Interested in Migrating from England to Canada?

Migrating from England to Canada is an exciting opportunity for people from the UK. Canada offers a diverse culture and a wide expanse of wilderness that is simply not available in the UK. However, before an English citizen can settle in Canada, they have to jump through a few immigration hoops.

The Commonwealth

England and Canada are both part of the Commonwealth, which means that it is relatively easy to move between these two countries. English people can usually travel to Canada without facing many restrictions, and they can even study there easily.

In spite of that close relationship, however, the immigration process can still be difficult for English citizens who want to stay in Canada indefinitely.

The International Work Program

Under the International Work Program, young English citizens can get the chance to live and work in Canada for up to one year. These citizens must be between the ages of 18 and 30, and they may have to meet certain requirements.

If an individual is outside of this age range or if an individual wishes to stay for longer than a year, they may have to apply for a visa under a different program.

Finding the Right Visa

Canada has a number of different visas that they offer to English citizens, depending on whether the person is moving from England to Canada for work, or for other reasons. Some visas are specifically for business owners. Other visas are for clergy members, volunteers, highly skilled workers, or workers that fall into various other categories. Still other visas are for people who already have a relative in Canada.

The first part of the application process is determining which visa is right for your immigration needs. If you apply for the wrong visa and you are denied, you may be able to re-apply for a different visa. However, it is often harder to get a re-application approved, and you will not get a refund for the first application. For this reason and many others, it is important to have a skilled attorney guide you through this process.

An immigration lawyer will be able to help you determine which visa is right for you, and they will be able to help you to gather your supporting documentation.

Extenuating Circumstances

There are certain circumstances that may make it harder for someone to emigrate to Canada from England. English people who have a criminal conviction on their record may have trouble being approved. Depending upon the nature of their crime, however, they will not be barred from entry. Applicants who cannot prove financial stability may also face trouble getting their application approved.

If you are an English citizen who wants to move to Canada, you should not be worried about the immigration process. There are skilled attorneys who can ensure that you have everything that you need to get approved. These lawyers will help to improve your chances of getting the visa that you need to emigrate from England to Canada.

I could not have asked for more! The VisaPlace team are extremely professional, they know their stuff. They gave me great information, prepared my work visa application and then prepared me for the submission process. I was successful. Got my visa. 5 stars! I would give them 6 if I could.

This is not an exaggeration!!! I was truly impressed with the way VisaPlace consultants handled my case. The consultants- Emily, Lauren, Takunda and Lisa, took their time to explain to me in great deal how they were going to approach my case and how they would handle setbacks, if any. Their professionalism and knowledge of the law were superb. The minor setback that came up was quickly addressed by the team. The team constantly kept me updated on the progress/status of my application; they quickly responded to my questions/concerns. They had predicated my permanent residency to be processed within 6 -12, and Indeed it was processed and completed within 6 months. Based on my personal experience, Emily and Lauren's team are the best! They deserve 5 stars!!!!!!!!!!!

VisaPlace helped me sponsor my husband to become a Permanent Resident of Canada. They were extremely professional. Every step along the way was explained fully and expertly taken care of. The staff responded immediately to any questions and always handled our concerns fully, taking as much time as we needed to understand where we were at in the immigration process and what to expect next. I would recommend VisaPlace with no hesitation at all. I'm sure if we had tried to navigate the immigration process ourselves, it would have been much harder.
