Canada is inviting more than 1 Million immigrants by the year 2023. Do you know Canada has approximately 100 immigration programs, so which one best suits you? In this blog we will discuss some easiest and fastest programs through which candidates’ chances to receive an ITA (invitation to apply) will increase. Canada is one of the best countries to immigrate, especially when you are an Indian. Canada has world class educational institutions, health organisations, career opportunities and working facilities. This is why people are now migrating to Canada on a large scale. Some are migrating to study, some for work and some want to permanently settle in the country on a Permanent Residence (PR) visa.
One having the Permanent residence (PR) visa can have the following benefits;
- Right to live, work and study in Canada
- Work in well developed economy and earn
- Free education for kids
- Free medical facilities
- Child care allowance up to the age 14 years
- Subsidised university fees
- Unemployment allowance
- Spouse can legally work
The only two rights which are reserved for the citizens of Canada are;
- Right to vote
- Holding government positions that require high security clearance
Note: One cannot practice the above mentioned rights!
To fast track the assessment of Permanent residence applications the Canadian government runs Express Entry programs to not miss out skilled candidates. Under the express entry program
- Federal skilled worker program (FSWP)
- Province Nominee Program (PNP)
- SINP (Saskatchewan Immigrant nominee program)
- OINP (Ontario Immigrant Nominee program)
These are the Best Top 4 programs you should know, if you are considering immigrating to Canada. They will fast track your application assessment and you will be able to receive your Invitation to apply (ITA) faster than any other immigration program.
The first Express entry program is Federal skilled worker program in which the candidate needs to have at least 1 year of work experience in the past 10 years in a skilled occupation by NOC. The candidate should be having Language proficiency in either English or french; must score minimum 6.0 bands in IELTS. The education of the candidate must be equal to a Canadian high school diploma. This equivalency is assessed by the Educational Credential assessment. The candidate must score 67 points in the points grid and have proof of sufficient funds to show they can support themselves.
The second we have on the list is the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) in which the provinces directly select the skilled candidate from the express entry pool. There are a total of 13 provinces and territories and 11 of them have PNPs which have unique eligibility criteria.
If you receive an invitation letter from a province, it will add 600 points to your current CRS score, which will further increase your chances to immigrate to Canada. PNP helps candidates which have previous work experience or study or a job letter from the employer of the Province.
Under the PNP category Alberta Express entry the province shortlists candidates from the express entry pool. The cutoff for Alberta Express Entry is 300 CRS score which is quite low. After receiving the nomination, the candidate gets an addition of 600 CRS score which ensures an ITA for the PR visa.
Other PNP is Overseas skilled worker Saskatchewan has 2 sub-categories;
- Express entry stream Saskatchewan – The candidate must already have a profile on the express entry.
- Stream occupation in demand saskatchewan – It’s mandatory to have an active account in express entry.
Overseas skilled worker Saskatchewan selects workers who can cater to labour scarcity. You have a chance if you have experience in an in-demand occupation.
Last but not the least, Human Capital priorities Ontario. Ontario has been the favourite place for the immigrants to immigrate. Toronto is emerging as the largest tech-hub in the country. This field is fast-growing and needs more skilled candidates. The candidate must have an active profile in the express entry pool and a CRS score of 400 and above. Any significant criteria has never been issued by Ontario as they keep changing it periodically.
