Canada Immigration Application Pathways

The Canada immigration application process is one of the simplest yet effective in the world of international immigration. The process has been lauded for its ease and fair selection process. The following is a step-by-step breakdown of the immigration process and explanation of how you can apply for it.

However, for guaranteed success and not wasting any time and money, Our Recommendations speak to our experts at Nationwide Immigration. We will make sure you get selected in the shortest of time and for the lowest expense.

1.Express Entry Program

The Express Entry program is Canada’s national immigration program. It offers multiple pathways for immigration into the country and is suited for professionals who have at least 1 year of experience and a college degree. However, there are thousands of people applying for a limited number of spots. So, it is better to apply for Canada immigration through Express Entry after getting 3 years of work experience and at least a Master’s degree in your field. Now, let’s look at the various immigration streams in Canada:

(a.)Federal Skilled Worker Program

The FSWP is meant for those professionals who fall in the tertiary sector of the economy. Software engineers will be best fit to apply through this category. In order to apply for Canada immigration through this stream, you are going to need to make an Express Entry profile. After this, the profile will be given a CRS score. This is going to form the basis of your immigration. You will also need to find a job in Canada for a formal consideration. Doing this has become easier thanks to the Express Entry job pool. Nationwide Immigration can also help you find good jobs through our extensive network of Canadian contacts.

(b.)Occupation in-Demand

The OID stream is meant for those people whose jobs are in high demand in Canada at the moment. You do not need any job offer to apply for Canada immigration through this stream. However, you will need to produce enough funds to support yourself for at least 3 to 6 months in Canada. These funds cannot be borrowed from anywhere and must be readily available. Before you start applying for Canada immigration through this category you should speak to our Canada immigration experts at Nationwide Immigration to ensure you can qualify.

2. Provincial Nomination Program

PNPs are ideal for those applicants who are having trouble getting through to Canada as Permanent Residents through Express Entry. They can also be handy for those who want guaranteed immigration to a particular province of Canada. One of the best things about PNP is that their immigration eligibility requirements are significantly lower than that of Express Entry. The following are immigration streams you can apply for through PNPs:

(a.)Express Entry Stream

Like the FSWP, this stream is meant for experienced professionals who are ready to start working as soon as they immigrate. The application process is very similar to the one at Express Entry. However, there are certain differences between various immigration pathways offered by different provinces. So, before you apply for Canada immigration, you should consult our Canada immigration experts at Nationwide Immigration.

(b.)Occupation in-Demand Stream

This stream is similar to the one at the national level. However, there is one major difference and that is that the only professionals who qualify for holding specific jobs as mentioned by the NOC or National Occupations Classification list can apply through here. Other than that, the application process is pretty much the same. Nevertheless, you should seek our advice and guidance before you apply to ensure prompt selection.

So, that wraps up our short intro into the various immigration pathways into Canada. Now, let us look at the actual Canada immigration application process.

Canada Immigration Application Process

  • The first thing you need to do in order to apply for immigration to Canada is to make an Express Entry profile. In order to do this, head over to the CIC website and create your profile. You will need to provide specifics about yourself such as age, education, work experience, language ability etc. Make sure that info you provide is authentic and can be verified through documents.
  • Once you finish creating your Express Entry profile, you are going to be given a CRS score. This score is ultimately going to determine whether you will get selected for immigration or not. So, it is advised to get this score as high as possible. There are many ways you can do that and you should consult us on how to achieve a high score.
  • Now, if you are applying through the FSWP or PNP, you are going to need a job. For this, the Express Entry program has a job pool which can be accessed and used to find suitable jobs. Getting a job offer letter will also add some points to your CRS score.
  • If you are applying through OID streams then all you need to do is to wait for the next Express Entry draw which is held about once every 15 days. If your score is higher than the cut-off then you will get an Invitation to Apply. After that, you will need to apply for a PR visa.
  • Once you have the visa, you will have to move to Canada within one year.
