Canadian government implements new measures to support Iranian residents in extending their Temporary Visas

The Canadian government is stepping up to support Iranians in Canada by implementing special measures to make it easier for them to stay. Effective from March 1, 2023, for one year, new measures will be introduced to simplify the process for Iranians who are visiting, studying, or working in Canada to extend their stay and switch between temporary streams. Additionally, an open work permit pathway will be introduced for Iranians already in Canada.

The Canadian government will also waive processing fees for Iranians who wish to extend their stay and for Canadian citizens and permanent residents in Iran who wish to come back. This initiative is a part of the government’s ongoing effort to support Iranians following the recent unrest in the country.

Natural Resources Minister Jonathan Wilkinson made the announcement, acknowledging the gross and systemic human rights violations happening in Iran. He stated that some Iranians in Canada are rightly concerned about returning home at this time.

At our fingertips is the power to make a difference in the lives of Iranians in Canada. We urge all Canadians to support the government’s efforts and spread the word to anyone who might benefit from this news. Further information about applying for the new measures available on the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada website.
