How to Become a Permanent Resident of Canada
We will consider three economic immigration programs through which US immigrants in Canada with or without job offers as administrators can become permanent residents and eventually citizens of Canada if they wish. Right now, permanent residency is the main goal as it allows you to access social benefits and makes you a formal part of our society.
Express Entry System
Canada’s premier economic migration vehicle is the Express Entry System. Made up of three programs based on applicants skills and expertise, the system works by candidates creating online profiles and entering their relevant information such as work experience, qualifications, language abilities, and so on. As an administrator with a post secondary qualification, you may be eligible for the Federal Skilled Worker Program. Using the information you provide, a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score will be calculated and you will be entered into the Federal Skilled Worker Programs pool of candidates. Twice a month draws are held and the candidates with the highest CRS scores in their pool are invited to apply (ITA) for permanent residency. Maximizing your CRS score is the key to receiving and ITA, and our professional consultants know just how to do it.
Another option under Express Entry is the Canada Experience Class Program (CEC). If you were to work in Canada for a year, under a valid work permit of course, or already have a year over experience working in Canada as an administrator, you can apply to this program, who’s applicants receive preference in the draws over the Federal Skilled Worker Program.
Provincial Nominee Program
Every Canadian province, besides Quebec and Nunavut, has its own Provincial Nomination Program (PNP). The programs are operated by the provincial governments and US immigrants can apply through the PNP for permanent residency in Canada. Every province has at least two streams for professional workers. One is connected to the Express Entry System, and if you are successful at securing a provincial nomination, you will create an Express Entry profile and your nomination will be added to your score. A provincial nomination is worth a whopping 600 points out of the total 1,200, so you are guaranteed an ITA as long as you meet the eligibility criteria. The second stream is an in-demand labour stream, which is aimed at particular labour shortages within the provinces, and you guessed it, administrators are on most of them.
If you know which province you would like to live and work in, it would be wise to investigate the particular immigration streams available so that you can apply for a provincial nomination and become a permanent resident of Canada as soon as possible.
Atlantic Immigration Pilot
It’s all in the name; if you graduate from a university, maybe with a masters in administration, or secure a job offer in New Brunswick, Newfoundland & Labrador, Prince Edward Island or Nova Scotia and you could be eligible for permanent residency. These beautiful provinces are looking to attract more immigrants to the region by making the process a lot easier for foreigners. All you require is a job offer and you can apply to become a permanent resident of Canada as a foreign graduate, skilled or semi-skilled worker. Employers in the Atlantic region do not require Labour Market Impact Assessments (LMIA’s) to hire foreign workers, which makes it all a lot easier for everyone.
