(Last Updated On: May 18, 2020)

This post lists all the best and easiest possible ways to Immigrate to Canada and get a Canadian PR in 2020. Over the past few years, the process for Canadian Immigration has been really streamlined and most of the times its just a matter of choosing the right category/stream to apply in.

Canada has opened its doors really wide open since early 2017 and there are many ways to make Canada as your new home as of 2020. While this sounds exciting at first, it also confuses people on which stream to apply and whats the path to PR in that particular stream. With that said, there is no better time for aspirants looking to Immigrate to Canada, lets quickly take a look at each of the Canadian immigration streams and their prospects in the following post:

Agri-Food pilot Canada is the most recently launched immigration category in 2020

Bow Lake, Banff National Park, Alberta Canada

1. Express Entry

Express Entry is one of the most popular immigration streams amongst skilled migrants. It started off in 2015 and has been source of growing skilled immigrants for the Canadian Govt.

Canada’s Express Entry is a point based system where candidates are ranked on pre-decided set of parameters which ultimately converge to a final score. Candidates are then invited based on their score in Express Entry Pool.

Who Can Apply?

  • Anyone having a undergraduate (or Bachelor’s), graduate (or Master’s) or post graduate (or PhD) degree can apply. The higher the degree, more the points.
  • At least 2 years (within last 5 years) of Canadian or foreign experience in a skilled trade under key groups of NOC B (Federal Skilled Trades Program).
  • If you have 1 year (within last 3 years) Canadian Experience in NOC 0, A, B (Canadian Experience Class), then you get more points.
  • Candidates aged below 29 gets more points, 5 points are deducted per year of age after that.

Note: A full time job offer letter with positive LMIA from eligible Canadian employer will add substansial points to candidate application. Thus, candidates with skills in demand are advised to reach out to prospective employers first.

Processing time: Varies with country(though 6-8 months is a good estimate)

Fees: $1040 per person

Path to Citizenship: Almost certain. Since you get a PR after you get invited and approved in express entry, you become a Canadian citizen after living 3 out of past 5 years of Canada.

2. Provincial Nomination Programs (PNP)

Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP) allow Canadian territories and provinces to nominate individuals who wish to immigrate to Canada. Those candidates are also interested in settling in a particular province. Every Provincial Nomination Program has at least one immigration category that is aligned with the Federal CIC Express Entry immigration process.

Every Canadian province, except Québec and Nunavut territory has its own unique PNP. By Canadian Law, Québec can select its own immigrants who want to settle in the province. However, immigrants have to meet certain Federal requirements to be admitted to Canada. Refer to Immigration to Quebec for more information.

To be nominated by a province or territory, one must follow the instructions on their website and contact them directly:

    • try to improve your score to 400+, also see if your spouse’s application can get more points. The immigration load is pretty high at the moment. Also, see if you want to evaluate if you would get advantage of moving to Canada or you would be better off in India. It would take significant effort to first get a PR at your age and then quite some effort to settle down here.

    • Stay in OINP or in BC pools. Those are the best provinces for IT sector. However, if you are earning well as most of people in Indian IT do, I will recommend you to reconsider your decision moving to Canada as the incremental value you get by moving here might not be worth the settlement chaos you will face at your age.

    • If you have a IT experience, you should can hope for Ontario or BC though below the score of 400(you will probably lie below 400 because of age factor) makes it difficult but who knows.

  • Thanks for the quick reply. I’m a Business Major and an Accountant and I am looking into MBA or similar finance related post-graduate studies. I figure the student route might be simpler vs the Express Entry considering that I’ve had 7 or so employers over the past 20 yrs, some of which have since merged with other companies, so the documentary requirements might prove to be a challenge.

    • At this age and experience, MBA/executive MBA makes the most sense. Also, you will need strong university admit to prove your case. This would mean appearing for something like GMAT alongside IELTS. Also please note that MBA from good university is really expensive in Canada.

  • Is there an age requirement for student route to PR? Is it plausible for someone 48-50 yrs old intending to take post-graduate studies for example?

    • Theoratically there is no limit but This wont be a valid route at this age of 48, unless its an MBA and your profile really says that MBA will be of help.

    • This is going to be quite challenging through express entry. Do you have any relatives in province like Manitoba ?
