5 Easiest Ways to Immigrate to Canada
1. Express Entry Program
Canadian Immigration Program that allows immigrants to live and work in Canada as a skilled worker through Express Entry. The new system will allow Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) to pro-actively verify, recruit and select immigrants who’re professional and/or possessed the applicable qualifications below federal financial immigration programs:
- Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)
- The Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)
- The Canadian Experience Class (CEC)
The Express Entry program will also allow individual provinces and territories to use the system in order to recruit suitable candidates as part of the Provincial Nominee Programs so that labour market demands are met.
2. Family Class Sponsorship
Family Reunification remains a corner-stone of Canada immigration policy. Families in Canada can sponsor their relatives to come to Canada on a permanent basis. In order to qualify to sponsor your relative, you have to be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident. Also who you can sponsor is: your spouse and children under the age of 22 (there are some exceptions to this). Sponsoring your parents or grandparents is no longer an option at this time. However, you can bring them to Canada under the Super Visa Category.
3. LMIA Work Visa
A lot of applicants for Canadian immigration firstly get Canadian job offers, apply for a work visa and then on that basis, immigrate to Canada. The LMIA involves securing a Canadian job offer, having the Canadian employer apply for an LMIA though Service Canada and then the applicant applying for the work permit after the LMIA is approved. This is a very involved processes but can lead to Canadian permanent residence.
4. Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP)
The PNP route is becoming an increasingly popular way to immigrate to Canada. Canadian provinces such as Alberta, Ontario, British Columbia and others have developed their own immigration programs that often lead to a fast-track process. However, the PNP category generally requires that applicants reside in the respective Provinces after they arrive in Canada. Further, most PNPs require a job offer from a Canadian employer in order to qualify.

5. Canadian Investor Immigration
The Investor Category is designed for high net worth individuals who have owned or managed businesses overseas. By allowing skilled business humans invest inside the Cannadian financial system, they may be contributing to Canada’s average boom and prosperity. There are essentially two investor programs in Canada: The Federal Investor Program and the Quebec program. Both programs are somewhat similar and require that the applicants have a high net worth and make a large investment in an approved investment fund for a 5 year period. Investor immigrants can bring their spouses and children as dependents to their applications.
