CANADA IMMIGRATION PROCESS
Canada has among the world’s most streamlined immigration programs. There are multiple pathways by which one can migrate overseas to Canada. These include:
- Express Entry
- Quebec Selected Workers Program
- Provincial Nominee Program
- As an Entrepreneur/self-employed person
- For family
- As an Investor
The list of programs is dynamic and can change at any point of time. Each of these programs comes with its own set of application criteria and is targeted at a specific category of applicants.
Canada’s Express Entry is the most sought-after immigration programs in the world.
Launched in 2015, Express Entry is said to be the first immigration program to use a points-based system for assessing the eligibility of individuals looking to migrate to Canada.
- The federal department of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) handles Express Entry submissions.
- The visa processing time under this program can extend up to six months or less.
- 67 points will be needed to create an Express Entry profile.
Provincial Nominee Program (PNP):
If you opt for the PNP to apply for your PR visa, these are the steps:
- You must apply in the province or region where you desire to settle.
- You could be nominated by the province to apply for a PR visa if your profile meets the eligibility criteria.
- You can apply for your PR visa after you are nominated by a province.
When making your application under the PNP, you can choose a province from where it will be easy to get a nomination based on your profile.
A provincial nomination under Canadian PNP can help you in two ways – (1) make you eligible to apply for your permanent residence directly to IRCC, and (2) automatically get you CRS 600 as ‘additional’ points on the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS).

What is the maximum age to immigrate to Canada?
The official website of the Government of Canada does not specify any age limit to apply for Canada PR. However, an age ceiling is defined generally. This is because, after a specific age, applicants find it tougher to meet the criteria for 67 points. This is because they will not obtain any points for their age.
The maximum age limit to apply for Canada PR will be 46 years. This is because applicants above this age do not get any points. It must be noted here that Canada PR is based on a system of points.
How much money is needed for immigrating to Canada?
According to Citizenship and Immigration Canada, you will have to prove to have settlement funds of minimum $10,000 CAD per individual. Additional $ 2,000 CAD will be required for each dependent accompanying the immigrant to Canada. The exception for this is if you have a pre-arranged job offer in Canada.
It must be noted here that the threshold settlement funds required can vary. This is depending upon the location in Canada and is based on the size of the family.
Whereas, the needs of every family are diverse and diverse cost of living can be found in different regions in Canada. The below basic guidelines can be followed to determine the budget of a newcomer to Canada excluding airfares and moving costs:
- 1 Adult immigrating individually: $ 25,000 CAD
- 1 Couple moving together: $ 30,000 CAD
- 1 Couple with 1 kid below 10 years: $ 33,000 CAD
- 1 Couple with 1 kid above 10 years: $ 35,000 CAD
- For each extra kid below 10 years: add $ 1,000
- For each extra kid above 10 years: add $ 2,000
Essentially, the above-explained sum of cash will offer you adequate breathing space to settle in a new nation. This is prior to getting a job and starting to earn an income. It must suffice for basic living expenses for 4 to 6 months depending on how well you budget. Any amount lesser than this will make it really tough.
The amount of money you need to support your family depends on the size of your family. To calculate the size of your family you must include
- your spouse or partner
- your dependent children and
- your spouse’s dependent children
Include your spouse or dependent children even if they’re
- permanent residents or Canadian citizens
- not coming to Canada with you
This table shows the minimum amount you need to immigrate to Canada as of June 9, 2022. If you have more money, you should list the full amount in your profile or application.
|Number of family members||Funds required (in Canadian dollars)|
|For each additional family member||$3,586|

All the qualified candidates must create a profile in the Express Entry System. ECA and IELTS score is mandatory for this. The profile is then offered ranking out of 1200 for diverse factors. This includes Work Experience, Language Proficiency, Education, Age, etc.
CIC holds regular draws from the Express Entry pool and specifies minimum CRS score for the draw. All the qualified candidates in the pool with scores above the specified CRS minimum score are offered an ITA. They can submit an application for Canada PR Visa.
I got overall band 5 in IELTS (General Training) and trying to get PR via consultancy. Am I eligible to migrate from India to Canada?
Yes, application for Canada PR Visa can be submitted by applicants with IELTS 5 bands score. There are several immigration pathways such as Atlantic Pilot Program, PNP or if you have a valid job offer.

