U.S. Visa Holder criteria
To align with changes to Canada’s immigration system, the U.S. Visa Holder category of the AINP was permanently closed on April 30, 2013. This category was suspended on August 23, 2010 to allow the program to focus on nominating temporary foreign workers for permanent residency who are already here working and addressing immediate labour needs.
Final decisions have been made on all U.S. Visa Holder category applications received prior to the suspension of this category on August 23, 2010 and applicants have been informed. As this category is now permanently closed, no further applications will be accepted.
Individuals who have applied under this category may wish to review reference information on the U.S. Visa Holder category. Individuals nominated under this category should also review the After you are nominated section for information on the post-nomination process.
