Express entry 

In 2015 Canada decided that a more efficient way to allow immigrants into the country is by evaluating and checking the qualifications they have to make a more successful and sophisticated Canada. Every province in Canada has their own type of evaluating system that will be put into action when applied to. 

The Canadian express entry system works as a leveling system and takes into account all education and services that can  that you have put into your profile when applying. The following are what will be evaluated and ranked on importance:

  • Age 

  • Level of education 

  • Official language Advancement 

  • Canadian work experience  

  • Skills 

  • Type of education  

  • Work experience  

  • Second language 

PR Card

To cover the what you need to know when owning a permanent residence card; when to re-enter Canada, you must show your PR card (permanent resident card). 

 How to get a permanent resident card when one applies for permanent residency when you arrive to Canada within 180days a card should be sent to the mailing address of your residency in Canada. If you do not receive the card within 180 days please apply for a new PR card. When a PR card is going to expire please apply for a new one 92 days before the date so that it is more efficient.  

Apply for a new PR card if the following apply to you:

  • Card has been lost, stolen, or damaged 

  • Your name has legally been changed  

  • A mistake has been made on the card that legally does not allow you to enter the country

Permanent Residency

Sponsorship being one of the most common cases that we deal with here at Canada Nordic we usually get questions regarding certain standards of living or what they may need to be a sponsor, below are key points for being a sponsor:

  • 22 years of age 

  • Own a Canadian citizenship or permanent residency

  • Spouses 

  • common-law partners  

  • Along with conjugal partners. As for children 10 years of sponsorship and 20 for grandparents and parents. 

Following that all qualifications are met the sponsorship is then requested to the Canadian immigration authorities. From here the request will be ran through procedure leading to permanent residency status for the family member.  

There are no minimal income demands but the sponsor must show for an acceptable income flow to support family and spouses and maintain once the family enters Canada. The sponsor must also be able to maintain an acceptable income flow and aid for the family without depending on government provided services. 

When applying or deciding to come to Canada remember that you are applying to better yourself and Canada as well for whatever purpose you chose, let it be for work, studying or even visiting Canada is here to give u a home but one must also be able to give back to the community book a consultation so that we can find out what Canada can do for you and what you can do for Canada
