CAN+ Program for Mexicans Coming to Canada

(Below is a transcription of this video)

Hi, this is Michael Niren, immigration lawyer and founder of

The CAN+  Program for Mexican Nationals

The Canadian government has made it easier for Mexican nationals to come to Canada as temporary residents or as visitors under the new CAN+ program. The CAN+ program is for eligible Mexicans who have traveled to Canada or United States within the last 10 years. These individuals will be allowed to apply for visitor visas, temporary resident visas on an expedited basis, and we’re hoping that the process will be about 50% faster, which is really good news. So far, 95% of applicants under the CAN+ program have been approved. It’s a great program. It’s an initiative to allow Mexican nationals an easier path… to have an easier path to come to Canada.

Benefits Associated with the CAN+  Program for Mexican Nationals

In the past, under NAFTA, Mexicans didn’t even need temporary resident visas. They didn’t need visas to come to Canada. However, over the last few years, the government imposed visas for Mexican nationals because some of them came and overstayed their status or applied for refugee status. So the government took a hard line and made Mexicans apply for T.R.V.s. So now, they’re going in the opposite direction, which is good news, under the CAN+ program. So for our Mexican clients or those individuals from Mexico who wish to come to Canada, this is a welcome news. Thank you and have a great day.

I highly recommend VisaPlace to anyone seeking help with navigating the legal minefield that is Permanent Residency. As someone who is very easily stressed, Lauren & Mariana have saved me a lot of sleepless nights. They are fast, efficient, reliable and honest and I will be telling any of my friends to use them for immigration. Thanks to them, my future with my husband in Canada is bright
