 What are the immigration Programs in Canada?

Immigration to Canada is feasible through number of different programs for different classes of people. If you are a skilled individual looking for work opportunities in Canada, then Economic Class is suitable for you. Other options include Business immigration programs, Family Sponsorships, etc.

Canada Immigration for Economic Class has two programs each with multiple streams.

First and most popular one is called Express Entry System. Express Entry Program took birth in the year 2015. The program was introduced by Canada so that a more systematic way of immigration could be worked upon. Before introduction of the Express Entry System, there used to be delayed visas, more processing time and first-come-first-served basis of selection. However, with the popular move of bringing Express Entry into picture, processing time has been cut down to 6-8 months. Moreover, candidates are now selected on the basis of a point system rather than on first-come-first-served basis.

There are three streams under Express Entry System:

  1. Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)
  2. Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)
  3. Canadian Experience Class (CEC)

Federal Skilled Worker Program is for skilled workers who are having relevant age, educational qualification, work experience and language skills to come and work in Canada and contribute towards development of the Canadian economy.

Federal Skilled Trades Program is for semi-skilled/unskilled workers with basic education, experience and language skills. To apply for this program, the candidate must have a valid Job offer letter from an employer operating firm inside Canada.

Canadian Experience Class on the other hand, is for those individuals who are having a prior experience in Canada, say while on a Work permit or any other temporary visa.

The other system through which Canadian immigration authorities invite skilled workforce in the country is Provincial Nomination Programs (PNPs). These programs are offered by different provinces of Canada. Each provincial program has its own set of requirements and Occupation list. To be eligible to immigrate to Canada through a Provincial Nomination Program, your Job profile has to be there in the current occupation list of that particular province. Alongside, you must meet other eligible criteria laid down by that particular province.

Following are the Provincial Nomination Programs in Canada:

Canada immigration points calculator 2018

Canada Immigration is a point based system. The system has been designed to sort the best immigration applicants from the rest and allow for entry of the most qualified individuals without any biases. To be eligible to apply for migration to the maple leaf country called Canada, the applicant must have at least 67 points out of 100 on Canada’s point calculator.

Calculate your PR score using Canada’s Point Calculator tool

These points are awarded on personal credentials of an individual namely age, educational & work experiences, language proficiency, etc. under Canada’s PR point system. The PR point system is your first benchmark for determining your chances of successfully moving to Canada and starting a new life. The maximum score an individual is capable of scoring in each credential is:

Language Skills – 28 points maximum

English language is essential credential that you have to master in. You can also gain extra points on learning French language. Canada is a bi-lingual country with both English & French as its official languages (English being the first official language and French being the second official language).

Educational Qualification – 25 points maximum
