Recent studies say that about 100,000 people migrated to Canada from india in 2021. This number seems to be ever -increasing in coming times because indian students find Canada the best place to study due to its world-class education system. While Canada’s neighboring nation, the United States of America have very strict rules & policies when it comes to the Migration or immigration, Canada welcomes new immigrants with open arms. Let’s look at various options Indian have for immigration to Canada.

Let’s have a look at how you can move to Canada from India:

  • Express Entry – Federal Skilled Worker: Federal Skilled Worker stream is a competitive migration system that is based on the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). Under this migration stream, an Invitation to Apply (ITA) is issued to the most competitive migrants and this is a Points- based system. You require to have at least one-year of skilled work experience in the occupation that you have nominated to migrate to Canada. Apart from this, you'll need to get your education assessed and have the requisite language skills. Indian citizens received more than half of all invites through Express Entry in 2021, primarily through the Federal Skilled Worker stream.

  2. Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs): This migration program caters to people who:
  • who want to live in a certain province or region 
  • who possess the skills, education, and work experience necessary to contribute to that province or region's economy
  • who wish to be Permanent Residents of Canada

All provinces and territories have their own "streams" (Immigration policies that focus on particular demographics) and specifications. As an illustration, provinces, and territories may focus on:

  • Students
  • Persons in business
  • Skilled-personnel
  • Semi-skilled personnel  

in that case, PNPs are a popular choice since they can provide applicants who don't have enough CRS points to qualify for an Invitation to Apply (ITA) with the quickest route to Canadian permanent residency.

A significant part of economic immigration to Canada from india comes through Provincial Nominee Programs. About 80,800 of the 232,500 economic immigrants targeted for 2021, were set aside for individuals submitting applications through a Provincial Nominee Program. In fact, compared to 2020, Canada granted three times as many invites in Express Entry drawings specifically for the PNP in 2021.

You must follow the steps and get in touch with the province or territory directly to be nominated by any of the following:

  1. Alberta
  2. British Columbia
  3. Manitoba
  4. New Brunswick
  5. Northwest Territories 
  6. Newfoundland and Labrador
  7. Nova Scotia
  8. Ontario
  9. Prince Edward Island
  10. Saskatchewan
  11. Yukon

The criteria for migration differ by province and territory and are subject to revision without notice.

  1. Family Sponsorship: You can be sponsored to live, study, or work in Canada by a relative if you are at least 18 years old and your relative:
  • Is a permanent resident of Canada
  • Is a Canadian Citizen
  • Is a person registered in Canada as an Indian under the Canadian Indian Act,

Citizens and permanent residents of Canada can also sponsor their parents, grandparents, spouses, or common-law partners.

  1. Study in Canada: A large number of Indian nationals are choosing Canada over the United States as their study destination. One of the reasons for this change is innumerable work opportunities available for students in Canada during and after their studies. International students after completing their education can also apply for Post-Graduation Work Permit which can later become a pathway for migrating to Canada for Indian students. With this permit, foreign graduates can work anywhere in Canada and acquire the essential job experience required later on for applying for permanent residency. So, there are plenty of ways for international Indian students to permanently migrate to Canada post studies.

  3. Quebec-selected Skilled Workers - Quebec and the Canadian Government have a unique immigration pact. The province has its own guidelines for selecting migrants who will adapt well to life there.

As a skilled worker chosen by Quebec, you must apply in one of the following two stages:

  • For a Quebec Selection Certificate (Certificat de sélection du Québec [CSQ]), submit an application to the Quebec government.
  • You will be judged by the Province of Quebec according to its regulations.
  • The certificate demonstrates that you have been granted immigrant status by the Province of Quebec.
  • You must submit a permanent residency application to Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada if the Province of Quebec selects you and issues you a CSQ.

These guidelines are exclusively applicable to your application for permanent residency.

  1. Work Permits / Intra-Company Transfers: Some people from India may be qualified for a work permit to Canada. An employment offer is frequently necessary to obtain a work permit.

Canadian work permits fall into two basic categories: the International Mobility Program (IMP) and the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) (IMP).

The TFWP requires the Canadian employer to get what is referred to as a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA), which is the primary distinction between it and the IMP. The LMIA procedure, to put it simply, is a technique to demonstrate that employing a foreign worker will have a neutral or favorable impact on the Canadian labor market.

The Intra-Company Transfer is one instance of an IMP program. Key employees in specific positions who want to relocate from their branch in India to a location in Canada can do so under this program. You might be able to transfer to a Canadian office without a lot of paperwork if your employer is a part of a multinational corporation having offices there!

Therefore, to permanently migrate to Canada from india, Indian nationals have a variety of migration options. In fact, in 2021, Indian nationals made up close to one-third of all new permanent residents in Canada. You just need to go through a few of the above choices!
