5 main categories of immigration for permanent residence Canada
Skilled Worker programs are based on your work experience. This work experience could be inside of Canada (usually requiring a work permit) or outside of Canada. Many provinces have their own programs with their own point systems.
Student Programs are based on having studied in Canada. So you may start your immigration plan based on coming to Canada to study first.
Business Programs are based on you managing or investing in Canada. Some programs allow you to simply buy your visa without investing in a business or managing a business.
Family or friend programs are based on you having close families or friends in Canada. These people will need to offer support to you.
Refugee and Humanitarian programs are for people who have unusual hardship.
Do you want to apply to be a permanent resident in Canada?
A permanent resident is allowed to stay and work in any job in Canada for the rest of their life. A new immigrant is required to become a permanent resident before they can become a citizen after 3 to 4 years.
Steps to apply for permanent resident Canada visa who not have family in Canada
For most people who do not have close family members in Canada, they will apply for permanent residency in one of two ways.
#1 You can apply through a provincial government program called a “PNP” – Provincial Nominee Program. Each province in Canada has the power to select immigrants and each province has their own requirements.
#2 You can apply to become a permanent resident through the Express Entry program of the Federal government.
The total time for application processing varies widely depending on the type of application and the province. It will usually take at least 1 year. However, you may be able to visit, work or study in Canada while the application is in process.
What is “Express Entry”?
If you are not applying through a Provincial program, then you are likely going to apply through the express entry system of the federal government. There are two steps that need to be done to assess if you will be given Permanent residence through the Express Entry system.
First, you must qualify in any one of three federal programs – the Federal Skilled Worker program, the Canadian Experience Program or the Federal Skilled Trades Program. Each program has its own requirements.
Second, if you do qualify in one of those programs then you may register to get into the “pool” of candidates who are waiting to apply. You will then be ranked by a point system against the other candidates in the pool. The people who are ranked the highest will be allowed to submit an application. However, those who are not ranked high enough may never be allowed to submit an application even though they were allowed to register as candidates. Using this system, the government selects the most qualified candidates and you have no advantage of applying earlier than other candidates.
Who qualifies under Permanent Resident Express Entry?
The main factors in the Express Entry ranking system are:
people with a Provincial government approval or an approved job offer in Canada
language skills – assessed using a language test – The general version (not the academic version) of the IELTS is the most common english test used
education (The Canadian equivalency of your education is assessed at a Canadian agency).
work experience in Canada
Learn 40 ways to obtain a permanent resident visa in Canada
Surprisingly to many, there is more than 1 way to obtain a permanent resident card in Canada.
As you can see, getting permanent residency is complicated. There are different options, many requirements for each option and different processing times. We start by assessing you and your family to see which option will fit your needs. You may want the fastest option or the option that you have the best chance of success for.
Sometimes you need to improve your education (perhaps by getting a Study Permit in Canada) or you need to improve your language skills. Sometimes you need to get an approved Canadian job or a Canadian trade certificate to qualify. Maybe you realistically do not have any good options and you need to be told the honest truth rather than being given false hopes.
So you see that you need to start by seeing if you are going down the right path. So we start by giving our clients a thorough consultation with a Canadian immigration lawyer with 22 years of experience.

Increasing Number of Candidates for Canadian Immigration Expected to be Invited to Apply in 2016

The year that was 2015 has been a transitional one with respect to Canadian economic immigration programs. Beginning with the launch of the Express Entry selection system on January 1, 2015, and with a newly-installed government that promises to deliver more for future and existing candidates for immigration to Canada, it has been a year with much change in the air.

2016 looks set to continue in the same manner, and the prospects for Express Entry candidates in particular appear positive.

What’s in store for 2016?

During a webinar hosted by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) on December 16, 2015, a CIC Policy Analyst made some important announcements regarding the short- and medium-term future of Express Entry:

“The number of invitations issued per round is expected to increase as the pre-Express Entry inventory of applications is finalised. In turn, it is expected that the minimum score of those that are invited to apply will drop,” she stated.

Moreover, while answering a question about international students in Canada, the Policy Analyst added that:

“We [CIC] are not currently planning on changing the points for international students. We are monitoring how international students are doing in the system, and we expect that in the new year when our rounds start growing — to meet our new levels plan — that the score will reduce and that international students will continue to do well at that time.”

These pronouncements follow similar ones made by CIC at the Annual Immigration Law Summit, which was held in November. Click here to learn more about comments from CIC at the Immigration Law Summit.

About the Invitation to Apply (ITA)

For many candidates throughout 2015, the primary goal has been to get in the Express Entry pool and increase their ranking within the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). Without being in the pool, individuals are effectively invisible to CIC when a draw is made. Candidates who receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) have only 60 days to submit a complete application for permanent residence.

