International graduates benefiting from additional points for Canadian education
More international graduates have received invitations to apply for permanent residence in Canada following changes to the way Express Entry candidates are ranked, a new study shows.
New statistics from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship (IRCC) show that the proportion of former international students invited to apply for permanent residence from the Express Entry pool increased by 10 per cent in the first six month after it introduced an additional 15 or 30 points for Canadian study experience.
Prior to those changes, Express Entry pool candidates with Canadian education credentials were not awarded any additional points.
British Columbia drops minimum scores in latest draws
The Canadian province of British Columbia issued a total of 340 invitations to apply for a provincial nomination in its first draws of 2018, which took place on January 3 and 10. In these draws, which included a tech-focused draw, the number of invitations increased and the cut-off score for four out of the five categories involved decreased.
The British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) issued invitations to skilled workers and international graduates through the Skills Immigration — Skilled Worker, Skills Immigration — International Graduate, Express Entry BC — Skilled Worker and Express Entry BC — International Graduate categories.
The January 10 draw only invited candidates through the province's BC PNP Tech Pilot initiative. BC did not specify how many ITAs have been issued in the tech-only draw.
The cut-off scores in the latest draw were:
A portion of the candidates in the January 3 draw received an invitation through one the BC PNP's Express Entry-aligned sub-categories. Those candidates are now in a position to apply for an 'enhanced' provincial nomination. A successful nomination results in applicants receiving 600 additional points under the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) and an Invitation To Apply (ITA) at a subsequent draw from the federal Express Entry pool. It is important to note that an invitation to apply for the BC PNP is not the same as the ITA issued at the federal Express Entry level.
The remaining candidates under the Skilled Immigration sub-categories will have their applications for permanent residence processed outside Express Entry if they receive a nomination from BC.
Individuals interested in immigrating to Canada, and who meet the eligibility criteria for one of the the BC PNP's categories, are required to create an online profile and complete all sections of the BC PNP registration form. Applicants receive a score based on the information they supply and are entered into the selection pool for the immigration category they selected.
In order to be considered under the BC PNP, most candidates must have an indeterminate, full-time job offer from an employer in the province who is willing to support them through the application process.
The BC PNP conducts periodic draws from the pool and issues invitations to apply for provincial nomination to the highest-scoring registrants from each category.
British Columbia had a 2017 allocation of 6,000 provincial nominations. The province has yet to announce its 2018 allocation.
BC issues 290 invitations to apply for provincial nomination
The Canadian province of British Columbia has issued 290 invitations to apply for provincial nomination in two draws that took place Dec. 6 and 13.
The draws saw a slight increase over recent cut-off scores in the Skills Immigration — Skilled Worker, Skills Immigration — International Graduate, Express Entry BC — Skilled Worker and Express Entry BC — International Graduate categories.
The Dec. 13 draw was limited to the Tech Pilot, a weekly technology-focused draw that B.C.’s Provincial Nominee Program launched last summer. The pilot issues invitations to qualified registrants in any immigration category who have valid job offers in the 32 key technology occupations.
Registrants who were issued an invitation have 30 calendar days from the day they received it to submit their application for provincial nomination. Applicants who are nominated by B.C. can then apply for permanent resident status.
Canada is home to some of the best schools in the world.
The number of international students studying in Canada is over 300,000, a figure that is constantly growing. Many of these students are choosing Canada over other developed countries because of certain advantages that studying in Canada can bring.
Individuals who study in Canada receive a top-quality and internationally-respected education, preparing them for professional pursuits in Canada or abroad.
Yet, the cost of tuition and living fees in Canada are generally lower than in other developed countries
Canada voted 2nd most beautiful country in the world
Canada has come in on top once again.
British-based travel publisher Rough Guides released their latest inspiring list of the most beautiful countries in the world, as votes by readers. And it’s no surprise Canada lands in second place. It comes second only to Scotland, which took first place among 20 nations.
“There’s nothing like an amazing view to inspire you to book your next trip, whether you’re drawn by rolling countryside, isolated islands or soaring mountain peaks,” notes Rough Guides. “To help spark your imagination, we asked our readers to vote for the most beautiful country in the world.”
Rough Guides, who probably mostly have European readers, said that Canada came in a “close call” for second place.
“In a close call for second place is Canada: home of lumberjacks, beavers and maple syrup (if you believe everything you read). But there’s much more on offer in Canada, not least its mixture of raw beauty and majestic landscapes,” it said.
Bringing a Spouse, Common-Law Partner, or Family Members to Canada
For the purposes of this page, “family member” refers to a spouse, common-law/conjugal partner, and dependent children. Parents may also accompany you to Canada.
Citizens of some countries and territories require a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) in order to enter Canada as visitors. A visa cannot be applied for at a Canadian Port of Entry, and, in some cases, a medical examination may be required. This can add significant processing time to your application.
Citizens of certain countries do not need a TRV, but, as of November 10, 2016, most visa-exempt persons require an electronic Travel Authorization (eTA). The main exception is U.S. citizens, who require neither a TRV nor an eTA.
To determine whether you and/or your accompanying family members require a TRV or an eTA, use the Visiting Canada Tool.
Full-time students with a valid study permit can help their spouse or common-law partner apply for an open work permit. An open work permit will enable the spouse or common-law partner of the international student to work, and is usually valid for the entire length of the student's study permit. To be eligible for this program, the student must be studying full-time, and have a valid study permit at:
This open work permit allows its bearer to work for any employer in Canada, and does not require a job offer, or a Labour Market Impact Assessment. Bear in mind, this open work permit may exclude certain occupations (such as jobs in schools or hospitals) unless medical examination is provided.
Canadian visa offices overseas are generally able to process an application for a work permit at the same time as the study permit application. In such cases, in addition to the study permit processing fees, the applicant(s) must also include work permit processing fees.
Conversely, the spouse or common-law partner may come to Canada as a visitor and then apply for a work permit after arrival. For citizens of countries that do not require a TRV, this work permit application may be done at a Canadian Port of Entry. In some cases, citizens of visa-required countries may also contemplate a Port of Entry application.
If you or your spouse or common-law partner is already in Canada, your minor child may study without a study permit at the preschool, primary, or secondary level. Once the child reaches the age of majority in their province, however, he or she must apply for a study permit to continue his or her studies in Canada. This application can be completed from inside Canada. Please consult the table below for further information.
When applying from outside Canada, you will need to apply for your child’s study permit at a Canadian overseas visa office.
if you are planning to bring your family to Canada while you study, and you’ll be arriving at the same time, you may consider filling out one application for the entire family. If you have a variety of different permit applications (your study permit and your spouse or common-law partner’s work permit, for example) you will need extra documentation and will need to include additional fees (such as the additional fee for the work permit).
If you wish to extend or change your conditions while you are in Canada, you will need to complete a separate application. Make sure to check the date of expiry on your study permit and apply at least 30 days before that date if you would like to extend your stay.
Children accompanying an adult who is in Canada on a work or study permit may study in Canada without a study permit at the pre-school, primary and secondary levels.
