Emigrating to Canada – visas

Below are the most common routes through which one can emigrate to Canada. 

Immigrate as a skilled worker. Ranking is done according to skillset, language, education, work experience and the best candidates are then selected.  You are also allowed to bring your family members. Applications are usually processed within 4 months.

Sponsor your relatives, including your spouse, partner, children, parents, grandparents, and others to immigrate if you are a Canadian citizen and have permanent residence. 

Immigrate by being nominated by a Canadian province or territory. Each province or territory has their own program which works on a demand and supply basis. They recruit based on their economic needs. 

Immigrate as a skilled worker in the province of Quebec. This operates on the same basis as PNP but according to the specific guidelines set by the province of Quebec. 

Immigrate by graduating from a school or working in New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, or Newfoundland and Labrador. The AIP was launched in 2017 to help bring more workers to Canada’s Atlantic Region. Employers from the Atlantic region are allowed to recruit international workers. If you are successful you receive support with your emigration process.
