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:

I had an excellent experience with Visas Avenue. Mr. Aditya from the Mumbai office, Mr. Nitin and my case manager Mr. Vijay Singh deserve a special mention. Visas Avenue made the entire Canada PR process look really simple. Huge credit to the team for their professionalism , regular updates and ability to handle critical situations effectively. Have recommended Visas Avenue to a lot of friends and will continue to do so!
The teams, people and process for VISA application at VISAs Avenue is worth appreciation. It was a time consuming process in my Case being a PNP applicant for Canada and I must say they really helped in getting Ontario province nomination. They know the exact stuff and what needs to be done in those cases. I want to thank Mr. Vijay and his team for their continued guidance and support in these 2 years. I would high recommend Visas Avenue for anyone wanting VISA assiatnce in New Delhi.
We first met Niranjan Kanade at their Mumbai branch and he was very professional which made us consider Visas Avenue to start with.I would like to thank my case manager Vijay Singh and his team (Nitin and Anjali) for the amazing service. My country of residence is currently Australia but despite of the time difference, I never felt like it is very difficult to communicate with them. They were always very prompt with their replies and made sure that all my doubts are cleared. Their documentation is so perfect that my application for PR got approved in just 3 months.They also keep following up with you from time-to-time which literally keeps you on your toes in terms of getting all our documents in place. I would certainly recommend Visas Avenue for anyone who is aspiring to become a Canadian Permanent Resident as their service is top class.
We have obtained our Canada PR (Express Entry) through Visas Avenue , Delhi and had a very pleasant experience with them. They are very professional and dedicated people. Our special compliments for Mr. Yatin Malhotra who was our case manager and his entire team. With his expertise and knowledge he lead our case to success within a short span which was even unexpected for us. His clear vision about every aspect of documentation made things easier for us. Moreover, at times when dilemma arises over any issue, he never hesitated in taking full responsibility for his decisions.He responded to our repeated queries over phone in very positive and polite manner and had taken personal pain to complete the whole process on time , keeping all deadlines into consideration. In addition, Ms. Shivani Mehra initially guided us properly that helped us build more confidence in Visas Avenue. Also Mr. Gaurav Arora, our case Co- Ordinator helped immensely to lead our case to success through his timely, systematic planning & support.Finally, I would like to conclude saying that Visas Avenue is worth every penny we spent and are very happy that now we are Permanent Residents of Canada.
A big thank you to the team assigned to my case. From gulabchand to kshama to jasmeet for starting the journey well with me, to Deepak and Amit for taking this long journey with me till date and lastly to Ruchika, who overlooked and spearheaded my journey from start to end. Thank you all coz this wouldn't be possible with out you all. Some of you have worked more on my case than others and I thank-you for bearing with us too. Apologies if I'm missing out on any names.
When we had a plan to immigrate to Canada I was very skeptical while choosing the right immigration consultants and i did a lot of research and finally made up my mind by reading good reviews of Visas Avenue. I feel i have taken the best decision and i am here today extremely happy as we received the PR in 5 months of time. They helped me with all the queries i had and explained each and every step in the process with utmost patience. I was very sure that my application was submitted in a perfect manner.I specially want to thank Vijay Singh, Nitin Varma and Anjali Sharma who made my dream come true. They really are the best consultants.Finally thank you very much for the entire Visas Avenue team.
