Top Four Pathways for Immigration to Canada

Canada is an only country on the planet earth, which is open for all! The Canadian government and people gracefully welcome immigrants from different nations, cultures, and ethnicities.

If you are willing to immigrate to a beautiful maple leaf country- Canada, but you are confused about which pathway to choose for Canadian migration, then we have come up with top four ways for skilled workers, students, or businessmen.

Federal Express Entry System

The Express Entry system of Canada is one of the fastest and easiest pathways to gain Canadian permanent residency as a skilled foreign national. It is an online application management system that manage and process PR applications for three key federal economic class immigration programs, including:

  • Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)
  • Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)
  • Canadian Experience Class (CEC)

The Express Entry system follows a point-based selection system called Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) that evaluates all the profiles in the pool. Followed to this, the IRCC (Immigration, Refugee, Citizenship Canada) award as core and rank to all the applicants based on their age, English or French language proficiency, skilled work experience, educational qualification, and admissibility.

Provincial Nominee Program (PNPs)

This pathway is ideal for those individuals who wish to live and work in any particular Canadian province or territory. To qualify, they must possess a right skill set, education, and work experience to contribute to the provincial economy of a particular province or territory.

Each Canadian province except Quebec has its own immigration program that target specific people under different PNP streams.

Family Sponsorship Program

An applicant can get a sponsorship from his/her family member or relative living in Canada as a permanent resident or citizen. To qualify as a sponsor, a person must age above 18 years, be a permanent resident or a citizen of Canada, or registered in Canada as an Indian under the Canadian Indian Act.

As a sponsor, he/she can bring his spouse, common-law partner, dependent children, parents and grandparents, and certain relatives to Canada as permanent residents.

Study Permit

If you are a student and wish to pursue higher studies at any Canadian college or university for a duration of 6 months or more, you must apply for a Canadian study permit, which is valid for the entire duration of your study program with an additional timeline of 90 days.

As a recent graduate in Canada, you may qualify to apply for a PGWP, i.e., Post-Graduate Work Permit. With a permit you can work under any Canadian employer and gain relevant Canadian work experience. This experience will eventually help you in qualifying for Canada PR visa under Express Entry’s Canadian Experience Class (CEC).
