The IRCC (Immigration Refugee and Citizenship Canada) has released its Forward Regulatory Plan for next 2 years that includes key changes to be made in the immigration regulations. However, this forward regulatory plan is not fixed and can be updated and upgraded over and again with time based on the IRCC operating environment. Let’s find out the key objectives of the FRP (Forward Regulatory Plan) of the express entry:
Changes to Conditional Permanent Residence for New Sponsored Spouses
At present, the spouses who have been sponsored to Canada, but are married for less than 2 years or have no children with the sponsoring partner, given conditional PR. IRCC is reviewing the rewiring this provision in view of its impact on vulnerable spouses.
Changes to the International Mobility Program
The IMP (International Mobility Program) is IRCC’s temporary foreign worker program. However, it is different from the TFW being operated by ESDC. It invites the LMIA exempt foreign individuals to meet the labour market, cultural and economic needs of Canada. The FRP recommends changes in IMP to eliminate diplomatic missions and few international entities from the employer adherence parameters.
Changes to the Definition of Dependent Child
IRCC recommends increasing the maximum age of a dependent child. At now, unmarried children aged 19 and below are allowed to be included on an application. While no new age is recommended as of now, the proposed changes in this regard aim to allow more immigrants to bring their children with them, and decrease the need for multiple applications within a family.
Changes to Business Immigration Programs
The Federal Immigrant Investor and Entrepreneur Programs ended in 2014 only hence the FRP now recommends removing these programs from the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations (IRPA).
Repeal of Live-in Caregiver Program
Repealing of the Live-In Caregiver Program was announced in 2014 by the then federal government. The two new programs- caring for Children Class and the Caring for People with High Medical Needs Class shall replace the caregiver program which will provide the pathway to PR in Canada as well. However, the people living in Canada on Live-in Caregiver Program may continue to be eligible for PR provided their work permit was based on LMIA and was requested before November 30, 2014.
Changes to Support the Expansion of Biometrics
A few changes to the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations (IRPR) are needed, in order to line it up with lawmaking amendments to the IRPA that permits the development of biometrics.
The other key Changes include:

Visas Avenue handled my application for Australian PR successfully. They are good in knowledge, well versed with the current procedure. Special Thanks to Mrigya Shah and Arpita Saha, they both were polite, professional and always gave answer to all my queries which helped me in managing the stress during the application process.
Visas Avenue proven to be good consultant when it s regarding processing my Canadian pr. To me they were professional and I’m completely satisfied with the accountability they have shown in my case and follow ups they did for me. Rajeshwari.V is my Case Manager for Canada and she did an excellent job in explaining me the whole process/ documents needed and how/where to get them. Finally i got my pr exactly on/before the expected processing time. I knew the whole process and yet I took help of visas avenue as I wanted professionals to fail-proof my application and make sure it cause no extra unnecessary delays and that’s exactly what I got for them. Definitely recommended..!!

If you are looking for a Visa company who is fast, organized and very detailed oriented then you should get in touch with Visas Avenue Pvt. Ltd. Shivangi Arora was my case manager and she has a very good knowledge of the process. She was very prompt and diligent, she made sure that all the documents are provided on time so that the Immigration doesn t ask for anything at a later stage. I am really happy with their work as I have got my Australian PR because of them which is like a dream come true with 50 bands in each module in PTE test. I would definitely recommend them to all my friends and relatives who are looking forward for their visa processing. Keep doing the good job and making lives!!
I have been the client of Visas Avenue from past 1.5 years now and recently received the approval for Permanent Residency (PR) Canada. I must say that they are the finest bunch of dedicated professionals and probably the best in their domain. I visited them after receiving positive feedback from few of my friends & known. And I must say that I found their services exactly the same as I heard from my references.I was especially impressed by the way; my case manager (Ms Ruchika Sharma) went an extra mile whenever I asked her for help at every step, may it be related to the documents required, answering queries, LOI, online procedures, payments, etc.My Case officer & other support executives (Ms. Surbhi) were extremely helpful & professional throughout the visa process. At one point of time post many IELTS attempts I was unable to score CLB 9 & thereafter planned to drop the idea of immigrating to Canada but my case manager: Ms Ruchika Sharma was quite positive to convince me & gave vital advise to apply for Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP). In fact, she did it on my behalf and fortunately, I was nominated from the Ontario Province of Canada. It made my road to Canada lot easier as I subsequently, got Invite to apply for Canada PR, which wouldn’t have been possible without the sincere efforts of this hardworking professional team @ Visas Avenue. Thanks for making my wish come true.Best of Luck !!
Visas Avenue had to be the pathway I had to chose to sail through my PR process for Canada. I visited many agencies and with the way my initial queries were satisfactorily handled, I decided to move forward with their help. It has been a long journey and they have been thoroughly helpful and supportive in each and every phase of this process. Special Thanks to Gaurav Sharma - I disturbed him a lot with tons of millions of queries and doubts, but he remained calm, cooperative and fully knowledgeable to help me understand every nitty-gritty of the process. I will not hesitate in recommending Visas Avenue to any of my friends or acquaintances who wishes to apply for Canada PR application. Many Thanks once again Gaurav for your incredible support.
Very Professional Consultancy, which has actual meaningful escalation Matrix system for customers too. Without them I won t have been able to get PR simply because they put lots of effort for my PNP nomination. Special mentions to Mrigya Shah & Arpita Saha for their knowledgeable support, professional communication, support and efforts. Thanks a lot.
