Ontario French Speaking Skilled Worker Stream: Am I Eligible?

Ontario French Speaking Skilled Worker Stream: Am I Eligible?

If you are fluent in French and wish to become a Canadian Permanent Resident, you may have more chances to apply for a Permanent Residence through this stream.

This stream is part of the Ontario Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). The province invites skilled workers from the Express Entry (EE) Pool who can demonstrate fluency in both English and French. This stream works only on an invitation basis, which means the only way to apply is by being selected through the Express Entry system.

You will need to comply with all of the other PNP requirements. The provincial nomination will grant the applicant 600 points for their Express Entry profile, assuring an Invitation To Apply (ITA) for permanent residence.

How Does it Work?

If your Express Entry profile is selected by the province, you will receive a Notice of Interest (NOI). You will then have 45 days to submit your application through the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) e-Filing Portal.

If the province accepts your application, you will receive the Provincial Nomination and be able to apply for a new Express Entry draw with an additional 600 points being added to your profile just for the provincial nomination.

  Create an EE Profile.

 Receive an NOI.

  Apply for the OINP.

  Receive the Provincial Nomination.

  Reapply for EE with the Provincial Nomination.

  Receive the ITA.

  Submit the application for the Canadian Permanent Residence.

How to Get a Job Offer From a Canadian Employer

How to Get a Job Offer From a Canadian Employer

One of the easiest and safest ways to immigrate to Canada is to secure a job offer from a Canadian employer.

This means you’ll be able to work in the country since your arrival. Depending on your contract extension and performed job position, you may also be able to apply for Canadian permanent residence.

How to Search for a Canadian Job Offer

  Verify if you can work with your profession in Canada. Research which job positions you apply to related to your education and work experience.

  Find out if your employer needs a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) or if you can apply for a work permit to a job position that is LMIA exempt.

  Search for offers on Canadian job boards. Some employers may be open to sponsoring workers if their companies are in need of specialized staff.

You could also come to Canada as a visitor and get to know potential employers. Try to contact someone in need of a worker with your profile. They will likely be open to sponsoring you.

If your main goal is to apply for permanent residence, you must have a VALID JOB OFFER that meets the following requirements:

  Full-time contract, longer than 12 months.

 The job must be listed as Skill Type 0 or Skill Level A or B in the National Occupational Classification.

Do you already have a Job Offer?

Contact us and we will gladly help you and your employer with the immigration process.

We recommend you always be aware of the following points when searching for job offers from foreign employment agencies:

  False advertisement: Publicity like “Free work permits”, “No experience needed!”, “Faster processing times” is frowned upon. Canadian Government does charge a fee for every application. All work permits require a minimum of one year of experience. Some job positions may even require three to five years of experience.

  Uncertified Consultants: If the firm you contacted is not certified, your applications will not be validated. Choose immigration consultants registered on ICCRC.

  False information: Being asked to submit false information to obtain a work permit will automatically result in the refusal of a work permit.

  Charging for a job offer: Companies are not allowed to charge a fee for giving you a job offer. This is an illegal action, condemned by Canadian jurisdictions. In some cases, these fraudulent companies will guarantee a job offer without even interviewing you first.

Companies are allowed to charge a fee for the immigration process, but just when they are certified immigration companies.

Manitoba Family Support PNP: How Does It Work?

Manitoba Family Support PNP: How Does It Work?

Each Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) is unique. The programs’ conditions vary depending on the needs of the region.

If you are a permanent resident or Canadian citizen living in Manitoba, you can have the opportunity to support a friend’s or relative’s permanent residence application.

If you want to help a family member apply for permanent residence through the Manitoba Family Support PNP under the Skilled Worker Stream, they must prove a strong connection to the province through one of these options:

  You must prove that you are living in Manitoba and willing to support a family member.

  You must have work experience or previous education inside Manitoba.

Manitoba

This is the only program where you can sponsor any family relative, not limited to spouses or children, that can either be:

  Siblings

  Niece or nephew

  Aunt or uncle

  First cousins (children of your aunts or uncles)

Note: this is not a sponsorship program, but you will need to financially support your relative.

