June 01 draws invited candidates from the Skilled Worker and International Graduate sub-categories and having a minimum provincial score of 80 in all categories.

Good Time to Migrate to Canada is Now!

With the unveiling of the much-awaited Immigration Levels Plan for 2021-2023, now is the right time to migrate to Canada. Over the next three years, Canada is planning to welcome more than 1.2k new immigrants to support their economy as well as aging demography. 


About 50% of such immigrants each year are expected to come from economic-class programs like Federal Skilled Workers Programs, Canada Experience Class, Provincial Nominee Programs, etc. The likely beneficiaries are foreign skilled workers with/without work experience in Canada, international students aspiring to study and settle in Canada, and foreign entrepreneurs looking to establish their business in Canada. 


Recent changes to the evaluation criteria of the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) used for Express Entry profiles are aimed at increasing the francophone or French-speaking population outside the Quebec region by 2023. 


All these also strengthen the fact that Canada is the most preferred migrant destination, ahead of Australia and the USA.
