Candidats Immigration Canada

Skilled workers, also known as independent immigrants, are people who can become permanent residents because they are able to contribute to and integrate into the socio-economic life of Quebec and Canada. With respect to the Skilled Worker immigration category, it is important to note that there are dual selection regulations, i.e. skilled workers intending to settle in the province of Quebec are selected according to criteria that differ from those who wish to settle elsewhere in English-speaking Canada. Our experienced team will conduct a dual evaluation of your profile in order to determine your province of destination and thus maximize your chances of success.

As of June 2009, the Federal Skilled Worker category is limited to those who

  1. Have 1 year of full-time (continuous) work experience in an occupation on the Occupational List; or
  2. Have a valid Arranged Employment Offer from a Canadian employer

In addition to the above requirements, an application will be evaluated by taking into consideration the following factors:

  1. Level of education;
  2. Language skills in English and French;
  3. Work experience;
  4. Age;
  5. If you are married or in a common-law relationship, your spouse's/spouse's education;
  6. If you have previously worked or studied in Canada;
  7. Close relatives in Canada.

It should be noted that the Canadian federal government has set a cap of one million (1,000,000) immigrants by 2020 (2018 to 2020) on the number of applications that can be processed under the eligible occupation category. This cap does not apply to applicants applying under the valid Arranged Employment Program.

Important note: All applicants for immigration as skilled workers will have to pass medical, security and criminality checks before being granted permanent resident status.

THE EXPRESS INBOUND PROCESS

The Express Entry system is a system developed by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to properly select candidates who apply for permanent residence in Canada under the following immigration programs:

- The Federal Skilled Worker Class (formerly the Federal Skilled Worker Program)

- The Federal Skilled Trades Class

- The Canadian Experience Class

- A portion of the Provincial Nominee Programs.

DETERMINE IF YOU ARE ELIGIBLE

Applicants eligible to immigrate to Canada under one of the federal government's economic immigration programs may enter the Express Entry pool. Therefore, the first step is to determine your eligibility for one of these programs. By completing the Multinational Immigration Canada assessment form, you will be able to determine if you meet the regulatory requirements for immigration under the Express Entry program. Our team will evaluate your application and provide you with a response regarding your eligibility.

The Canadian Experience Class (CEC) is open to those who are, either

  1. A temporary foreign worker with at least 2 years of full-time Canadian work experience in a Level 0, A or B job;
  2. An international graduate from a Canadian post-secondary institution with at least 1 year of full-time Canadian work experience in a Level 0, A or B job.

The CEC program is only open to those who wish to live in a province or territory other than Quebec. An application must be submitted either when the applicant is in Canada as a foreign worker or within one year of leaving employment in Canada. Important note: All applicants for immigration as skilled workers will have to pass medical, security and criminality checks before being granted permanent resident status.

Any permanent resident or Canadian citizen has the right to submit a sponsorship application for a relative living abroad. This process allows sponsored persons to obtain permanent resident status subject to certain conditions. The sponsorship process, also known as family reunification, may include the following family members:

  1. Spouse, common-law partner, conjugal partner;
  2. Dependent children;
  3. Parents;
  4. Grandparents;
  5. Brothers and sisters, nephews and nieces, grandsons / granddaughters, who are orphans, 18 years old and not married or in a common-law relationship;
  6. Another relative of any age, provided that none of the above family members could be sponsored, and the sponsor has no other relatives who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents.
In order for a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada to sponsor a family member, other than their spouse or common-law partner, and/or dependent children, he or she must meet certain income requirements. A sponsor will not be able to sponsor a family member if that family member (the sponsor) is on government financial assistance (other than for medical or disability reasons). Also ineligible are sponsors who have declared bankruptcy and have not yet been discharged, sponsors who have failed to provide support in response to a court order, sponsors who are convicted of certain crimes, including those who have committed serious crimes.

Important Note: All applicants for immigration as Sponsored Persons will be required to pass medical, security and criminality checks before being granted permanent resident status.
