  • What can be said about Canada Abroad, which words will be able to describe best the magnitude of thanks we have towards them! Words of gratitude for their professional, upfront, honest, knowledgeable advise and assistance, for their persistence with our profile and their encouragement. I highly recommend Canada Abroad to anyone who has an ambition to make Canada their new home, even though we familiarised ourselves with the entire immigration process, Canada Abroad gave us insights and peace of mind during the entire process, which resulted in our dream coming to pass.

Your most important questions answered

Canada uses multiple points systems to assess prospective immigrants. The most commonly used are the Federal Skilled Worker points system and the Comprehensive Ranking System used by Express Entry applicants.

Each program has its own requirements but typically you will need to prove you are fluent in French/English, have a high school diploma or higher and work experience in a skilled occupation. Some programs may require you to have a job offer, but you can immigrate without a job offer.

Some programs require that you have a certain amount of money available based on your family size. These is called settlement funds. For those applying as a Federal Skilled Worker, you would require a minimum of $ 13,757, which would increase based on your family size. View your required amount here.

The easiest way to immigrate is if you are a dependant child, spouse, parent or grandparent of a Canadian Citizen or Permanent Resident who is over 18. Otherwise, the Federal Skilled Worker program is the easiest way to immigrate to Canada as it does not require a job offer.

You can immigrate to Canada without a job offer depending on your personal background. As Canada uses a points system to assess applicants, only those with a high enough score can successfully immigrate without requiring a job offer. Listen to our podcast to learn more

Unless you are the spouse or dependent child of a Canadian Citizen or Permanent resident who is over 18, the fastest way to immigrate to Canada is via the Express Entry system

Canada does not have a set list of specific occupations that they are looking for. They are looking for those with experience in management positions, occupations usually requiring university education and occupations that usually require college education, specialized training or apprenticeship training.

Currently Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario, Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia are the easiest Provinces to immigrate to as they do not require a job offer. They each have their own requirements which you can read here

First, find out if you qualify. Then, pick the best program for you. If required, write your required language test. You will then need to begin gathering your supporting documents in order to submit your application.

The ability to immigrate to Canada is based on a variety of factors including age, level of completed education, skilled work experience, language proficiency and current and past connections to Canada. To see if you meet the requirements, complete our free assessment today.
