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

  • yourself
  • 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.

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
  • Ontario
  • Saskatchewan
  • Manitoba
  • 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:

  1. Through Express Entry
  2. 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

  1. Apply in the province or region where you desire to settle.
  2. If your profile meets the eligibility criteria, you could be nominated by the province to apply for a PR visa.
  3. 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.

  3. Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP)

Canada immigration process from India

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:

  • 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. 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.

Canada skilled immigration

There are three popular immigration programs under Canada skilled immigration to help skilled workers to migrate to Canada.

Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)

Skilled workers in various occupations can submit their profiles to the FSTP and wait for an ITA for PR visa. The government of Canada releases a list of skilled trades that are facing a shortage of labor on a regular basis. Based on this list international workers and those on a temporary work permit can apply in the FSTP.

The list of skilled trades is based on Canada’s National Occupational Classification (NOC) list.

Federal Skilled Worker (Express Entry)

This program is for skilled workers with foreign work experience who want to immigrate to Canada permanently and meet all the minimum requirements on age, education, work experience, and language ability-  English/French. The current pass mark is 67 points.

The Federal Skilled Trades Program is for skilled workers who want to become permanent residents based on being qualified in a skilled trade. Candidates must meet the required language test with, a minimum of 2 years of relevant experience in the skilled trade, have a valid Job Offer for one year or certificate of qualification in that skilled trade issued by a Canadian provincial, territorial or federal authority.

The Canadian Experience Class is for skilled workers who have one year of Canadian work experience in the recent 3 years.
