Canada Visa (Canadian Permanent Residents Visa)

>> Saturday, October 17, 2009

Free Education for your children
Free Health Care for the entire family
Disability Income
more than substantial Retirement Income
Unemployment Income

Are some the reasons why a lot of Filipino's long to have a Canada Visa (Canadian Permanent Residents Visa).


Even though the application process is not easy.

That even though it is a lot of hard work to start a new life in Canada and it is a lot of hard work to relocate in Canada; a lot of Single and Married individuals still apply for this Visa.

And why wouldn't they?

Education, health care, Disability, Unemployment and no real retirement income are some of the major Financial set backs that they experience or fear that they might experience which will keep them from achieving Financial Security for themselves and for their loved ones.

Last November 28, 2008, the Immigration Minister of Canada published changes in the Federal Skilled Worker (FSW) Immigration application Program.

Among the highlighted changes was a Fast and Easier way to Immigrate in Canada.

Applicants with Work experience in 38 High Demand Occupations will be processed within 6 months to a year.

Since then our Consultancy Company Canadian, Immigration Consultancy, has processed numerous applications.

This blog post aims to share with you some of the profiles of our successful applicants who received their Canada Visa's (Canadian Permanent Residents Visa) last September 2009 which are as follows:

General Practitioners and Family Physicians
University Professors
Financial Auditors and Accountants
College and Other Vocational Instructors
Specialist Physicians
Registered Nurses
Restaurant and Food Service Managers

These applicants were very surprised at the processing speed, before they knew it, they were already granted their Visa's.

The speed of an application will also depend on the applicants speed in sending in requirements when it is required in different stages of the application.

Amongst the applicants who got their Visa's last Month, the longest time it took before the Visa was given was 10 months the fastest was 7 months. On the average, it takes around 8 months.

Which means that the faster you start your application, the faster you will get the results in your application.

A lot of applicants often ask me whether or not they are eligible to apply under the Federal Skilled Worker Program, because their job titles might differ from those listed in the announced 38 qualifying occupations.

And I tell them that from our experience the Visa officer will grant an applicant the Canada Visa even if their titles are different for as long as they have the duties that matches the occupations in the 38 high demand list.

This is due to the fact that Job titles for a particular occupation can vary across different countries, different industries and even different employers, the duties performed in the occupation are more important than the job title when it comes to determining eligibility.

I would like to give you an example:

College and other Vocational Instructors— The National Occupation Classification of Canada defines College and Other Vocational Instructors as instructors who teach academic, vocational, technical and applied art subjects both in colleges and at the college level. Their everyday duties include teaching students using a systematic plan of lectures, demonstrations, discussion groups, laboratory work, shop sessions, seminars, case studies, field assignments and independent or group projects. In addition, College and other Vocational Instructors develop curricula and courses, prepare, administer and mark student tests and papers, advise students on program curricula and career decisions, and provide individualized tutorial/remedial instructions, among other duties.

Although it may seem that this occupation seems to describe a limited group of instructors at non-university post-secondary institutions, other occupations may also fit the profile.

For example, an instructor that teaches English as a second language to adults may qualify under this occupation. In addition, an instructor who teaches students how to drive commercial vehicles may also qualify. Other potential applicants that may be considered under this occupation are company trainers and community-based trainers.

It is very important for all potential immigrants to compare their job descriptions and duties to those of the 38 qualifying occupations—they might discover they qualify for the Federal Skilled Worker program even if their job titles is different from the actual Job Titles that the Citizenship and Immigration Canada used.

So if you are interested to apply, the first thing that you have to do is review the list of 38 high demand occupations and read the individual duties and responsibilities, who knows you may get a Canada Visa (Canadian Permanent Residents Visa).

Foreign Credentials Referral Office (FCRO)

>> Friday, October 9, 2009


The Foreign Credentials Referral Office (FCRO) is part of Citizenship and Immigration Canada which was created to help foreign-trained workers succeed in Canada.

