Tips for responsible Canadian visa applicants

Rights and responsibilities of prospective immigrants to Canada

Rights and responsibilities of prospective immigrants to Canada

Do you know what matters most in the process of applying for Canada immigration? It’s being honest and complete in submissions made to immigration officials. That will go well with the officials determining cases in an objective and consistent way.

When a prospective immigrant answers accurately and honestly, it increases the chances of a smoother migration process. If the immigration officer fails to respect or follow the rules, such an officer’s assessment will be inaccurate and disputed. On the other hand, if an applicant fails to give correct and complete information, the immigration application will be rejected.

In addition, if a candidate is attempting immigration to Canada, and applying for a Canada PR, he/she will also keep the following points in mind:

  • Gather all documents required to be submitted well in advance so that no submission falls short and the application gets rejected.
  • Read the instructions for submitting an application thoroughly and follow them strictly so that the application gets through scrutiny.
  • Be complete and accurate in the details furnished.
  • Be totally aware of the expiry dates of documents submitted along with the application. These could be:
    • Passport
    • Police background checks
    • Work permit/study permit
    • Language test results
    • Bank statements
    • Medical assessment
    • Invitation to apply
  • Always inform a change in circumstances to IRCC after submitting the application. This will keep the application and credentials updated and acceptable for being true and accurate. E.g., change of address or a new highest educational qualification.

Remember, being right, on-time, and honest makes the processing of a Canada immigration visa pretty smooth and successful.

Europol against fake COVID-19 test certificates

Europol has issued an Early Warning Notification to alert on the presence of fraudsters selling fake COVID-19 test certificates. Cases related to this menace has been detected in parts of Europe.

This new menace is putting migration overseas a risky affair. Europol has drawn the world’s attention to this situation that involves even a forgery ring that sells negative results for COVID-19 to passengers at the Charles De Gaulle airport in France. This ring has been nabbed.

The travelers are charged between €150 and €300 for each document.

People indulging in such fraudulent practices have been apprehended in the UK’s Luton airport too. There, the authorities found fraudsters selling COVID-19 test documents for £100. These documents had names of genuine laboratories been faked on the certificates.

In the Netherlands, scammers were found to use messaging to sell fake COVID-19 test certificates for €50 to €60. Fake test results have been sold by fraudsters for even €40 and were apprehended by the Spanish National Police in December 2020.

Europol is short for European Union Agency for Law Enforcement Cooperation. The agency has issued its warning against these fraudsters taking advantage of the COVID-19 situation and has asked people traveling on a visitor visa or any other visa to steer clear of these criminals.

  • You must have been residing in Canada on a valid temporary visa between January 30, 2020, and May 31, 2021.
  • You must have lost your temporary resident status between January 30, 2020, and May 31, 2021.
  • You must have been staying in Canada since your first entry into Canada.

A processing fee of $200 has to be paid too.

How does restoration happen?

  • If you are eligible for restoration, your application will be assessed by an immigration officer.
  • In case you meet all requirements, the concerned officer will issue a visitor record. Otherwise, the appropriate stay permit that lists out the conditions for restoration of status will be issued.
  • The document will then be mailed to you, the applicant.

However, if you turn out to be ineligible for restoration, a decision will come from the Minster’s delegate. It’s this official who will decide on the disposition of your case. The result could be either of the following:

  • The delegate will refer your case to a hearing for your admissibility
  • The delegate will issue an order for departure
  • The delegate will let you stay in Canada

Canada plans to do more of the needful for women STEM professionals

Canada is celebrating women and girls in STEM

Canada is celebrating women and girls in STEM

Canada is working diligently to set a commendable example of appreciation for women. These women have been involved in STEM jobs, contributing immensely to the well-being of people during the COVID-19 crisis. On February 11, 2021, the country felicitated the work of women scientists in social sciences and health disciplines. These are both STEM disciplines. The occasion was the International Women & Girls in Science Day.

They have researched, worked, and repurposed their resources and skills for a purpose. They have provided much-needed assistance to Canada in its response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Women’s representation in Canada’s science and health sectors has set an example for the world. Their work in Canada, in various fields, are greatly contributory to the cause of finding the best solutions to crises like COVID-19.

