Online Degree Graduates Eligible for PR in Canada

The Canadian Government has elected to relax it’s rules in relation to Permanent Residency eligibility criteria through the Express Entry system. This will represent a major boost for thousands of International students.

The relaxed rules will see International students who were enrolled in Canadian universities but had to complete their programs online as a result of the pandemic, now become eligible for Canadian educational credential points.

Previously, having an online education from a Canadian institution did not count for Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points if it accounts for more than 50% of the programme.

Exporess Entry candidates, according to a new Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) update, are now eligible for Canadian educational credential points for programs completed online between March 2020 and August 2022.
