Since 2015, there have been more and more people permanently moving to Canada. This has happened with the new Canadian Express Entry program in Canada which allows people from different part of the world to get Canadian nationality on the basis of their education, language expertise, and work experience. The Canadian government has made this program very easy for everyone. There is no need to hire a travel agent or visit any office to submit your application for Canadian Express Entry program. The whole process has been done online.
The people who are interested in immigrating to Canada to work and live meet with the Canadian Express Entry criteria for at least one of the immigration programs. Currently, there are three different immigrant programs have been introduced by the Canadian government which is Canadian Experience Class, Federal Skilled Worker, and Federal Skilled Trades.
Summary of Express Entry Canada 2018:
First, we go through to understand that how one can work and live in Canada under Express Entry program, first we need to understand all the steps. Following I am sharing the quick summary to become eligible for the Canadian Express Entry Program:
- Create an Express Entry profile on Canadian Express Entry website
- Candidates will be added to the Entry pool on the basis of their points (CRS)
- Candidates will be ranked on the basis of their points under the third step
- Those who got the highest marks will be invited to apply for immigration.
- This will leads to gets the permanent resident in Canada.
What is Comprehensive Ranking System?
To qualify for the Canadian immigrate program, one needs to get highest points under the comprehensive ranking system or CRS because only the candidate with highest points has been invited by Citizenship and Immigration Canada for the next step. The ranking of the candidate has been purely based on the basis of their points.
Under CRS, the candidate needs to enter their complete bio-data because the scores have been awarded to the candidate on the basis of this information. The typical information which helps the CRS to judge the potential of the candidate are education, skill, language abilities, working experience, ties with Canada, an invitation for the job and many similar factors. One can easily increase his/her scores under the CRS simply by improving the language abilities and getting an invitation from the Canadian employer etc.
The Canadian employer, territories, and provinces can also recruit immigrants from the Express Entry Pool which gives the major boost to the candidate profile by increasing the points with a major difference.
How to Become a Permanent Resident of Canada?
The whole process of becoming a permanent resident of Canada is online. One who wants to become a permanent resident of Canada needed to create and complete a profile on Citizenship and Immigration Canada website. The whole process time of the whole process for the eligible candidates is six months or less. The time also depends on the nationality of the candidate, score pool while other political and economic factors also count.
Once the profile has been created by the candidate, the profile has been put into a pool which has been depending on the basis of their scores. Later, the Canadian employers and provincial nominee program can choose the potential candidate on the basis of their education and work experience. The chosen candidate has been awarded additional 600 CRS points or 200 points for qualifying for the job offer.
Once the scores have been finalized, the candidate has been invited to apply for the Canadian residency.
The candidate must need to fulfil the all the Express Entry criteria. If one does not meet the criteria, he/she will not be accepted into the system. The fee for disqualified candidates is not refundable. So only apply to create a profile once you completely satisfied the eligibility criteria of Canadian Express Entry.
How Do I Know A Provincial Nomination Within Express Entry?
You need to confirm a provincial nomination within the express entry to get the additional Canadian immigration points. This has been only done if a province or territory has nominated your profile under their Express Entry stream. To confirm this, you need to follow the following instruction:
Confirming a PNP nomination within express entry:
- Open your express entry profile
- Click on application details > nomination and selection
- It will ask whether you have Canada PNP Express Entry nomination or no. You need to change your answer to Yes
- Select the province or territory from the drop-down menu who has nominated you
- Submit your profile once you update this information
- Provide your Express Entry profile number and validation code to the province directly (outside the express entry)
- By using this information the province will confirm your PNP nomination and you will receive a message regarding this confirmation
- You need to accept this offer to get the instant 600 points for your express entry on CRS immigration score.
Note: you will have only 30 days to accept this otherwise it will automatically expire.
From your MyCIC account, you will receive the confirmation letter in PDF. The whole process is online. There is no traditional paper base process for this procedure exists and processes through the express entry.
Can I Accept Nomination From Multiple Provinces?
No, in Express Entry, a prospective immigrant can only accept the nomination from single provincial nominee program. You have received the PNP nomination from more than one province then you need to scarify your existing nomination and choose the different province. You need to make sure that you have chosen the option “not accept” for your first nomination. However if you a student visa in Canada you can take the route but long process.
Is Notification of Interest (NOI) count as Nomination?
The province nomination and notification of interest are two different things. You can receive one at a time. It is up to you to device your nomination.
