Top 3 Canada Immigration Programs to Immigrate to Canada
Express Entry System
Canada’s flagship immigration program is intended to fast-track the immigration process. The system works by requiring potential immigrants to create an online profile on the ICCRC webpage. Applicants will then enter their information and supporting documents to attain a Comprehensive Ranking System score out of 1,200 total points. The highest points you can earn based on skills transferability and human capital factors such as your age, language skills, work experience, qualifications and your spouse’s human capital factors is 600 points. The other 600 points up for grabs is if you can secure one of the following:
|A valid job offer in the NOC 0 is worth 200, and one under the NOC 0, A or B is worth 50 points|
|A high score in English or French CLB tests can be worth up to an additional 30 points. You must still take the CLB test even if you are from an English speaking country. Look at it this way, easy points!|
|A Provincial Nomination is worth 600 points|
|If you have a sibling living in Canada, 15 points|
|A post-secondary qualification from a Canadian institution, two years or less is 15 points and three years or more is 30 points|
Provincial Nomination Program
So clearly, if you are able to secure a provincial nomination, you will be at the very top of the Express Entry pool and be almost guaranteed an invitation to apply for permanent residency. It is the single most important factor in your CRS score. The PNP is a program that allows provinces to nominate immigrants who wish to settle, live and work in a particular province. The candidate can apply directly to the province or create an expression of interest through their Express Entry profile. The province then considers the application based on their labour and skill requirements and makes a decision. The PNP also does not have a skill level cut off, so if your job is skill level C or D, you may find a stream under one of the PNP’s you will be eligible for.
You can receive a provincial nomination even if you do not have a valid job offer from the province you intend to settle and live in, if they feel you will add to their economy. If you do have a valid job offer from a designated employer in the province you intend to settle and live in, a provincial nomination will be much easier to get and if you meet all the eligibility requirements, you are all but guaranteed an invitation to apply for permanent residency.
Care Providers Pilots
Canada has introduced two new pilots, the Home Support Worker Pilot and the Child Care Provider Pilot. The aim of these two new pilots was to iron out some of the issues potential immigrants experienced working as caregivers in Canada. The two biggest changes these pilots introduced are:
These changes were introduced in order to protect immigrants from being caught in abusive situations, which they would often be forced to remain in, in their pursuit of permanent residency. Now immigrants can freely change employers and once they have 24 months of full time experience and meet all the other eligibility requirements, can obtain permanent residency status.
Atlantic Immigration Pilot
The amount of immigration applications being accepted for the AIP has doubled from 2021 to 4,000. You are eligible to apply for permanent residency through this pilot if you intend to settle, live and work in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island or Newfoundland and Labrador. This pilot is for those who:
