Canada: Which program delivered the most work permits?
Data shows that, in 2010 (the start of the reference period), TFWP work permits made up 174,876 or 32.9% of the total 531,700 issued. In this same period IMP work permits numbered 225,440 (42.4%). Comparing this with data from 2021, out of 963,400 issued work permits, TFWP issued permits numbered 145,473 (15.1%), while IMP work permits numbered 526,016 permits (54.6%) in the same year. Based on these findings, applicants for a work permit may likely see the most success pursuing work authorisation through the IMP, and more specifically through the “post-graduation employment” and “work permit for study purposes”.Source URL
