3 Ways That Moving To Canada From Mexico Will Change Your Life
1. Saving on Healthcare Will Allow You To Invest in Education.
As mentioned previously, Canada has some amazing benefits, such as its world-class public health care system which is free of charge to Canadian citizens and permanent residents as well as it’s a phenomenal education system that is not only ranked among the top educational institutions in the world but your children will be able to receive a world-renowned secondary education at no cost to you.
By saving on years of secondary schooling and basic healthcare, you will be able to invest in your child’s tertiary education and send them to one of the world’s most highly regarded universities.
2. Studying in Canada Gives You The Opportunity to Gain Valuable Canadian Work Experience.
Did you know that as a graduate of a designated Canadian learning institution you are able to apply for the PGWPP (Post Graduate Work Permit Program)? This allows you to gain valuable Canadian work experience in occupations with NOC code A, O, or B, which increases your chances of receiving permanent residence in Canada through the CEC (Canadian Experience Class). After just 1 year of work experience, you will be eligible to apply for the CEC through the Express Entry system and could receive permanent residence in as little as 4 months!
3. Finding a Province Where Your Occupation is In-Demand Will Help You Secure Permanent Residence in Canada.
Canada has thousands of jobs available for both semi and highly skilled workers, but the mistake that most individuals make is to apply in areas that are already saturated with skilled immigrants. As a highly-skilled individual, you may have a great chance of receiving an ITA through the Express Entry system, however, this does not guarantee that you will find a job once you move to Canada.
One of the best ways to immigrate to Canada from Mexico is to apply for a visa through a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) that has an Express Entry category. It is important to ensure that your occupation is in demand in your territory or province of choice. This will increase your chances of receiving a PN (Provincial Nomination) which is worth 600 CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System). The maximum CRS score one can get is 1200 which means that by having a PN you have already acquired half of the possible points required to receive an ITA.
This also increases your chance of finding a job offer, which is necessary to be considered eligible for the PNP. The more jobs available, the higher the chances that you will find a job and the higher your chances of receiving permanent residence in Canada.
Besides having a PN, you could also improve your language skills to improve your chances of getting a Canadian visa.
Another benefit to applying through a PNP with Express Entry categories is that having an Express Entry profile, allows provinces and territories to select eligible candidates from biweekly Express Entry draw pools. This means that your chances to move to Canada are greatly increased simply by having an Express Entry profile.