Women in Engineering

Women have been actively involved in designing and making protective equipment for personal use. These were meant for frontline workers. They have also been keeping essential municipal services running. They have supported the work of maintaining the connectivity through telecommunication networks. They have helped immensely by adapting university programs to keep them on track.

Women in technology

As digital health experts, women have developed technology to track the spread of the virus. They have also come up with start-ups that work with innovative technology. Such technology provides valuable assistance during COVID-19 and beyond.

Women as scientists

Women who are epidemiologists and mathematicians have worked on the complex task of disease modeling. Scientists among women have worked in various capacities. They include:

  • Biochemists
  • Specialists in infectious diseases
  • Immunologists
  • Cellular & molecular biologists
  • Experts in genomic science

Women as social science workers

Women have helped policy-makers understand the impact and results of interventions in public health. They have given insight into the best ways to run vaccination programs and communicate effectively about them. They have also worked to ensure that the voices of those affected most by the pandemic get representation. This was essential while developing policies and programs for COVID-19 eradication.

Nevertheless, the fact is that women and girls in many other STEM occupations face underrepresentation. More women who choose a STEM career are more likely to pursue a degree in sciences like Biology. They rarely choose computer science, engineering, and mathematics.

There is a series of barriers that create what’s called a “glass obstacle course”. They throw in many barriers – formal and informal – at every stage from a study in Canada to work in the field. Gender discrimination is the most glaring obstacle. Other challenges are racism, minority under-representation, handling familial responsibilities, and gender bias.

The solution

Canada is taking definite steps in the direction of eradicating the plight of women in their careers. The solutions thought out for implementation include:

  • Open conversations inside institutions and communities
  • Acknowledging that gender inequities have increased in STEM sectors during the COVID-19 crisis
  • Urging institutions to address the factors that discourage women from pursuing STEM careers
  • Working on strategies to improve recruitment, training, and retention of women
  • Developing and implementing policies that promote gender equality and create more inclusive workspaces
  • Recognize and celebrate the achievements of girls and women

How could your Canada PR application get rejected

Why Canada PR applications could get rejected

Why Canada PR applications could get rejected

Probably the most dejecting moment for a spirited immigrant would be to get his/her Canada PR visa application getting rejected. Canada is the destination a great many people have in mind when considering a place to move to for all the right reasons: great social culture, best job opportunities, numerous pathways to immigrate, and Canada’s need for skilled immigrants.

Canada immigration is a systematic process, that requires transparency and strict adherence to the process. This is the reason for handing this duty over to professionals. But as applicants, you must be aware of the mistakes and misses that can end up in rejection of your application for a visa like the Canada PR visa.

Here we will try to understand the common reasons for rejection of application for Canada PR.


The following are the many instances of material misrepresentation:

  • Non-declaration of a visa refusal that you had for another country
  • You submitting a fake document
  • You not mentioning a family member
  • You claiming a job experience which is fake
  • You engaging in marriage without genuineness

Now, here are the instances of non-material misrepresentation

  • Reversal of month and date of birth on the application
  • Claiming to be single or unmarried while actually widowed
  • You failing to provide correct and consistent information in any one document among many

Medical reasons

Canadian government won’t allow an immigrant’s application that could make an excessive demand on the healthcare system of Canada. Any applicant will undergo a medical examination certified by Canada’s medical officers.

You as the applicant suffering from a severe disease and which is a threat to Canada’s general health condition could also be a reason for rejecting PR application.


If you as an applicant have a history of a criminal conviction in your home country, your PR application could be rejected on that ground. The offense could be something as small as a traffic incident.

Missing a deadline

If you miss meeting the deadlines fixed by IRCC during any stage of application your application for PR could be rejected on that ground.

Financial reasons

Submitting a bank statement or other proof of funds is an important requirement of a PR application. If you as an applicant fails in producing such a document of proof, your PR application could be rejected.

