What Are The Pathways To Get Pr In Canada From India?


Canadian Permanent Immigration Programs


The following categories are the after ways to immigrate to Canada as a permanent resident:

Express Entry Program:

The Express Entry is an online application management system that was launched in the year 2015 which governs all the federal streams that fall under the economic migration program. These programs include the Federal Skilled Worker, Canadian Experience Class, and Federal Skilled Trades.  The system helps people who wish to live and work in Canada, and who meet the minimum eligibility requirements may submit an expression of interest in applying for permanent residence by creating an online profile. Each profile that comes under the Express Entry is given a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score which is used further to rank the applicant. The higher the score the better are the chances for receiving an Invitation to Apply from Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

Canada Provincial Nominee Programs:

The Canadian government has provided its provinces the right to select economic immigrants and also send out the invitation to them to live permanently in Canada. Each province in Canada has its own levels of regulations and criteria of selection to choose the candidates who have to address the labour shortage needs and requirements of that particular province. Therefore these provincial immigration programs are popularly known as Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs).

Quebec Skilled Worker Program:

Also when compared to the other provinces of Canada it is said that Quebec holds a very high level of authority that helps in setting the rules for the immigration process. However, as of now, no Quebec immigration program is lined up with the Express Entry. The candidates must further choose to apply directly for the Quebec Skilled Worker Program, Quebec Business Immigration, and the Quebec Experience Class. 

Student Pathway:

The student pathway is one of the best choices for any applicant that is not eligible for any of the immigration pathways that are discussed above. The candidates that are interested may make a choice to study in Canada as the credentials they gain when they are studying there and also can further improve their chances of acquiring a Canada PR visa. Since many immigration programs give preference to the Canadian student experience, studying in Canada can be the best way to get the status of a Canadian permanent resident. 

Start-up Visa:

This type of visa is best suited for high net-worth entrepreneurs who want to start by setting up their new business in Canada. However, for this, they have to get all their business ideas that are sponsored by an authorized body in Canada and thus migrate permanently to the country.

Family Sponsorship

The other way that is best for the candidate is the family reunification to migrate to Canada permanently. If you are married to a person or have a child who is a Canadian citizen, they can sponsor the applicant to come to Canada. However, the only condition is that the sponsor should financially be strong enough to support the applicant in Canada. 

The most popular immigration options for those who wish to become Canadian permanent residents.

Federal Skilled Worker Class

Eligibility is dependent on having at least one year of skilled, paid work experience in the last 10 years, and other criteria.

Federal Skilled Trades Class

Eligible trade’s people with recent work experience can apply for residency under this program.