A number of candidates so far have had to decline at least one ITA. This reality was borne out when CIC released its mid-year Express Entry report, and such situations are part of everyday discussion on the Canada Immigration Forum. With no guarantee that re-entering the pool will result in another ITA being issued at a later draw, declining an ITA typically entails a degree of risk.

With the latest news and announcements from CIC revealing that the number of candidates drawn in each draw will soon increase and, with the consequence that the CRS point requirement is set to continue to decrease, individuals interested in immigrating to Canada are increasingly looking towards the ITA and asking ‘what happens next?’

What happens when you receive an ITA?

If a candidate has the required number of CRS points in order to be invited to apply when CIC performs a draw from the Express Entry pool, he or she should expect to receive an ITA within 24 hours. The ITA is a letter that arrives in the messages section of the CIC profile.

There are, in effect, two mini-stages between receiving an ITA and submitting an application: completing the forms, and uploading documents. While some candidates in the pool may think that a full document checklist will be sent along with the ITA, in reality this is not the case. Each form must be completed in its entirety before a unique document checklist is formulated.

Completing the forms

A single applicant who has received an ITA is presented with seven new forms in his or her profile. These forms are used by CIC to substantiate the information provided when the applicant first created the profile, as well as to learn new information about the applicant and his or her family members, if applicable.

The seven forms are titled: Personal Details, Contact Details, Study and Languages, Application Details, Representative, Work History, Personal History, and Travel History. Each form has a number of sections within it.

An applicant with an accompanying spouse (or common-law partner) and/or dependant children will also be asked to complete sections for these individuals. For each dependant child, the Personal Details and Study and Languages forms need to be completed. For a spouse or common-law partner, additional Personal Details, Contact Details, Study and Languages, Personal History, and Work History forms need to be completed.

While some sections of the forms are straightforward, others can prove to be problematic. Attention to detail and thorough revision of every piece of information is key. When CICNews spoke a few months ago with Emma Hughes, the first person ever to obtain Canadian permanent residence through Express Entry, she had some candid advice:

“A lot of it is about having all the information gathered together and being able to submit it quickly. I had all my information and documents to hand and was able to submit an application quickly. For example, they ask you where you have lived for the past 10 years and it needs to be exact, and you can’t just pull that out of nowhere.”

In addition to providing an address history, all applicants are also required to provide a detailed travel history and work history timeline.

“As Emma Hughes rightly points out, you can’t just pull the correct answers and solutions out of nowhere,” says Attorney David Cohen. ”Moreover, certain issues may arise for some applicants, who would be well advised to prepare in advance for these eventualities. For example, applicants with any previous marriages, additional or prior names, a chequered immigration history, or a history of personal activities that may need further elaboration or support may find that they are concerned about how to complete the forms and provide additional supporting documentation, all the while mindful that they have only 60 days to submit everything.

“Another common concern comes with the Work History form. Just this week CICNews interviewed a man from England who told us about the disappointment he felt when his employer had made an error on an application to CIC. The employer had included the wrong National Occupational Classification code on a form, and the foreign worker had to get legal advice in order to resolve the issue.”

CRS score requirement goes down in latest Express Entry draw

The 22nd and most recent Express Entry draw took place on December 4, 2015. The CRS point requirement for this draw was 461, representing an 11-point decrease from the previous draw.

The CRS point requirement has decreased for each of the four Express Entry draws that have taken place since October 23, from 489 to 484, then to 472, before the latest cut-off point of 461. The lowest CRS point requirement of any draw so far was 450.

Re: Canada Express Entry- Latest News

#Significant Decrease in #CRS Point Requirement in 25th #Express Entry Draw for #Immigration to #Canada

The latest draw from the Express Entry pool, and the 25th since the immigration selection system was launched just over a year ago, took place on January 13, 2016. This draw sees a decrease in the number of Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points required by candidates for Canadian immigration in order to receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence.
A total of 1,518 ITAs were issued to candidates with 453 or more CRS points, representing a decrease of eight points from the previous (24th) draw. Indeed, the latest CRS “cut-off” mark is the lowest of any draw over the past three months. The lowest of any draw so far is 450, which was most recently applied on October 2, 2015.
A positive start to a new year under a new government

