Prudent Law Will Help You Maneuver Complex Legal Processes
The immigration process in Canada is diverse and intricate and requires applicants to deal with several legal hurdles. Meeting all the necessary requirements can be a daunting task for someone with no experience with the process. Our immigration lawyers at Prudent Law possess a wealth of knowledge of the immigration process. They will provide invaluable guidance and ensure that you understand what is expected of you.
You can immigrate to Canada through many streams. Each immigration program is unique, and selecting the best option is challenging and time-consuming. A lawyer will assess your eligibility for different programs and recommend the most suitable for your situation. Going it alone may not be the best option, especially if your case is complicated or the Canadian immigration service has denied you entry before. A lawyer can make your chances for a successful immigration higher. Our lawyers will also suggest ways of improving your application to increase your likelihood of being approved.
The Different Immigration Streams into Canada
Canada offers many opportunities for growth and development. However, navigating the numerous immigration options is not easy. Seeking the right support goes a long way in making the immigration process simple. The legal team at Prudent Law will provide the guidance you need to navigate the system successfully. Our lawyers are well-versed with the Canadian immigration law and can help you with the following immigration pathways:
Express Entry is the quickest way of getting permanent residency in Canada. However, to get into this program, you must be a highly skilled person. This stream is point-based, whereby you are scored based on your education, qualifications, skills, and experience. The streams with this pathway include:
- Federal Skilled Worker Program – For this stream, the applicant must have at least ten years of work experience in professional jobs, managerial jobs, and technical or skilled trades.
- Federal Skilled Trades Program – You must have experience in a skilled trade to apply for this stream.
The Express Entry program is highly competitive. Working with an experienced immigration lawyer speeds up the process. The process can be delayed if you submit an incomplete application. A lawyer with expertise ensures that the application is filled correctly the first time.
Studying in Canada is also a pathway to immigrate to Canada. Many international students decide to permanently reside in Canada after completing their studies. International students can explore the many pathways available to them to enable them to transition into Canadian permanent residence status. The only drawback is that most immigration programs require skilled work experience. Students can apply for a post-graduation work permit that allows them to work in Canada and gain experience. Other pathways to permanent residency that international students can explore are:
- Canadian Experience Class
- Quebec Immigration Options
- Provincial Nominee Programs
- Federal Skilled Worker Program
Family Sponsorship Programs
The Canadian immigration policy supports family reunification. Every year, the country welcomes thousands of immigrants and families through this program. Canadian citizens or those who are permanent residents can sponsor their relatives to relocate and live in Canada permanently.
Here are the four common family law sponsorship assistance programs:
- Spousal and Common-law Partner sponsorship
- Dependent child sponsorship
- Orphaned family members and siblings’ sponsorship
- Parents’ and Grandparents’ sponsorship
Before a Canadian employer can hire a foreign worker, the employer must first obtain a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). Sometimes called a confirmation letter, a positive LMIA serves as proof that the employer has tried to fill the position with a permanent resident or Canadian citizen but failed. Therefore, they have to hire a foreign worker.
When a foreign worker is applying for a work permit, they attach a copy of a positive LMIA, though there are some exceptions. Below are the common types of work permits:
- Closed work permits
- Open work permits
- Closed work permits that are LMIA-exempt
Most types of work permits are closed work permits that require an LMIA. With a closed work permit, a foreign worker works for a particular employer in a defined region.
With an open work permit, a foreign worker can work for any employer, in any position, and any location. You don’t require a job offer before you apply for an open work permit because it does not need an LMIA.
Anyone who is not a Canadian citizen, a permanent resident, or from a visa-exempt country needs a visitor visa to enter Canada. There are three main types of visitor visas in Canada:
- A Single Entry Visa – With this visa, you can only enter Canada for one time.
- Multiple Entry Visa – This visa allows you to enter and stay in Canada for up to six months at a time for as many times as you like.
- Super Visa – This visa also allows you to enter Canada multiple times, and you can stay for up to two years per visit.
