Canadian Immigration APPLICATION  process

Planning to apply for Canadian immigration? Begin the application process now. Become a Canadian permanent resident through the BC Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).

British Columbia has its unique Provincial Nominee Program that allows the province to nominate foreign nationals that meet the eligibility requirements for Canadian permanent residency and are particularly interested in living in British Columbia.

Currently, the BC Provincial Nominee Program offers two immigration pathways for skilled workers.

 

Skills Immigration

  • Skilled workers (skilled tradespeople, managers, and professionals)
  • Healthcare professionals (registered nurses, physicians, and other allied healthcare workers employed in provincial health authorities)
  • International graduate (those who earned a degree or diploma from a Canadian college or university)
  • International post-graduate (those who earned a master’s or doctorate degree in the natural, applied or health sciences from a B.C. university)

Express Entry BC

  • Because of this pathway, British Columbia is permitted to use the IRCC Express Entry system to find candidates to nominate for the BC PNP.

Program Requirements

1. With job offer (except for Skills Immigration-International Post-Graduate and Express Entry BC-International Post-Graduate)
2. Meet NOC requirements
3. Comply with BC wage rates for the position
4. Canadian Language Benchmark level 4
5. Meet income requirements
Aside from these, each category has different Canada permanent resident requirements. For Skills Immigration and Express Entry BC, 200 is the maximum score:

While a job offer can help you realize your dream of immigrating to Canada, it’s not that easy to obtain, particularly if you have no relatives or friends that can help you find an employer in Canada.

First, you can try to look for job openings through Canadian job sites. You can also search for Canadian websites and check their career pages if they have vacancies for positions you are qualified for.

Also, in case you didn’t know, Saskatchewan and Nova Scotia have immigration programs that do not require job offers.

Do you want to immigrate either to Nova Scotia or Saskatchewan? Watch these videos:

According to the Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) is a paper that you, as an employer, need to submit and get approval for before you can hire a foreign worker.

In the LMIA form, provide important information about the position, as well as about the number of Canadian workers that applied and were interviewed.  Furthermore, give a full explanation of why the Canadian applicants were not considered. The Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) performs the evaluation. This ensures that the employment will not create a negative impact on the Canadian labor market.

Before you apply for a LMIA, you have to know if you need one because not all programs that let you hire temporary foreign workers require a LMIA.

Accomplish and submit all the required documents, including the LMIA application form and the employment contract, to the Service Canada Centre (except when the position is located in Quebec). Make sure the papers you submit are only copies; keep the original documents. You may still need these in the future.

Please make sure your application is complete; otherwise, your paper won’t be processed. 

If you would like assistance in filling out the LMIA application form, you are more than welcome to contact us at inquiry@sureimmigration.com and one of our competent and friendly immigration professionals will gladly help you.

  • dependent
  • relatives
  • adopted child
  • parents
  • grandparents

If you are a Canadian citizen or you are already a permanent resident of Canada and you are at least 18 years of age, you can sponsor family members and relatives to move to Vancouver, BC, or anywhere in Canada. More importantly, you can do so even if you have no current job!

To start:

1. Check your eligibility for the Canadian family sponsorship
2. Determine whom you will sponsor:
a. spouse or common-law partner
b. dependent child
c. adopted child
d. relatives
e. parents
f. grandparents
3. Learn your responsibilities as a sponsor before you start your application
4. Fill out, and sign the forms included in the application package
5. Gather all the documents required
6. Pay the required fees
7. Submit your application package

Based on the steps above, applying for the Canadian family sponsorship so they can move to Vancouver, BC, or to any other province and city in Canada looks fairly easy. However it’s just as easy to misinterpret a request or make a mistake. We strongly recommend you contact us so that one of our immigration consultants can help you with this process.

Canada offers students like you the chance to study in the country. But, make sure to enroll at a designated learning institution (DLI) — a college or a university allowed to accept international students. In addition, if you would like to work after graduation, choose a DLI that offers a post-graduation work permit.

Send your application to the school. As soon as you receive an acceptance letter, you may start your Canadian study permit application. You can do this even if you are still in your home country. Along with your study visa, you will receive your study permit so you can enter Canada.

Contact us as we will help you through the process. Remember to include ‘Canadian study permit’ in your email subject.

The period of validity of your study permit depends on the length of the study program you enrolled in plus an extra 90 days.

Student Direct Stream

Fortunately, you can apply for a student permit faster (can take up to 20 days, depending on the situation) if you are a legal resident living in:

  • the Philippines
  • China
  • Vietnam
  • India
  • Pakistan
  • Morocco
  • Senegal

Know more about Student Direct Stream eligibility requirements. Email us now at inquiry@sureimmigration.com and include ‘Canadian Student Direct Stream’ in the email subject line.

Post-Graduation Work Permit

A post-graduation work permit will allow you to work after you have completed your program or degree from a DLI in Canada. As a result, you gain Canadian work experience that can subsequently offer significant help to your Canadian permanent residency goal.

