Following the recent changes to Australia’s visa system, there are many skilled migrants who are struggling to get Permanent Residency (PR) in Australia. But can immigration to Canada be an option for these applicants?
If you are a skilled worker with the right experience, skills and background, you may be able to make Canada your permanent home through its Express Entry Program.
Like Australia, Canada’s skilled migration program is also a points-based system which is designed to attract highly qualified and experienced professionals to best meet its skills needs.
Following the recent changes to Australia’s visa system, there are many skilled migrants who are struggling to salvage their dream of becoming Australian permanent residents*.
Migration experts believe the ‘visa changes’ have adversely affected the chances of these applicants in the skilled visa categories.
Many applicants who are struggling to meet the desired standards for PR in Australia now aim to move to Canada. But is Canada a viable option for these applicants?
The visa sector has seen huge changes in the last two years. PR aspirants are now extremely distressed about their prospects in Australia and aim to apply for Canada in high hopes.
“We’ve seen an impact due to the changes to the skilled occupation lists and state nomination criteria. Some applicants also had their hopes shattered due to the abolition of 457 visas and more recently, due to an increase in points threshold from 60 to 65 for skilled visas.”
Canada’s skilled migration program is quite similar to Australia.
“There is not much difference in terms of the point system designed for various skill subsets, job experience and the English language capacity of the prospective applicant”
“But there are certain occupations that are in high demand where applicants can or may benefit from Canada’s Express Entry program.
“For example, the transport industry is in a booming stage in Canada so potentially experienced truck drivers should explore this promising opportunity.”
Canada offers Express Entry program for skilled immigrants who want to settle in Canada permanently and take part in its economy.