To apply for this program, you must submit an Expression of interest and qualify under the type of job mentioned under the Skill types. Based on your inputs your profile will be given points and you will have to score a minimum of 67 points to find a place in the applicant pool.
Officials from provinces and employers in Canada go to this pool to search for talent that will meet their needs. If you score high points you will get an invitation to apply for a permanent residency (PR). The number of invitations (ITAs) are however based on the Annual Immigration Level of the country.
Once you have a fair idea of the requirements for this program, you will first do an assessment to see if you have the necessary qualifications that meet the eligibility requirements. You will need to:
- Chalk out a plan of action to score adequate points in your low score areas
- Assess how best you can score these points to find a place in the applicant pool
How does the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) work?
Under this program Canadian provinces and territories nominate individuals for Canadian Permanent Residency. This program was created to help Canadian provinces attract international talent and solve their talent shortage crisis. The provinces are on the lookout for professionals with experience in technology, finance or education, marketing or healthcare.
With this program you have the option to apply to some of the best Canadian provinces which include:
- Prince Edward Island
- Nova Scotia
There are two options when filling an application through the PNP program-valid job offers from Canadian companies or through Express Entry.
You could qualify through the individual In-demand Occupation Lists of some provinces. You will get an invitation from the province if your occupation is on the list. You can then go for a Canada PR Visa application.
Apart from the mandatory documents, applicants for the PNP program must present their educational and professional credentials.
What are the application options for the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)
There are two options when filling an application through the PNP program:
- Through Express Entry
- Non-Express Entry
Express Entry Stream
There are 2 ways to apply:
You can apply for a nomination by contacting the province or territory and apply for a nomination under the Express Entry stream.
If you get a positive response from the province or territory to nominate you, you can create an Express Entry profile or update your profile if it already exists.
The other option is to create an Express Entry profile and indicate the provinces or territories you are interested in. If the province sends a ‘notification of interest’ you can then contact them and then apply through the Express Entry system.
You must meet the eligibility requirements for a successful outcome of your application.
Non- Express Entry Stream
Under this option you can apply to the province or territory for nomination under the non-Express Entry stream. If you meet the eligibility requirements and qualify through the individual In-demand Occupation Lists of some provinces, you will get a nomination from the province if your occupation is on the list. You can then apply for a Canada PR Visa.
You will now have to submit a paper application for your PR visa. The processing time is usually longer than through the Express Entry system.
Steps in PNP application for PR visa
- Apply in the province or region where you desire to settle.
- If your profile meets the eligibility criteria, you could be nominated by the province to apply for a PR visa.
- Apply for your PR visa after you are nominated by a province.
The criteria for evaluating the PR application varies from province to province.
What are the eligibility requirements for the PNP program?
To apply under the PNP program you must meet the minimum requirements for the province’s non-Express Entry streams or must be nominated under that stream.
If you do not receive a nomination, then you must contact he province directly.
How can you choose the right immigration program for moving to Canada?
To choose the right immigration program, you must do your research to decide which one is right for you and more importantly which will ensure a greater chance of success in getting your PR visa. You must understand the application process of each program to help you choose the right immigration program.
This is where the help of an immigration consultant will be valuable. The consultant will help you with submitting your application on time so that you do not miss out on the deadlines or closing dates that will be a setback to your application success.

- Get your Education credentials assessment (ECA)
- Complete your language ability tests and get the required IELTS score
- Create your Express Entry profile and get your profile included in the Express Entry pool
- Apply in the province or region where you desire to settle if you choose the PNP option
- Calculate your CRS score
- Get your Invitation to Apply (ITA)
- Undergo mandatory medical and criminal background checks
Receive confirmation of your PR status
Age limit for immigration to Canada from India
The age limit to apply for immigration to Canada from India is 46 years. If you are above this age, you will not score any points under the age criteria when applying under the Express Entry program. This can lower your CRS score.
However, you can still earn points on other factors like skills, language proficiency, job offer, education etc. These factors can give you the required eligibility score to apply for immigration to Canada from India.
How to settle in Canada from India
The first step in the process to settle in Canada from India is to create an Express Entry profile. The Express Entry program is one of the most popular ways to migrate to Canada. The visa processing time under this program can extend up to six months or less.
Here are the steps involved in the application process:
Step 1: Complete your ECA
If you have done your education outside Canada, you should complete an Educational Credentials Assessment or ECA. This is to prove that your educational qualifications are equal to those awarded by the Canadian educational system.
Step 2: Complete your language ability tests
As the next step in the Express Entry program, you should take the required English language proficiency tests. The recommendation is a score of 6 bands in IELTS. Your test score should be less than 2 years old at the time of application.
Step 3: Create your Express Entry profile
As a first step, you will have to create your online Express Entry profile. The profile should include credentials like age, work experience, education, language skills, etc.
Step 4: Calculate your CRS score
The profiles in the Express Entry pool are ranked based on the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. Immigration candidates who submit their profiles to the Express Entry pool are assigned a CRS score out of 1200 points.
Factors such as age, work experience, adaptability, etc. determine your CRS score.
Step 5: Get your Invitation to Apply (ITA)
The Express Entry draw is conducted every two weeks. The CRS score usually varies with every Express Entry draw. Your profile gets selected from the Express Entry pool, provided you meet the CRS score for the Express Entry draw. After this, you will get an ITA from the Canadian government following which you can start the documentation for your PR visa.
Canada visa consultants
There are genuine reasons why you should hire a Canada visa consultant registered with the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC) to help with your immigration process to Canada.
You will be aware of only a few immigration programs such as Express Entry, Provincial Nominee Program or the Quebec Skilled Workers Program to migrate to Canada.
