Changes in Canada Immigration in 2021

Canada recorded 17,115 new permanent resident arrivals in May, as immigration numbers dropped further behind the levels required to hit ambitious targets.

The number of arrivals, although greater than the same period of 2020, is the lowest monthly total of 2021. Since welcoming 24,675 newcomers in January, numbers have fallen every month.

Canada has welcomed 108,730 new permanent residents in the first five months of the year, up from 84,155 in the same period of 2020.

Data released by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) earlier this week shows the country welcomed over 70,000 new immigrants in the first quarter of this year. This Q1 2021 figure is well above the 30,000-40,000 newcomers Canada had been landing per quarter since the start of the pandemic.

IRCC is guided by the most ambitious immigration plan in the country’s history. In late October 2020, the department’s minister, Marco Mendicino, announced the 2021-2023 Immigration Levels Plan.

Canada aims to welcome 401,000 new immigrants in 2021 which would tie the record set in 1913. It looks to welcome even more newcomers over the next two years.

By way of comparison, Canada welcomed just 184,000 immigrants last year, due to coronavirus disruptions, which was well short of the 341,000 newcomers it welcomed in 2019.

The rationale of the current levels plan is to welcome high levels of immigration to support Canada’s post-pandemic economic recovery.

In light of its COVID-19 travel restrictions, Canada is prioritizing transitioning temporary residents to permanent residence during the pandemic.

The main way IRCC is doing this is by holding Express Entry draws that target individuals currently in Canada. Express Entry is the primary way Canada welcomes economic class immigrants. The economic class accounts for nearly 60 per cent of the new immigrants Canada admits each year.

Express Entry draws have targeted Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC) candidates. The CEC has comprised the overwhelming majority of successful Express Entry candidates in 2021.

On February 13, IRCC invited 27,332 CEC candidates to apply for permanent residence, which was almost six times larger than the previous Express Entry draw record.

In addition, IRCC launched six new permanent residence streams last week that aim to transition some 90,000 essential workers and international graduates to permanent residence. The English-speaking international graduate stream reached its quota of 40,000 applicants in just over 24 hours.

Extra Good Reasons to Apply for Canada

Permanent Resident Visa in 2021
Immigration target set to 401,000 this year, a number never before-

The government has stated that more people will be invited through Canada Permanent Resident Visa this year.

New Immigration Minister introduced this year-

Canada has a record that with every change in Ministry, the rules become more flexible for applicants to apply for Canada immigration.

Recent rule changes in points system-

The recent changes have made it more convenient & favorable for applicants to apply for Canada Permanent Resident Visa this year.

CRS Score will go down to an unimaginary number-

CRS score this year has reduced in each draw & will reduce more, making it a benefit for people with low scores and a wish to migrate to Canada.

PNP will open frequently this year-

Government announced that provinces need more immigrants & a large number of eligible applicants will receive nominations from different provinces for Canada Permanent Residency.

What’s changed?

The passing grade for points remains at 67 out of 100.

Language (maximum 24 points): From 16 to 28 points – the 12-point increase is the single largest category in the point roster. The test itself will no longer be a self-declared test but will go through either IELTS or CELPIP external testing bodies. Secondary language points will be reduced from 8 to 4.

Language levels with corresponding points will include soft skills and workplace language proficiencies like:

Basic: Understands the main points and important details of a conversation and can write routine business correspondence; able to participate in small group discussions and express opinions and reservations about a topic.

Moderate: Understands technical conversations and reading material in their line of work; asks questions, analyzes and compares information in order to make decisions.
High: Participates in business meetings and debates; understands a broad range of general and abstract topics; writes formal and informal notes and summary documents.

Age (maximum 12 points): The old system gave 10 points to anyone between 21 to 49 years and continued awarding points for age until 53. The revised selection grid would favour younger immigrants by awarding a maximum of 12 points for applicants aged 18 to 35, compared to applicants aged 21 to 49 who receive maximum points for age under the current grid, with one point being deducted per year with no points from age 47.

Education (maximum 25 points): Points will be based on Canadian educational credentials so all applicants will have to submit their qualifications to a credential evaluation service. Those wishing to work in regulated occupations will need the Canadian regulatory body to approve them.

