Canada News 240,000 to 265,000 new permanent residents in 2014

Last October 28, 2013, the then, newly appointed Citizenship and Immigration Minister Chris Alexander announced that Canada will be accepting between 240,000 to 265,000 new permanent residents in 2014.  

It was emphasized in said publication that the Provincial Nominee programs will play an important role in meeting this goal. 

And am happy to say that its true this time!

We are now seeing the results of this plan by the Minestry of Citizenship and Immigration Canada.

At the start of 2014, January, the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program was implemented.

Last March 6, 2014 the Nova Scotia Nominee Program was also launched.

To meet Canada's immigration levels it seems certain that there might be more programs that will open up this year but the question is how will you be able to grab the opportunity of becoming a Permanent Resident for Canada?

First you have to have a better understanding of Canada's current Visa programs, how it has evolved to be selective and aims to choose the best and the brightest applicants from around the world.

The current Visa applications will not only ask for your Education and work requirements, it will also ask you to prove your language proficiency, have your education credentials assessed by assessing bodies they have designated, require you to provide proof of your employment and settlement plan, etc, etc...

On top of this all your documents must be complete when you file your application. Which means you have to prepare your application in advance to have the opportunity of getting a Permanent Residents Visa for Canada.

Most programs only accepts applicants with experience in Managerial, Trade Skilled and Professional occupations, but not all.
If you are interested to apply, the only way you will have a shot at getting a permanent residents Visa, will be to make yourself eligible by completing your application requirements ahead of time.

Since a lot of applicants (worldwide) wants to get a Permanent Residents Visa for Canada; the programs will open and close very fast.

Not starting your application right away will make you miss the chance of living and working in Canada.

In Short, anybody interested in immigrating must be ready all the time!

At Canadian Immigration Consultancy we meet a lot of people who miss their opportunity of immigrating to Canada, because they do not want to make the first move until there is a program that looks for their occupation or profession, what they don't realize is, without proper planning and getting their documents ready ahead of time they are not giving themselves a chance.

Most programs also have Quotas or limits the number of people who can apply.

If they start their application late, they will not make it. Most likely, the Cap or limit will have been filled out because there are other applicants, more serious than them who files their application the moment the programs opens.

As an interested applicant, the earlier you try to understand this, the more chances you will have.

Since the competition is fierce for a Canadian Visa, you have to have an edge or advantage over other applicants.

Getting ready in advance will give you the chance to correct errors you might have in your credentials and the chance to adjust to changes or acquire special requirements the program might ask you to provide.

Getting ready all the time with proper planning is the only way for you to get a Permanent Residents Visa for Canada.
