Canada is one of the top immigrant countries for Indians looking for a better life. The immigration procedure to Canada from India differs depending on the kind of visa you are requesting.
The country has various immigration programs to help those who wish to move there. These include - Federal Skilled Worker Program, Express Entry, and Provincial Nominee Programs.
- Express Entry
Every step of the Express Entry process is done electronically. An aspirant’s web profile which includes information about their age, education, and employment history is used to evaluate them based on their human capital
The main element in the immigration process is a job offer which can significantly increase an applicant’s CRS score (Comprehensive Ranking System). Once the applicant receives an Invitation to Apply (ITA) they can then submit their application to IRCC (Immigration, refugee & citizenship Canada). The whole process typically takes under six months.
Best immigration consultants in India can assist and help you in this entire process.
- Federal Skilled Worker Program
The Federal Skilled Worker Program is Canada’s largest economic immigration category. This stream selects immigrants based on their skills and work experience. It uses a points-based system to assess candidates’ eligibility, with a total of six selection factors including education, language abilities, work experience, age, arranged employment in Canada, and adaptability. Applicants are ranked using a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score.
- Provincial Nominee Program
The provincial nominee program (PNP) is a pathway to Canadian permanent residence for eligible candidates who cannot meet federal criteria. Applicants may apply to a specific province through one of its PNP streams or in some cases be nominated by the province through an Express Entry linked stream.
Applicants who are invited to apply by a province are typically required to sign documents that confirm their commitment to live and work in that province. They will also need to undergo a medical exam and get police checks for every city they have lived in for more than six months. They then submit these documents to IRCC along with their application form. Upon receiving these documents IRCC will issue an AOR (Acknowledgement of Receipt).
- Quebec Selection Certificate
You can get a CSQ by applying for one of Quebec’s immigration programs and meeting their eligibility requirements. The program you apply for will depend on your job type and skills. Applicants who do not have a job offer will need to show they have the funds to support themselves and their families upon arrival in Canada.
Once you have a CSQ you can apply to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). IRCC will review your application to make sure it meets the minimum standards for your chosen pathway.
- Family Class Sponsorship
Through Family Class sponsorship, Canadian citizens and permanent residents can sponsor their spouse, common-law partner or conjugal partner, son or daughter, parent, grandparent, brother or sister, orphaned niece or nephew, or orphaned grandson or granddaughter to become permanent residents in Canada.
Depending on the category there are three main requirements to sponsor a family member or close relative for immigration: age, status in Canada, and financial sufficiency.
