Shades of Light on The Canadian Immigration Process

Canadian immigration has become highly popular in the last few years due to the high human development index of this Canada.

The Canadian government has also streamlined the process of immigration to Canada. It has introduced the Express Entry system under which the candidates are eligible as per the point structure of the comprehensive ranking system (CRS). Under this system, almost 1,200 points are available to the candidates. 600 of these points are awarded if the candidate has a job offer or a nomination from a province in Canada (PNP which stands for Provincial Nominee Program). Out of the rest 600, 500 points are awarded for the human capital factors of a candidate and/or his spouse which collectively imply their individual ages, language proficiencies, levels of education and Canadian work experience if present. The rest 100 out of 600 are available to those candidates who have the right skill transferability combinations of the human capital factors mentioned above, for example, a good language proficiency combined with a work experience in the native country or Canadian work experience plus work experience in the native country.

It’s important for a candidate to get his educational levels assessed. This is highly crucial for candidates who have obtained their education outside of Canada.

It’s also important for candidates who are on the verge of completing their degrees that they do so before getting their educational credentials assessment (ECA). ECA is important for candidates who have received their education outside of Canada. It helps the Canadian government to know the worth of education received outside of Canada. It’s important to get each and every post-secondary degree assessed to get the highest number of points available. The candidates can also score extra points if they are able to get a certificate of recognition from a province for a certain trade qualification. The candidates who have the maximum points available under this points structure can look forward to immigration to Canada.

One way to increase the CRS score is to enhance the score for language proficiency (English or French). It can be by getting a higher score in the designated English language exams which include CELPIP (Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program) and IELTS etc.

The educational credential assessment is not mandatory for candidates who are applying for the Express Entry under the Canadian Experience class. But they can still increase their points by applying for the same. Such candidates can get an extra 200 points, there can be 150 points awarded for ECA and an extra 50 for the experience held under the Canadian Experience class. With an assessment of the bachelor’s degree, a candidate can earn an extra of almost 170 extra points. So, make sure that by following all these conditions you are able to score the maximum points and able to attain immigration to Canada.
