Canada immigration

There’s no doubt about it: Canada immigration is a Big Step. Since the late 15th century when English and French explorers first stepped into this truly massive country (…the second largest on the entire planet…), waves upon waves of immigrants have landed on her shores, decided that this should be their home, then gone out and made it theirs.


Today, Canada immigration is still seen by many as the ‘Last Great Wilderness’ (…though a few other countries may make claim to this, but quite frankly, we think they’re just plain wrong…), and many hundreds of thousands of hopefuls still land on her shores in search of A Better Life. Or in some cases, just ‘A Life’.

For many people, who through no fault of their own have been persecuted, tortured, imprisoned, beaten and had their close family members ‘disappear’, Canada offers a refuge, a new way life where they can start again, thrive and survive and live The Canadian Dream.

So, how do you go about achieving this dream?

The first step towards Canada immigration may be to successfully apply for a Canadian Work Permit.  If you can’t secure a job offer leading to a work permit, you may consider skilled worker immigration to Canada.

The main point of reference for skilled worker immigration is to look on the Canadian Occupation Classification list. This is a list of 29 different job titles that the Canadian government is keen to recruit into. This list is very varied, from cooks and chefs to registered nurses to health care manager to plumbers and pipefitting contractors.

Another way might be to register for Canadian immigration by way of self-employment. Now, the government don’t expect you to have already set your business up before you immigrate; you merely need to say that you intend to set up as being self-employed.

A word skilled worker immigration:you have to prove that you have at least one year’s experience in your chosen field, or pro-rata if you were part-time. You can’t just look down the list and think ‘Oh, I want to be a plumber!’ with no experience in it whatsoever!  Canadian immigration are quite strict in that they will need to see proof of working at and being paid for working in your occupation.

Finally, before thinking of Canadian immigration, you must speak the language! Canada has two official languages, namely English and French. You have to be able to converse in and read and write in either of these, and there is a written or verbal test before you can even think about applying for a visa. A note too about Québec: If you’re seriously thinking that Québec is your chosen destination, then you need to learn and be completely fluent in French. Over 80% of the population use it as their first language.

So, here’s wishing you all the best! It may seem completely daunting and impossible, but with effort and persistence, you can do it, and it may well be the best decision you ever took in your life. 10,000 people a year can’t be wrong!
