Immigration is a long and complex process and relocating to another
country is not easy. Before one decides to make an application for
immigration to Canada, one should ask a question to oneself, "Why do I want to
immigrate to Canada?" and compare the pros and cons of immigrating to Canada with other
destinations for immigration, countries such as Australia, New Zealand,
UK and USA.
However, one of the most important question one must ask before making a decision for applying for immigration to Canada is, "What are the employment opportunities available in Canada for my occupation in the long run?"
Canada New Express entry class from 1st Jan. 2015.
New rules for Canada immigration for skilled worker and professionals will come in to effect on 1st January 2015.
This completely new system integrates all skilled worker class such as Federal skilled worker class ( FSW), Canada experience class (CEC), Federal Trade person( FTP) , Provincial Nominee program (PNP) and applicant with HRDC approved job offer. This is very open immigration policy but complex as well.
There is no occupation list. Occupation with skill level O, A and B can apply. Click here to see this list.
There is no minimum IELTS requirement. However applicant applying under FSW will need 6.00 band each, FST class will need 4.5 and 5.00 and CEC class will need 6.00 band in O & A and 5.00 band in B occupations. PNP has its own requirements.
There is no minimum or maximum age requirement. However prefered age which will get maximum points is 19-35 Years. PNP has its own requirement.
Your qualification needs to be assessed by Canadian government approved organisation.
That being said that anyone can apply under express entry class, that does not mean everyone who applies will be selected and receive invitation to apply.
For foreign worker, resume will be in government database for 12 months and if you are selected by a provincial government, company and offer a job in Canada, you will receive an invitation by the Canadian government to make formal application.
This is one of the most complexe immigration rules made by the government in its history.
** New rules will not affect filed received before 31st Dec. 2014. **
As of 1st May 2014 new occupation list of 50 occupations will come in to effect. There will be 1000 applications per occupation with maximum of 25,000 applications. Here is the complete text of the Government of Canada's annoucement:
On April 26, 2014, Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) will issue a new set of Ministerial Instructions to immigration officers regarding the processing of applications to the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP), and Canadian Experience Class (CEC).
Effective May 1, 2014, the following measures will be in place:
Federal Skilled Worker Program - 2014
Federal Skilled Workers are chosen as permanent residents based on their ability to prosper in Canada. They are assessed according to a selection grid made up of six factors, including language, education, work experience, etc.
Federal Skilled Trades Program:
This program is for people who want to become permanent residents based on being qualified in a skilled trade.
Canadian Experience Class:
This program is for people who already have skilled work experience in Canada and want to immigrate permanently.
The new Ministerial Instructions will also re-confirm the existing pause of applications to the federal Immigrant Investor and Entrepreneur Programs.
If you are NOT on the above occupation list, you can still apply under following class / program for immigration to Canada:
(1) If you have 2 years of experience of working in Canada in last 3 years you can apply for immigration of Canada under Canadian Experience class;
(2) If you have studied in Canada for 2 years and have one year work experience you can apply for immigration of Canada under Canadian Experience class;
(3)If you are ready to learn French language you can apply under Quebec skilled worker class.
(4) If you are on H1B visa in USA you can apply under Alberta Skilled worker program.
(5) If you have company to sponsor you in Canada, you can apply with confirmed job offer.
(6) If you have blood relative living for more then one year in the province of Alberta, Saskatchewan or Manitoba, you can apply under respective province's family skilled worker class.
In the last several years, most immigrants to Canada have settled in three major metros of Canada - Montreal (province of Quebec), Toronto (province of Ontario) and Vancouver (province of British Columbia). Since the major bulk of new and prospective immigrants to Canada chose to settle in these three major cities, other cities located in other provinces of Canada such as Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and the Maritimes do not receive enough immigrants to meet the shortage of skilled workers. Due to the ever-increasing demand for skilled workers in these provinces, the provincial governments entered in to separate agreements with Citizenship and Immigration Canada department to permit them to devise their own immigration policies. These agreements allow the said provinces to select their own immigrants. However, the final medical and security clearance is solely controlled by the Federal government.
Many skilled worker class immigrants, who may not qualify under the Federal immigration regulations, have the option to look in to the possibility of applying under one of the provincial immigration programs.
