Canada is a very popular immigration destination with immigration hopefuls around the world. That is why there are so many people who apply for immigration to Canada each year. In comparison, though, only handfuls or a select few are selected. The most common reason for this is that they approach the thing casually and don’t follow the rules as strictly as they should. As a result, their application ends up providing incomplete information or misrepresents it and as a result gets rejected. In some extreme cases, people have also been barred from applying again for as many as 5 years by the IRCC.
In order to avoid this situation and apply for Canada PR in the best manner possible, the wisest thing to do is to get help from respected and professional immigration agencies like Nationwide Immigration. At the same time, however, it does no hurt to know the general details of the immigration process and more importantly, the rules that affect them. So, here is a quick guide to the latest Canada immigration rules 2018:
Age: According to the latest rules for Canada immigration as set by the IRCC for 2018, any person between the ages of 18 to 65 years can apply for immigration to Canada. Earlier, this criteria used to be 21 to 65 years but in light of growing trends for immigration into Canada, these rules were changed to include more people. The highest points will be received by people between the ages of 25 and 35 years of age as the IRCC considers this the prime age for any immigrant as they will be able to contribute actively for many years to come to the local and national Canadian economy. People who are keen on moving to Canada should apply as soon as they fall within the mentioned age range. Keep in mind, however, that just the right age will not get you an immigration confirmation. That will require you to meet other criteria as well.
Education : Since the IRCC wants more and more people to enter Canada and start contributing to the economy, it has a fairly relaxed education criterion. There have been a set of rule changes made recently to this aspect of Canada immigration. Now, anyone with a high school diploma can enter into Canada as a permanent resident. Of course, they have to have the right kind of work experience as well. For Indians, however, who are mostly employed in the service sector, it is usually best to have a Master’s degree, because it helps the applicant find a good job and also gives them a better chance at getting selected for immigration through the Express Entry program.
Work Experience:Work experience is an important factor when it comes to getting selected for Canada immigration. Under the new regime, the minimum number of years required for immigration to Canada has been lowered to 1 year. All applicants need to have working experience of at least one year in order to apply and be considered worthy of immigrating to Canada. While the minimum work experience requirement for immigration to Canada is at 1 year, it is highly recommended that applicants get at least 3 year of working experience as this gives them a better chance of getting selected for immigration to Canada through the Express Entry program.
Language Ability:Language is an important factor when looking to travel or migrate to any country and Canada is no exception. For a person to easily conduct business and work in a new country, it is necessary to know the most widely used language in the country. In the case of Canada, the languages are English and French. But compared to other English-speaking countries, the immigration requirement for moving to Canada as a permanent resident or PR is rather low. You only need to score a CLB 7 in order to get through for immigration. However, we advise all immigration hopefuls to try and get an IELTS score above CLB 9 to maximize their profile potential. While there is a less prospect of the language ability to be lowered in 2018, it is possible that as the year moves forward, the overall criteria are relaxed and new rules are introduced. For example, this year, the IRCC introduced new rule changes which said that if an applicant knows both English and French then they will get extra points for that.
Adaptability:One of the biggest reasons for the popularity of the Canada immigration program is that it lets families migrate together and stay together. Also, it gives extra points to applicants who already have family living in Canada. In the latest rule changes, the IRCC says that people who have family already living in Canada will get special benefit of added points to their profile.
Now that we have talked about the latest rules changes in 2018, let us take a look back at some of the most important changes in the IRCC’s immigration policy in 2017. Please note, that while the issues that we mention here are fairly up-to-date, we would advise you to get in touch with our immigration experts to get the latest picture of the immigration scenario to Canada.
There are several other changes which have been introduced in 2017, but these do not affect people going for Permanent Residency. All you will need to keep in mind is that you need to score above the cut-off CRS score to get through. Everything else is just an addition to this. If you are still wondering if Canada will be a right fit for you, then let us make the decision a little easier.
Here are some of the many benefits of moving to Canada:
Standard of Living: Canada has one of the highest standards of living in the western world. It has one of the lowest crime rates in the world and offers immigrants the brilliant opportunity to experience what it is like to live in a first-world nation.
Cost-free Education:Canada offers free education up to the undergraduate level for its citizens and permanent residents. Thus, you will not have to make sacrifices to get your child educated to the right degree and help them establish themselves in the world.
Wide Working Opportunities:Canada has one of the biggest economies in the world, which offers many opportunities to working professionals from a variety of backgrounds. Its economy is on the rise to experts estimate that there will be a growing need for more professionals in the future. So, this is a great time to move to Canada and living there permanently.
Immigrant-Friendly Country:Canada is one country which is considered to be very immigrant-friendly. As the majority of the working population of the nation is made up of immigrants from different parts of the world, the country has a very liberal attitude towards newcomers and there are virtually no incidences of aggression or violence towards immigrants.
