How to Stay Up to Date With Canada Immigration Rules 2022
The new Canada Immigration Rules 2022 have several changes that affect the immigration process. For one, the province of Quebec has full responsibility for the selection of immigrants destined for Quebec.
Unlike other provinces, Quebec has no family class or protected persons. The province’s 2022 level plan, which is only available in French, includes admissions on humanitarian and public policy grounds. Additionally, the plan allows certain admission categories, such as permit holders and people from Afghanistan.
Occupation-based EE draws
The Immigration and Refugee Protection Act is undergoing changes that will allow for occupation-based draws. These changes would allow individual provinces and territories to select candidates for immigration to Canada.
Employers will play a significant role in selecting economic immigrants. They will have access to the Job Bank, a newly enhanced database that identifies suitable candidates. The changes would also include an economic goal for the category.
Currently, every occupation in Canada falls under a four-digit numerical code called the National Occupational Classification (NOC) code. These codes describe the main duties of a position and the employment requirements.
You can find the NOC code for a position by searching for its title. You must then read the description to make sure that the NOC code you use matches the job duties. In addition, you must look at the NOC code for the level of skills required for the occupation.
To qualify for the occupation-based EE draws, applicants must have at least one year of full-time paid work experience in the same occupation in Canada. They must also have a language proficiency level of CLB 7 or higher.
They should also have tested for and received approval from the Canadian Language Assessment Council within the last two years.
Six-month processing time for Express Entry
Currently, Express Entry is a process by which Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) invite applicants for Canadian permanent residence based on their Comprehensive Ranking System scores.
However, in the years ahead, the IRCC intends to modify this process to make it more selective. As a result, it plans to hold specific draws to target specific skills and occupations.
Processing times for new Express Entry applications are expected to remain at six months, according to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). While this is still an extremely long time to wait, the IRCC hopes to reach its goal of processing most applications in six months.
Express Entry is the fastest way to obtain a permanent residence in Canada. However, there are several tests and requirements. To be eligible for the program, you must have a good IELTS score and prove your skills and qualifications to the Canadian authorities. If you meet these requirements, you could be in Canada in less than six months.
IRCC revised Express Entry Proof of funds requirement
The IRCC has updated the minimum amount required for immigrants to settle in Canada. While the change is not drastic, it will impact your ability to apply for permanent residency.
Specifically, this requirement affects those who qualify for the Federal Skilled Worker Program, which targets those with skills and job experience who can establish themselves economically in Canada. The rules also consider factors such as age, education, and adaptability to Canadian culture.
As a result, the new rule requires applicants to have adequate funds to meet the Express Entry Proof of Funds requirement. This new requirement will apply to those who wish to apply through the Federal Skilled Worker Program or the Federal Skilled Trades Program.
The new rules were announced on March 31, 2022. The IRCC plans to finalize all applications within six months. Once an applicant meets the eligibility requirements, IRCC will issue a permanent resident visa. If he or she is accepted, he or she will receive a confirmation letter.
If the application is rejected, the applicant will not receive another invitation. In addition, applicants must obtain a valid Educational Credential Assessment from a recognized body. Moreover, a person must meet the requirements of the National Occupational Classification (NOC).
Online application for Temporary Visas
Temporary Visas for foreign workers can allow you to work in Canada for a variety of short-term periods. If you are skilled, you may eventually be eligible for permanent residency. However, if you are a low-wage worker, you are unlikely to be eligible for permanent residency.
To apply for a temporary resident visa, you must meet certain requirements. One of these is a medical exam. Applicants who have had an up-front medical exam are likely to receive a more expedited processing time. However, applicants are required to provide proof of their medical examinations.
If you are applying for a temporary resident visa for yourself or someone else, you must fill out an application form for each applicant. The form is not difficult to fill out, but it does require a computer. Using a computer will save you time and minimize the chance of making mistakes.
You must also type in the universal client identification (UCI) number if you have one. You must also fill out a family information form if you are traveling as a minor with another person.
Travel Updates for foreign students
If you are a foreign student in Canada, you may be wondering how to stay up to date with the new travel rules. Luckily, there are some ways to keep yourself updated.
First, follow the travel rules. Often, changes in immigration rules can happen without warning. Before you leave for Canada, make sure you are fully vaccinated.
This way, you can visit Canada without worrying about catching any disease. Additionally, it’s important that you get a valid travel authorization. Depending on when you’ll be traveling, you may also need to apply for a study permit.
Latest update of the Atlantic Immigration Program AIP
The AIPP has been a popular program for immigrants and employers across the Atlantic region. It helped fill in labor market gaps and facilitated the immigration of foreign workers.
The program is designed to attract skilled immigrants to Atlantic Canada. Candidates must meet certain requirements and be able to prove their English language proficiency in all four capacities.
For example, candidates must have a minimum score of 5.0 on the Canadian Language Benchmark for English and French or a minimum score of 4.0 on the IELTS General English proficiency test. Those who meet these requirements are eligible to apply under the Atlantic Immigration Program.
The program is employer-driven and is designed to attract skilled workers and business owners to the region. It supports the Atlantic Growth Strategy by bringing a diverse range of people to the region to fill job openings.
New Processing time tool
The Immigration and Refugee Council of Canada (IRCC) recently updated its online processing time tool, giving applicants a more accurate estimate of how long their applications will take to be processed.
The updated tool uses data from the last six months to calculate processing times. This means that applicants will be able to see if their processing time is within the new standards or not.
Express Entry applicants are one of the most popular routes to immigration to Canada. This process allows skilled individuals from overseas to settle in Canada. This method is very popular, with draws taking place almost every two weeks.
The Canadian government regularly implements and announces changes in immigration rules. The changes this year will have a major impact on the process for immigrants. As a result, it is vital to check the latest process and procedure before applying.
