Today with the most of globe reeling under the debt
crisis post global meltdown, Canadian economy is one of those few nations
which is in flamboyant moods and is in need of consistent inflow of migrant
workers for to address structural deficiencies in labor pool. Canada has
been a hot destination for immigration since the turn of 21st century.
With vast areas lying uninhabited and unparalleled potential for a better
career, prosperous life and stable future Indians have been making bee
lines for migration to this North American nation.
Immigration to Canada is possible through
Federal trained proficient migrant-FSWP
Provincial sponsorship scheme-PNPs
Most popular passage to Canada from India has been under
federal skilled migration regime. This program offers an unparalleled
freedom to travel and work anywhere in Canada. Currently this program
is undergoing a transformation and efforts are on to make FSWP more responsive
to needs of Canadian economy. There are some considerable changes being
planned and once implemented (tentative date of enforcement of these amendments
is January 2013) focus of immigration regime will shift to more need based
skilled migration (as some trades have been kept in restricted professions
class to curtail inflow of migrants in professions where there is a sizeable
presence of local work force).
Proposed modifications put the operateability on National occupational
classification - NOC and all future regime indicators will function in
close collusion with NOC.
Emphasis of federal migration system is going to be on encouraging younger
emigrants to participate in labor pool for a longer period. Besides age,
there are other systematic modifications being planned to facelift immigration
Language ability has been prioritized in new system as language is considered
an important element in ability of migrants and their spouses to adapt
in local socio-economic scenario efficiently and effectively!
Likewise, overseas employment experience in nominated trade is not going
to carry more weight as this aspect of migrant's profile is not considered
to be favorable for ability to be hired initially.
Bearings of changes will be observed in point's evaluation of a migrant.
Most important step of new regime will be getting overseas academic credentials
evaluated from a specified assessment agency. Only candidates with positive
or neutral verification advice will be able to file for permanent residence.
A new classification "Federal Skilled Trade Class" is being introduced.
This new incorporation has been planned as a move to appreciate needs
of provisional requirements of Canadian labor pool. To qualify for this
scheme you would need to either have a job offer on hand with tenure of
minimum 1 year.
Another passage to migrate to Canada is through provincial sponsorship.
Different states have been running their independent sponsorship programs
in coordination with citizenship and immigration Canada. States have freedom
to maneuver their programs and sponsor people as per distinct and local
aspirations. Provincial schemes are based on requirements of different
sectors of states and do not rely on federal immigration structure.
Critical aspects that you would need to prove
for any program be it federal or PNP are Education
Adaptability factors and contribution
capacity in economic aspects
