There are 100+ immigration programs for Indians to immigrate to Canada. You can apply for PR Visa or Provisional Residency Visa through these programs. The most prominent ones are:
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.
As per the IRCC guidelines, here is the approximate amount of funds required to Immigrate to Canada.
(For each extra kid below 10 years: add 1,000 CAD; For each extra kid above 10 years: add 2,000 CAD)
*This amount mentioned to immigrate to Canada is based on the IRCC guidelines on June 9, 2022.
Immigration to Canada has 6 major streams. These are:
Each stream caters to a diverse group of immigrants and has unique eligibility requirements. Here we will consider the requirements for the FSWP:
Skilled work experience
You must possess a minimum of 1 year of work experience that is full time and continuous. This is out of the last 10 years prior to your submission of PR application. Equivalent continuous part-time work will also qualify. This must be in the Skill Type B, A, or 0 in the Canada NOC – National Occupational Classification.
You must demonstrate that you possess language proficiency of minimum CLB 7 – Canadian Language Benchmark. The test results must be from an organization that is designated by IRCC for language testing.
You must offer either an overseas educational credential or a Canadian educational credential. An Educational Credential Assessment – ECA Report must be offered from a designated agency. This is to prove that the overseas certificate/degree/diploma is on par with the Canadian credentials.
The minimum points for basic eligibility for FSWP are 67 out of 100. Those who score below 67 will not qualify. It must be noted here that basic eligibility factors score and CRS score (Comprehensive Ranking System) are different.
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.
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:
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:
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.
There are two options when filling an application through the PNP program:
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
The criteria for evaluating the PR application varies from province to province.
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.
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.
There are various immigration programs under which you can migrate to Canada from India. Some popular programs are:
Each immigration program has its own set of criteria. If you are applying under a specific program to immigrate from Canada to India you must meet these requirements. But these programs have general minimum requirements common to all of them:
To immigrate to Canada from India, Express Entry and the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) are two popular options. Here are the steps in the Canada immigration process from India:
Receive confirmation of your PR status
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.
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.
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. But there are more than 60 options available and you may not be aware of them and will not know the best option where you meet the eligibility criteria. A Canada visa consultant will suggest the right immigration program for you. Their knowledge and awareness will help you choose a program that is best suited for you.
If you believe you can handle the immigration process on your own, then you are probably not aware of the legal requirements, clauses, and rules. If you undertake the immigration process based on what you have understood, you run the risk of making a mistake. But with the help of a Canada immigration consultant, you will understand the rules and regulations and the steps in the process to submit an error- free application.
You will have to submit the application form and supporting documents at specific dates. A Canada immigration consultant will help you submit your application on time
There are three popular immigration programs under Canada skilled immigration to help skilled workers to migrate to Canada.
