Immigration to Canada is not easy. There are many steps one has to take in order to successfully apply and get approved for Canadian immigration. Also, the process can take a number of months and in some cases a few years. But if you know what options are available, you can improve your chances of success and avoid âpitfallsâ, frustrations and delays.Â Here, you can learn how to move to Canada through permanent residence, working, visiting, and even studying in Canada.
How to Migrate to Canada: 5 Options for Migrating to Canada in 2023
1. Â Express Entry Program
Canadian Immigration Program that allows immigrants to live and work in Canada as skilled workers through Express Entry. The new system will allow Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) to pro-actively assess, recruit, and select immigrants who are skilled and/or possess the relevant qualifications under federal economic immigration programs:
- Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)
- The Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)
- The Canadian Experience Class (CEC)
The Express Entry program will also allow individual provinces and territories to use the system in order to recruit suitable candidates as part of the Provincial Nominee Programs so that labour market demands are met.
Usually, this is one of Canadaâs most popular programs, but we havenât seen an FSW draw since December of 2020, and a CEC since September of 2021. There have also been slower processing times due to the Covid-19 outbreak, but we encourage you to continue to apply as things should be back to normal by some time in 2023.
Family Reunification remains a cornerstone of Canadaâs immigration policy. Families in Canada can sponsor their relatives to come to Canada on a permanent basis. In order to qualify to sponsor your relative, you have to be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident. Also who you can sponsor is: your spouse and children under the age of 22 (there are some exceptions to this). Sponsoring your parents or grandparents is no longer an option at this time. However, you can bring them to Canada under the Super VisaÂ Category.
3. Â LMIA Work Visa
Many applicants for Canadian immigration first get Canadian job offers, apply for a work visa and then on that basis, immigrate to Canada. The LMIA involves securing a Canadian job offer, having the Canadian employer apply for an LMIA through Service Canada, and then the applicant applying for the work permit after the LMIA is approved. This is a very involved process but can lead to Canadian permanent residence.
4. The ProvincialÂ NomineeÂ Programs (PNP)
The PNP route is becoming an increasingly popular way to immigrate to Canada. Canadian provinces such as Alberta, Ontario, British Columbia and others have developed their own immigration programs that often lead to a fast-track process. However, the PNP category generally requires that applicants reside in the respective Provinces after they arrive in Canada. Further, most PNPs require a job offer from a Canadian employer in order to qualify.
5. Canadian Investor Immigration
The Investor Category is designed for high net worth individuals who have owned or managed businesses overseas. By allowing experienced business people to invest in the Canadian economy, they are contributing to Canadaâs overall growth and prosperity. There are essentially two investor programs in Canada: The Federal Investor Program and the Quebec program. Both programs are somewhat similar and require that the applicants have a high net worth and make a large investment in an approved investment fund for a 5-year period. Investor immigrants can bring their spouses and children as dependents on their applications.
As of June 2014, applications still in the backlog of the federal Immigrant Investor Program and Entrepreneur Program were terminated. The Quebec Investor Program and Quebec Entrepreneur Program were not affected.
