Now that we have a basic understanding of the benefits of making an immigration application to Canada, let us take a look at the process by which you can apply for immigration to Canada even without a job offer.
The Express Entry program has three basic streams – Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSW), Federal Skilled Trades Program (FST) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC). Out of these three, the Federal Skilled Worker Program or FSW is the most popular and has further been divided into 2 streams. The first is the regular Express Entry stream and the second is the Occupation in-Demand stream. The second stream was devised to allow more people to enter Canada and help the Canadian economy grow by allow those people to enter into the country who had the necessary skills and abilities to positively impact the economy.
Also, recent changes have been made to the Express Entry program which has resulted in the Occupation in-Demand stream gaining a lot of popularity. Earlier, the IRCC awarded as many as 600 CRS points to applicants who had a valid job offer from a Canadian employer. Because of this, most of the ITAs issued within any given draw got reserved for professionals with jobs. Now, these points have been reduced to between 50 to 200 CRS points depending upon the nature of the job and the requirement in local provinces within Canada. This has resulted in more OID applicants getting the chance to move to Canada because the system has become more competitive and OID applicants now have an equal chance of moving to the country.
Now that we have enough background on the issue, let us take a step-wise look at how you can make your Canada immigration application without a job offer, get selected and finally move to the country with you and your family:
The first thing you need to do is to create an Express Entry profile. For this, you will need to go to the IRCC website and fill out the Express Entry form. You will need to provide specific details about yourself like age, language ability, education, work experience etc. Make sure all the information you provide is correct and can be verified with documents. If there is any discrepancy in the records then this might result in a disqualification. Also, you will need to specify which province in Canada you want to move to. Make sure the province you specify has many vacancies and requirements for your particular job orientation.
The Express Entry Job Pool has been designed to help international immigration applicants find jobs in Canada. Once you make your Express Entry profile, it will automatically be included in the Express Entry job pool. Provinces which have an acute requirement for professionals from your line of work and cannot hire any persons from within Canada itself usually look for people who they can help bring into the country to fill up their vacancies. So, you might get approached by a company to work for them and they might even file paperwork from their end to bring you into the country.
Another great way of ensuring immigration through the OiD stream is to apply for a Provincial Nomination. First, select the province that you want to go to. Second, check to see if your job is in high demand in the provinces. If it is, then go ahead and apply for immigration to the province through the OiD stream of that province. You will need to go online and create a profile with the correct info just like you did for Express Entry. After you have made the profile and verified the info, the authorities will then give you a Provincial Nomination which will virtually guarantee your immigration.
The Express Entry draws are held every 15 days or so. After you have completed your profile and have had it verified, if the IRCC or provincial authorities find your skills worth recruiting, you will get an ITA or Invitation to Apply. If you do not get an ITA, then it would be wise to consult an immigration expert like Nationwide Immigration to find out where you are lacking and how you can ensure selection. If you already have a Provincial Nomination, then you are bound to get selected so don’t worry.
After you get the ITA, apply for the PR visa with the IRCC. You will need to do this within 90 days of getting the ITA. After you get the PR visa, you will have another year to move to Canada. Please note that you will have to pay to get the visa issued and the usual cost for the principal applicant is around 490 CAD. If you have family members going along with you, then they are also going to need a PR visa and this would require extra expenses. We suggest you consult us to know exactly how much money you will need to get the job done. Also, since you will be moving to Canada through the Occupation in-Demand category, you will need to show that you have enough money to support yourself and your family for at least 3 months in Canada while you look for a job. This money has to be liability free and available in liquid currency. For more details, please contact us at Nationwide Immigration.
So, now you know that moving to Canada without a job offer is possible, but it has many aspects involved in it. Many people fail to get the ITA after many tries and waste valuable time and money.
