Everything You Need To Know About Immigrating To Canada

Besides a host of requirements it is also important to understand the Canadian credential recognition system. Speak to your immigration consultant about these to ensure the best possible outcome of your application.

Basically your immigration options to Canada are:

Skilled workers and professionals

For people who meet certain education and work experience requirements and want to settle and work in Canada (outside of Quebec).

Skilled immigrants are chosen as permanent residents based on their ability to settle in Canada and take part in the Canadian economy. They are assessed on their:

• English and/or French language skills,
• education,
• work experience, and
• other factors that have been shown to help newcomers prosper in Canada.

As of January 2015, there is a new system to manage how people with skilled work experience apply to immigrate to Canada. It is called Express Entry.

Under Express Entry, people will first fill out an online profile that includes their language test scores, their Educational Credential Assessment (if they need one) and outlines their work experience. There is no cost to complete and submit an Express Entry profile.

Based on their profiles, candidates will be ranked against others in a pool. On a regular basis, CIC will issue invite top candidates from the pool to apply for permanent residence. Only those who get an Invitation to Apply from CIC will be able to apply.

Under this new system, most complete applications will be processed in six months or less.

Skilled trades

For people who want to become permanent residents based on being qualified in a skilled trade. The requirements are similar to skilled workers and professionals.

Skilled immigrants are chosen as permanent residents based on their ability to settle in Canada and take part in the Canadian economy. They are assessed on their:
• English and/or French language skills,
• Education,
• work experience, and
• Other factors that have been shown to help newcomers prosper in Canada.
