The majority of new migrants in Canada are from India. Every year, a huge number of Indians migrate to Canada, making it the world’s eighth-largest Indian diaspora. If you want to be one of them, there are several options available to you. In terms of expenses, the latest information on processing fees can be seen on the IRCC website. There will be hidden fees, among other things, such as the language test or medical exam.
So, without further ado, here are some ways to immigrate from India to Canada.
If you meet the requirements for one of these programs, then you can submit your application to the Express Entry pool of candidates and receive a score based on the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS).
Your age, education, English or French language proficiency, and skilled work experience all contribute to your score. IRCC determines what is “skilled” work based on the National Occupational Classification (NOC) system. Skilled occupations are those that fall into skill levels 0, A, or B, and are thus entitled to CRS points.
Regular rounds of invitation are used to invite the highest-scoring candidates to apply for permanent residence in Canada.
Provincial Nominee Program
The Canadian provinces and territories created Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) in order to address regional labour market concerns. Except for Nunavut and Quebec, almost all of Canada’s provinces and territories participate in the program. PNPs are divided into two categories: “enhanced” programs that are aligned with Express Entry, and “basic” programs that work independently.
Candidates for enhanced programs are drawn from the Express Entry pool. If you earn a provincial nomination through one of these PNPs, your overall score will be increased by 600 CRS points. This award will propel you to the top of the pool, putting you in a position to receive an ITA in a later Express Entry draw.
For those who are not eligible for Express Entry, Base PNPs may be an option for them. To apply for a base PNP, you must first apply to the province, and if you are eligible, you will be nominated. You can then apply to the federal government for permanent residence once you get your certificate.
Study Then Work in Canada
Immigrants who worked and studied in Canada before applying for permanent residency had a higher earning potential than those who arrive from overseas. According to a recent study, nearly half of Indian international students become permanent residents within five years of receiving their study permit, which is the highest rate of any country. The foreign student option, however, is not for everyone.
The tuition fee is much higher for international students than for Canadian students. The scholarship may be available depending on the school you attend and the study program you are enrolled in.
A study permit is required to study in Canada. During the school year, you can work up to 20 hours per week and full-time during academic breaks.
However, the TFWP’s Global Talent Stream is a work permit program that permits tech employees in specific occupations or who are hired at partner organizations to obtain an accelerated work permit. Because the employer is exempt from the LMIA’s advertising requirement, the application is completed significantly more quickly. Because the IMP exists to advance Canada’s broad economic, social, and cultural policy objectives, no LMIAs are required. Significant Benefit, Charitable and Religious workers are only a few of the subcategories of this program. The Intra-Company Transfer is an example of an IMP program. This program is for essential employees in specific positions who seek to relocate from an Indian branch to a Canadian site.
Citizens and permanent residents of Canada have the option of sponsoring their spouse, common-law partner, children, parents, and grandparents. Only certain relatives, such as a brother, sister, aunt, or uncle, can be sponsored by Canadians in specific circumstances. They are unable to sponsor relatives who are criminally or medically inadmissible. You must be over the age of 18 and in an ongoing, genuine relationship with a Canadian who can financially support you and any children you may have in order to be sponsored as a husband or common-law partner.
Your spouse or common-law partner can sponsor you from abroad if they are a Canadian citizen. Permanent residents, on the other hand, will have to sponsor you from within the country.
During the process, you, as the spouse, can be inside or outside of Canada. You will be handled as an outland applicant if you are in India or another nation. If you apply as an inland applicant from within Canada, you may be eligible for a spousal Open Work Permit.