Incomplete documentation

In the PR application process, it’s essential that all the required and relevant documents are submitted. It must be ensured that no document required by the process is left out to be submitted. Or else, your PR application could be rejected.

Application without being aware of the requirements for eligibility

Different immigration programs have different specific requirements for you to be eligible for the program. If any requirement under a PR visa program is not met, your application could get rejected.

British Columbia welcomes 74 new candidates in a Tech Pilot draw

BC PNP’s Tech Pilot draw invited 74 new candidates

BC PNP’s Tech Pilot draw invited 74 new candidates

On February 9, 2021, British Columbia invited 74 new immigration candidates to apply for a provincial nomination for Canada PR. This was a BC PNP Tech Pilot draw.

The candidates chosen came under Skills Immigration and Express Entry BC categories. They belonged to the International Graduate and Skilled Worker and were expected to have a minimum provincial score of 80 points.

The Tech Pilot acts as an immigration pathway on a fast-track basis. It allows in-demand workers in the tech industry to arrive and work in Canada. It also brings in international students.

To be eligible for the program, the candidates must register themselves in any of the BC’s currently active provincial immigration streams. They must also have an offer for a job in BC that’s valid for at least 12 months. The job must be present in the list of 29 eligible jobs under Tech Pilot.

A profile created via BC PNP’s online portal is necessary for the candidates to apply for Express Entry BC or Skills Immigration categories. They must register themselves under BC PNP’s SIRS.

Based on many factors including work experience, education level, and a BC employment offer, the applicants’ profiles are evaluated. Then it’s determined who all can be invited to apply in a particular invitation round.

With a nomination form BC, Express Entry candidates will get extra 600 CRS points, effectively guaranteeing them an ITA in an Express Entry draw that’s conducted afterward.

The invited candidates must file a detailed application within 30 days of receiving the invitation.

Learn the process of getting Canada PR

Learn the process of getting Canada PR

Don’t you love to immigrate to Canada? If you do, we have an update on Canada immigration as to the steps to be taken to successfully move to this country. We will try to understand the steps, procedures, processes, and best practices involved in one of the most life-changing decisions you would have made seeking a Canada immigration visa.

So, when we talk about immigration Canada has a very exclusive system called the Express Entry that works to manage new immigrants arriving in Canada. It’s Express Entry that organizes and does the processing of applications of potential immigrants.

Now, applying to Express Entry requires some preparation and clarity on your part. That clarity can be achieved in the following ways:

Find your NOC

In brief, NOC is a systematic classification and coding of all jobs that are available in the Canadian labor market. These include several in-demand jobs which you can track if they are suitable to your skills, experience, and qualification.

There are levels by skill type that are set by NOC. They go by codes like 0, A, B, C, and D. When you choose a line of work and occupation to go for in Canada, you will know which stream to go under. It’s up to you to check what skill level is required for eligibility under the particular stream you have chosen to immigrate to.

Get your ECA done

If you have no experience of studying in Canada, it becomes necessary that your current qualifications be assessed for compatibility with a Canadian qualification. The IRCC has approved third-party service providers who do that job for you.

Once your educational credentials match up to the Canadian qualification required, you get through and become eligible on this front to apply for a Canada PR.

Take English/French language tests

This is very important! To immigrate to Canada, you must have a certain level of practical skill in the English or French language. To prove it, you can take a test like IELTS or CELPIP for English and TEF Canada or TCF Canada for French.

Get the necessary bands or do better and prove that you are eligible for Canadian immigration.

Check your eligibility to Express Entry

Here’s where some other factors apart from education and language proficiency play an important role in deciding your eligibility. Your profile created in the Express Entry system is ranked by CRS for factors like work experience and language proficiency also.

Requirements per immigration program vary and involves variables like proof of sufficient funds.

Calculate your CRS score

You don’t have to sweat with a pencil and paper for this as there are enough automated tools online to find your CRS score based on your inputs. By understanding your CRS scores before applying for a Canada PR visa, you can achieve clarity. You can make the right decision as to which stream and what immigration program you must utilize to move to Canada.

