者特别计划的要求,并颁发魁北克省选择证书。一旦符合所有资格要求,IRCC将给予申请人永久居留权。

申请时间为2020年12月14日至2021年8月31日。主申请人的加拿大境内家庭成员可以列入申请中。所有申请人都需要满足现有的受理要求,包括与犯罪、安全和健康有关的要求。

IRCC announces opening date of special measures for refugee claimants working in health care during the pandemic

From: Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada

News release

December 9, 2020Ottawa—Recognizing the considerable contribution and sacrifice health-care workers have made in Canada throughout the pandemic, the Honourable Marco E. L. Mendicino, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, announced today that on December 14, 2020, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) will begin accepting applications for permanent residence from refugee claimants who work in Canada’s health-care sector and provide direct care to patients.

On August 14, 2020, Minister Mendicino announced the Government’s intention to implement this special measure. Two temporary public policies have since been developed—one for refugees living in Canada outside Quebec, and the other for refugee claimants residing in Quebec. Under the Canada-Quebec Accord, Quebec has sole responsibility for the selection of economic immigrants and resettled refugees destined to the province.

Further to the criteria to qualify announced in August, and in recognition that there may be refugee claimants who contracted COVID-19 and subsequently passed away, spouses and common-law partners of these individuals who are in Canada and arrived before August 14, 2020, may also be granted permanent residence under this public policy.

In addition, applicants’ internship experience (both paid and unpaid) will be considered, as long as it is an essential part of a post-secondary study program or vocational training program in one of the designated occupations. An internship performed as part of a professional order requirement in one of the designated occupations will also be considered.

To apply, applicants residing across Canada (outside Quebec) must submit an application for permanent residence to IRCC. The department will assess eligibility and ensure that admissibility requirements are met. Applicants may then be granted permanent residence.

Applicants residing in Quebec must first submit an application for permanent residence to IRCC. Once IRCC has determined they meet the requirements, the Ministère de l’Immigration, de la Francisation et de l’Intégration du Québec will validate whether the applicants meet the requirements under the Special program for asylum seekers during the COVID-19 period and will issue a Quebec Selection Certificate. IRCC will grant permanent residence to applicants once all eligibility requirements are met.

Applications will be accepted from December 14, 2020, until August 31, 2021. In-Canada family members of the principal applicant can be included on the application. All applicants will be required to meet existing admissibility requirements, including those related to criminality, security and health.

Quotes

“Today, we recognize the dedication of the many asylum seekers who have raised their hand to serve as we live through a unique and unprecedented situation. Canadians are appreciative of asylum seekers and the work they are doing during the pandemic. Thanks to this special measure, we are recognizing their significant contribution by providing them with a more secure future in Canada.”

—The Honourable Marco E. L. Mendicino, P.C., M.P., Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship

“The purpose of the special program for asylum seekers during the COVID-19 period is to recognize the exceptional contribution of asylum seekers who worked on the front line, with people who were sick and with our seniors, during the first wave of the health crisis. This program, which is a product of the collaboration between the government of Quebec and the federal government, will allow for these people to be selected and granted permanent residence, so they can continue their essential contribution to health care and integrate fully into Quebec society.”

—Nadine Girault, Minister of International Relations and La Francophonie, and Minister of Immigration, Francization and Integration of Quebec

“We welcome these special measures for refugee claimants who have stepped up to serve our communities during these unprecedented times. Together with our federal, provincial and territorial colleagues, we strive to support newcomers to participate and succeed within a welcoming Canadian society.”

—The Honourable Arlene Dunn, New Brunswick’s Minister Responsible for Immigration, and Provincial-Territorial Co-Chair of the Forum of Ministers Responsible for Immigration
