Skilled Worker/Express Entry
There are a variety of programs available that are dedicated to bringing qualified, skilled workers and those who wish to invest financially in Canadian business. We can help you determine the right program that suits your needs.
In early 2015, the government launched a new active recruitment model known as the “Express Entry” system. This system prioritizes processing for candidates with the education and skills to succeed in Canada.

Canada Experience Class
Temporary foreign workers are eligible to apply in this category. The applicant must have achieved 12 months of skilled work experience within the last 36 months.

Applicants must have the qualifying work and study experience needed at the time the application is made, and effective June 26, 2010, must demonstrate knowledge of English or French by the results of an accredited English language test. Finally, applicants must have been in compliance with regulations, namely not have engaged in unauthorized work or study, not remained in Canada after the time authorized to do so has expired and not been found inadmissible to Canada on grounds such as health or security.

Humanitarian Applications - Section 25
This is truly the last resort for many applicants who would not otherwise be admissible to Canada in other categories. In order for an application to succeed under this section, undue hardship and sufficient compassionate and humanitarian grounds must be demonstrable in the circumstances.
A well prepared application can lead to permanent residence, and we have achieved successful results for many applicants. Call us today.
