Canada is a well known country for immigration in India. This is because of the culture similarity and high employment and education opportunities. On the top of it, as for now the immigration procedure and rules are not that stringent, making the country an ideal choice to immigrate. Canada is known for its diverse culture, good living standards, high employment opportunities and low racism scenario for international students. Indian citizens specifically living in North India are attracted towards the country for its cultural similarity.

The immigration system in Canada is different than what other countries have to offer. Canada has express entry system, Quebec skilled worker program system and province nominee program system for obtaining a permanent resident visa.

Following is a detailed explanation of what these systems are and how can they be beneficial:

Express entry system started in 2015 where factors like education, qualifications, age and work experience are taken into considerations apart from English and French proficiency. This system requires the score of IELTS test, getting Educational Credential Assessment done and other details as and when required. If there are no hurdles and you score a decent rank, PR application is the next procedure. Three main streams of Express Entry include –

  • Federal Skilled Workers – for people with work experience outside Canada
  • Federal Skilled Trades Program – for people with experience in skilled trades
  • Canadian Experience Class – for people with work experience in Canada but staying as temporary residents

Quebec skilled worker program

There is an agreement between Quebec and Canadian government to accept immigration applications as per the requirement of the province. The applicant here is required to apply in two stages- the Quebec Government to obtain certificate of selection and then IRCC.
