Through its two-tier immigration system, Canada allows foreign nationals to gain their permanent residency through the federal Express Entry system’s Federal Skilled Worker (FSW) program, Federal Skilled Trades (FST) program and Canadian Experience Class (CEC), as well as the Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP) of the 10 Canadian provinces.
Under the Express Entry system, immigrants can apply for permanent residency online and their profiles then are ranked against each other according to a points-based system called the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). The highest-ranked candidates will be considered for an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence. Those receiving an ITA must quickly submit a full application and pay processing fees, within a delay of 60 days.
Through a network of PNPs, almost all of Canada’s ten provinces and three territories can also nominate skilled worker candidates for admission to Canada when they have the specific skills required by local economies. Successful candidates who receive a provincial or territorial nomination can then apply for Canadian permanent residence through federal immigration authorities.
Canada also leads the English-speaking western countries as a destination for international study although the United States and Germany are catching up.
In its Top Trends in International Education for 2024 and Beyond report, the Canadian educational technology company, reveals ApplyBoard highlighted Canada’s enviable position as a favourite destination for international study late last year.
Canada Also A Top Destination For International Students
“Canada processed nearly 740,000 student visa applications in 2022, shattering the previous year’s record by 34 per cent … (and) 2023 is also poised for yet another all-time high,” notes the report.
“Canada processed more than 660,000 applications through the first nine months of the calendar year.”
The United States, though, is seeing massive growth in its international student population with more than 630,000 F-1 visa applications processed during 2022 fiscal year, a 42 per cent increase over the previous year.
Immigration Minister Marc Miller is bullish on improving programs to help international students study in Canada.
“International students are talented, bright and deserving of a positive experience as they pursue their studies in Canada,” he said.
“We will continue to improve Canada’s International Student Program by protecting students and weeding out those who try to take advantage of them. Whether an international student stays and works after graduation or returns home, we want their time as a student in Canada to have been beneficial to their growth and aspirations.
