Popular for its beautiful locations, tourist spots, and a handsome prime minister, Canada despite being the second largest country, has a smaller population in comparison to others. For a number of years there has been a huge demand for Immigration to Canada from Pakistan.
Justin Trudeau, is one of the most popular Prime Ministers in the history of the nation and Canada itself is amongst the friendliest of nations on this planet. The country has currently been welcoming immigrants from all over the world. From students to families – everyone is welcome.
Immigration to Canada From Pakistan
Each year, Canada accepts almost a million immigrants. A number of Pakistanis also immigrate to Canada under the skilled worker class, family sponsorship, provincial nominee and investors program for better financial opportunities. Also, If you become a Canadian Permanent Resident, you can, later on, apply for Canadian Citizenship as well.
So if you are looking forward to moving to Canada, you can apply through the following methods to get Canadian Immigration.
Federal Skilled Worker Program
You need to submit an application into a pool of foreign skilled professionals. There is a variety of fields and categories offered in which you can apply.
Your application is ranked on the basis of your work experience, age, and education. If you are selected, you will get an invitation to apply for Canadian Permanent Residence.
The current application processing system in effect is the Express Entry Program which is based on your skills, experience, education and language skills.
You must provide Canadian equivalency of your educational credentials and a proof of your language proficiency by submitting your exam results from the CIC designated institutions.
