One of the immigrant-friendly nations in the world, Canada invites up to 300,000 people to relocate to it each year.
There are various programs, using which nationals of the UAE can immigrate to Canada.
Here are some main ones.
Under the current Express Entry draw for migration to Canada, applicants having 413 CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) points or more obtain an ITA (Invitation to Apply), making it one of the most lenient CRS cut-off figures. A draw held previously saw candidates under the FSTC (Federal Skilled Trades Class) with a minimum of 199 CRS points being allowed to apply.
This year has been the best year for immigrants ever as on April 2017, as it exceeded the total number of ITAs released in 2016.
The present dispensation headed by Justin Trudeau, the Canadian Prime Minister, has made immigration to this North American country simpler and quicker.
Some changes made to immigration Canada are: For all Express Entry Candidates, IRCC (Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada) has made job bank registration voluntary; the Express Entry pool candidates who have a sibling in Canada may get extra points under the CRS; candidates having demonstrable French proficiency will earn more points; Express Entry candidates with tied ratings would be placed as per the accurate date and time at which they submitted their accounts; maximum age of dependent children has been raised up to 21 from 24 October 2017.
The GTS (Global Ability Stream) was launched to help employers in Canada to obtain the most experienced and skilled people to work for them from all over the globe. This stream has in place a two-week standard for the handling of applications for job licences for highly experienced sectors.
On the other hand, the Quebec Immigrant Investor Program (QIIP) was reopened in May 2017 for helping more business people and entrepreneurs to settle in Canada. The program has become very popular, as it helps candidates to gain permanent residency in Canada by making a financial investment of CAD800, 000. This program offers more benefits compared to other investor immigration programs of Canada.
Besides these, there are numerous Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) that provide skilled workers, investors and business persons more opportunities of working and residing in Canada.
