Canada has been dubbed the most desired place based on her intake of immigrants in the past decade.
No lies! Canada is now immigrants favorite country not just because of her people but because it has one of the most encouraging immigration policies in the world. I felt a big embrace of hospitality whilst finding out about Canada because i realised the government in fact have made it easy for foreigners not just yo stay but to become citizens. Just so you know, the Canadian Government plans to admit over 350,000 immigrants each year and it is possible for you to become one of them!
Well, there are two main paths to Canada. One is to obtain a permanent residence visa and the other way is to come to Canada on a temporary work permit. more forum
What does it mean to be a Canadian Permanent Resident? Once you are issued a Canada Immigration Visa for permanent residency, you have most of the same rights and obligations as Canadian citizens. As it suggests, you may hold this status indefinitely, so long as you accumulate 2 years of residency days in each 5 year period. After 3 years of Canadian residency, you may apply for Canadian citizenship. Canada recognizes dual citizenship, so you do not have to give up your current passport.
Let’s start with A!
Acquiring a Canada Permanent Resident is an awe-mazing opportunity to stay in Canada up to 3 years legally. Trust me, you get to live, work and study and apply for Citizenship afterwards. There is an icing on the cake for Canada citizens, as one, you can visit these countries without visa. Talk of Anguilla, Bahamas Bermuda British Virgin Islands. Cayman Islands Costa Rica Cuba Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Georgia Guatemala Hondura Jamaica Mexico Nicaragua Panama Philippines, Qatar South, Korea Taiwan, Turks and Caicos Islands and all Dutch Caribbean territories.
By the way, you can get through to Canada using several Application Routes for Permanent Residence in Canada. They include –
- Federal Skilled Worker
- Federal Skilled Trades/Business immigrants
- Atlantic Immigration
- Rural Urban Immigration
- Provincial Nominee Program
- Quebec Arrima Program
So, in order to become a permanent resident you have to know if you are eligible to apply for any of routes listed. Shall we see through this route and find out if it suits?
Federal Skilled Worker
The requirements of this category are intended to assess applicants. For you who are likely to become economically established in Canada after entry.To be eligible, you must either:
- Have at least one year of continuous full-time or equivalent paid work experience in the past 10 years in one of the 38 qualifying occupations;
Have been living in Canada with legal status as a Temporary Foreign Worker or an international student for at least one year; or
- Qualify for Arranged Employment with a full-time permanent job offer from a Canadian employer.
In addition, there are three other characteristics you must possess in order to be eligible to immigrate under the skilled worker category.
- first of, you must have a minimum level of work experience. You must have at least one year of continuous full-time employment (or the equivalent part-time). This work experience must be of a skilled nature, satisfying either Skill Type 0 or Skill Level A or B in Canada’s National Occupation Classification (NOC) system. This work experience must have come within the 10 year period before applying.
- The second element of the skilled worker category is one of the financial resources. This is a straightforward requirement – you must demonstrate that they have sufficient financial resources to support yourself and your dependents for 6 months after arrival in Canada. Well, if you have an approved job offer, this requirement is waived.
- The third element of the skilled worker category is a points-based assessment. Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) uses a points-based system to measure your potential if you are plying this route for establishing yourself in Canada. You are awarded points based on six different selection factors. It is important that you reach 67 points on this assessment to qualify for immigration to Canada.
A satisfactory score on this evaluation does not, however, guarantee approval, as Canadian Immigration Visa Officers may use their discretion to approve or refuse an application based on a substituted evaluation.
The selection factors that make up the assessment are:
- Education (maximum 25 points)
Ranges from 5 points for completing high school to 25 points for completing a master’s or Ph.D. The system also gives credit for trade certificates or apprenticeship programs.
Language Skills (maximum 24 points)
Canada uses both English and French as official languages. you may receive credit for proficiency in either one or both. Marks are awarded separately for abilities to listen, speak, read, and write each official language.
- Experience (maximum 21 points)
Full points for four or more years of experience at an appropriate level.
- Age (maximum 10 points)
Full points for being between the ages of 21-49.
Arranged Employment (maximum 10 points)
If you hold a permanent job offer from a Canadian employer. Or you’re applying from within Canada and hold a temporary work permit, you may receive credit for your Canadian employment.
Adaptability (maximum 10 points)
This category brings in several factors related to an applicant’s ability to adapt to living in Canada. This includes previous experience working or studying in Canada or having family in Canada.
Altogether these three elements, along with other requirements such as security clearances and medical examinations, make up the bulk of the criteria to come to Canada under the Skilled Worker category. If you are applying to live or work in Montreal or elsewhere in Quebec, however, you must meet the selection criteria of the Province of Quebec… We shall continue next week.
