The US News & World Report in its “2021 Best Countries Report” recently announced Canada as the best country in the world.
Canada has a very friendly attitude towards immigrants and it is one of the most popular choices for immigrants from across the world.
Canada is a safe country to live in and raise a family. Canada offers the best combination of urban life with a laid-back rural lifestyle. It is a country where you can get both professional growth as well as work – life balance. Canada offers better quality of life with more earning and more savings.
The underlying principle of Canadian Immigration Law is the belief that skilled workers are the major contributory factor for taking Canada to the path of prosperity. Foreigners with work permits and international students can easily apply for permanent residency after meeting the minimum eligibility requirements.
Skilled workers who can contribute to the Canadian economy are welcomed with open arms. The following are the requirements for immigration of skilled workers:
• Good health
• No criminal history
• Bachelor’s degree in any stream
• Minimum one years’ continuous work experience (more experience will get you extra points)
• Ability to speak, read and write English or French or both languages (language test is mandatory)
• A score of 67 points in Canada’s point based immigration selection system
• One can apply for Permanent Residence (PR) in Canada from India( with skilled work experience of minimum one year)
• If married, spouse and children under 21 years of age can also migrate along with the principal applicant
• Spouse gets right to work
• After three years, can apply for Canadian citizenship
Canada offers plenty of opportunities for those looking to migrate to the country. One can work in Canada as a Skilled Worker under the Temporary Foreign Worker Program and apply for permanent residency through the Express Entry Programs: Federal Skilled Worker, Federal Skilled Trades or Canadian Experience Class.
One can study in Canada and apply for permanent residency through the Canadian Experience Class after meeting the minimum eligibility requirements.
Another way is to immigrate through the Provincial Nominee Programs. Our provinces offer several paths for qualified immigrants looking to make Canada their home.
When you become a permanent resident of Canada, you are entitled to the same rights and privileges as a Canadian citizen except for the right to vote and the right to apply for a Canadian passport , are entitled to equal treatment and equal protection.
There are excellent schemes such as Old Age Security, Guaranteed Income Supplement, and Canada Pension Plan – all three of these programs are designed to provide financial support to workers after they reach retirement age – currently age 65. To be eligible, you have to meet specific residency requirements and to have contributed to the system by paying taxes in Canada.
Medical expenses are covered through the Canadian health care program on payment of nominal amount and in certain cases no amount is payable. These expenses include visits to emergency room, immunizations, yearly exams, etc.
All children under 18 are entitled to a free education in the Canadian Public School System, which provides world class education.
In Canada, working parents are given time off when a new baby is born or adopted. Parents can opt to take leave up to 12 months and split the leave between parents.
Canada is the perfect destination for you and your family to move to. The government of Canada believes that emigration to Canada is a major driving factor of economic growth; it welcomes the diverse traditions, rituals, and customs that immigrants bring into the cultural fabric of this evolving nation.