A list of assessment organizations designated by the minister will be made available soon. The assessment of foreign educational credentials will provide prospective newcomers with a more realistic understanding of how their credentials compare to education standards in Canada. It will also give them the opportunity to upgrade their education prior to coming to Canada if they choose.

Work experience (maximum 15 points): The number of points allocated for work experience will be reduced to 15 from 21. However, if applicants have at least one year of Canadian work experience, they would get double the points than with the previous system.

Arranged employment (maximum 10 Points): The previous process of Arranged Employment Opinion has been eliminated. All applicants must now apply to Service Canada for Labour Market Opinions (LMO). Adaptability could add an extra 5 points.

Adaptability (maximum 10 points): One-year of skilled work experience will get 10 points under the new rules. Spouses, however, would get 5 points for the same one-year experience. In order to claim 5 points for a relative in Canada, the relative must be at least 18 years of age.

Travel / Immigration restrictions across different Countries

Lifestyle in AustraliaTravel / Immigration restrictions across different countries

 

Impact on Tourism:

Covid-19 has destroyed the tourism industry across world. Now that we have vaccines and cases are getting reduced, it’s almost time that all the countries open international borders and resume tourism industry.

Covid-19 is also proving to be a catalyst in the Travel & Tourism sector’s quest for innovation and the integration of new technologies such as biometrics, which would enable a more seamless traveller experience.

As global Travel & Tourism starts seeing the light at the end of the tunnel and work to accelerate the resumption of safe international travel takes place, it is essential the sector rebuilds trust to travel. While the pent-up demand is significant, ever-changing travel restrictions have affected consumer confidence to book.

Impact on Immigration:

Covid-19 pandemic is having an unprecedented impact on immigration policies and processes worldwide. In order to contain the spread of the virus, dozens of jurisdictions implement new measures or change existing ones daily.

  • Travel restrictions:Although wide-ranging entry restrictions have been steadily decreasing, most countries still have partial bans for some foreign nationals (sometimes excluding residents of the destination country) based on particular outbreaks.
  • Quarantine requirements:There are still many varied upon-entry quarantine requirements across the world. In some countries, proof of negative COVID-19 test results, vaccination and/or health certificate rules have started to replace strict quarantine requirements.
  • Health assessments:Additionally, on-arrival health questionnaires and health assessments have become common pre-boarding requirements for international flights.

 

Canada immigration:
As per the latest news release on 5th July, fully vaccinated travellers arriving by land or air, who are eligible to enter Canada and who comply with specific criteria will not be required to quarantine or complete a day-8 test. In addition, fully vaccinated travellers arriving by air will not be required to stay at a government-authorized accommodation (GAA) to await their on-arrival test result.

 

Australia Immigration:

You cannot go to Australia unless you are an Australian citizen, permanent resident or in an exempt category. The Department of Home Affairs looks after this entry ban.

If you’re travelling to Australia, you must provide evidence of a negative COVID-19 PCR or RT-PCR test to your airline when checking in for your flight at the departure point. Rapid antigen tests will not be accepted. Testing must be conducted at an accredited testing facility, a self-administered COVID-19 test undertaken at home without supervision is not acceptable.

 

New Zealand Immigration:

Borders remain closed – those who are permitted to travel to New Zealand must stay in Managed Isolation and Quarantine for 14 days.

Now that all the countries are slowly reducing the travel restrictions and relaxing the entry criteria, It is time for all of us to get vaccinated. Even if the restrictions are relaxed, the travellers may have to show the proof of Covid-19 vaccination to avoid any further complications from the tourism/immigration.

6 ways to get your Canadian PR

6 ways to get your Canadian PR

Are you looking for opportunities to Migrate to Canada? Want to settle abroad with higher salary and better benefits? Migrating to Canada might be a good option considering that it is one the most loved country by migration aspirants.

How do you migrate to Canada? Which programs are easy? Which program suits you? We will know about that in this article.

More than 60 Canadian immigration programs are available to individuals seeking to immigrate to Canada. Emigrantz’s comprehensive assessment method evaluates your eligibility across all categories.

