How can you move from Dubai to Canada?

When moving to Canada, it is advisable if the candidate tries to avail the PR status in Canada which can be attained through two ways – Express Entry Program and Provincial Nominee Program ( PNP). While Express Entry would allow the immigrant to settle anywhere in the country, PNP will allow the candidate with the benefit to settle in that particular province only.

Express Entry Program

From January, 2015, the Government of Canada has made migrating to Canada relatively easier and faster especially for skilled candidates. Under the Express Entry Program, the applicant is granted the Permanent Residency (PR) Status with the help of which the candidate can settle anywhere in the country. It is an online process of filling the application in which the abilities of the applicant are tested through the point measurement which is done by calculation of following criteria’s

  • Age – Although there is no age limit for migrating to Canada but if a person is between 18 to 35 years of age then more points are allocated
  • Language proficiency – it is cross checked through IELTS and CLB examination. Scoring high band in IELTS can guarantee good points to the candidate.
  • Education – Calculated under the ECA, the educational degree should be at par with the Canadian education board.
  • Work Experience – The candidate should be skilled and having good work experience makes one eligible for good score points
  • Adaptability – having a sibling already settled in Canada can help one to garner good points.

The combination of these scores determine the Comprehensive Ranking System ( CRS ) score of the candidate which is the benchmark for selection or rejection of the application as the candidates who achieve the minimum CRS score as determined in the Express Entry Draws are asked the apply through the ITA ( invitation to apply). After the ITA the candidate has 90 days timeframe to file the nomination for PR status.

Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)

The Provincial Nominee Program (PNPs) are allocated to the candidate for each province. In this the candidate needs to apply to a particular province for PR status which has its own eligibility guidelines based on Age, Language Proficiency, Education, Work Experience and Adaptability. The PNPs are granted Like Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP), Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) and Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP). After fulfilling the guidelines, the PR status is allocated for a period of five years.  The benchmark for each province is different and the eligibility is filled by the candidate for that region only like in Ontario a minimum of 400 points is sort for eligibility.

Quebec Skilled Workers Program (QSWP)

It is the mode of seeking PNP for the Quebec region. Under this program, the PR status for the Quebec region is acquired and in this process first the approval is sought from the Quebec province and after that the approval is sought by the federal government.

IT professionals are in high demand in Nova Scotia, Manitoba, Ontario and British Columbia and Chartered accountants are needed in areas like British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario. Hence, if you are an IT professional then settling in the Nova Scotia or Ontario is the best suitable choice for you. Some of the ways which can enhance your job placement chances are:
