40,000 Immigration Applicants Allowed into Canada in JanuaryBy the end of January, Canada – federal and all provinces across the country – have received a total of 40,000 immigrants via strategic economic immigration as well as sponsorship programs for families. At this rate, Canada is well poised to achieve the goal of receiving a million immigrants between 2019 and 2021.

Canada earmarked both family sponsorship program and economic immigration as key ways of achieving its three-year immigration plan, with a target of 331,000 new permanent residents set for the starting year – 2019. Targets for 2020 and 2021 are 341,000 and 350,000 respectively.

The 350,000 target for 2021 is about one percent of the total Canadian population. One percent rate of increase in population is deemed important to maintaining the continued labor force, and ultimately the economy, growth of the country.

Biggest Start Ever

Canada’s economic immigration program includes the Provincial nominee program and federal express entry system which is the primary source of skilled foreign labor to the country.

The country saw the most significant start ever to its express entry system in January. Via the system, 11,150 invitations to apply for Canadian permanent residence were issued. This appears to be a take-off from last year when a record 89,800 ITA were announced, representing the highest since its inception – five years ago.

Provincial nominee program (PNP) also contributed about 5,000 invitations to apply (ITA) in January. The reopening of the Parents and Grandparents Program (PGP) is another major factor in January.

Speaking on the January record, senior partner at a Canadian immigration law firm in Montreal – David Cohen, said January’s figure is really impressive and is a start to what is expected to be a great immigration year for the country.

in Canada Immigration/Featured/Immigration/Visas/World Visa News by

Federal Government To Process Family Reunification Applications Within Twelve MonthsThe main reason for government to have piled up applications is mostly due to the time taken to process an application, which takes up an enormous amount of time. Processing being the first step needs to be cleared in order to proceed with the steps ahead. To tackle this serious problem, IRCC has decided to effectively reduce the processing time for the family reunification applications.

The Canadian Federal Government introduced a new 12 months processing time for the new family reunification immigration applications. The processing time has been decreased by 15 percent for the applications within Canada and 10 percent for the applications coming from abroad.

The immigration department promised to process the pending applications in a year, although if the cases are very complex, they might take a bit longer.

Effective measures have been introduced to reduce the processing time greatly. Spouses, partners and dependants will have increased allocation, and the target is to increase the allocation numbers from an average of 47,000 in the previous ten years to about 64,000 allocations in 2017.

To increase the processing and to deal with backlogs, the funding is increased. IRCC received about $25 million by the government to help with the backlog issues.

The process for applying is set to be simplified greatly with more easy-to-understand applications for aspiring immigrants. Instead of showing the documents in stages, all documents will be given beforehand. Incomplete applications or applications without the necessary documents will be sent back.

The processing time has been reduced to 12 months. Moreover, IRCC also made sure that all the applications within the system will be cleared in the time span of 12 months. The new applications will be processed within 12 months from the day they will be received. Also, there are 20 percent cases, which are very complex and shall take time to be processed. It is expected that this move will help the tech sector to grow beyond leaps and bounds.

Change in law for maximum age of dependent childrenIn a move that may influence many immigrants of Canada, the legislature of Canada is planning to change the maximum age of the dependent child to less than 22 years old i.e. 21 or under. This is a great news indeed for all the migrants.

This rule was framed to promote family reunification program. The proposed change will stay as a draft for a period of 30 days, amid which it will be explored and if needed adjustments will be done for improving the rule. This change has been developed in view of Canadian demographic information. Moreover, the national census supports the need to implement this law.

It is perceived that many young adults stay with their folks for a more extended period. Given the significance of education, it is not abnormal for a few kids to stay with their nuclear family while seeking education before starting the job.

Many adults aged somewhere around 19 and 21 may not be qualified to apply for Canadian citizenship under the financial migration program, basically denying them the chance to join their family in Canada.

At the point when families can stay together as an economic family unit, their integration into Canada and their capacity to work and contribute to society increases. The proposed increase of the maximum age of the dependent child is consistent with the underlying financial pattern that kids stay at home longer with their folks, especially those studying for lengthier periods.

While the minimum age for candidates under Canadian economic movement projects is typically 18, numerous people may not yet have the required training or work experience to make an application. In this way, an explicit target of this proposed change is to empower these youngsters to acquire permanent resident status while pursuing their studies. It is expected that this program would prove to be beneficial for post-graduate students.

Going with relatives, including companions or common law accomplices, and dependent kids, may likewise move to Canada alongside the main candidate.

Considering applications where ITAs have increased and the CRS cut-off point going down generously, many of the interested candidates who did not get an ITA on this event can be hopeful about accomplishing their Canadian migration objectives.

These levels are mainly set by immigration policies.

Besides staying up with the latest requirement, there are numerous other potential actions through which applicant can expand their CRS score, and in this manner increase their odds of getting an ITA.

More migrants can now be part of QuebecKathleen Weil, Quebec Immigration Minister approved the goals of government to embark on the recent immigration policy reforms to accept more migrants. This program is named as “Together, We Are Québec” and could fulfill the dream of many migrants to be part of the country. The new immigration policy plans to raise the economic immigration to 70 % of its yearly intake. The government will allot nearly 40 Million USD in order to bring down the processing delays of application to 3 months. They have also created different types of programs for temporary employees and global scholars to be PR (permanent residents).

Statistics have revealed that persons with strong relationships to Quebec have improved the odds of effective economic settlement. These groups would also be qualified for free French online language classes. Kathleen has mentioned that huge efforts have been made in reducing the unemployment rate among migrants. Unemployment rate for migrants was 12.4 % in 2011 and has reduced to 10.7%  in 2015.

Migrants need to have good knowledge of French language to be able to integrate successfully with the Canadian citizens. Kathleen plans to take up more than one thousand migrants in the year of 2017 and 2018, which could raise the total number of migrants to 51,000 for those 2 years before raising the count to 52,500 in 2019. The number of persons available to do work is decreasing in Quebec as most of the employees are becoming older and retiring. The low-birth rate has further amplified the issue. Industries in Quebec has started to feel a stark dearth of competent and young employees. Kathleen admits that migration can solve this issue to a greater extent, and the competition among the migrants would also be tougher.

The new migration policy along with a splendid budget of 42.5 mn USD can significantly improve the migrant influx. Kathleen has stated that more global scholars from Quebec University who have completed their graduation could get PR status.