The path to Canadian citizenship begins by acquiring Canadian permanent resident status. Similar to a “Green Card” in the United States, a Canada Permanent Resident Card will enable you to work and live in Canada. The best way of determining if you qualify for Canadian Permanent Residency, through one of Canada’s many immigration programs, is to fill out our assessment form. Our team of experts will carefully review your assessment and get back to you within 24 hours.

 

What are the categories to get your permanent residence?

  • Federal Skilled Worker: Federal Skilled workers are foreign nationals with experience in specific occupations and who are issued Canadian permanent resident visas based on their ability to become economically established in Canada. Skilled Worker applicants are assessed based on a number of factors that forecast the likelihood of successful integration into Canadian society. Factors include, but are not limited to, the applicant’s work experience, language abilities and education.

Click here to know about the basic requirements to apply under ‘Federal Skilled Worker’

  • Provincial Nominee Program: Only the federal government of Canada may issue permanent resident visas, however, provincial nominee programs authorize provinces and territories to nominate particular foreign nationals to apply for their Canadian permanent residency. Provinces and territories nominate applicants based on the labour market and economic needs of each province or territory.

Once an applicant is nominated by a province or territory, he or she will be given a nomination certificate that is to be submitted with their application to the federal government for their Canadian permanent resident visa. Nearly every province and territory has a provincial nominee program, and applicants to those programs must intend to live in the province or territory they apply to.

  • Canadian Experience Class: Temporary Foreign Workers are ideal immigration candidates and likely to establish themselves in Canada. The Canadian government recognizes that immersion in Canadian society as a temporary foreign worker significantly increases the likelihood of economic integration as a permanent resident. Members of the Canadian Experience Class have typically established important networks in Canada as temporary foreign workers and international students.
  • Federal Skilled Trades: The Canadian Federal Skilled Trades program is a new Canadian immigration program for people who want to become Canadian permanent residents based on being in a qualified skilled trade. Applications are assessed based upon the applicant’s ability to become economically established in Canada.

Note : The scope of this program is limited as the number of applications are limited as per certain jobs .

  • Family Class Sponsorship: One of the many objectives of Canadian immigration law is to see that families are reunited in Canada. The Canadian government places significant emphasis on the importance of family unity and values.  Canadian immigration law is designed to reflect that priority through several streams relating to family reunification in Canada.
  • Business Investor / Entrepreneur / Self-Employed: Canada’s Federal Business Immigration program is designed for those foreign nationals who wish to use their business experience to immigrate to Canada. Applicants can only apply for one of the four classes listed below and the class cannot be changed after the application is submitted. A Canadian immigration lawyer at our firm can assist you and ensure a smooth application process. Below is a list of the four different classes available under this program, all of which have their own criteria and requirements:
  1. Immigrant Investor
  2. Federal Entrepreneur
  3. Self-Employed Persons
  4. Start-Up Visa Program

Migrate to Australia with LMT Work Permit

How can you migrate to Australia with LMT work permit?

Labour Market Testing (LMT) is a type of application requirement for all Temporary Skill Shortage subclass 482 Nominations.

Given the timeframes and costs associated with Nominations, LMT is an essential component that must meet very specific requirements for TSS visa applications.

Without proper LMT evidence, a TSS visa application can fail, costing businesses essential time and money.

Essential requirements for LMT:

  • Evidence of at least two (2) separate complete advertisements
  • Advertised in Australia, in English.
  • On a recruitment website with national reach (for example, jobactive.gov.au, Seek, Jora, Indeed)
  • If you are an Accredited sponsor – on the approved sponsor’s website

The Australian market needs skilled workers to satisfy the current offer. Given the labor shortage, many Australian businesses need to look at overseas workers to find the people they need to cover existing roles and secure new projects.

The employers willing to employ an overseas worker must apply for a sponsorship. There are precise requirements to satisfy and not all the employers are eligible to sponsor, nor all the employees can be sponsored.

But what does getting a sponsor mean?

The sponsor is an employer offering a contract to an overseas employee. This type of visa, most commonly known as VISA 457, VISA 187 or Employer Sponsored Visa, grants the future employee the full right to live and work in Australia, under certain conditions attached to it.

According to the situation, our Registered Migration Agent evaluates the whole scenario and addresses your case, advising the right visa you may qualify for.

