    Plan Your Canada PR in 2023

    Last year, there were plenty of updates we have seen in Canada. The country was in a limelight due to such reasons as the lowest unemployment ratio in the world. On the other end, they were holding the highest vacancies as well. The immigration department has also made some significant changes in study visas, work visas and permanent residency rules. For instance, international students are now allowed to work full-time even during their studies, until and unless it should not bother their studies. Apart from this, the dependent spouses of some work permit holders were allowed to apply for further open work permits. Moreover, as far as Canada PR is concerned, all category draws were begun in the last year. The new TEER system has replaced the NOC Version 2016.