Now that the prep talk is done, let’s get down to the real process of getting a Canada PR visa.

The first step to take to apply to Express Entry is to submit your profile. For that, have these documents ready with you:

  • Result of your language test
  • Report of ECA assessment
  • A travel document like a passport

After you submit your profile, the ranking it got with CRS could lead to your getting an ITA for PR in Canada. Then, you will have to file a complete application backed with all necessary additional documents to obtain your Canada PR visa. These documents include:

  • Police clearance certificates
  • Reference letters
  • Additional documents of identity
  • Medical examination results

Any candidate with degrees/certificates from college/university and having experience in skilled occupation with at least moderate language proficiency in English/French is considered an ideal candidate for immigrating to Canada. The candidate could also be eligible to apply under the Express Entry programs of FSTP, FSWP, and CEC.

Express Entry for Skilled Workers

As a skilled worker trying to immigrate and work in Canada through the Express Entry system and its pathways, you must:

  • Have experience working in a continuous full-time skilled job (or equivalent part-time job) of at least a year in the last 10 years
  • Be able to demonstrate your language skill in English or French in an approved language test and at least have a CLB score of 7 in either of these languages
  • Have completed your post-secondary education that will be subject to assessment against Canadian standards with an ECA

With these minimum requirements fulfilled, you, as a skilled worker, can apply to the Express Entry.

Picturing the ideal Express Entry candidate

You already have the sense of how your CRS score and ranking decide the candidate’s chances of being chosen for immigration. But still certain common trends we can observe can help us identify the ideal candidate for Express Entry. Going by that observation, an ideal Express Entry candidate is:

  • Under 30 years old
  • One with a minimum of 2 Bachelor’s/Masters degrees
  • Able to demonstrate moderate to high proficiency in English/French (with a CLB score of at least 8)
  • One with skilled work experience of at least 3 years

If you think you can do better at the CRS score, you probably know these score boosters already:

  • Higher proficiency in English/French language
  • Mastery in English and French
  • A Master’s degree or Ph.D.
  • An experience of working or studying in Canada
  • A Canadian sibling currently living in Canada
  • An offer for an arranged employment from a Canadian employer
  • A nomination that came to you via PNP

So, how much does Express Entry cost?

Well, here are the costs involved in Express Entry:

  • $300 (Average cost) for Language tests
  • $200 (Average cost) for ECA
  • $85/person for Biometrics
  • $1,325 for an adult and $225 for a child as Government fees
  • $450 for an adult and $250 for a child (average cost) as Medical examination fees
  • $100 per country (average cost) for Police clearance certificates

Your initial submission of an Express Entry profile won’t cost you anything. You will have to pay a fee only when you apply for a Canada PR after receiving an ITA. If you are nominated by a Canadian province, you will have to pay a provincial immigration fee over and above the processing fees to the government.

Unless you are applying under CEC or have a valid offer for employment, you will have to demonstrate that you have enough funds to support yourself after you immigrate to Canada. Here’s a table that shows the funds required as per family size as of January 3, 2021:

Family size Funds needed
7 $34,299
6 $30,806
5 $27,315
4 $24,083
3 $19,836
2 $16,135
1 $12,960

For every extra family member, you must have $3,492.

Job-offer for Express Entry

You won’t need to be offered a job to participate in Express Entry. If you have a job offered in Canada, it could add 50 to 200 points to your application for Express Entry. The points will be awarded when you have a positive LMIA. The job offer has to a formal one and points won’t be awarded to your Express Entry profile if that’s not the case. Neither should such an informal job offer be mentioned in your application.

Will it be a long wait for the Express Entry process to complete?

Express Entry process can take 6 months to process in normal cases. This is the time taken from the submission of your profile to issuing your Canada PR visa. Here are some things you would want to know:

  • A profile will stay active in the pool of Express Entry candidates for 12 months in case you aren’t issued an ITA.
  • If you received an ITA, you must file the full application with the required documents within 90 days.
  • Once IRCC receives your complete application, your Canada PR visa will in all normal cases get processed in 6 months or lesser.