As a sponsor, you must also go through a process to determine your eligibility. You must be a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident. You must have been living in Manitoba for at least one year and have a steady job that will allow you to support your family once they are in Canada. It is essential to consider the following:

  You must show close ties to your family member and Manitoba (documentation that supports this claim is required).

  You must show that any previous family member you have supported (if applicable) was able to successfully and permanently establish themselves in Manitoba.

  You must be able to support your family member’s Settlement Plan.

  You must support the application of more than one skilled worker at a time if they are a close relative and can demonstrate the ability to support more than one skilled worker.

Since this program is aimed to attract skilled workers, your family member needs to prove that they are qualified to work in Canada. This means they need to accumulate enough points through the calculation of language skills, employability, age, education, and adaptability factors.

You must also prove that you have enough funds to support your family member while looking for work. At least CAD 12,669 is required, and if dependants are included on the application, additional funds will be needed.

How to Apply?

Expression of Interest

This is the first step to migrate to Manitoba, and it involves submitting a profile to a pool of candidates. Your family member will have to submit their personal information and create a profile.

Your family member’s profile will be ranked in a similar way to the Express Entry System. The highest-ranked candidates will receive a Letter of Advice to Apply. 

This profile will be active for only one year.  If your family member does not receive a Letter of Advice to Apply before the year is over, they will need to create a new profile.

Letter of Advice to Apply

Once your family member receives a letter, they will be able to apply for the PNP and submit all the required documentation.

If your family member is nominated by the province, they can finally submit their permanent residence application. The process can take up to 28 months, considering that permanent residence takes around two years to be processed.

Our team can help determine your family member’s eligibility to obtain permanent residence under this program and can help prepare the application.

Study and Work in Canada at the Same Time

Study and Work in Canada at the Same Time

Getting a Canadian degree is an improvement for anyone’s education, and as a foreigner, this can increase your chances of becoming a Canadian Permanent Resident.

However, you must consider that it requires a monetary investment. You will have to pay for immigration application processes, like a study permit, visa, college or course tuition, and living expenses.

It may seem like too much all at once, but with sacrifice and perseverance, you can finish your education. Once you obtain a Canadian educational certification, it will be easier to get a good job to become a Canadian permanent resident.

How to Apply to Study and Work in Canada? This Is What You Need to Start:

First, you will need to decide where you want to study. Our allied company Studyvantage can help you choose from a wide range of excellent academic options from its partnered learning institutions.

If you are better at French than English, then Quebec, Nova Scotia, or New Brunswick could be better options. If you are better at English, all of the provinces are at your disposition.

After you have chosen the province, you must research the university or institution with the program that best suits you. Read the requirements they ask for, gather your documentation, and then apply. At this stage in the process, it is unnecessary to have any immigration status. You will apply as an international student.

If the institution accepts you, you will receive an acceptance letter. Apart from your passport and the forms required by the Canadian government, an acceptance letter is the most valuable document needed to apply for a study permit.

You will have to apply for a study permit. Depending on the country you are from, you will need a visa or an Electronic Travel Authorization.

Take the time to understand the application process. Read the requirements and steps involved. Make a list of the things that you don’t understand. After some research, if you still have the same questions, contact an Immigration Consultant and book a consultation. Purchasing this kind of service will give you an hour of questions and answers with an expert to help you understand the process and your new status while living in Canada.

If you want full guidance in this process, our allied company, Studyvantage, can assist you.

It is vital to make a budget for your living expenses, considering rent, essential services, food, transportation, and telephone costs. By doing so, you will buy time and have a better overview of real-life living in Canada.

Studying in Canada increases your chances of being eligible for an Express Entry program or obtaining a Canadian employer’s job offer. You could even apply for a Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP).

Your spouse or common-law partner can apply for an open work permit based on your study permit, allowing you to live in Canada together, under a legal status that will concede you both to work.

Think about the future, and start making your life plan. Make decisions that will provide you with incredible long-term benefits.
