Part One: 10 Immigration Tips That Will Improve Your Application for Canadian Citizenship

family speaking about Canadian ImmigrationYou’ve gathered your family together at the dinner table for the “big talk,” you’ve taken into account all the amazing benefits Canada has to offer, but have you really taken the time to research what will get you there? We’ve gathered for you the most helpful tips for obtaining your Canadian Visa, permanent residence, and settling in Canada.

1. Register with a Private Immigration Office

It’s not quite “set it and forget it,” because you will need to provide the documents – but registering with an experienced private immigration office will remove from the equation a lot of headaches and hardships. You wouldn’t navigate the open sea without an experienced captain, right? We hope not!

For instance, are you familiar with document IMM 5644? or CIT 0007? How about IMM 5533?

Having someone by your side who is an expert in these documents and procedures can speed up your immigration process, protect you from a number of common mistakes, and greatly increase your chances of receiving a Canadian Visa.

But, possibly the most important reason for using a private immigration office…

To enjoy an easy, stress-free, immigration to Canada. A private immigration office will pair you with an Immigration Expert that will be with you to answer your questions and be available to you 24/7 until the day you land in Canada. That’s a huge relief.

Immigration to Canada should be an exciting and happy time for you and your family, why would you want to go through it without some really helpful tools? Private immigration offices provide you with these tools to succeed and you will thank us for mentioning it!

2. Make sure you have an RCIC reviewing your immigration profile. What Does R-C-I-C even stand for?

A Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant or RCIC is one of 4200 qualified individuals who are permitted by the Canadian government to represent you in your immigration process. RCIC’s are highly skilled and accomplished in getting people like you to Canada.

Long story short, the Canadian government will allow more than 300,000 immigrants to Canada this year and your RCIC will do their absolute best to make sure you and your family are part of that number.

Often, a private immigration office will have an RCIC verify your documents and should have them working for the organization.

Our advice to you: Ask the organization if they use RCICs before registering for the Canadian immigration process. Ask for the full name and the RCIC’s registration number. After doing this go straight to the RCIC official website and enter the information here.

Once you have found the RCIC is in fact registered with the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council, you should rest easy that you are in good hands.

3. Get professional assistance in finding a job

Often “job” and “Immigration to Canada” go hand in hand. More than 50% of our readers, alone, comment daily and ask questions relating to finding a job in Canada.

Finding a Job in Canada is not only important for you and your well-being, but also because finding a job while you are applying for Canadian Citizenship is a fantastic way to secure a temporary or even a Permanent Resident Visa.

We recommend finding professional services that will help you apply for a Job in Canada under all and any circumstances here’s why:

a. Professional staffing firms are FREE to use. The agencies only make money if you get the job and are paid by your deciding employer.

b. Some private immigration agencies have job assistance services included in your immigration packages.

c. Why not have someone helping you find a job? Two heads are better than one. You will appreciate someone helping you look for jobs while you try to manage your time between work and life.

d. You have nothing to lose!

Long story short using job assistance is a great strategy to secure a Canadian Visa, and enjoy a successful life in Canada. Since you may not yet be familiar with Canada, you should seek the assistance of someone who understands this field and has the connections you will need to find employment.

4. Have someone with experience look at your résumé and start asking for recommendation letters.

When you are gathering your documents to apply for your Canadian Visa, we urge you not to forget about the importance of your résumé and recommendation letters.

Firstly, the Canadian government wants to make sure you are an upstanding member of society, showing your work history and gathering great recommendations can give you more points towards your immigration profile.

Secondly, Canada is seeking talented workers for their new Global Skills Program.  You could be chosen for a 2-week priority visa reserved for talented individuals. So make sure your résumé and recommendation letters are:

a. Up to date with your most recent employment history – past to current.

b. Free from spelling and grammar mistakes

c. In the Canadian résumé format (see the list below)

canada immigration job resume

Without a doubt, your résumé and your recommendation letters are your best weapon in finding a job in Canada, so make sure you put a lot of focus and effort into this invaluable investment in yourself. You can always ask friends or family to edit your résumé or translate if the documents are in a language other than French or English.

