Are you looking to immigrate to Canada this year, but confused about the right pathway given the Covid-19 situation?
The Canadian government has not stopped immigration and most of its immigration programs are open for the new application. Having said this, you must choose the right pathway to make certain that this pandemic situation does not affect your PR application.
So, which is the right program to apply for a Canadian PR visa during the Coronavirus pandemic?
Express Entry undoubtedly remains the fastest and still the best choice for obtaining a permanent residency visa in Canada. The IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) is also accepting applications for all three categories of the EE system, i.e.
The EE system is point-based and it invites the candidates with the top score in the express entry pool. Hence, if your point score or CRS score is high, enough in the EE system (i.e. close to 470 marks for FSW candidate); you can surely go ahead and apply in the EE system. However, if your score is relatively low, you have to go for an alternate program.
If your point score is low and you are not getting an invite for the last few EE draws, it is time for you to enhance your CRS point score through a provincial nomination. If you apply in a PNP and subsequently, acquire the provincial nomination, you will get 600 points in the federal EE system. Such a huge addition of points makes you entitled to get an Invitation to apply for Canada PR in the next Express Entry draw.
Here is the stepwise process to apply for provincial nomination:
Hence, the nomination obtained through a provincial program also provide you a pathway to get permanent residency in Canada.
The common and popular provincial nominee programs of Canada are as follows:
Every PNP of Canada has different processes and requirements and the provinces keep updating them periodically. Hence, you must coordinate with a trusted Visa Advisor and consultant to choose the best provincial program and apply it in the same as per the latest guidelines.
You can also immigrate to Canada by applying for the study visa. All you need to do is choose the appropriate university and course of study and apply for admission in the same. Subsequently, you can apply for the relevant Student visa, once you have the acceptance letter from a Canadian university or college. The federal express entry system as well as the Provincial Nominee Programs of Canada also offer the permanent residency pathway to international students in Canada.

I was recommended by a close friend to use Visas Avenue. At first I was a little apprehensive to use their services as I felt that many times there was a massive communication gap. As time went by this gap got smaller and the case manager and myself could understand each other. My case manager was very thorough with the whole PR process for Canada. Read More...
