Aspirants willing to obtain permanent residence will be ecstatic to know about the launch of the new electronic process. The new system will do away with Canada in-person interviews which were earlier mandatory to confirm permanent resident status.
Implementing the new system as part of a coronavirus measure, the immigration minister, Marco Mendicino, said, “New process has greatly reduced the time it takes to land new permanent residents.”

Moving To Canada – Real Case Study
An opinion article that appeared in the CIC news portal viewed Immigration to Canada is imperfect, but it’s also the place to be.
Immigration to Canada may not be perfect as taxes are high, for instance, the price displayed in stores does not include sales tax. Many immigrants may also find the internet and mobile plans extremely expensive. It may be around $45 per month, inclusive of taxes, for unlimited calls but a mere 5 GB of data.
While there are excellent career opportunities in Canada, provincial governments typically guarantee two weeks of paid vacation time every year. Saskatchewan mandates three weeks. While it may be less, even the United States offers the same or mostly less number of paid leave to immigrants.
However, moving to Canada has some unparalleled and undisputed benefits, such as:
- Canada’s freedom of speech and freedom of expression laws gives even the new immigrants freedom to express and become their true selves.
- Canada’s free universal healthcare system: free of cost high-quality medical care and highly subsidized medicines
- The geographical beauty of Canada encompasses the high mountains, majestic landscapes, diverse wildlife. There is plenty to explore in the second-largest country in the world.
Canada’s Express Entry pathway is the most preferred option for immigration by many foreign skilled workers. They would be easily eligible to apply for immigration through Canada’s Express Entry system, whereas for certain other countries, they needed to have more work experience or a job offer. In addition to it, entrepreneurs who are willing to start a new business or manage an existing business are in huge demand and can easily get a provincial nomination. Receiving a provincial nomination is a guaranteed ticket to permanent residence in Canada.
