The temporary resident to permanent resident pathway is a limited-time pathway to permanent residence. It is for certain temporary residents who are currently working in Canada and their families. You may be eligible for permanent residence if you recently graduated from a Canadian post-secondary institution.
Serving communities and individuals who have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic, including Black and racialized youth, the program will place particular emphasis on youth who have dropped out of school or who are at risk of dropping out.
Youth will receive ongoing mentorship, peer support, and other supports to obtain a summer job placement while they enroll and complete at least one summer credit course.

Dear Parents, Guardians, Caregivers, and Students,
For more than a year now, COVID-19 has dominated the globe, including here in Toronto. But the devastation unfolding in India right now, as a result of the pandemic, is incomprehensible as the virus ravages the world’s second most populous country.
Our hearts and thoughts are with our South Asian students, staff and families who are disproportionately impacted by this crisis that is seeing record infections and deaths during this frightening third wave surge. I have no doubt that being so far away from family and friends is distressing and frightening. Please know that we see you and we are here to support you in any way we can.
Below is a list of resources and services you can access. Please join our Virtual Office Hours to speak with someone from our mental health and well-being team or connect with your child’s school who may help offer some grace during this challenging time.
We hope that through the support of our global community, including Canada’s contribution of urgent medical aid, India is able to recover from this humanitarian crisis. Our TDSB community stands with you and grieves with you for all that we have lost this year as a community.
Alexander Brown Karen Falconer
Chair of the Board Interim Director of Education
