Let us help you with the future of Canada in 2024

With the new plans for 2024-26, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada has also increased the targets for popular economic-class immigration programs, including Express Entry and Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs). 

Let’s explore pathways for Canada’s PR with their respective new targets -

Express Entry Program

Express Entry remains one of the preferred pathways for Canada's PR. A point-based system, Express Entry calculates applicant’s profiles based on their age, education, work experience, and language skills (English or French). IRCC is planning to welcome 110,700 new immigrants in 2024 under this program.

The Express Entry system consists of three federal economic immigration programs:

  • Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP): ideal for skilled workers with work experience outside Canada.
  • Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP): For skilled tradespeople with work experience in specific occupations.
  • Canadian Experience Class (CEC): Ideal to apply for workers with Canadian work experience.
To qualify, you need to get your educational credentials assessed and get the required IELTS score. In addition, you have to create an Express Entry profile with all details about yourself - education, work history, age, etc. to receive a CRS score.

IRCC conducts Express Entry draws every two weeks, inviting candidates with the highest CRS score to apply for PR. You’ll be given 60 days to submit your application with all the required documents. Once verified by IRCC, you will send a Confirmation of Permanent Residence (COPR).

Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)

Another popular way to obtain PR for Canada in 2024 is to get a direct nomination from a province or territory in Canada. Also, IRCC is aiming to take 110,000 admissions in 2024, making PNP a quick pathway to Canada PR. Each province has its own immigration programs customized to its specific labor market needs.

PNPs are ideal for those candidates who have the required education and experience that can contribute to the in-demand jobs listed in the Canada Skilled Occupation list. Medical examination and security checks are also extremely important to verify your background to apply for a PNP.

Once you get the provincial nomination, apply for the federal economic immigration programs to get Canada PR.

Here are some of the easiest Canadian provinces you can apply under -

  • Ontario Provincial Nominee Program (OINP)
  • Alberta Advantage Immigration Program (AAIP)
  • Saskatchewan Provincial Nominee Program (SINP)
  • Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP)
  • PEI Provincial Nominee Program

Spousal, Partner, and Children Sponsorship

Applying for PR in Canada from India under the Family Class immigration program is one of the best ways to reunite with your immediate family in Canada. In 2024, IRCC is targeting to take 82,000 new immigrants through this program. This program allows permanent residents and Canadian citizens to sponsor their children, spouses, and conjugal partners to come to live with them in Canada for a predetermined period.

Spousal, Partner, and Children Sponsorship

Here are the eligibility criteria to sponsor a family member. You must be -

  • 18 years old
  • Residing in Canada as a PR holder or citizen
  • Be able to prove that you are not getting any aid from the Canadian government except for reasons like disability
  • Be able to demonstrate that you can financially support yourself and your family
Also, you can sponsor any relative for permanent residency in Canada under the following conditions of the Family Sponsorship program -

  • You, as a sponsor, must submit a federal undertaking to the IRCC if you live outside of Quebec.
  • Sponsors who currently reside in or intend to relocate to Quebec are required to provide a provincial undertaking to the Quebec Ministry of Diversity and Inclusion.

Business Immigration Program

If you’re an aspiring entrepreneur or business owner who wishes to immigrate to Canada in 2024 to establish a business, explore options like the Start-Up Visa Program, Self-Employed Persons Program, or Investor Immigration. The Canadian government is always seeking investors, business managers, and entrepreneurs who wish to settle in Canada and contribute to the economy and labor market.

To apply for Canada PR under the Business Immigration Program, you must -

  • Have the means to fund/start a business in Canada
  • Be proficient in English or French
  • Have an innovative business idea or a Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA)
  • Once the LMIA is approved (a 2-3 month process), you, as an investor, can apply for a 12-24 month temporary work permit (which takes about 3 months).
Check your eligibility for these programs and consider factors like age, education, language skills, work experience, and other relevant factors.