Since the Canadian federal election took place on October 19, 2015, a total of seven Express Entry draws have taken place. Each of these draws has selected a portion of candidates who do not have a qualifying job offer in Canada or a nomination from a Canadian province. Moreover, the CRS point requirement since the first of these most recent seven draws has decreased from 489 to 453.
This latest draw is also the second to take place within the first two weeks of 2016. In contrast, the first draw of 2015 took place on January 31.
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC, formerly known as Citizenship and Immigration Canada, or CIC) recently stated that 2016 would see more regular draws from the pool, with an increase in the number of candidates issued ITAs in each draw.
“The number of invitations issued per round is expected to increase as the pre-Express Entry inventory of applications is finalised. In turn, it is expected that the minimum score of those that are invited to apply will drop,” stated an IRCC Policy Analyst during a webinar hosted by IRCC on December 16, 2015,
The Policy Analyst added that "we expect that in the new year when our rounds start growing — to meet our new levels plan — that the score will reduce."
From 461 to 453: A small but significant difference

While a decrease of eight points between two draws may appear negligible on first glance, the difference between 461 and 453 is in many cases quite profound.
The CRS awards points based on a range of factors, including a candidate’s age, level of education, work experience (both in Canada and international), language proficiency, and whether the candidate has a qualifying job offer or provincial nomination certificate. Candidates may also be awarded points for certain combinations of what are called “skills transferability” factors, as well as the core human capital credentials of a spouse or common-law partner, if applicable. If a candidate does not have a job offer or provincial nomination, he or she may be invited to apply based on points awarded for core human capital and skills transferability alone.
The decrease from 461 to 453 allows certain candidates, who may not have been awarded a bounty of points for one factor, to compensate for this through strong credentials in other areas. This circumstance is likely to become more apparent if and when IRCC continues to increase the regularity of the draws while also increasing the number of candidates selected.

10 Facts About Canada Express Entry

There are two ways of creating your profile for Express entry – you can state a provincial Nominee and then fill out an express entry profile , or create the profile first and then update it with the PNP.
Candidates in the Canada Express entry pool have the advantage of promoting themselves directly to employers through the Canadian job bank.
An ECA (educational credential assessment) is required for applying to the express entry pool.
You do not necessarily need a job offer to apply for the Express entry pool. The same goes for a Canadian Visa. But it can help your case in case of a Canadian work visa or permit.
From the moment that a candidate receives an invitation to apply, he/she has 60 days to complete the electronic application and submit it.
It is a compulsion for you to take a language test in order to apply. This is done basically, to determine your language abilities and fluency.
You as a candidate, have the freedom of applying directly under a province of your own choosing under the PNP or the Provincial name program.
In case of married couples, only one person needs to have an invitation and they can bring their spouse and children (under 19 years of age) to Canada.
Applications from Quebec are not triaged through Express Entry. There is an exception in the case when the person is working/employed outside of Quebec.
Candidates are not necessarily required to hire an immigration representative for this process, but just like in the case of acquiring a Canadian work permit or immigrant visa/work visa, it is always a good idea to consult a professional. This helps in maximizing your chances and minimizing risk.

The latest draw from the Express Entry pool, the 30th draw since the system was introduced last year, has seen a total of 1,014 candidates being issued Invitations to Apply (ITAs) for Canadian permanent residence. The draw took place on March 23, 2016, and each candidate who received an ITA had 470 or more Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points.

This draw represents a slight decrease in the CRS point requirement, relative to the previous draw, which took place on March 9. The two most recent draws have seen a decrease in the number of ITAs issued; this factor would have had a significant bearing on the increase in the CRS point requirement for these rounds of invitations.

Groundbreaking Express Entry Draw Has #Lowest CRS Requirement of All Time


Canada’s Express Entry immigration selection system continues to grow apace, with the latest draw, which took place on February 8, having the lowest Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) point requirement of all time. Candidates with 447 or more CRS points received an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence. Moreover, this was the largest draw of all time; a total of 3,664 ITAs were issued.

This draw was also the first ever draw in which candidates with CRS scores below 450 were issued an ITA. The 450-point threshold was seen by many stakeholders as an important one, as this was previously the lowest threshold of any draw since Express Entry was first launched more than two years ago

Changes to Canada’s Express Entry CRS Coming in June

MARCH 31, 2017
A Canadian flag is pinned in a map of CanadaPour lire cet article en français, cliquez ici.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has announced that, as of June 6, 2017 French speakers and candidates with a sibling in Canada will receive additional points under the Express Entry Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). While these tweaks may not alter the make-up of the pool in a radical way, the additional points may make a positive difference to candidates who may obtain the new additional points.

In addition, registration in the Canada Job Bank will become voluntary.

The CRS in its current form will continue to be used in order to rank and select candidates in the pool, and it is expected that IRCC will continue to conduct draws from the pool until June 6, as well as after that date.