For the purpose of helping foreign-trained workers succeed in Canada, the FCRO provides information, path-finding and referral services so the the integration of this workers will not be difficult.

Remember that the approval of your permanent resident visa application and eventual entry in Canada does not guarantee you employment in your preferred profession or any other profession.

If you are planning to live and work in Canada, gathering information about living and working in Canada will help you prepare for employment in your chosen profession. The Foreign Credential Referral Office created a workbook specifically for this purpose.

Planning to work in Canada? An essential workbook for newcomers was created by FCRO for internationally trained individuals who are considering moving to Canada. It will help you learn how to put your skills, education and experience to work. The workbook is composed of 5 sections:

1. Living in Canada

The more you learn about Canada, the faster you will be able to adapt to the Canadian work environment. Taking the time to ask questions, to read and research, to watch videos on the Web or elsewhere, can all greatly help your transition from new immigrant to an established and comfortable member of Canadian society. This section is designed to help you learn more about life in Canada, and to guide you in taking a few essential steps as an immigrant.

2. Canada's Official Languages

Language skills are extremely important to your professional future in Canada. This section will help you learn more about Canada’s two official languages – English and French – as well as assess your language skills and identify opportunities for language training.

3. Finding a job in Canada

This section is designed to help you understand all you need to do to obtain work in Canada. It provides you with a series of essential steps that will help you learn how to find and get a job in your preferred profession. This process will take time, but completing each task below as thoroughly as possible will give you and your family members the best possible chance to succeed professionally in Canada.

4. Work Related Documents

This section of the workbook is designed to help you identify and locate documents that may be of importance to you in Canada before you come to Canada. It will also help you to assess the value, in Canada, of documents in your chosen field.

5. Education Academic Credentials

Education is an asset when searching for work in Canada, but your education may not automatically be recognized in Canada. Demonstrating your education and academic credentials is, therefore, important. Understanding educational equivalencies between your country of origin and Canada will also help you to understand the kinds of jobs you will be likely to obtain in Canada.

For more information about Foreign Credentials Referral Office, visit the official website at http://www.credentials.gc.ca.

For individuals who are working in regulated professions(Occupations that needs a license to be able to practice). You can have your credentials assessed even before you leave Canada, so that you may determine if your credentials is already sufficient to allow you to take the licensure examination in Canada.

The assessment may cost you money.

Typhoon Ondoy Victims of the Philippines get special Immigration consideration

>> Saturday, October 3, 2009

Aside from the $5 million humanitarian assistance pledged for the victims of typhoon Ondoy, the Government of Canada also announced special immigration measures for typhoon victims in the Philippines.


Government of Canada announces special immigration measures for typhoon victims in the Philippines

Ottawa, October 1, 2009 — Residents in the Philippines who are significantly affected by Typhoon Ketsana are being offered special measures to facilitate immigration to Canada, announced Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism Minister Jason Kenney.

“I would like to express my deepest sympathy and support for the people of the Philippines affected by this terrible disaster,” said Minister Kenney. “This government is moving quickly to reunite Canadians and permanent residents with their families by extending a welcome to those who wish to come to Canada.”

Effective immediately, Citizenship and Immigration Canada’s (CIC) visa office in the Philippines is responding on a priority basis for those directly affected by the disaster.
This will be applied to new and existing applications from Canadian citizens, permanent residents and protected persons who have close family members in the Philippines. They must, however, identify themselves as being directly and significantly affected by the current situation and notify CIC [source].


This New Immigration measure only applies to Family Sponsorship Class only and not with Federal Skilled Workers (FSW) application.

For Permanent Residents and Canadian Citizens with existing sponsorship application you must notify the the CIC Call Centre at 1-888-242-2100 (in Canada only) to identify your existing applications, if the family that you have sponsored has been adversely affected by the typhoon.

For those who are about to submit your sponsorship applications, you should have “Philippines” prominently written on the mailing envelope of your application package.