TSS visa 482: This is the most common Australia visa used to employ temporary overseas skilled workers in Australia up to four years. It involves a three-step application process:
1. The employer’s sponsorship application needs to be lodged;
2. Once approved as a sponsor, the employer is required to identify the position to be filled and the skills and experience required for the position by nominating an occupation from the Short Term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL) and a Medium and Long Term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL).
3. The employee can then apply for a sponsored visa.

You can apply for this Australian visa at the same time your employer lodges their applications to sponsor and nominate you.

Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme visa 187: This subclass allows employers in regional Australia to fill full-time, permanent skilled positions they are unable to cover through local workers. The application lodgment follows a three-step process, involving other governmental entities:
1. The employer must apply for certification of a nominated position with a Regional Certifying Body (this is not required under the temporary residency transition stream);
2. Once certified, the employer lodges the nominated position with the Department of Immigration and Border Protection;
3. The employee can apply for an Australian visa to work in the country.

Employer Nomination Scheme visa 186: This sponsor visa allows Australian employers to sponsor highly skilled foreign employees for a permanent visa to work in Australia. Employees can be overseas or temporarily resident in Australia. It involves a two-step process under the Direct Stream:
1. Employer nominates a position included in the Medium and Long Term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL).
2. Once the position has been approved, the employee can apply for a permanent visa to work in Australia.

Family Sponsorship Program

The Family Class Sponsorship Program reunites families by enabling adult permanent residents or citizens to sponsor a relative for immigration to Canada. To be eligible, the person seeking sponsorship must be a:

• Spouse, common-law or conjugal partner
• Dependent child
• Parent
• Grandparent
• Sibling, nephew, niece, or grandchild under 18 years who is unmarried and whose parents are deceased

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has policies in place to address family separation. However, there are some conditions that affect foreign nationals’ ability to travel, even to see family.
All non-essential travelers to Canada are subject to coronavirus-related public health measures. When you get to the border, you will need to show a negative COVID-19 test. Before you visit family, you will need to quarantine for 14 days. There may be some flexibility for compassionate reasons, but otherwise you will have to demonstrate to a border officer that you have a quarantine plan. It should show where you will stay, and how you plan to get essential items such as food, groceries and medicine.
If you are travelling by plane, you will have to stay in a government-approved hotel while you wait on the results of a COVID-19 test. This could be up to three days, and the fees are not refundable.
Immigration to Canada during the Covid-19 Pandemic:

The person sponsored must live outside Canada, unless they are residing legally in Canada temporarily, for example with a work or study permit.
Canada is still accepting and processing family sponsorship applications.
 Family class immigration has been the least affected by the travel restrictions.
 Immediate family members of citizens and permanent residents are still allowed to enter the country, spousal and common-law sponsorship applications are being processed as usual, with IRCC allowing some flexibility in submitting incomplete applications.
 If you are traveling by air, you need to follow all airline requirements and pass a health check conducted by airlines before you’re allowed to board your flight. Anyone who shows symptoms of COVID-19 will not be allowed to enter Canada by air.
 When you arrive in Canada, they will assess your health before you leave the port of entry. You must have a plan to quarantine for 14 days when you arrive in Canada. This is mandatory, even if you have no symptoms. If you don’t have a plan, you should not travel to Canada.
 Only people who provide essential services, for example, truck drivers who regularly cross the border to maintain the flow of goods, are exempt from the quarantine requirements.
Here are some of the other conditions depending on your relation to your in-Canada relative, and their immigration status.

In a press conference on June 9, Canada’s Minister of Health, Patty Hajdu, announced that Canada will end the mandatory 14-day quarantine requirement for fully vaccinated travellers entering Canada, but there are important caveats. First, this will only apply to travellers who are “currently permitted to enter Canada.” This means that Canada’s borders remain closed to the vast majority of foreign nationals. Only those who meet one of the exemptions listed below will be able to enter the country.
Next, fully vaccinated travelers will still have to undergo some testing and quarantining. A negative PCR test taken within 72 hours pre-departure will still be required for travelers, and fully vaccinated travelers will have to take a COVID-19 test upon arrival in Canada. Fully vaccinated travelers will then have to remain in quarantine until receiving a negative result from their Day 1 test. Notably, fully vaccinated travelers can quarantine at a suitable location of their choosing — they will not be required to stay in a government-authorized hotel.

