Canada Immigration: Explore Your PR Visa Optionsby Nationwide Visas Canada Immigration Services
Between 2021 and 2023, Canada immigration targets to welcome more than 1.2 million new permanent residents. The Express Entry program is only used to admit about 25% of applicants. That's correct: other programs, not Express Entry, account for the admission of three out of every four new permanent residents. Less than 10% of those who yearly obtain the right to work in Canada are admitted via Express Entry, even when temporary residents are included.
The three primary Express Entry Program fundamental requirements are frequently not met by applicants on the CRS calculator. It occurs as a result of inadequate training, a lack of work experience, or poor language proficiency. There are still a lot of candidates looking for new immigration routes. Here are several alternate routes you can take to obtain Canadian immigration.
- 1 Provincial Nominee Program
Canada is giving the provinces more authority over the selection of incoming immigrants. The PNP is now more significant than it has ever been. You may be aware that some provincial nominations increase your Express Entry Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score by 600 points, also provinces have linked many of their immigration streams with Express Entry. These are referred to as PNP streams' "base category". You can now use a tool in our PNP Live Tracker to identify the best choice for you. In 2021 the admissions rate was 81,500.
The provinces' nomination programmes may be the simplest way to obtain PR in Canada, depending on your profile. There are numerous nominee programmes, and each has different criteria for qualifying. PNPs enable provinces to address their specific immigration requirements. PNPs often aim to fill labour market gaps, therefore they will prioritise applicants with experience in in-demand professions.
- 2 Quebec Skilled Workers Program
One of Quebec's immigration routes to permanent residency is the Quebec Skilled Worker program (QSWP). All applicants must provide proof of a minimum level of expertise in skilled labour due to the program's focus on skilled workers. A minimum score on a points assessment grid must be met in order to be eligible for the points-based immigration scheme known as QSW. Although it is not a requirement for this programme, applicants who speak French well may receive a higher score on the points assessment grid. To be considered for this programme, eligible candidates must submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) via the Arrima portal online.
The ability to speak French is a requirement for skilled worker immigration to Quebec. Even if you only have rudimentary French skills or none at all, you can still be eligible. Quebec recently declared that over the next three years, immigration numbers will rise dramatically and a higher proportion of new immigrants will be qualified employees. Last year's admissions intake was 22,400.
- 3 Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program
Applicants need to have a legitimate employment offer in order to be eligible for the Atlantic Immigration Program. Typically, the candidate must get a Labour Market Impact Assessment in order to receive a Canadian employment offer that is acceptable for immigration purposes (LMIA). For the Atlantic Immigration Program, this is not necessary. Instead, the employer that makes the job offer must be listed.
Beginning in 2017, the Atlantic Immigration Program was an experimental project that was later made permanent. Over 6,000 people are annually welcomed to the Atlantic provinces thanks to the AIP. Since it was established three years ago, the Atlantic Immigration Pilot has experienced tremendous success. The admissions goal has been doubled as a result, and immigrants are beginning to see more opportunities in Canada's Atlantic regions. There were 6,250 admissions each year in 2021.
