changes in the Provincial Nomination Programs and Federal Skilled Workers Program may happen soon

>> Sunday, February 12, 2012

Last January 26, 2012, Jason Kenney, Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism,announced the results of their evaluation of the Provincial Nominee Program of Canada.

In the press conference he has cited the Provincial Nominee Program as the second biggest source of Immigrants from all over the world next to the Federal Skilled Workers Program.

Moreover, improvements on the Provincial Nominee program will be on its way.

In one of the highlight of the speech, he has noted and I quote,

"So one of the things I want to work on with the provinces is how we can maximize the value of the PN selection process, get businesses more involved in the process, in recruiting people proactively from overseas with businesses so they already have jobs lined up when they get there. I should also say that will be an important part of the reforms that we will be making to the federal skilled worker points system later this year, as intimated by the Prime Minister today in Davos."source


If you can recall in previous post, a proposal in changing the selection criteria or Points System of Canada in its Federal Skilled Workers program was published in the last publications.

In it, a change in the selection of skilled workers (ex. Welder's, Plumbers, Electricians, etc) were noted. A more fairer way to gauge their proficiency in English and putting value in their work experience were mentioned.

Changes in the Permanent Residents Visa programs in Canada can not be avoided, as Canada would constantly adjust it to meet the standards the they need to meet the demands of their economy, that is why I would recommend that individuals interested to immigrate, not to delay their decisions in applying.

The only way for you to take advantage of a certain program is when you are still qualified.

In my previous post Get ready to Immigrate to Canada - Goodnews might be on its way for you, I have mentioned, that applicants who are serious about their plans to immigrate to Canada MUST! Be ready at all times, so that they can take advantage of an opportunity once it is presented to them.

To do this they must have their documents in order at all times, because the current opportunities for Canada are only for those who are serious about their plans, that they prepare for it ahead of time.

Be Ready at all times, give us a call and we will tell you how you can do this.

Opportunities come and they go, if you miss your chance it may never present itself again. Do not regret knowing you had the option to Canada, but you did not do anything about it to grab the opportunity of a lifetime.

Visiting Canada - Tourist Visa application for Canada

>> Thursday, February 2, 2012

Notice:

A new option for Parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens and permanent residents to Visit Canada was published last December 1, 2011, to find out if your parents of grandparents qualify, please click on the following link:

Parents and Grand Parents Super Visa Canada

If you want to Visit Canada either as a tourist, student or temporary worker you would apply to get a Temporary Residents Canada Visa.

As a Filipino, you most of the requirements that you will need in the Application will be contained in this link, Visit Canada options.


If you simply just want to Visit Canada you can either apply for:

Single-entry visa allows one entry only to Canada within the validity of the visa.

Multiple-entry visa allows unlimited entries to Canada within the validity of the visa.

Transit visa allows for a short stop-over (maximum 48 hours) entry to Canada en route to another country. It can be granted for a single or multiple entries, depending on the applicant’s travel requirements. Example: If your return travel is also through Canada, you should request a transit visa valid for two entries.

You may also want to consider the following tips on tourist visa application based on our experience:

1. What is the Purpose of your visit? The most crucial consideration in application. Why are you visiting Canada? Depending on your purpose, you may be required to submit a letter of invitation from a relative or friend in Canada, the purpose of said invitation to visit Canada should be well defined and must be believable.

2. Do you have Strong Ties to the Philippines? A big factor in the assessment of your application by a Visa Officer whether to issue you a visa or not. You have to prove that you will not overstay in Canada beyond your Visa validity. That you will return the Philippines after the period given. Considering the present situation in the Philippines and the opportunities in Canada, the Visa Officer will naturally doubt if an applicant really just wants to Visit Canada or seek for opportunities and not go back to their home country. If you're unemployed, within the working age bracket, and your purpose in visiting Canada is for instance to have a vacation, that sends a very bad signal.

3. Supporting documents. The Canada Visa Officer will review and make a decision on your application based on the documents you submit. It is important to submit sufficient verifiable documents.

The documents to be provided by the person inviting you to visit Canada varies depending on the purpose of your visit. For you to establish strong ties to the Philippines, proof of assets, employment, business, etc. is needed.

You may file your application direct to Canadian Embassy. Just follow the instructions in the application kit and submit the appropriate documents.

Get ready to Immigrate to Canada - Goodnews might be on its way for you.

Anybody who wants to have a bright future has to make plans. They plan how they are going to get ahead in life. They take charge of their life. They use the resources available to them to their advantage to get ahead in life.

In immigrating to an advanced country like Canada, skilled, educated and experienced individuals and families get ahead in life faster. If you want to immigrate to Canada, because you also want to get ahead in life you can make it happen. But you have to plan ahead.

This coming July 1, 2012, there might be good news for those individuals who are planning to live and work in Canada. You can be one of those lucky individuals.

But are you ready?

Mr. Harper said he intends to tackle immigration reform, a thorny issue in a country where one in five is an immigrant. Canada’s humanitarian obligations and its family reunification objectives will be “respected,” he said, but the needs of the labour force and the economy will now be central.

Citizenship and Immigration Minister Jason Kenney has been working on significant reforms to the immigration system for several months. Mr. Kenney has said he wants to speed immigrant integration in the labour market by changing the emphasis of selection criteria. He intends to reward applicants who speak English or French, have job offers, Canadian work experience or postgraduate degrees, all of whom tend to fare better economically. The increased emphasis on economic immigrants could lead to reductions in the family class. [Source: The Globe and Mail]
What most people do not know is, Canada needs immigrants to keep their economy growing because it needs to offset its aging population and to replace workers retiring. This is good news for those planning to immigrate to Canada to get ahead in life.

Changes in Canada's Immigration Program
This coming July 1, 2012, a new Ministerial Instruction will be issued by Citizenship and Immigration Canada Minister. The new Ministerial Instruction will contain new regulations, policy and priorities under Canada's immigration program.

For the Federal Skilled Workers (FSW) program, a new list of priority occupations or eligible occupation listing for the program will be published. It can either be the same list of occupations as the current one or an entirely different one. The sentiment is, more openings will be coming soon for independent immigrants. There is also a great chance that the proposed changes to FSW points system will be implemented this coming July. Your occupation, education and work experience may be the next one needed in Canada and you have the chance to apply, but again the same question applies, ARE YOU READY to immigrate to Canada?

What is to be done?
If you are interested in immigrating to Canada or any advanced country, you must have all of your documents in order At All Times. More occupations will open in the future but they will also close quickly. You will be competing against millions of applicants around the world for immigrant visas to Canada. You must be in a position to file your application a minute after the door is opened. Always remember that Canada can turn the faucet on or turn the faucet off when it comes to immigration.

Now, do you really want to give your family a better quality of life by immigrating to Canada? Then let us help you get ready.

Like the thousands of Families that Canadian Immigration Consultancy has helped Immigrate to Canada, you too can be one of them. But you have to make this happen for your self, you have to want it bad enough to be honest with yourself and admitting the fact that to take advantage of this opportunity, you would have to make it happen for yourself by getting ready.

From our experience it would be the smallest investment you will make if you compare it to the return.

Get ready now, and be prepared to cash in on the opportunity of a lifetime or don't but do not regret that decision when the opportunity comes.
