How to apply for the Permanent Residency(PR) Status of Canada?

With the latest changes introduced in the immigration model, the immigration process with the PR status has given wings to the candidates. The Permanent Residency (PR) status can be availed through three main pathways – Express Entry Program, Provincial Nominee Program(PNP) and Quebec Skilled Workers Program(QSWP)

Express Entry Program

It was introduced in 2015 and is a selection model which is federal in nature. It is a pathway for skilled candidates to migrate to Canada and is a highly beneficial option for the immigrants with which the candidate can migrate to Canada in 6 months time. The candidates under this program are evaluated on the basis of point measurement system and the factors that contribute in the point calculation are listed below:

  • Age – The age bracket which can help the candidate attain maximum points is 18- 35 years. However, there is no age limit to move to Canada.
  • Language Proficiency – There are two official languages in Canada – English and French and the knowledge in at least one of them is important to establish. The candidate needs to undertake the test in either one of the language and submit the score for points calculation.
  • Education– All the degrees/ certificates / diplomas etc. are accessed as per the standards of the Canadian educational board and they should be analyzed with the help of a governing authorized body like WES. For higher education the candidates are allotted high scores.
  • Work Experience – Having good work experience in a field can not only get good points to the candidate but can also help in the employment department. For a decent job profile at least one year of full time continuous paid job experience is necessary.
  • Adaptability – Having a sibling or spouse who is already staying in Canada can help the candidate attain extra points for Canada Immigration
  • Arranged employment – Having a job offer from an employer is Canada can get the candidate extra points. Although for immigration to Canada having a job offer is not mandatory.

The Express Entry Draws are released by the IRCC (Immigration Refugee and Citizenship Canada) in which the minimum qualifying Comprehensive Ranking System(CRS) point score is announced. All those candidates who secure the minimum Comprehensive Ranking System(CRS) point score are considered fit to apply for the Permanent Residency (PR) status of Canada and are sent and ITA (Invitation to apply) which needs to be responded in 60 days time.

Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)

The candidates who fail to qualify through the Express Entry Program due to some reason need not lose hope as they can apply for the Permanent Residency (PR) status of Canada through the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). The Provincial Nominee is for a particular province’s Permanent Residency (PR) status in which the candidate needs to meet the eligibility for the province to attain its Permanent Residency (PR) status. The candidate should ethically stay in that province for a minimum period of two years of which the Permanent Residency (PR) status is achieved. The eligibility for every province is different and they pay huge importance to the occupation in-demand in their region at the time of selection of candidates. Some of the examples are –

  • Nova Scotia wants the candidate’s occupation to be in-demand in their region and there should be an IELTS score of minimum 4.5 band.
  • Saskatchewan asks for a score of 60-point grid out of 100

Quebec Skilled Workers Program (QSWP)

The Quebec region has its own eligibility criteria for immigration to Canada. The Permanent Residency (PR) status of the Quebec region can be attained after the candidate has met the minimum qualifying criteria of the province. The selection model is point based and the candidate should undergo the process of immigration through this model in two stages-

  • The CSQ (certificate of selection of Quebec) needs to be achieved from the Quebec province
  • The approval of the federal government after receiving the CSQ should be attained.

The Quebec region places huge importance on the knowledge of the French language. Thus, people with the knowledge of the French language have an extra advantage in the Quebec region.