Finally, Canada aims to end the 14-day quarantine requirement for fully vaccinated travellers in early July. An exact date has not yet been set, and the implementation is dependent on Canada’s COVID-19 epidemiology continuing to improve. If cases and hospitalizations begin to rise, border measures might be extended further.

Notably, only those who have been vaccinated with one of the COVID-19 vaccines approved for use in Canada will qualify for the reduced quarantine measures. Currently, Canada has approved four COVID-19 vaccines: Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, AstraZeneca, and Johnson & Johnson. Travelers must have received their final dose at least two weeks prior to entering Canada.

A date and plan to re-open the Canada-U.S. border expected soon: According to reporting by Bloomberg, Canada is expected to announce a plan to re-open the border with the United States. This plan could be announced within days. It is expected that the border re-opening will be phased, first allowing entry by fully vaccinated travelers. Get full details on the latest updates in our guide to Canada’s border re-opening.

Canada extends travel restrictions with all countries until at least June 21, 2021: In a tweet issued on May 20, 2021, Public Safety Minister Bill Blair announced the extension of Canada’s travel restrictions with all countries, including the United States (the U.S. restrictions are managed through a separate order). Restrictions are now in place until at least June 21, 2021.

All about Visit Visa!

 

Hey Readers!

 

In this article, we will be talking about what is visit visa, who can apply and what are the benefits of getting a Visit visa.

 

Let’s get started!

A Temporary Resident Visa (TRV), also referred to as a visitor visa, is an official document issued by a visa office that is placed in your passport to show that you have met the requirements for admission to your dream country as a temporary resident (either as a visitor, a student, or a worker).

How long can you stay in the country with a visitor visa?

Canada:

Most visitors are allowed a six-month stay from the day they entered Canada. If the officer authorizes a stay of less than six months, they will indicate in your passport the date by which you must leave Canada. If you want to stay longer than your authorized stay, you should apply for an extension at least 30 days before the authorized end of your stay.

Australia:

Visit visa allows you to visit Australia, either for tourism or business purposes, for up to three, six or 12 months. Applicants will have to pay a fee to submit their application.

Types of Visit Visas issued:

  • Visit / Tourism
  • Study
  • Work
  • Temporary Resident

 

Who can apply for visit visa?

Visitors who are not Canadian / Australian citizens or permanent residents of Canada / Australia, and are legally authorized to enter Canada / Australia to:

  • Visit on holiday (vacation),
  • Visit family,
  • Conduct business, etc.
  • Visitors are restricted in length of stay and subject to various conditions.

 

What is the eligibility criteria to get Visit visa?

There are a number for basic requirements for a visitor visa. Requirements include:

  • Have a valid travel document (passport)
  • Be in good health
  • Have no criminal or immigration-related convictions
  • Prove that you have ties such as a job, home, financial assets or family that prove you will be returning to your home country
  • Prove that you will leave Country at the end of your visit
  • Have enough money for your stay which depends  where and how long you stay

 

Learn about eTA Visa:

An Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) is an entry requirement for visa-exempt foreign nationals travelling to Canada/Australia by air. An eTA is electronically linked to a traveller’s passport. It is valid for up to five years or until the passport expires, whichever comes first.

With a valid eTA, you can travel to Canada as often as you want for short stays (normally for up to six months at a time). You do not need an eTA for travel within Canada.

An eTA doesn’t guarantee entry to Canada / Australia. When you arrive, a border services officer will ask to see your passport and other documents. You must convince the officer that you are eligible for entry into Canada / Australia.

Everything you need to know about Canadian Student Visa
Leave a commentLeave a comment

Student VisaEverything you need to know about Canadian Student Visa

 

Why Canadian student visa? Because it is one of the best countries to study in. It’s a popular opinion from the international students who studied in Canada.

How long can you stay in Canada with a study permit?

A study permit is usually valid for the length of your study program, plus an extra 90 days. The 90 days let you prepare to leave Canada or apply to extend your stay.

