Every year, many people Immigrate to Canada from countries all over the world, Here we can guide you how to immigrate to Canada in 2022. Canada has a strong economy and welcomes immigrants with the skills and experience that will contribute to this society.
In this article, we are going to discuss four pathways to Canadian immigration: Express Entry, the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), Quebec immigration, and family sponsorship. There are actually more than 100 Canadian immigration programs to choose from.
Express Entry is Canada’s main immigration pathway. It is the application manager for three economic-class immigration programs: Federal Skilled Worker Program, Canadian Experience Class and Federal Skilled Trades Program. If you are eligible for one of these programs, you may also be able to apply for a Provincial Nominee Program that is aligned with Express Entry, although it is not necessary for all PNPs. Some PNPs are managed by the province’s own application system and they may be more suitable for some people who are not eligible for Express Entry.
Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)
The PNP can be an option for people who do not qualify for Express Entry, or for Express Entry candidates who want to get extra points.
Other than Nunavut and Quebec, every province and territory has a PNP. The provincial and territorial governments tailor these programs to suit their own economic and population growth strategies.
There are two categories of PNPs: enhanced PNPs, which use the Express Entry pool to draw candidates; and base PNPs which operate independently from Express Entry.
The primarily French-speaking province of Quebec has its own immigration program.
To immigrate to Quebec you need a Certificat de sélection du Québec (CSQ), which is administered by the Ministère de l’Immigration, de la Francisation et de l’Intégration (MIFI). You can get the CSQ by applying for one of Quebec’s immigration programs such as:
- Quebec’s Regular Skilled Worker Program for French-speaking foreign workers in skilled occupations.
- Quebec Experience Program is popular among French-speaking international student graduates from Quebec institutions as well as skilled workers.
- Quebec Permanent Immigration Pilot Programs for food processing workers, orderlies, and tech workers in certain occupations.
If you have family in Canada, you may be eligible for family sponsorship. Canadians can sponsor their spouses and common-law partners, their dependent children or adult relatives, as well as their parents and grandparents. In some cases, Canadians may be eligible to sponsor other family members.
