The fact that more and more people from Australia are migrating to Canada is because of better growth prospects both individually and personally. The scenic beauty and beautiful landscape are like gems in the crown of Canadian beauty and the lenient immigration laws have made it possible for immigrants to enjoy the fruits of the country and settle peacefully as well. The people of Canada are very warm and they make sure that the immigrants are well settled in their country with the help of regulatory bodies like IRCC. The perks of settling in Canada are myriad and this is what makes Canada one of the top ten locations in the world to live.
The best way of migrating to Canada from Australia is by acquiring a Permanent Residency (PR) Status which is valid for a period of five years and is a family visa. The benefits of PR status are very similar to the full citizen rights of Canada. The popular ways of attaining a PR status are – Express Entry Program, Quebec Skilled Workers Program (QSWP) and Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)
It is an online mode of application filing in which the screening time is 6 to 12 months. Under the Express Entry Program, the PR status allows the candidate with the right to settle anywhere in Canada. It places huge importance on immigrating skilled workers to Canada. Under Express Entry program the candidate is evaluated on the basis of points. These points are calculated based on the following parameters:
After every 15 days the Express Entry Draws are announced by the IRCC, which decides the minimum point requirement to make through the eligibility for ITA (Invitation to Apply)
The latest draw by the IRCC, brought a surprise for the aspirants who want to immigrate to Canada as the draw released on 26th March, 2018 asked for a reduction of 10 points in the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score than last time. The last draw of 14th March, 2018 asked for a score of 456 while this time a score of 446 points was asked. Thus more candidates became eligible to apply after the Express Entry Draw. This is an indication that Government of Canada is looking for more immigrants this year.
Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) allots PR status to the candidate for a province for which the eligibility criteria are met by the candidate. It is important to note that every province in Canada has its own eligibility criteria for attaining the PR status. Although the laws are very flexible in Canada, it is advisable that after the PNP is attained the candidate stays in that province for a minimum period of 2 years before settling or moving to a new location. Under PNP or Provincial Nominees program, the applicants are regularly chosen based on their age, work abilities, education and language proficiency and the point preferences are different for every province. Like Ontario asks for a CRS Point requirement of 400 from the candidates and Saskatchewan asks for a 60-point grid out of 100
QSWP is a provincial Nominee Program for Quebec province. 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 is important to note that Quebec as a region invites skilled workers to its region.
