Why Obtaining Canada PR Easy? 

According to its new Immigration Levels Plan, Canada will welcome over 400,000 eligible immigrants annually until 2023. Under the plan, economic-class programs such as Federal programs for Skilled Workers, Businesses, Caregivers and various other family immigration programs are given a boost. 

Together, such immigration programs will contribute to about 80% of new immigrants in the upcoming years in Canada. Contact our immigration consultants to determine your eligibility. 

Canada has wide acceptance for offering permanent residence to foreign skilled workers even without working in Canada prior to applying. Canada PR is especially open for foreign professionals having work experience as Computer Engineers, Software Developers, IT Experts, Electronics, Mechanical, Civil Engineers, Database Analysts, Graphics Designers, Audio & Video Recording Technicians, etc. A few dedicated Tech pilots like Ontario Tech Draw and British Columbia Tech Pilot, the federal Express Entry system is best suited for such aspirants to obtain permanent residence. 

Canada made few changes in the evaluation criteria under the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. This was done to favour French-speaking or bilingual Express Entry candidates and increase immigration of such candidates to 4.4% outside the Quebec region. 

Ultimately, Canada is majorly dependent on immigration to strengthen its economy. On the social front, Canada is giving equal impetus to family immigration to support its aging population and improve its problem of low birth rate.
