The immigration process
Skilled workers are expected to have the skills, education, work experience, language ability and other qualities needed to find a job in Canada. Though those do not guarantee an immigrant a job in Canada they can secure successful immigration to Canada.
Most skilled worker applicants are required to attend a selection interview with an immigration officer. Such interviews are held to ensure the information in the application is accurate, to verify documentation, and to help applicants relocate to Canada. Interview waivers are granted at the discretion of the immigration officials.
The Immigrant Investor Program seeks to attract experienced persons and capital to Canada. Investors must demonstrate business experience, a minimum net worth of CDN $800,000 and make an investment of CDN $400,000.
The Entrepreneur Program seeks to attract experienced persons who will own and actively manage businesses in Canada and who will contribute to the economy and create jobs. Entrepreneurs must demonstrate business experience, a minimum net worth of CDN $300,000 and are subject to conditions upon arrival in Canada.
Self-employed persons must have the intention and ability to create their own employment. They are expected to contribute to the cultural or athletic life of Canada. They may create their own employment by purchasing and managing a farm in Canada.
Family Class Immigration:
Family reunification is the key objective of Canadian Immigration Policy. Canadian Citizens or Permanent Resident 18 years of age or above can sponsor their family or relatives to have the Canadian permanent resident and citizenship.
Who I can Sponsor
Spouses, common-law or conjugal partners 16 years of age or older*;
Parents and Grandparents
Dependent children, including adopted children;
Children under 18 years of age whom you intend to adopt;
Children under guardianship;
Brothers, sisters, nephews, nieces or grandchildren who are orphans; under the age of 18 and not married or in a common-law relationship; or
you may also sponsor one relative of any age if you do not have an aunt, uncle or family member from the list above who you could sponsor or who is already a Canadian citizen, Indian or permanent resident.
You may sponsor a spouse or common-law partner from within Canada if they have been living with you in Canada and have maintained their legal temporary status. Sponsorship of a spouse or common-law partner includes their dependent children whether inside or outside of Canada.
A son or daughter is dependent when the child:
is under the age of 22 and does not have a spouse or common-law partner;
is a full time student and is substantially dependent on a parent for financial support since before the age of 22, or since becoming a spouse or common-law partner (if this happened before age 22); or
is financially dependent on a parent since before the age of 22 because of a disability.
If you want to sponsor any of the above listed relatives or family members, you may have to meet certain income requirements.
The sponsor starts the immigration process by obtaining an application from Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC). The type of application and submission procedure differs depending on the relationship between the sponsor and the applicant, and whether the applicant is abroad or already in Canada.
Should you qualify for permanent residence under any of the sponsorship programs available, we will immediately advise you. Then, should you be interested in proceeding to the next step, We can help you.
Provincial Nominee Program:
Most Provinces in Canada have an agreement with the Canadian Government that allows them to play a vital role in selecting immigrants who wish to settle in that province. It depends on the province where you apply for nominee because every province has established his own criteria and procedure to choose Immigrants. This program allows each province to nominate immigrants who will contribute to the particular labor and economic needs of that province.
However, even if a candidate is nominated by a province, Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) has the final decision making authority on admissibility. If you are nominated by a province, you will still be required to make a separate application to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) for permanent residence. It should be noted that Provincial Nominees are not assessed on the selection factors of the Federal Skilled Workers Program.
At present, the following Canadian provinces have a Provincial Nominee Program:
Prince Edward Island
Newfoundland and Labrador
