When immigrating to Canada, immigration applicants have more than 100 different permanent residency routes to choose from.
India is the number one source of migrants coming to Canada from overseas.
According to the census, there were around 1,374,710 Indian-origin people in Canada in 2016. Since then, over the last few years, the number of Indian immigrants has significantly increased.
In 2019, a fifth of the 341,000 immigrants who were welcomed by Canada were Indian nationals. Indian nationals made up just 14% of Canada’s immigrants in 2015.
Indians accounted for almost half of the principal applicants who were invited to apply for a permanent residence between 2017 and 2019 while analyzing the distribution of individuals who applied via the Express Entry scheme. In contrast, only 7% of invitations were given to immigrants from Nigeria and China, Canada’s second and third most common source of immigrants.
Although the key route to Canadian permanent residence is Express Entry, there are more than 100 economic immigration services to choose from. Here is a review of some of the choices that Indian people and the world have open.
Especially for eligible employees, Express Entry is the most common way to immigrate to Canada. You must first apply for one of Canada’s economic class immigration programs in order to join the Express Entry pool: the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), the FSTP or the CEC.
For an English or French language examination, you will also need results, and you will need to get an Educational Certification Evaluation for any degrees, diplomas, or certificates you have received outside of Canada.
You will be given a score based on your human capital characteristics once you are in the pool, such as your age, job experience, education, language skills and other variables. The Detailed Rating System is the basis of your ratings.
Express Entry draws are regularly held by Canada to invite the top ranking applicants to apply for permanent residency.
Nominations from provinces
In addition to Express Entry, a provincial nomination for permanent residence can be received by candidates. This could be a choice if you are interested in a particular Canadian province or territory.
Provinces typically appoint people to meet their regional labor needs. Both provinces and territories participate in the Regional Candidate Program (PNP), with the exception of Quebec and Nunavut.
Either of two types may be provincial programmes: base programmes or enhanced programs.
Enhanced services are where applicants will also need a profile for Express Entry to apply. With basic services, candidates will directly deal with the provincial government.
They are granted an additional 600 CRS points if a candidate wins a provincial nomination and can basically guarantee receipt of an Invitation to Apply (ITA).
A hundred pathways
Canada has several more programs, including the Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot, in addition to economic-class immigration programs and the numerous PNPs, where small remote groups can appoint foreign workers for permanent residence.
Moreover, Quebec has its own immigration programs designed for both French-speaking and bilingual applicants.
