As a team of Canadian Immigration Consultants in Vancouver, Racer Immigration knows that coming to a new country can be a complicated process. But for those hoping to make Canada a home, there are many excellent immigration programs. And some of the most popular are listed right here:
1) Express entry: Express Entry was introduced in 2015 by the Federal Government. It is currently an umbrella system that governs the Federal Skilled Worker (FSW), Canadian Experience Class (CEC), and Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP), as well as some Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs).
Applicants looking to apply using Express Entry have to submit an Expression of Interest to the government of Canada. If the minimum eligibility requirements are met, they will be invited to the Express Entry pool. They are given a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score, and every so often, Invitations to Apply (ITAs) are sent to the highest ranking individuals in the pool during an Express Entry draw.
2) Provincial Nominee Programs: Each province and territory has authority over its own immigration programs and policies, commonly known as Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs). Ideal candidates for PNP programs usually fall under one of these categories: having worked in or currently working in Canada, are currently in the Express Entry pool, have a connection to the province (either in studies, work experience or a job offer), or have a family member in the province in question.
3) Student Pathway: Being a student in Canada is excellent for those looking for permanent residence, due to the value placed on a Canadian education. If they currently qualify for an immigration program, being a student in Canada can increase their chances of being accepted. And if they don’t qualify normally, it can help make them eligible.
4) Canadian Family Sponsorship: Family reunification is one of the most common ways of obtaining permanent residence. A spouse or child who is a permanent Canadian resident or citizen is allowed to sponsor an application to move to Canada.
