Canada has a reputation for being one of the friendliest countries in the world. Canadians are known to have a courteous, warm, and welcoming attitude towards foreigners, and is also considered to be one of the safest places to live. What makes Canada truly stand out from other countries is that while most countries have shut their immigration programs down due to the coronavirus pandemic, Canada has been quick to open migration opportunities and has smashed the all-time immigration record by landing 401,000 immigrants in 2021. Canada is fast adapting and is also inviting skilled people to move to Canada to help bolster the economy.
Canada provides high social security benefits, such as free medical care and free education. Such benefits and quality of life have attracted people from various communities across the world to find a way to land in Canada. The good news is, they have several options to get in Canada immigration plans provided by IRCC (Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada).
Canada offers many options for various groups of people with skills, education, experience, and business ideas to follow their dream life in Canada, such as,
Skilled Workers Immigrants
Skilled Workers are the backbone of Canada’s immigration system with suitable skills, education, work experience, age, and language abilities under one of Canada’s official languages. IRCC is expecting to welcome 241,500 economic class immigrants to take part in Canada’s economy, counting roughly 59% of Canada’s immigration target. If you are a professional who has honed the most sought-after skills in the Canadian market, also looking for a better quality of life and higher income, with a dream to live with your family, you may be eligible to settle in Canada.
Family Class Immigrants
Family reunification is known to be one of the pillars of Canada’s immigration system. In this system, the family members of the applicants are another group of immigrants with a high chance of being accepted. Family class immigrants count for about 26% of IRRC’s immigration target in the year 2021-2023. A permanent resident or a citizen of Canada can sponsor their relatives such as their spouse, partner, child (or adopted child), or any other family members to gain permanent residency under the family class of Canada immigration program.
Business Class Immigrants
This group of immigrants helps create new opportunities in local markets and promote Canada’s economy. Entrepreneurs, start-up founders, investors, the self-employed, and businesspersons who are not yet Canadian citizens are eligible to apply. If you fall in one of these categories then it’s fairly easy for you to get Canada’s permanent residency and offer your services to the country. Candidates are only required to gain commitment from angel investors or venture capital funds to prove their business or services are profitable.
Humanitarian and Other Types of Canada Immigration
In Humanitarian and Compassionate Applications, permanent residence is given to people on the basis of humanitarian, refugee, and compassionate grounds. About 15% of new applications summing up to about 66,000 are based on these cases. These applications are filed in Canada and it is for people who do not have legal status in Canada and have concerns about security in their home country, like those who are in danger of being tortured or being afraid of returning to their country, can settle in Canada.
Experience Class Immigrants
Individuals who are temporary Canadian residents like foreign workers or students can apply for a permanent residency. Since they already have lived, studied, or worked in Canada, they’re more likely to get permanent residency given they meet the required eligibility criteria.
