Applying for Canadian immigration: Which way is right for you?
1. Canadian Experience Class. The Canadian Experience Class is a program that allows people to use the work experience they have gained as students or temporary workers as an advantage for permanent residency.
2. Provincial Nominee Programs. The territories and provinces in Canada can nominate individuals to come and live and work there, depending on their situation. Every Provincial Nominee Program is different.
3. Business Immigration. The new and extremely popular Start-Up visa joins other immigration streams for investors and entrepreneurs who are looking to obtain permanent residency.
4. Skilled Worker Program. Using a points system, applicants for the Skilled Worker Program are assessed based on their ability to adapt to the Canadian work force. Language abilities, age, work experience, adaptability and education are all things that will be considered.
5. Family Class Immigration. Family reunification is an important goal of Canada’s immigration system, and spouses or family members have the opportunity to sponsor their own spouses or family members to come to Canada.
