More US and UK citizens to immigrate Canada

The amount of people from the United Kingdom and the United States who immigrate to Canada every year has been increasing over the last few years. Canada has plenty to offer foreign nationals from all over the world, including jobsImmigrate to Canada Skilled Worker Program

In fact, new changes to Canadian immigration programs may result in even more United States and UK citizens immigrating to Canada – like the changes made recently to the Federal Skilled Worker Program.

Language Proficiency huge advantage for UK and US citizens

The Federal Skilled Worker Program is one immigration program that UK and US citizens will have an advantage for. Applicants for this program receive “points” for different qualifying criteria, including their age, work experience, education level and more. They need 67 points of 100 points to pass and be eligible for the program.

One of these qualifying criteria is language ability in English or French – which UK and US citizens have plenty of. Previously, language ability was ranked as just one important qualifying criteria, but the changes to the program by the federal government means that language is the most important component on the points measurement, and that it’s now is worth more points – 28 points to be exact, requiring less emphasis in the other categories.

Are you a United States citizen or a United Kingdom citizen and you want to immigrate to Canada?

This gives applicants to the Skilled Worker Program from English-speaking countries like the UK and US a great boost on their application. If you are a foreign national from the UK or US and want to work in Canada under the Skilled Worker Program, please contact us! Our immigration law firm can help you.

I had an excellent experience working with Visa Place, communicating with them was very easy. I initially tried to navigate my immigration issue personally, but it was much more efficient allowing everything to be handled by the experts. Thank you so much Sarah, Lauren, Natasha, and Sukhi for all of your help!
