4 Ways to Immigrate to Canada Without IELTS Bands

Every third Indian citizen dreams of settling his/her life in the land of Maple Syrup, Canada! People travel abroad for the fulfillment of their differential purposes. Some are going to pursue their studies, some are opting for greater job opportunities and some are aiming for permanent residency for secure future and live a happier life.

There's something for everyone seeking entry in Canada be it world-class universities for higher education, high-tech job opportunities and sectors like healthcare, technology and engineering or permanently settling in Canada. The Government of Canada gives immense support and opportunities to the people coming here due to their great political and economic stability. Due to the multicultural society and peaceful ambience, all immigrants can find their cherished 'comfort zone' in a completely unknown land of Canada.

Irrespective of any pathway (except travel visa) you're considering for Canada, language test ability is one such ‘albatross' for many who believe that this particular test can break their chances of securing a good chance in Canada. The International English Language Testing System (lovingly known as IELTS) checks the proficiency of the English language in four sections SPEAKING, READING, WRITING AND LISTENING. For every visa category, there are different eligibility bands requirements. With good bands one can get admission to his desired Canadian University, increased PR chances, or can also get hired by globally reputed Canadian employers. Well, the main issue lies in the fact that securing good IELTS bands is not a cakewalk and that's why people hesitate to attempt this exam after all not everyone can afford to give highly expensive and tricky exams.

Many people even gather the courage to take exams but after several attempts fail to score a good band (crashing their morale and confidence). Thus, specifically, Indians try exploring ‘Jugaad' of moving to Canada without an IELTS exam. They are often seen asking the Canada Immigration Consultant, "I want to migrate to Canada but my English is not good" and "Do you have any other alternative where I can possibly migrate to Canada without giving an exam"? But they are also determined that they can speak English because they are also aware that lack of language proficiency might become an issue in a foreign land. No one will pay attention to you nor will they waste time in understanding your language. Still, if given an option, people will prefer immigrating to Canada without the IELTS exam. So, we have come across different pathways of immigrating to Canada without giving any language assessment.

  1. Reside in Canada permanently without giving IELTS on a dependent visa with your spouse

Your spouse must be a citizen or permanent resident or work permit holder in Canada. To facilitate families to live together, the Government of Canada allows eligible residents above the age of 18 to sponsor dependent spouses.

The Canada Dependent Visa allows you to bring your dependents to Canada and also allows them to work or study full time once they have the relevant permits. Under the Canada Dependent Visa, the following relations can be called:

  • Your spouse or common-law partner or conjugal partner
  • Dependent children under the age of 21
  • Dependent parents or grandparents
  • A child you adopted outside Canada while you held Canadian citizenship or PR
  • Your brother, sister, niece, nephew, uncle, aunt or other close relatives

The relations you sponsor can live with you in Canada. Your spouse or conjugal partner can also apply for a Work Permit to work in Canada.

So, the good news is that you do not require language ability proof to live in Canada while applying through the dependent visa category.

  1. With an open work permit

An open work permit allows a foreign national to work for any Canadian employer he/she wants over a specified period of time. Though, some work permits may restrict the kind of job or place in which the foreign national may work. A worker may apply for an open work permit from outside of Canada, within Canada or at a Canadian port of entry.

What are general eligibility requirements for a work permit?

No matter where you apply, you must:

  • Have the intention and will to leave Canada when your work permit expires,
  • Show that you have enough money to take care of yourself and your family members during your stay in Canada and to return home,
  • Obey the law and have no record of criminal activity
  • Not be a danger to Canada's security,
  • Be in good health and have a medical exam, if needed,
  • Not plan to work for an employer listed with the status "ineligible" on the list of employers who failed to comply with the conditions,
  • Not plan to work for an employer who, regularly, offers striptease, erotic dance, escort services or erotic massages, and
  • Give the officer any other documents they ask for to prove you can enter the country.
  1. LMIA approved work permit

Almost all Canadian work permits require a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) earlier known as Labour Market Opinion (LMO), in order to hire a temporary foreign worker. This offer of employment ensures that the employment of a foreign worker will not harm the Canadian labour market.

This is a two-step process where first you have to submit an application to ESDC for a LMIA followed by a second application to CIC for the actual work permit. Hence, you do not require an English assessment as such.

  1. Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program with a low IELTS score of 4.5 bands

See, language assessment cannot be fully avoided in some cases like AIPP. You have to score as low as 4.5. This is possible, right? Even the one who is not versed with English can easily score then why not you?

The employer-driven Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program was first launched in 2017 as an initiative between the federal government and the Atlantic provinces, namely Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island (PEI), and Newfound, and Labrador. This project helps in bringing the skilled, educated and experienced newcomers to fill the labour market which was earlier struggling to retain locals and attract newcomers.

If you have a job offer from an approved employer in any of these 4 provinces you are eligible to apply for AIPP as long as you fulfill the criteria. Here, one of the criteria is a lower language proficiency score of 4.5 IELTS bands. This means lack of proficiency in English or French will no longer impede your Canadian PR aspirations.

So, all those who are eligible can easily apply for the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program!

Hence, you've all the four options in your hands to select the best alternative for your immigration to Canada without giving much adieu to the language assessment.
