This program is a fast track option towards permanent residence in Canada; it gives the provinces of Canada the authorization to nominate applicants who are interested in immigrating to Canada and especially to a province of their choosing. But only wanting to settle in a particular province doesn’t cut it, the applicants must have the skills, work experience, relevant education levels, and a job offer so that they may contribute to the province’s economy.
A. If this program speaks to you, bear in mind the following:
- First, the applicant must be nominated by a Canadian province.
- The applicant is to apply to CIC, to become a permanent resident.
- Each province has its own guidelines for nomination and they can change without prior notice.
If you were nominated by a province prior to beginning the procedure with us: fill out our application form and one of our representatives will contact you.
B. Determining your eligibility and qualifying
The first thing to be done is to determine your level of skilled job, since if it falls under the low or semi-skilled jobs (NOC C or D) you will be required to take a language exam which will showcase your abilities in speaking, listening, writing and reading in English or French.
C. The application comes in two steps:
As stated before, the criteria of the application may change at any given moment, so be sure to visit the province’s main website to keep updated.
You must apply to the province of your choice and mind that your application will be based on:
* The province’s immigration needs.
* Your connection to said province.
After being nominated you will have to apply to CIC for a permanent residence status. At this stage, you will be required to pass a Canadian government issued medical examination and submit paperwork that approves you don’t have a criminal record. These checks are required for all immigrants, regardless of program.
