Apply for Permanent Resident

Express Entry System

Express Entry System is a Federal permanent resident application intake system that is being used to manage applications. In order to become a permanent resident of Canada through the economic class, one has to qualify to either the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Skilled Trades Program, or the Canadian Experience Class. Some Canadian provinces and territories also use this system to recruit candidates for their different application streams.

Having an express entry profile is the first step in the system. To create a profile, an applicant will have to provide information about their skills, work experience, language ability, education, and other details. Information provided at this stage is crucial and can either make or break a permanent resident application. Once a profile is created, the applicant is placed into a pool of candidates and the system will assign a score which represents the comprehensive ranking in the system. Those applicants who will rank higher than the required score as per the Ministerial Instruction, will be invited to apply to become a permanent resident of Canada.

Federal Skilled Worker Program

This program is designed to ensure Canada maintains a highly skilled workforce who contributes to Canada’s economy. If you are a skilled worker, you may apply to become a permanent resident in Canada, without having to come as a worker at first.

Factors that are being considered in this program includes: age, education, knowledge of English and/or French, work experience, previous study or work in Canada, relatives in Canada, spouse’ qualification, and job offer. However, the absence of one of the factors mentioned above does not necessarily mean that one will not qualify for the program. It is very possible to become a permanent resident without a job offer or even without having a relative in Canada.

At present, all skilled occupations may qualify in this program. This is the best time to book your appointment for consultation and apply to become a permanent resident of Canada.

Canadian Experience Class (CEC)

This program is intended for those who have worked in Canada on a skilled occupation for at least one year in the last three years and who has the required language level needed for the job.

Caring for Children, Caring for People with High Medical Needs or the Live-In Caregiver Program

These programs were established to meet the labour market shortage for caregivers in Canada. Once a temporary foreign worker has worked in Canada for at least 24 months, they may possibly apply for permanent resident from within Canada. Jobs included in this program includes home child care provider, registered nurses and registered psychiatric nurses, licensed practical nurses, nurse aides, orderlies and patient service associates, and home support workers and related occupations.

Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program

The Provincial Government of Alberta can nominate an individual and its family to be eligible to apply for permanent resident to the Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada. There are different streams and categories under this program that may help you become a permanent resident of Canada such as:
• Employment driven streams which includes skilled workers, semi-skilled workers, and international graduates
• Strategic recruitment stream such as the compulsory and optional trade, Engineering occupations category, and post-graduate worker category
• Self-employed farmer stream

Love Canada Immigration Consultancy can help you decide if the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program is the right stream for you. Call us today for assessment.

Provincial Nominee Programs

Aside from the Federal programs, each of the ten provinces and three territories in Canada have their own provincial nomination programs. They have their own streams and sets of qualifications to which one may qualify for. The province/territory will nominate applicants who they believe have the intention to settle in their province/territory and who can positively contribute to their economy. Having ties to a province/territory, though not required, is definitely helpful in this kind of application. Some assessment criteria may include age, skills, language, education, work experience, financial capacity, business skills, and net worth. Once nominated, the applicant applies for Permanent Resident.

Love Canada Immigration Consultancy will assess your eligibility for nomination under the Provincial/Territorial stream especially if you have ties in a certain province/territory or if the Federal Programs cannot apply to your situation. Contact us and we will help you.

Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program
