If you’re looking to start a new life in a big country, Canada is probably on your list! As one of the safest countries in the world and with a large number of job opportunities, Canada is a choice of choice for immigration to the world.
Canada has announced plans to accept more than one million new immigrants over the next three years. Here are the best ways to immigrate to Canada in 2020!
1 – Express entry
Express Entry is a system of immigration programs that help skilled workers move to Canada as permanent residents. The system ranks applicants based on their age, education, work experience, and language skills, and then selects the best candidates to come to Canada. The express entry also allows workers to bring their family members!
Express Entry has the fastest processing times of any permanent resident program in Canada, with 80% of applications being processed in 4 months or less.
2 – Provincial Nominee Programs (PCP)
Each of Canada’s 13 provinces and territories (except Quebec) has its own immigration program, called the Provincial Nominee Program or PCP. PCPs allow the provinces to meet their individual economic needs by proposing certain candidates for permanent resident status. PNP often look for foreign workers with experience in high-demand occupations in the province. For example, the Province of Saskatchewan recently changed its PNP to designate more computer programmers.
There are almost 80 different PNPs in Canada, each with its own set of eligibility criteria. If you qualify for just one of them, this could be your ticket to Canada!
3 – Become an international student
Canada is a destination of choice in the world for international students. This is due to the large schools in the country, the affordable tuition fees and the positive attitude towards newcomers. But! Canada also allows international students to apply for permanent immigration after the end of their studies. For this reason, many newcomers choose to start their immigration journey by studying in Canada, and then apply for permanent resident status later!
4 – The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (AIP)
The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (PIA) was launched in 2017 to help attract more workers to Canada’s Atlantic region. The program allows employers in the Atlantic region to hire international workers from outside Canada. If an international worker receives a job offer from one of the participating employers, he receives support in his immigration process and in his establishment in Canada.
To be eligible for the AIP, you must first obtain a job offer from one of the designated employers in the program. See the full list of designated employers here.