If you took our first recommendation and found yourself the right private immigration office, then you can even ask the company for help with these documents. Again, taking a lot of the hard work out of your hands is one of the benefits of using these companies.

Never underestimate the power of an impressive résumé!

5. Stay up to date on Immigration Laws and Requirements

You don’t have to be a big shot lawyer, but you should be up to date on the current immigration policy.

This year alone (2017) has been a major year for immigration reform. The government has pledged to bring a minimum of 300,000 immigrants to Canada in 2017 and increase that number to a minimum of 340,000 annually by 2020.

To reach these goals the Canadian government has added some really exciting changes that will make it easier for you to move to Canada and become a Canadian citizen.

Here are a few changes this year that help you with your Visa Application:

  • Children under the age of 18 and adults over the age of 54 will not have to take language or knowledge exams for Canadian citizenship.
  • Canadian Employers MUST hire Foreign workers if the position is not filled by ready, qualified, and willing Canadian candidates.
  • Canadian resident must be present in Canada for a period of 3 years before being able to apply for Canadian citizenship (previously 6 years!)

can asylum seeker from UK apply and move to Canada ?

Reply

    Randy Travis (Blogger for ItsCanadaTime)

    Hi Hassan,

    There is no law in Canada that prohibits an asylum seeker permission to apply for Canadian immigration. You are still allowed to start the immigration process. Canada annually takes in roughly one out of every ten refugees through its refugee programs. In 2008 and 2009, Canada was “the second and third highest destination country for refugee claimants among the group of 44 industrialized countries.” You will have to go through a criminal, security, and medical screening.

Just want to know if I can still proceed my application to process. I have a fiancee living there at Edmonton, Alberta it’s been a long time and I wanted to be with her. I’ m an Electrical Engineer and I want to know if there any slot for me to work there. I’m tired of living here in Ireland because of high cost of living, primarily the house rentals and commodities with 41% of our salaries went to taxes.
I would like to ask a favour if you could help me with my situation and a possibility to be in Canada.

Kind Regards,

    Hi Alejandro,
    There are many great programs that can help you find a job in Canada. The two really effective ones at the moment are the Temporary Foreign Workers Program and the Global Skills Program. When you start your immigration process, you will be able to be entered into the job pool and look at the Canadian job board. I’m not really familiar with your profession, but if you are chosen for these programs you will be given a priority Canadian Visa.

    Hi Mohamed,

    To get a job and live in Canada, you will first need to start the immigration process. After you begin to enter all your documents and prepare yourself to be presented before the Canadian government, you will be given the chance to search for jobs on the Canadian job boards. There are also some really great programs where you can be entered into pools where you can be chosen to work. Make sure to research the Temporary Foreign Worker Program and the Global Skills Program.

    Like I said in the blog, you should follow my first tip. If you are confused on how to start, you may want to go with a private immigration firm that can guide you through all the steps. Having someone that can be with you through the process, may be your best chance to successfully finish all the steps to immigrate to Canada.

Reply

    Randy Travis (Blogger for ItsCanadaTime)

    Hi Cesar 🙂
    No need to feel desperate. Canada is aware of the issues facing many Americans at the moment, which is why they have increased the number of immigrants they will accept in 2018. There are tons of new programs that are aimed to help hard workers just like you find employment in Canada. One of these being the Temporary Foreign Workers Program. If you are feeling like now is the time to move to Canada, this program is a really great way to get to Canada quickly with a job waiting for you when you land. Good luck.

    Randy Travis (Blogger for ItsCanadaTime)

    Hi Carmen,
    People who are finding the Canadian immigration process difficult often find comfort in using a private immigration office. My first tip to you would be to start gathering your documents together (passports, bank statements, college transcripts/diploma) and also draft a newly updated work resume. Don’t forget to ask for references from your prior jobs, that speak praises about you. You will need them when you begin your immigration process.
