Routes to permanently immigrate to Canada from India

Canada has over 60 immigration programs allowing different categories of people to immigrate to the country and settle on a PR visa. But we will talk about the presently live and relevant programs that are fit for you to apply.

Firstly, understand that a Canada PR visa is obtainable through an online application process. The applications are to be submitted to the Canadian immigration authority that runs a regular scrutiny on it and then invites the high rankers from the pool of applications. This means that the eligibility for a Canada PR visa is through a points-based system (CRS points). Let us now understand the various programs and role of the CRS points while immigrating to Canada on a PR visa:

Express Entry:

Express Entry is the most sensible approach to move to Canada. This program is for skilled young applicants. Also, it just takes a few months to get your Canada PR through Express Entry. Express Entry has 3 sub-programs for different class of people namely:

Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP):For those have a decent work experience, education and language skills

Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP): For workers in the category of semi-skilled/ non-skilled jobs say a driver a plumber.

Canadian Experience Class (CEC) : For those who have a prior work/study experience in Canada and now wants to move there permanently

The first step towards applying for this Express Entry program is getting your Educational Credential Assessment on your degrees, and appears for a language test (IELTS English test in most cases). After that, you can file your application with the help of a visa consultant like oneclick visas.

As we mentioned above, express entry is a point-based program so on what parameters does it allot scores? It gives you scores on the basis of core human factors, for example, your age, educational qualification, work experience, language skills (English) and other few elements. Canada consistently holds Express Entry draws welcoming the top scorers to apply for Canada PR visa.

The minimum score that you need to have in order to be eligible for Canada PR via Express Entry is 67 out of 100. To get this minimum score, make sure you have the following minimum credential levels:

  •           Age: Between 18-35 years. Not more than 45 years.
  •           Education: Graduate, with a positive ECA.
  •           Work experience: One-year of full time job, plus your profile being mentioned in the National Occupational Classification (NOC) list (which is the list that has skill sets/ job profiles needed in the country)
  •           Language skills: 4 groups in your IELTS test (each module) and the score must be not older than 2 years. In certain French provinces, you might need French skills too

So if you are eligible for this program, call us now and we shall carry a pre-assessment test for you to check your exact score!

Provincial Nomination programs :

In case you are not qualifying for the Express Entry program, there are many provincial nominee programs thatyou can look for. Every single one of Canada's provinces runs their own programs (called PNPs), focusing on the particular needs of their work markets. It is not always about eligibility; sometimes people tend to select certain provinces for certain attraction. For example, if you are an IT guy, you may find Toronto a suitable place to live. On the other hand, if you are seeking a peaceful live along greenery, then you may think Saskatchewan a better choice to make.

Those wishing to apply for the PNP programs must understand that there are two ways through which you can migrate to any particular province. These 2 are:

  •           Express Entry linked programs
  •          Expression of Interest/LOI/ independent programs 
Express Entry linked PNPs

The programs connected with Express Entry require you to initially make an Express Entry profile. There you will find the option for applying under the non-Express Entry adjusted PNPs. Note that you must read all the eligibility criteria for different provinces. Some provinces will demand an arranged employment while some may have a different language requirement (French in case of Quebec).

Expression of Interest/LOI/ independent programs 

This particular framework has no connection with the Express Entry and you can directly apply to the provinces to get a PR visa via Provincial Nominee Program streams. Each province asks the interested applicants to apply via Expression of interest (EOI) or other methods. You need to meet certain requirements in case you select a province to submit your EOI. Majorly, you need to check for:

  •        Arranged employment requirement
  • .     Language skills eligibility (IELTS score)
  •       Overall score total 

The following are some PNP programs currently active in inviting skilled workers to be its residents:

  •          Alberta Immigration Nominee Program
  •          British Columbia Immigration Nominee Program
  •          Manitoba Immigration Nominee Program
  •          New Brunswick Immigration Nominee Program
  •          Newfoundland and Labrador Immigration Nominee Program
  •          Northwest Territories Immigration Nominee Program
  •          Nova Scotia Immigration Nominee Program
  •          Ontario Immigration Nominee Program
  •          Prince Edward Island Immigration Nominee Program
  •          Saskatchewan Immigration Nominee Program
  •          Yukon Immigration Nominee Program

So if you are interested for PNP programs, call us now and we shall carry a pre-assessment test for you to check your eligibility for different provinces.

Other programs :

There are some other pathways too, through which you can seek your Canada PR visa. A few of them are:

  •          Business Immigration Program
  •          Family Class Immigration
  •          Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP)

So if you are interested for these programs, call us now and we shall carry a pre-assessment test for you to check your eligibility for the same.
