Canada’s Skilled immigration and permanent residency process is perhaps the best in the world for many reasons. In the modern era, very few advanced countries are welcoming immigrants without any fuss or issues. And Canada is certainly on top of the list of immigrant friendly countries. The high immigration rate of Canada speaks for its lenient immigration policy.
This is the reason that every skilled worker looking to make it big in an advanced nation, keeps interest in Canada immigration and PR process. If you are one of the Canadian PR aspirants, let’s find out the six selection factors of Canada PR (Permanent Residency) visa.
Canada has employed fastest Express Entry point based immigration system as a pathway to allocate the permanent residence visa to the skilled and talented people from overseas, who register their profile in this system every year. Express Entry is based on a point system which assess the applicants based on six selection factors and accordingly allocate points to the applicants.
Points obtained for these factors first decide your eligibility for Federal skilled worker category of Express Entry and later, when you reach Express entry pool, it(your CRS score in EE pool) determine, whether or not you will get the Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canada PR from IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship of Canada).The selection factors for other immigration programs of Canada such as, provincial nominee program are also more or less the same.
Let’s take a look at Canada PR selection factors.
Although, you can apply for Canada PR up to the age of 47 years. However, the applicants between 18-35 years of ages core maximum points for age factor while applying permanent residency in Canada via economic immigration program such as Express Entry system. After 35 years of age, your points for age factor start decreasing, however, you can still get PR invitation if your score is good based on other factors and obtained provincial nomination from a province of Canada.
2. Language Skills
As they say, “when in Rome, do as Romans do”.

You need to provide language test result obtained through an approved Test result for language ability in French or English proficiency with minimum CLB 7 score in Express Entry.
Your past work experience plays a vital role in helping you get the Canada PR Invitation from IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada).

You can get the crucial express entry immigration points based on your work experience obtained in past years. However, the minimum required work experience is one year.
You get some key points based on your educational qualifications. However, to get your qualifications (obtained outside Canada) verified, you need to provide an Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) report from an approved agency such as WES (Word Education Service).
You get valuable points for education, according to your qualification, i.e. University degree at the Doctoral (PhD) level (highest points) or equal, OR University level entry-to-practice professional degree (or equal).

Mr. Lenin Reddy
Highly recommend them. This is not my first experience with them, but in fact have got my brother s, bhabhi s and two friend s applications already processed through them. The fees is quite reasonable and transparent and even for a straightforward case, I would recommend going with VA. Special shout out to Vaibhav and Samiksha for standing with me throughout the process. Thanks a ton, guys!""The best thing about Visa Avenues is that when they take up your application, they really get invested in the process. I started off with a 189/190 application but when the application conditions changed, VA advised me to go for 489. This is significant as they normally dont lodge 489 applications, but did it on my behalf as I was already a client. This willingness to go beyond what is strictly required is what I appreciate the most. Further, they are very diligent in going through the requirements and in dotting every i and ticking every t.
"Visa Avenues is a superb professional services available for immigration related consulting. They are super prompt, reliable, thorough and provide alternatives if required. My experience is based on working with Samiksha Lal, Vaibhav Saini and Shivangi Arora."
