Canada Will Welcome 350,000 Immigrants in 2021 | Evelyn Ackah | Immigration Lawyer

The Canadian government announced increased annual immigration admissions and Canada will welcome 350,000 immigrants in 2021, primarily via economic immigration programs to address skills shortages and gaps in the labour market.

Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen discussed Canada’s three-year immigration plan in the announcement on October 31, 2018, and said that “economic immigration is badly needed in areas across the country that are short on workers and long on older residents:”

This plan is making us very competitive in the global market. It enables us to continue to be competitive, it enables us to continue to present Canada as a welcoming country and to position us to continue to be (a leader) in skills attraction.

Immigration lawyer Evelyn Ackah says Canada needs more qualified workers to move to Canada and help grow our economy:

This plan is to make us very competitive in the global market. It enables us to continue to be competitive and to present Canada as a welcoming country for skilled professionals. If you want to move to Canada, apply now as a temporary foreign worker via Canada’s Global Talent Stream, which promises a 2-week fast-track for qualified applicants, then look at your options to become a permanent resident.

What is Spousal Sponsorship?

The Family Class Application (Spousal Sponsorship path) is a way for a permanent resident or citizen of Canada to sponsor their spouse or common-law partner (including same-sex partner) to immigrate to Canada and become a permanent resident. Canada strongly supports family reunification and keeping families together whenever possible. The processing of Family Class applications is given a high priority by IRCC.

Per Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) family sponsorship regulations, you can sponsor a spouse or partner to become a permanent resident of Canada if:

  • You are a Canadian citizen, registered in Canada as an Indian, or a permanent resident of Canada
  • You’re 18 years old or older
  • You live in Canada
  • You can prove you have enough income to provide basic needs for your spouse or partner’s dependent children.
  • You are not disqualified to sponsor a spouse by IRCC.

Per IRCC the requirements to be sponsored are:

  • The sponsored person must be at least 18 years of age.
  • The relationship with the sponsor must be real, and not just to become a permanent resident of Canada.

How to Sponsor Your Spouse to Move to Canada

This application to move to Canada to be with your spouse or partner has the best chance to be successful with the help of a knowledgeable and experienced immigration professional. They can help you to understand any points of confusion or overcome any issues that may pose a challenge to the application process. You can find the application packages at the IRCC web pages for spouses in Canada and those outside of the country. The Canadian government investigates allegations of marriage fraud and convenience for immigration reasons, which is a crime in Canada.

To qualify for a visa to move to Canada through the spousal sponsorship immigration program, the sponsor and sponsored person must prove that their relationship qualifies under one of three categories:

  • Spouse
  • Common-law Partner
  • Conjugal Partner

NOTE: Canada recognizes same-sex marriage, and same-sex partners may be eligible to apply under any of the above three categories, provided they meet all eligibility requirements.

Step 1 – You must then apply to serve as a sponsor. This is a two-stage process that begins with your application to the Case Processing Center (CPC).

  • There is an application for spouses already living in Canada (Inland Sponsorship) as well as a separate application for spouses living outside of the country (Outland Sponsorship).
  • Those who are applying outside of Canada will have to wait for the CPC to send the application to the nearest Canadian visa office for processing.

Step 2 – Your spouse or partner must also submit an application for permanent residence.

Any eligible spouses or partners in Canada who are applying to become a permanent resident through sponsorship of their spouse are permitted to work while they wait for the processing to be completed. The IRCC issues “open work permits” to those who have applied for permanent residency from within Canadian borders.

IRCC will process the majority of complete applications (meaning, those with all the necessary supporting documents) within one year.

What is Express Entry?

Express Entry is Canada’s skilled-worker immigration application system, launched in January 2015, to attract high-skilled foreign workers and former international students who want to become a Canadian permanent resident and whose in-demand skills are needed by employers across the country.

Ackah Business Immigration Law offers Express Entry – Permanent Residence Services: 

Express Entry Application Process

Step 1 – Potential Candidates must complete an  Express Entry Profile

Step 2 – The highest-ranking candidates in the pool will be invited to apply for Permanent Residence

Candidates will be ranked against others in the pool using a point-based system called the Comprehensive Ranking System – CRS. Points are awarded using the information in their profile.

Candidates with the highest scores in the pool will be issued an Invitation to Apply. Candidates will be awarded points for:

  • a job offer, with or without LMIA, or
  • skills and experience factors.

A candidate can get additional points for:

  • a nomination by a province or territory, or
  • a Canadian degree, diploma or certificate

A candidate can get further additional points for:

  • having strong French language skills, with more additional points going to candidates who also have English language skills, or
  • having siblings in Canada

These additional points will make a candidate rank high enough to be invited to apply at the next eligible round of invitations.

If someone is invited to apply, they have 60 days to submit an application for Permanent Residence.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada will process the majority of complete applications (meaning, those with all the necessary supporting documents) in six months or less.

Candidates can stay in the pool for up to 12 months. If they do not get an Invitation to Apply for permanent residence within 12 months of submitting an Express Entry profile, they may submit a new profile. If they still meet the criteria, they can re-enter the pool. This will prevent backlogs and ensure quick processing times.
