Which immigration programs can I apply for?
It depends on what you are looking for, some of them are looking for a short visit visa, few for study permits and the majority for a permanent residence status. It is comparatively easier to obtain a visitor visa (TRV) , Study permit than a PR status in terms of documentation, processing timelines and other requirements involved.
Every program has its own eligibility and pre requisites. For example, the criteria for a study permit, work permit, visitor visa, etc are all different. The CIC officer analyses every single file individually, it’s not a computerized process wherein one applies and there is a machine generated report that decides the fate of an application. There are numerous reasons for a simple Tourist visa to get rejected, it is important to understand the point of view of the CIC while one submits his application. It is the onus of the applicant to make sure the document checklist specifications has been met and incase of any deviations, the same should be elaborately justified with appropriate reasons.
The most sort after is the Express Entry program as it gives a foreign worker a Permanent Resident status on arrival. But not all qualify for the high cut off CRS scores and hence do not make it through this program. Therefore, some chose the study option to get hold of an Open Work Permit so that it would help them in gaining additional points and becoming eligible for the CEC (Canadian Experience class) program which is one of the 3 programs under FSW (Federal Skilled Worker).
There is also the sponsorship program for spouse, children, parents and grandparents. The list of persons who may be sponsored is covered comprehensively in section 117 of the Immigration and Refugee protection regulations. To be able to sponsor a person for permanent residence the Sponsor should be eligible for sponsoring and should meet certain eligibility criteria. Every program is tailor made for a very specific class, profile, age group and occasion. The approval of any of the above mentioned applications solely lies in the discretion of the invigilating processing CIC officer.
