Pathway for Canada Immigration through Canada Student Visa

Canada Student Visa is a pathway for Canada immigration for prospective immigrants to realize their dream of settling in Canada. Through this, they can achieve their goal of beginning a new life in an inclusive, welcoming and diverse nation. Canada Student Visa enables the holders to obtain credentials for their education when they apply for Canada PR.

The student visa of Canada also permits the overseas students to be employed in part-time jobs during scheduled time breaks. It could be during school vacation, holidays or weekends. Based on the nature of the job, the working student also gains credentials for work experience for Canada PR. Thus their appeal as applicants of Canada immigration is enhanced. The pathway is simple and efficient, as quoted by the Canadim.

You will receive a copy of a letter of admission once you are accepted by a school in Canada. Then you have to prepare the student visa application for Canada and submit it to the Canadian Government. Upon approval, you must contact the nearest visa office for completing final formalities.

Overseas students to Canada are also permitted to be accompanied by their family members. Children of the visa applicant can be included in the visa for free of cost. This authorizes them to attend school in Canada.

Partner or spouse of the overseas student immigrating to Canada could be qualified for open work permit. This permits them to work for any Canadian employer while the principal applicant is studying.

Prior to the expiry of student visa, you must assess your chances for a post-graduate work permit. It will authorize you to be employed in a full-time job. You can thus stay in Canada waiting for the decision for your Canada PR.

Alberta to Launch Express Entry Immigration Stream

Alberta to Launch Express Entry Immigration Stream

Alberta to Launch Express Entry Immigration Stream

Alberta to Launch Express Entry Immigration Stream

Alberta is set to launch an Express Entry stream in January 2018, allowing the province to use a portion of its allocation for the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) to nominate candidates in Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada’s (IRCC’s) Express Entry pool.

In doing so, Alberta will finally join most other provinces in having at least one Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) stream aligned with Express Entry. By January, it will have been three years since IRCC’s Express Entry system first came into operation.

At this time, the eligibility criteria for Alberta Express Entry have not been publicly disclosed.

Express Entry candidates who receive a provincial nomination through an Express Entry-aligned stream, also known as an enhanced nomination or stream, receive 600 additional Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points and an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence at a subsequent draw from the pool. An enhanced provincial nomination is the single most valuable factor under the CRS.

Under Canada’s Immigration Levels Plan for 2017, a target of up to 54,000 new permanent residents arriving through PNPs has been set for 2017. The AINP is authorized by IRCC to issue up to 5,500 nomination certificates this year. When the government’s new immigration levels plan is announced (it is expected on or before November 1, 2017), there may be scope for increased settlement through PNPs, including the AINP. At this time, it is not publicly known how many nominations may be issued under the AINP Express Entry stream.

This news was not the only update from AINP sources today, as earlier in the day a new Opportunity stream, not aligned with Express Entry, was announced. This stream will also become active in the New Year.

“Immigrants are a valued part of our workforce and communities. Helping them settle successfully is crucial to the ongoing prosperity of our province,” said labour minister, Christina Gray.

“These changes will simplify processes, reduce wait times and make it more fair for applicants across all sectors to apply for permanent residency in Alberta.”

Alberta’s population stands at just over four million, with more than half of all residents residing in Calgary or Edmonton.

British Columbia Latest Draw Issues Invitation to 345 Workers

British Columbia Latest Draw Issues Invitation to 345 Workers and Graduates

British Columbia Latest Draw Issues Invitation to 345 Workers and Graduates

British Columbia Latest Draw Issues Invitation to 345 Workers and Graduates

In the latest draws for British Columbia, Provincial Nominee Program held on October 11th and 18th 345 workers and international graduates were invited to apply. Among the candidates invited some were selected under the BC PNP Tech Pilot scheme also.

The categories here are managed under Skills Immigration Register System. For applying through it, all eligible candidates must have an account, in which they are given a score which is based on their economic and human capital qualifications. Candidates with high scores are invited to apply when the province holds another periodic draw. Such Categories require the candidates to possess a job offer from an employer located in British Columbia.

Among the 345 candidates invited in the present case were some who were invited through an Express Entry Aligned Subcategory. The feature in this is that the persons invited to apply, can send an application for an enhanced BC PNP nomination certificate and receive it. A successful provincial nomination gives 600 additional points to the applicants in CRS at a later draw they also receive an ITA.

It is to be noted that an ITA under the BC PNP is dissimilar from the ITA issued in the federal Express Entry level.

These Skilled workers and graduates who have been invited in the various categories will have their applications for PR processed outside Express Entry when they get a nomination from BC.

All Eligible individuals interested in applying for Canadian immigration in specific categories must enter the SIRS pool. Then the candidates are given a score which reflects their education level, civil status, work experience gained, and some other factors. Skilled Workers, International Graduates, and Entry Level Semi-Skilled Workers figured in this list.

Express Entry BC – Skilled Worker

The Express Entry Skilled Worker category is meant for such workers who possess a post-secondary education or training /employment experience in a set up which is in the professional, technical or management spheres or related to a trade/skilled occupation. Candidates must have the eligibility to enter the federal Express Entry pool. A candidate with successful application receives 600 CRS points and can also get an ITA later at the federal level.

Express Entry BC – International Graduate

International graduates who completed their graduation from a university or college based in Canada, during the previous two years are eligible to send their application in the category of Express Entry International Graduates. This remains accessible to all eligible graduates who have graduated from a university/college in any location of Canada. It is aligned with the federal Express Entry system.

Skills Immigration – Skilled Worker

This category is accessible to all workers who have post-secondary education /training besides the experience of employment in a skilled job. A job offer is mandatory here.

Skills Immigration – International Graduate

This category is meant for international students who have graduated from a university/college based in Canada during the previous two years. The applicants do not require any work experience, but they must get a job offer from a provincial employer.

Skills Immigration – Entry Level and Semi-Skilled

This category is meant for all candidates who otherwise do not qualify for other Canadian programs. It provides an opportunity to non-skilled workers to submit their PR application.  They need to work in an eligible occupation in tourism/hospitality, or trucking/food processing industry. Certain workers in a NOC skill level C/D occupation in the Northeast Development Region are also eligible in it.