The most recent improvements to the CRS took place last November, when the number of CRS points awarded for a qualifying job offer was reduced from 600 to 50 or 200, depending on the position offered. At the same time, IRCC made a change to award additional points to candidates who had completed their education in Canada.

Before November, 2016, the CRS had not been altered in any way since Express Entry first became operational in January, 2015.

These changes taken together may been seen as part of the government of Canada’s continued efforts to optimize the Express Entry system so that more candidates with skills and experience that, according to Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen, “will help our economy and communities to grow.”

So far in 2017, IRCC has ramped up the number of candidates being invited; the first three months of last year saw a total of 9,465 ITAs issued, whereas so far this year, a total of 24,652 ITAs have been issued, an increase of more than 160 percent.

Since the launch of Express Entry, Canada has welcomed more than 43,000 landed immigrants through the Express Entry system. Nearly 90,000 Invitations to Apply (ITAs) for permanent residence have been issued in that time, with many applicants either awaiting a decision on their application or having received confirmation of permanent residence, but not having yet completed the process of landing in Canada.

The June 6 Changes

French language skills

In order to enter the Express Entry pool, eligible candidates must first prove proficiency in English or French by taking a standardized language test recognized by IRCC. Of the 1,200 points available in total under the CRS, 136 points may be awarded for a candidate’s first language, with a further 24 available for ability in a second language. Up to 100 more points are available for a candidate’s language skills within the combination (skills transferability) factors.

This will remain the case as of June 6. However, IRCC is tweaking the CRS to award additional points to candidates with French language skills, with more additional points to be awarded to French speakers who also prove their English skills.

A total of 15 additional points will be awarded to candidates who prove adequate intermediate (equivalent to Canadian Language Benchmark 7) or better French ability, and English ability of CLB 4 or lower.

A total of 30 additional points will be awarded to French speaking candidates who prove adequate intermediate or better French ability, and who also prove English ability of CLB 5 or better.

Candidates who wish to be awarded CRS points for French ability must take the Test d’Évaluation de Français (TEF).

Currently, there are other ways in which candidates may benefit from their French ability. For example, the province of Ontario operates an Express Entry-aligned French Speaking Skilled Worker Stream within the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP). In the case of this stream, a CLB of 7 in French and a CLB of 6 in English is required.

Siblings in Canada

As of June 6, candidates with a sibling in Canada who is a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of at least 18 years of age may be awarded 15 additional CRS points. These points may also be awarded if the candidate’s spouse or common-law partner has a sibling in Canada.

The candidate or his or her spouse/common-law partner must share a mother and/or father with the sibling in Canada. This relationship can be through blood, adoption, marriage, or common-law partnership.

According to IRCC, ‘having a sibling in Canada has been shown to improve health and social outcomes by accelerating a newcomer’s integration into their new life in Canada.’

Canada Job Bank

On June 6, Job Bank registration will become voluntary for all candidates. Candidates who do not have a job in Canada lined up and would like to start their job search will nevertheless be able to register for Job Bank, and this option is expected to continue to be available free of charge. Employers may use the Job Bank, as well as their own recruitment procedures, to search for and hire skilled workers.

This step follows the changes last November, which reduced the number of points that may be awarded for a job offer. Together, the two changes (from November, as well as the upcoming changes in June) show that IRCC is de-emphasizing the job factor within Express Entry, in doing so promoting human capital and skills factors.

Since Express Entry was launched, and until June 6, candidates without qualifying job offer or a provincial nomination must register in the Job Bank before they become eligible for selection.

Tweaking the system

“The government of Canada had alluded to the possibility of changes of this nature coming down the line. I think all stakeholders will be glad that the announcement comes with more than two months of warning before the changes are implemented, allowing them to prepare,” says Attorney David Cohen.

“Furthermore, these are slight changes, and nothing more. An additional 15 or 30 points is unlikely to shake up the pool in any major way, and those candidates who do benefit because of their French ability or by having a sibling in Canada — or both, for that matter — are unlikely to shoot up to the top of the ranking system as a result.

“The more fundamental improvements took place last November, and the results of those changes have clearly been of benefit to the majority of candidates and applicants. IRCC has been as good as its word in inviting more candidates based on human capital, skills and experience, and the number of candidates being invited has skyrocketed over recent months.

“Lastly, I am glad to see that registration in the Job Bank will become voluntary. This move empowers candidates and employers alike, rather than forcing them to use one specific job matching facility among many. It will allow candidates and employers alike to take their own proactive approaches to networking and recruitment, and that’s what Canada wants and needs — newcomers who are comfortable making their own decisions for the benefit of themselves and their families.”