1. If you are taking prerequisite courses

If your school asks you to take courses before they accept you into the main program (you have conditional acceptance), your study permit will be valid for the length of those courses, plus 1 year. When you get accepted into the main program, you must then apply to extend your stay as a student.

2. If you finish your studies after your study permit expires

If you don’t finish your courses before the date on your permit, you must apply to extend your stay as a student. Incase if you don’t, you need to stop studying and leave Canada.

3. If you finish your studies before your study permit expires

If you finish your studies early, your permit will stop being valid 90 days after you complete your studies, no matter what day is printed on the study permit.

Prerequisites to apply for study permit:

  • Should be enrolled at a designated learning institution (DLI)
  • Prove that you have enough money to pay for your:
    • Tuition fees
    • Living expenses for yourself and any family members who come with you to Canada and
    • Return transportation for yourself and any family members who come with you to Canada
  • Obey the law, have no criminal record and get a police certificate (if required)
  • You are in good health and get a medical exam (if required)
  • Prove to an officer that you will leave Canada when your study permit expires

Working while you study in Canada

If you like to get a part-time job to help support yourself while studying in Canada, you can now qualify to work on or off-campus for up to 20 hours during university semesters and full-time during breaks such as the winter or summer holidays, without the need for a work permit.

To qualify, you must:

  • Have a valid study permit
  • Be a full-time student
  • Enrolled at a designated learning institution at post-secondary level or, in Quebec, a vocational program at secondary level
  • Studying in an academic, vocational or professional training program that leads to a degree, diploma or certificate that is at least six months in duration.

You will also need a Social Insurance Number (SIN) from Service Canada to work in Canada or to receive benefits and services from government programs.

Study permit will become invalid 90 days after you have completed your study program, so you will need to acquire a post-graduation work permit if you want to stay in Canada after your studies and seek work. This is valid for three years.

New Pathways released by IRCC

 

Hey There!

Canada has a new announcement for migration aspirants. Recently, the federal government of Canada has announced new pathways for Canadian permanent residency for more than 90,000 international graduates and essential temporary workers.

 

The following is a list of the six new immigrations streams as well as their intake caps.

  • Workers in Canada – Stream A for health care workers (20,000 applications)
  • Workers in Canada – Stream B for essential non-health care workers (30,000 applications)
  • International graduates (40,000 applications)
  • Workers in Canada – Stream A for French-speaking health care workers (no limit)
  • Workers in Canada – Stream B for French-speaking essential non-health care workers (no limit)
  • French-speaking international graduates (no limit)

 

These special public policies will be granting permanent resident status to international graduates and temporary workers that were –

  • Already in Canada, and
  • Possess the skills as well as experience required by Canada for fighting the COVID-19 pandemic and accelerating the economic recovery of Canada.

 

Effective May 6, 2021, IRCC will start accepting applications under 3 streams – for temporary workers in healthcare [20,000 applications], for temporary workers in other selected occupations [30,000 applications], and for international students that had graduated from a Canadian institution [40,000 applications].

 

These 3 streams will remain open until November 5, 2021, or until their intake limit had been reached.

In order to be eligible for any of these 3 steams, the international graduates and workers must meet certain specific eligibility requirements. These are –

  • Workers must have a minimum of 1 year of Canadian work experience in a health-care profession or any other pre-approved essential occupation.
  • International graduates must have completed an eligible Canadian post-secondary program within the previous 4 years [not earlier than January 2017].

 

The skilled newcomers and international graduates to be welcomed into Canada under the new streams will help in the creation of jobs in Canada, driving long-term growth in Canada.

These public policies will be applicable to workers in 40 health-care occupations, along with 95 other essential jobs across a diverse range of fields that include caregiving and food distribution.

 

Why is Canada offering these Programs?

 

The travel restrictions in place to slow the spread of COVID-19 has had major impacts on the labour market. Canada typically depends on immigrants coming in from abroad to address labour shortages.

Canada has set ambitious immigration targets for 2021, looking to welcome 401,000 new immigrants by the end of the year. Due to its commitment to meeting this target, Canada introduced the six new immigration streams. These streams help those who are already residing in the country get permanent residence.

Half of the streams are for French-speakers. This is because Canada is looking to increase bilingual and French-speaking immigrants outside of Quebec.
