What does this mean for you?
If you are an applicant for Humanitarian and compassionate programs the year 2015 might be the year you will finally become a permanent resident in Canada.
If you are a Canadian Permanent Resident or a Canadian citizen who wants to bring your children, spouse, Parents or Grandparents to Canada you need to make sure that you qualify to become a sponsor before sending in your application. But also need to have your family member prepare their application requirement ahead of time. Since, the application to sponsor your family and their Permanent Residents Visa is processed at the same time.
If you are one of those applicants who is waiting for a program to apply to, so that you can become a permanent resident, the new application management system of Canada which will be launched on January 2015, the "Express Entry", may very well be the best program for you.
Interested applicants will be assessed in the programs selection criteria. If you qualify you will be allowed to post an online profile in Canadian Governments Job Bank, a website that is monitored and controlled by the Canadian Government.
You will then be assessed and ranked against other applicants, if you are ranked as one of the applicants who attained the highest scores, you will be given and invitation to apply to become a permanent Resident.
For those who does not have enough points, the Canadian Government will still consider giving you an invitation to apply if:
An employer in Canada gives you a Job Offer (must be certified and verifiable)
If you get a Nomination from one of Canada's provinces who is a participant in the Express Entry
As Canada aims to select the best and the brightest across the globe, the key to your application will be your capability to provide proper, correct, consistent and complete documentation that clearly illustrates that you are qualified for the program.
To be able to do this requires more than just looking at the programs checklist and providing the documents listed.
Moreover, you need to be more proactive. The Canadian Government will only give you 2 months to submit your requirements once you are given the invitation to apply for the program. If you do not prepare your requirements in Advance, you might ran out of time.
If you have made an application in the past you would know that most of the documents might take more than three months to secure.
Moreover, the Canadian government is known to set a timeline and a Cap in their programs to control the influx of applications they will receive.
If you wait too long to get started, it is highly likely that you will not be able to apply when the quota or Cap gets filled out or the program closes.
Canada has placed some control measures to ensure that the processing of the applications for the program will be processed quickly and efficiently. Those who acts now and makes sure that they take can take advantage of this programs will be rewarded with a much quicker processing speed. The Canadian government aims to process applications for this program in 6 months or less.
What are you waiting for? This is what you have been praying for for sometime now.
