Canada extends multi-year immigration targets into 2021 with focus on Express Entry & Provincial Nomination Programs

The Government has set out a multi-year immigration levels plan that commits to welcoming more permanent residents to Canada over the next three years. In 2018, the Department expects to welcome between 290,000 and 330,000 new permanent residents (with a target of 310,000), which is the highest level in recent history. Moreover, this plan includes raising immigration levels to between 300,000 and 350,000 in 2019 (targeting 330,000), and between 310,000 and 360,000 in 2020 (targeting 340,000).

Immigrant Stories – Sharmarke Dubow

Immigrant Stories British Columbia

Meet Sharmarke Dubow in our #ImmigrantStories series, aimed at informing and inspiring immigrants to arrive, settle and succeed in Canada.

Sharmarke was eight years old when his mother put him and his sister on a boat fleeing strife in Somalia. They crossed the Indian Ocean by moonlight and landed at Mombasa, Kenya, where he lived in a tent and camp for five years with hundreds of others. Now he’s the city councilor in British Columbia, Canada.

“When I became a Canadian citizen, I felt I have a home, I have rights and responsibilities, It was all about me having a second chance at life, belonging to a country and being a proud Canadian. Canada gave me a safe home after 20 years of being homeless. We have a system that works, that will protect my rights regardless of my sexuality, my race, my background, and I am able to sleep and not worry about bullets coming through my wall.”

Job Vacancies Increase in every Canadian province, led by Quebec, Ontario & British Columbia

Canadian businesses are having a historically hard time finding employees, and the good news for workers is that pay is likely headed up.

Canada had over 397,400 jobs sitting unfilled for four months or longer during 2018. The vast majority of those jobs — more than 326,000, or 82 per cent — were located in Ontario, Quebec and British Columbia. (The three provinces have about 76 per cent of Canada’s population.)

Statistics Canada says job vacancies in B.C. increased in 19 of 20 industrial sectors in the province, with vacancies concentrated in the province’s Lower Mainland-Southwest economic region, which includes Vancouver. Sales and service occupations, trades and equipment operators posted the largest increase in vacancies.

The Statistics Canada report showed job vacancies have increased year-on-year in each of the last eight quarters.

British Columbia, Ontario Immigration Job Vacancy

In the third and fourth quarter, the number of job vacancies was up in 7 of the 10 broad occupational categories on a year-over-year basis, led by trades, transport and equipment operators, and sales and service occupations. These occupational groups were also the two largest broad occupational categories in terms of vacancies. Over the same period, job vacancies in management occupations declined while they were little changed in business, finance and administration occupations and occupations in art, culture, recreation and sport.

History of Canadian Immigration

Canada has a colourful immigration history starting from the very first settlers from France and England. The country has been shaped by the contributions of many men and women who have traveled across the miles to settle in Canada, making it known as a “land of immigrants”. The history of immigration to Canada extends back thousands of years. With various possible models of migration to the New World to modern-day Canada, the Inuit are believed to have arrived entirely separately from other indigenous peoples around 1200 CE. Indigenous peoples contributed significantly to the culture and economy of the early European colonies and as such have played an important role in fostering a unique Canadian cultural identity

Immigrant Stories – Spotlight

Meet Indian-born Nazreena Anwar-Travas, in our #ImmigrantStories series, aimed at informing and inspiring immigrants to arrive, settle and succeed in Canada.

“Four-and-a-half years after arriving, as I took my oath of citizenship, I realized how quickly time had flown. From a nervous nail-biting immigrant, I had grown to be the person whom I was. From the very first job, to the first Tim Hortons coffee to the first snowfall … yes, everything had played an important role in shaping me as a person. My mind goes to one of my favorite quotations: “For everything you have missed; you have gained something else, and for everything you gain; you lose something else. It is about your outlook toward life; you can either regret or rejoice.

I choose to rejoice — because, somewhere in these six years in Canada, I have actually found my way home!

1- Federal Skilled Worker

Federal Skilled Worker (FSW) is an economic immigration program that uses the Express Entry online system to manage Canadian permanent residency applications, which means that the application for this program will be completely online and the resolution of your case will arrive as fast as possible. Canada government created the Express Entry system to facilitate all the immigration application they receive.

You can apply for the FSW under two circumstances: work experience or education. If you want to apply through your work experience, you must follow these requirements:

  • Have at least one year of continuous experience within the last 10 years, full-time or equal amount of part-time work. It must be paid work. Volunteer work or unpaid internships are invalid.
  • It must be under skill type 0, A or B in the National Occupational Classification (NOC) 2011 list, Canada.
  • You must carry and show the duties listed in the NOC category under which you are applying for and must meet the qualifying criteria for that particular NOC group.

To be eligible for FSW program with your education experience, you must have completed a Canadian secondary (high school) or post-secondary certificate, diploma or degree or a completed foreign credential with an educational credential assessment (ECA) report from an agency approved by CIC. This report should show that the foreign credential is equal to a Canadian credential.

2- Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP)

Canadian employers who want to hire foreign workers to fill temporary labor and skill shortages can hire through the Temporary Foreign Worker Program. As an employer, you will need a positive Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) from Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) before you can hire the foreign worker. An LMIA verifies that the job offered to a foreign national could not be filled by a Canadian worker and the foreign worker is needed to do the job.

The employer, if applying to hire a foreign worker through the TFWP program, needs to pay a fee and it is subject to approval. After a positive LMIA is granted, the employer has to submit the document to the foreign worker, who can apply for a work permit to IRCC on the basis of that LMIA.

3- Family Sponsorship

It’s possible to start your parent’s immigration to Canada right away! If you are a Canadian Citizen, a Permanent Resident of Canada, a person registered in Canada as an Indian under the Indian Act and have at least 18 years old, you can sponsor your spouse, partner, dependent children, parents, and grandparents to become permanent residents of Canada.
