If you’re thinking about moving to Canada as an immigrant, there are 5 Ways To Immigrate To Canada. This guide will walk you through the different ways to become a permanent resident of Canada, including Express Entry, Federal Skilled Worker Program, Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), Quebec-selected Skilled Workers Program, and Start-up Visa Program. Each of these routes has its own advantages and disadvantages, so you should carefully evaluate each one before making your decision.
Express Entry Program in 2022
Express Entry is a selection system that allows Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada to apply for Canadian Permanent Residence. A person can apply for Canadian permanent residence through Express Entry if they have at least one year of skilled work experience in Canada and 3 years before applying.
An applicant with at least two years of full-time work experience (or a combination of part-time work experience which totals two years) in any occupation, including non-academic or non-managerial occupations, within the four years before applying can also apply for permanent residence through Express Entry.
Applicants must be able to provide proof of education, language skills, and any applicable work experience with official documents such as transcripts, diplomas, and certificates, or a letter from their employer confirming their work history and employment dates.
Provincial Immigration Program in 2022
On November 15, 2018, Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussein announced significant changes that could impact your ability to obtain Canadian permanent residence. The government will launch five pilot programs in 2022 that will allow provinces and territories to select economic immigrants based on a set of criteria that’s likely to be more focused on skills and less on family reunification.
Candidates who meet these criteria could receive up to 600 additional points under Express Entry’s Federal Skilled Worker program or another program. As a result, you may have better chances of being accepted into one of these pilot programs if you’re eligible under it and score highly enough in your Express Entry profile. In fact, many immigrants from certain countries—especially China—already benefit from provincial immigration streams managed by provinces like Ontario and British Columbia.
Study in Canada
When you want to study in Canada, it is important to know that some countries do not have an arrangement with Canada that enables their citizens to study there. For example, while American citizens can easily work and live in Canada, they will find it difficult (and expensive) if they want a Canadian education.
If you are not lucky enough to fall into a category where you will be studying in Canada for free, make sure that you have considered all expenses such as tuition fees; accommodation; cost of living, and transportation costs.
As different programs vary greatly in price from province to province, get exact quotes from institutions where you are interested in studying before making your final decision on which institution or program is right for you.
Canada has become increasingly important for foreign business people looking to start new companies. To run a company in Canada, you need a Canadian Work Permit, which is granted by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC). Businesspeople that fit certain criteria can apply for Business Immigration in 2022. If approved, you will receive a Letter of Introduction for Temporary Employment, which allows you to work in any industry or occupation that matches your education and experience. You can even hire and train staff using the Temporary Foreign Workers Program in 2022!
Immigration to Quebec
Quebec was given the right to conduct an independent immigration policy to evaluate candidates’ professional immigration. According to Quebec’s Immigration Minister Kathleen Weil, the provincial program would be based on the economic needs of the province and the candidate’s language proficiency in French. Ms. Weil said that professionals who obtained a job offer from one of Quebec’s major employers or a business partner in the province will have priority for permanent residency status. The program is open to business owners, entrepreneurs, and their families who will have to meet certain requirements including French proficiency and no criminal record.
