The Occupational reason behind Canada Immigration

The reason behind immigration to Canada by most of the candidates is better work opportunities with high paying salaries. The demand for the job, skills and talents of the individual are intrinsically linked to each other. Thus a talented and skilled candidate need not worry much about finding a job in Canada as the candidate based on his experience and skills will be able to find a lucrative job offer soon enough.

Express Entry Program as a job Search Portal

For finding a job in Canada is one of the most pertinent portal that has come to rescue for many skilled candidates and that is the Express Entry Program. It is a pathway for immigration to Canada with the Permanent Residency(PR) status and it got introduced in the year 2015. Through this federal selection system many skilled candidates have migrated to Canada with the Permanent Residency(PR) status. The Express entry program evaluates the candidates on the point-based measurement system in which the candidates are assessed based on the Comprehensive Ranking System(CRS) points. The candidates who meet the cut off of the Comprehensive Ranking System(CRS) points as decided by the IRCC and announced in the Express Entry draws are considered fit to apply for the Permanent Residency(PR) status and are sent the ITAs (Invitation to Apply).

The factors that affect the points calculation of the candidate are –

• Age – There is no upper age limit for qualification for Express Entry program but candidates with age limit 18- 35 years are given the maximum points

• Education – The education of the candidates all the degrees, certificates, diploma needs to evaluated as per the Canadian education board and points are allotted for the same. Higher education means higher points for the candidate.

• Work experiences – Canada government asks for at least one year of full time permanent and continuous job experience and those candidates who have good work experience are allotted higher points

• Language proficiency - There are two official languages of Canada – English and French and the ability in at least one of the language needs to be established by the candidate by taking the test and higher points will be allotted for high score in the language proficiency test.

• Adaptability – The candidates who have a sibling or spouse staying in Canada will be allotted an extra 10 points

• Arranged Employment – having a job offer from an employer in Canada will help the candidate get extra 10 points. But, for immigration to Canada it is not mandatory to have a job offer from a Canadian employer and the candidate can migrate without a job offer as well.
