Most people haven’t realized that this ban is due to economic reasons rather than the pandemic
The

The signs are there, as lucid as daylight yet some people still choose to engage in self deceit. Whatever makes you sleep at night , please subscribe to it.
Should we take your word for it or the word from the one that put the restriction in the first. IRCC clearly stated reason is to protect its citizens from COVID-19 and its variant. Not ones did they mention economic reason(s). Prove me wrong.

I'm sure you guys remember the controversial decision Quebec made back in 2019 and canceled 18,000 immigration applications of people who were waiting even for years. How likely do you think it is for IRCC to do the same to this huge backlog of outland applicants since they are obviously changing their policies (for whatever reason) and moving towards giving PR status to students and people already working inside Canada?

Yes, they never spelled it out but economic issues are the direct result of the pandemic. As long as the covid is active and causes lockdowns, the government will have to pay unemployment or stimulus checks. And if the pure public health concerns are so dominant, why are they letting in thousands of students and residents' relatives?

Students bring billions of CAD per year largely via tuition fees and because of this the education institutions pressured the federal government. IRCC then made the exemption with the condition that the DLI must set up a quarantine facility which must be approved by its province.

Family category is because of the enormous pressure by the sponsors via their respective MPs who in turn brought their cases at the Parliament.

Unfortunately, economy category outland applicants have no one inside Canada to speak for them vigorously.

Thank you! So the ban is due to economic reasons. Otherwise, students and families can carry the virus too.

This is not to say the pandemic doesn't or didn't impact the job market. There's an impact but it is not so severe as people make it out. Yes, there are some industries that are severely destroyed such as travel, tourism, hospitality, etc... but others had little damage and mostly recovered. I say this based on my knowledge and experience in UAE and my home country. I cannot speak for Canada but I am assuming the trend is similar.

Omg! Where did I say that? Did you even read my post? The ban isn't for economic reasons at all. Did you even watch the PM press conference when it was first announced?

The total economic recovery will take years as many experts have said. The restriction is in place TO LIMIT the spread of COVID-19 in Canada. Even their official website says. Show me where they mentioned economic reason?

We can all choose to believe what we want. All this conjecture based on opinions alone is not helping anyone. The facts are out there for all to see, things ARE moving along, piecemeal though it may be. IRCC will process the backlogs as THEY see fit, nothing you or I can say/do to change that. If they have started processing your application then it WILL get processed one way or the other, a decision WILL be made based on the merit of your application alone!

We are in the endzone now, just relax and wait.

@nns14 no need to get riled up trying to convince anyone otherwise. You know what the facts are, you know what to expect. That's it. Just stay calm my friend.

Omg I just googled it , they cancelled applications for 100 000 individuals including dependents at the time , this is just crazy considering the possibility exists even if slightly as they have done it before, but back then applications were taking years to be processed.
Can anybody please guide me if a remedical is sent then does this means that eligibility is approved and when is pre arrival due also how far one is from ppr once remedical is done

I agree. While it’s scientifically plausible it would be discriminatory. In some countries owing to shortages everyone isn’t even eligible to get vaccinated. (e.g. India)
It's not exactly 'unethical' imo. Unlike the UK, where NHS records are subject to strict privacy laws, Indians (if vaccinated) should be able to provide proof via the CoWin app quite easily by visiting https://verify.cowin.gov.in/

I got vaccinated because they had excess stock a month back and it was apparently nearing expiry. Obviously, these things wouldn't be published in the news but it does happen quite frequently than one would imagine.

Do you guys think we can get PPR in 2021? I read somewhere that Canada's vaccination will be completed by year end 2021. After 2 years of waiting and the current employment situation do you think it is even worth going?

India, New Delhi, AOR - 29 Feb 2020, OINP, Outland, EE - Human Capital Priority Stream.

The whole plan is somewhat losing its relevance. I mean i started working on this idea around Feb 2019 and so many plans have been on hold ever since.

I really don’t get it why they have included post march 18, 2020 copr holders in the travel exemption but they are still issuing CoPR. it’s a joke really.
