Looking to Immigrate from India to Canada? We Have the Experience You Need!

 

Many educated and ambitious people who live in India choose to immigrate to Canada. In 2010, more than 30,000 people emigrated from India to Canada.

Canada is a stable and prosperous society that offers a good education system, an excellent health care system with universal coverage, and economic opportunities to newcomers and long-time residents alike.

During the economic and financial crisis that rocked the world in 2008, Canada remained one of the few bright spots with a slight recession and no bank failures. It is a country of vast opportunity and potential happiness.

Many Indian Immigrants Move To Toronto and Vancouver

In the past, new immigrants from India tended to settle in the cities of Toronto and Vancouver, but today many provinces are actively encouraging new immigrants to settle in other communities. Vancouver and Toronto remain very prominent as the top choices for those who wish to emigrate from India to Canada, in part due to the business opportunities for skilled professionals.

There is a very large and dynamic group of Indian immigrants living in the Toronto area, which even has a neighborhood referred to as “little India”.

Canadian Immigration Rules Are Complex and Subject To Change

The Canadian government actively encourages immigration from other countries but the rules that cover immigration are very complex and may change from time to time. There are specific categories under which immigrants can apply and, depending on the category, Canada applies a points system when deciding whether or not a person from another country can qualify to move to Canada.

Points awarded if a person has education or training in a field where Canada requires workers. Points are also awarded to Indian immigrants who are investors with substantial sums of money to create a business in Canada, or entrepreneurs or self-employed business people. A person who does not qualify under one of the immigration options may still qualify under another.

An Immigration Lawyer Can Be Helpful

The process of applying to immigrate to Canada can be very long and challenging. Hiring a qualified immigration law firm in Toronto who can connect an Indian immigrant with someone who speaks one of the languages of India can help an Indian applicant better understand the requirements and provide the proper documentation.

If you are applying for the first time, you will need someone who can help you prepare the application properly. Or, if your application to immigrate to Canada is denied, you will need to have someone who is very knowledgeable about immigration law and about the specific details of your application in order to file an appeal on your behalf.

    Hi,

    I am in Canada on a work permit for over a year now. When I had applied for a work permit, I was recently married and did not have a marriage certificate issued in India (It was only religious ceremony performed). However, I had declared my status as married, but as my spouse did not intend to accompany me, I wasn’t required to submit any proof of marriage. Unfortunately, our relations suffered a setback and we decided to separate and we did not bother to register for marriage thereafter. Now, I am in a difficult situation while applying for PR as Canadian Experienced class as to what my marital status should be. It won’t be possible for me to produce any proof of either marriage or divorce. I hope, you can help me out. Please advise

    I am a permanent resident and I have sponsored PR for my wife in May 2016 and its in processing.
    Meanwhile,the 6 months of visitor visa stay for my wife is going to be over by March 10th 2017.

    I want an advise where will it be better to go out of Canada to Caribbean for 5 days and then come back in March to extend her stay or should I apply for her visitor visa extension ?

      Hello Nimya. In order to get a post graduate work visa, your program must be a minimum of 2 years. When you receive your PGWP. your husband wil obtain an open work visa. Your son would need a visitor visa.
