Permanent Residence

Canada is one of the most popular destinations for immigration, with a welcoming attitude and a high standard of living. For individuals looking to immigrate to Canada as a permanent resident, there are several options available, one of which is the Express Entry system.

It is important to note that, as an immigrant, you are subject to the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) and the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations (IRPR). These laws and regulations outline the eligibility requirements, application procedures, and other important information that you need to know to successfully obtain your visa.

The Express Entry system is an online system that allows skilled workers to immigrate to Canada. Immigrants are evaluated based on their ability to settle in Canada and contribute to the country’s economy. The system ranks eligible candidates based on a point system known as the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). Applicants can earn points based on factors such as age, education, work experience, language proficiency, and adaptability.

To qualify for Express Entry, applicants must meet the eligibility criteria, which include having at least one year of skilled work experience, meeting the minimum language proficiency requirements, and having sufficient funds to support themselves and their family members.

Once the applicant has met the eligibility criteria, they can create an Express Entry profile and enter the pool. The pool is regularly reviewed, and the highest-scoring candidates are invited to apply for permanent residency. The invitation to apply is issued based on the current needs of the Canadian job market.

Upon receiving an invitation to apply, the applicant must complete the application process within a specified time frame, which usually takes around six months. The final decision is made by the Canadian government after reviewing the applicant’s application and supporting documents.

Overall, immigrating to Canada as a permanent resident through the Express Entry system is a straightforward process for skilled workers who meet the eligibility criteria. With its welcoming attitude and high standard of living, Canada remains an attractive destination for immigration.

The process can be daunting though, not to worry, the Canadian government has advised those who cannot apply for immigration themselves to use a representative that is approved to represent them because of the reality that immigration law can be complex and confusing.