Becoming a permanent resident in Canada is a process you can invest your time and effort in to reap long-term gains. You will be welcomed in Canada for the resourceful person you are and you can find a great standard of life and career opportunities that will set your future bright.

The latest list of in-demand jobs in Canada

The latest list of in-demand jobs in Canada

It’s 2021. it’s time to have new hopes from Canada immigration. It’s fair enough to take advantage of the advances in the COVID-19 vaccination process progressing around the world. It’s wise now to make your way into Canada sooner. With the skills you have, you must be ready to make efforts to immigrate to work in Canada. Why? Because Canada needs people like you.

Canada has always welcomed immigrants. They possess the skillsets and experience that Canadian provinces need. These immigrant workers meet the labor market requirements of these provinces. International workers who arrive in Canada on a Canada Work Visa will find the opportunity to become a Canada PR. They will gain the advantage of even becoming a citizen eventually if they wish to.

When it comes to identifying the jobs that are open for immigrants – jobs that are in demand – you can look up a list. The list of such occupations is called the NOC list. The NOC codes of occupations help you to research:

  • Educational requirements for a particular job
  • Job descriptions
  • Related jobs
  • Skills required

The Canadian employers use the NOC to write job descriptions. With it, they also identify the skills required for new job postings. The government agencies like IRCC use it to identify the shortage of skills in the job market of Canada.

CRS requirements for Canada immigration

CRS requirements for Canada immigration

Thousands of people get Canada PR every year. Immigrants are instrumental in the progress of Canada’s economy as it has a low birth rate and its provinces are in need of skilled workers to develop. The process of Canada immigration has not ceased even in the face of a crisis like COVID-19.

People love Canada. Canada has many goodies to offer including a high standard of living, a stable economy, job opportunities, and the prospect of getting a Canada PR visa in a simpler manner than what it takes with other countries of the world. You just have to be a skilled, deserving candidate and Canada offers many ways to arrive in the country to study, settle, and work in Canada.

When it comes to immigration Canada has the Express Entry system that manages the applications of potential immigrants who apply under 3 economic immigration programs namely FSTP, FSWP, and CEC.

Besides the federal selection of candidates, Express Entry is also a major source of profiles for provinces to find suitable candidates to recruit them to work in their labor markets. For this, the provinces conduct PNP immigration draws.

When candidates file their application to immigrate to Canada, they create a profile and submit it to IRCC. This profile gets through a process of grading by CRS, which involves ranking the profile on criteria such as age, education, work experience, and proficiency in English or French language.

The higher the ranking, the better the chances of the candidate to make it into getting selected for Canadian immigration. If the candidate gets nominated by a province that sees potential in him/her, 600 CRS points are added to his/her profile, which will bring his/her profile to the front of the line to be picked up in the following Express Entry draw.

CRS points are quite instrumental in deciding the worth of your profile in the Express Entry system. So, let’s understand the number of CRS points required for Canadian immigration in the Express Entry system.

28 points for language skills – It’s essential to be able to communicate fluently in English to immigrate to Canada. If you know the other official language of Canada, French, you have a greater advantage when it comes to being selected to the Canadian job market.

25 points for education – If you have had your schooling in Canada, a certificate/diploma/degree from Canada, you stand a better chance to immigrate to the country.

15 points for work experience – The CRS points you receive are based on the number of years of work experience you got doing a full-time job. Part-time work experience for the skill-type 0, A, or B of the NOC will also do if the work duration was at least 15 hours per week for 24 months. For a full-time job, this would be at least 30 hours per week.

12 points for age – The best age is between 20 and 29 years to score most in Canada immigration.

10 points for arranged employment in Canada – For a job offer of a minimum of 1 year in Canada, you will get CRS points. You must have this offer for a job before you arrive in Canada as a Federal Skilled Worker.

10 points for adaptability – You and your partner (spouse or common partner) immigrating with you to Canada can score up to 10 points CRS points for adaptability.

In all, a minimum score of 67 points is needed to qualify for Canada PR in 2021.

Knowing the CRS score essentials will help you make the right preparation for immigrating to Canada.
