Each year, Canada releases an Immigration Levels Plan. The Immigration Levels Plan is a guideline that Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) uses to grant immigrants citizenship.

The Immigration Levels Plan often prioritizes certain careers and skill sets, meaning if you are a trained professional in an understaffed or essential field, you may be able to become a citizen faster than those without your qualifications. 

In October 2020, IRCC published The Immigration Levels Plan 2021-2023. This iteration of the plan seeks, among many goals,  to boost Canada’s essential workforce and aid in economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of this, IRCC has also released plans to speed up the process of obtaining citizenship for essential workers and university graduates in essential fields
