Express Entry system

Indian Students now Exceed Chinese Students at Canadian Schools

in Canada Immigration by

Indian Students now Exceed Chinese Students at Canadian Schools Currently, there is a hike in the number of Indian students in Canadian universities, and this is greater than the Chinese students.

According to the statistics given by the Canadian High Commission to the Globe and Mail newspaper; in 2018, Canadian study permits were held by 172,000 citizens from Indian compared to the 142,000 Chinese citizens.

As reported by the same newspaper, in 2018, 85,825 new Chinese students arrived in Canada; while 107,795 students from India – a 300% increase since 2015 – arrived in Canada.

The accessibility of an open work permit after graduation is the major factor that drives the Indian students to universities in Canada. Also, citizenship and permanent residency have simplified pathways in Canada.

These Canadian policies contrast the US government’s effort to restrict foreign workers with H-1B work visas, one thing which the Indians really benefitted from.

Other reasons include diverse population, quality of education and the multicultural nature of the Canadian universities. Also, the fact that Canadian education is less expensive as compared to the US is another driving force.

Work Permit, Immigration Options for International Students

International students are termed immigration candidates due to their competency in French or English, form of education and the integration of their large numbers into the Canadian society.

Hence as a form of encouragement to remain in the country, a Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) can be applied for by foreign graduates of eligible Canadian colleges and universities. This visa is valid for three years and requires no job offer.

Job opportunities at anywhere in the country are available to any foreign graduate with PGWP, even with the opportunity to change employers at will. This is as a result of the open work permit.

The Express Entry System which is the main economic immigration gateway in Canada rewards Canadian education with extra points. Also, pathways to the permanent residence are provided by provinces in Canada for eligible foreign graduates of the country’s universities.

Moving to Canada to be much easier in 2017

Moving to Canada to be much easier in 2017The Annual Immigration Target of Canada in 2017 is out and it says a figure of 300,000 immigrants have flocked to Canada. However, many people think that the rates would be even higher, as there is huge spurt in the number of migrants these days. It is a matter of fact that the target was same for the year 2016 when the government of Canada had the goal of bringing in 56,000 refugees from Syria.

The immigration plan consists of different aspects which show the numbers of immigrants expected from different categories. Statistics reveal that there are 172,500 immigrants from Economic category, 84,000 immigrants from family category and 40,000 refugees which add up to a total of 300,000 immigrants. In 2017, numbers of refugees is expected to decrease while the economic immigrants are expected to increase.

These figures can extend up to 320,000 as the upper limit set for economic immigrants are 183,500. If it is likely to go by this figure then the score for Express Entry System would be further decremented. According to the hypothetical condition, in 2017 the economic admission may face a decrease of component of about 25%. It will reflect upon the allowance of 55,275 new admissions in Canada coming from the categories like skilled worker, Canadian experience class, post graduate students and Atlantic Immigration Plot Program.

It is also expected that international students who had graduated from Universities based in Canada will be able to secure an ITA without a LMIA, when they are submitting an application for Permanent Residence (PR).

The larger number of invitations can only get positive response if the CRS score will be decreased. New rules will help the postgraduate students to settle down in Canada only with the permanent residency. This in turn will create a whole new category with 5,000 applications. If this system is continued to follow then it will be very much easier to move to Canada through Express Entry System in 2017.

Free Language Training for Immigrants in OntarioThe recent news is that Ontario is spending a whooping $60 million dollars in providing language courses for all immigrants, regardless of the time already spent in the province. There are 4,000 different courses available in 325 different locations across the province. Over 70,000 immigrants each year take part in the courses offered by Ontario’s Adult Non-Credit Language Training Program. More than 2,000 Syrians have enrolled in the courses in this year ending August.

All the immigrants are assessed in beginning so that the right course could be decided for them. Laura Albanese, Minister of Citizenship and Immigration quoted “Strong language skills help immigrants succeed”. English and French are considered as second language courses in Ontario to all immigrants and aims to help the immigrants reach their full potential and get quality jobs, pursue their careers and also get higher education.

Meanwhile, Ontario also declared $3.35 million investment in its Bridge Training Program for newcomers, aimed to guide them through the employment market. There are reports of immigrants doing lower paid fill-in jobs in Canada for months and also years, which Ontario Bridge Training Program wants to eradicate by bringing together immigrants and employers so that the qualifications and transferable skills are highlighted.

The Ontario Bridge Training Program aims for the following

  • To improve the access to job finding services like, career mentoring, employment events, language skill training and a micro loan program.
  • Help the employers in recruiting, hiring and retaining internationally talented immigrants with online activities.
  • Help identify the newcomer’s transferable skills and alternate career options using services like mentoring events and promoting entrepreneurship.

With the help of Express Entry system, one can convert their foreign obtained qualifications to an Educational Credential Assessment, which then calculates the qualification in Canadian terms. It is envisaged that this initiative taken by the Ontario province to recognize the hidden immigrant talents could provide them better career opportunities.