Check the eligibility requirements. Next, gather documents and fill out all the forms if you are eligible to apply then submit within 180 days after obtaining your final marks. Apply for a post-graduation work permit now.

Have you found skilled workers overseas? Do you need help in preparing their documents and forms so they can work and eventually become permanent residents of Canada?

Before hiring overseas skilled workers, make sure that they meet the eligibility requirements for both the work permit and permanent residency applications. If this is something that you think will take most of your time, we can provide you with assistance.

 

It can be tricky finding the right in-home caregiver that ticks all the boxes. If you find yourself struggling finding ‘the one’ we can help you. We have a wide international network and access to a broad variety of skilled foreign caregivers.

Sure Immigration can help you find a caregiver in three ways:

1. Facilitate the entry of the in-home caregiver you found.

It’s common for families in Canada to find the overseas caregivers they want to hire on their own. However, they are either unfamiliar with the complexity of the immigration laws in Canada or have no extra time to familiarise themselves with them. We can take over this process and take care of everything needed.

2. Look for an in-home caregiver who currently works in Canada and is in search of new job opportunities.

There are many caregivers already in Canada through the Temporary Foreign Worker Program. Should you decide you want to hire one that’s already here, we can use our extensive network to find and connect you to potential candidates.

3. Find a foreign in-home caregiver who wants to work in Canada.

Many families in Canada prefer to hire overseas caregivers because it is the most convenient and most affordable solution. We can help you find a foreign in-home caregiver that suits both your requirements and your budget. We provide expert assistance for a fast and hassle-free immigration process.

Let’s get started! Contact us by sending us an email or giving us a call.

As a skilled worker, you can apply to immigrate to Canada if you have the education, skills and experience that can eventually contribute to its economy. Other eligibility requirements include:

  • language ability
  • age
  • valid job offer
  • adaptability
  • proof of funds

If you have a partner or spouse who is also a skilled worker, choose who will be the principal applicant. Of course, you will need to base your decision on who is more likely to be eligible and earn higher points for the Express Entry system or the PNP. Learn more about working as a skilled worker in Canada. Email us at inquiry@sureimmigration.com or fill out our Free Canada Express Entry Online Assessment so we can check your eligibility.

Get the chance to work in Canada as a caregiver through the Home Support Worker Pilot, regardless if you are inside or outside of Canada. This immigration program makes it easier for you not only to work in Canada as a caregiver but also to become a permanent resident of Canada. You can already submit your work permit application together with your permanent residency application even if you have no Canadian work experience yet! More importantly, you can also process the permanent residency application of your family members that will come with you to Canada. Grab this opportunity now! Click here to learn more about the Home Support Worker Pilot and how it can help you work and live in Canada with your family members. Answer our Free Canada Express Entry Online Assessment now.

As a newcomer to Canada, your mind is filled with excitement as you look forward to your new life in the country. You will have many things going on: arranging and rechecking of your documents, document translations (if necessary), and exchanging your money to Canadian currency.  Moreover, you also worry about kids’ schooling, checking transportation options, and getting a mobile phone and Internet access! Fortunately, this is not an issue with Canada as there are organizations offering services that will enable successful transition and integration. Have you found a job already? Working should be your primary objective so you can reach your goal. Where, when and how do you start?

Ask for referrals from people you know who are already in Canada. Also, checking Canadian job sites and company websites is an important part of your job search. We’d love to help you with this! Email us at inquiry@sureimmigration.com.

Are you planning to immigrate to Canada? Therefore, obtaining an Educational Credential Assessment or ECA Report is important.

What is an Educational Credential Assessment for immigration purposes?

ECA, for immigration purposes, evaluates your credentials and compares it to the standards in Canada. More importantly, it confirms the authenticity of your foreign credentials, including diploma, degree, and certificate. The ECA result reveals your current education’s equivalence to that of the Canadian education.

Keep in mind that obtaining an ECA is not the same as having your professional credentials recognized in Canada. If part of your plan is to work in a regulated profession, learn how to become a licensed professional in Canada. In general, licensing is under the care of provincial or territorial regulatory bodies. For that reason, contact the regulatory body in the province you intend to work in.

Why and when should you get an ECA Report?

Getting an ECA Report can subsequently help increase your points in the Express Entry or Provincial Nominee Program. Therefore, if you are looking for ways to improve your score, this can be one of them.

How does the process work? Email us now and we would be glad to assist you.

Sure Immigration lives up to its name as it surely helped a lot in my BC PNP application. I am a computer network technician and eligible under the BC Tech Pilot…but I have no idea how to start. When I did a search on Google, I found them. Everything was made clear that obtaining a job offer and applying for permanent residency becomes a breeze! Thanks for the big help, guys!

-Ryan

I didn’t have a hard time getting my work visa, thanks to Sure Immigration. I applied online for work and was luckily picked by the company I applied in.  They immediately sent me the job offer letter and luckily introduced to Sure Immigration for the processing of my papers. The whole process has been hassle-free and I am now on my way to Canada to work! Thanks people of SI. 🙂
