canada immigration consultants in Bangalore

The shocking and hilarious truth about Immigration consultants in India, that most of us Indians are not aware of is that, if you check the number of Immigration agents / companies / consultants in India, you would be astonished to find that India boasts of about 50 times the actual number consultants registered with either ICCRC (The Canadian licensing body) or MARA (Australian licensing body)

Immigrate to Canada From India

But the truth is that these unlicensed agencies are thriving as neither ICCRC nor MARA currently have jurisdiction outside their home countries. Hence, time and again innocent Indians are being misled and exploited by these ghost consultants who are not subject to regulation by either of these regulatory bodies.

If you go to the ICCRC website and check the number of registered consultants operating in India you can clearly see that there is only a handful in the entire nation.

Though every big banner in the Immigration fraternity claims affiliation, the reality is 98% aren’t! The reason being ICCRC consultants would charge higher for every file and consultation which the agencies obviously don’t want to bear. The naïve commoner just does not realize that he is paying someone who knows nothing more than a few hours of study on google he can teach himself.

We have 2 ICCRC registered consultants amongst whom two are lawyers and the third on board is an Ex Indian Army officer who has studied Immigration Law from Ashton college British Columbia. We can out rightly challenge anyone in India about the quality and legitimacy of our services.

In case you want to compare us with another agency which also has ICCRC consultants or lawyer we would want to state a unique trait of ours. In all the agencies usually the lawyers just overlook the entire process and only involved if there is a complication, their team handles your paperwork. With Novus Immigration services, every single document and filing would be done personally by a lawyer /ICCRC consultant and they would contact you directly without any involvement of a third person. NOW WHERE COULD YOU FIND SUCH LEVELS OF PROFESSIONALISM AND EXCELLENCE?

HENCE WE MAKE THE CLAIM “IF ANYONE FINDS THE SERVICE THAT WE PROVIDE AT OUR COST WE WOULD GIVE THE SAME FREE OF COST”. It is not possible for another company to do the same as it turns out to be very expensive to hire so many lawyers and registered consultants. We can afford it as we are the directors of the company. At one point of time there is one director at least in India for upfront consultation.



Generally, an individual's status in Canada falls into one of the four categories: Temporary resident, Permanent resident, Convention Refugee or Citizen. Each status possesses its own set of laws, policies and procedures.

The various immigration processes are divided into 2 broad categories: Temporary resident status and permanent resident status. Briefly, a temporary resident status may be granted to a foreign national who would like to temporarily visit, work or study in Canada for a limited time. Whereas on the other hand a foreign national who wishes to permanently settle in Canada will have to submit an application for permanent residency status. It is true that sometimes the programs under temporary resident schemes could benefit in gaining additional points for the pathway to achieving PR status.

Canada’s Immigration management scheme is created by the IRPA, which was passed into law in 2001 and came into force on June 28,2002 replacing the Immigration Act of 1976. The various programs can be broadly classified as:

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.

Key benefits of Canadian Permanent Residency
  • The foremost reason why people want to migrate to Canada is because there aren’t any other countries except Australia which is giving across a direct PR to foreign nationals and as a well-established economy coupled with the state of the art Infrastructure, Job market, Educational opportunities, free education till the 12th grade and various other perks like old age pension etc.

  • What one needs to know about the PR status is that, one has to only stay put for 3 years cumulatively not at a stretch, but in a block of 5 years to meet the residency obligations of Canada. This means that you can manage your work in India simultaneously or even given time for other priorities in life at your native.

  • Apart from the free education for kids which we see is a big expenditure saved, the job market is the same as any other job market except for the fact that there is no discrimination based on nationality, sex, religion, ethnicity etc. It is a very fair market and everyone gets their due.

  • If it’s for a family, the advantage is that even if one of the two has a high skilled profile the entire family gets a PR. It is also advisable for a couple to have their resumes on the major job portals so that they could land there and start working immediately. Canada provides state-funded healthcare facilities that lets people from all walks of life to have access to quality healthcare without worrying about paying huge receipts. The basic healthcare is completely free of cost for PRs and citizens. Old Age Security, Guaranteed Income Supplement, and the Canada Pension Plan programs are designed to provide financial support to workers after their retirement.

  • The best thing we would vouch for, is the Safety and Security that is prevalent all through the provinces and cities. One doesn’t have to worry about their personal and property safety as the security agencies are very well equipped and there are hardly any criminal cases / safety concerns reported in the residential blocks. The constitutional rules are strict and same for everyone.

  • Another praiseworthy service is the affordable finance rates for housing and other requirements. Mostly immigrants usually can afford to relocate into their own house in 2 to 3 years’ time after arriving in Canada. The loans are easy to process and the interest rates are way lower than in India.

  • You feel like you are at home as there are a lot of Indians you would find in any neighborhood you go to. The natural beauty and serenity is something that would far outreach any other nation. Canada is blessed with beautiful and diverse flora and fauna. The air is so clean that one can forget about breathing problems. Canada has also been voted as the best place to live and work in by The United Nations. Canada has lots to offer to its residents and is considered one of the top countries to provide high quality of life.

Frequently Asked Questions


1. Who Is Eligible For Express Entry?

Canada has used a point based system to assess independent immigrants since the Immigration Act of 1976.In 2013, there were major changes to the point system of the Canada Immigration System. The six selection factors for federal skilled workers, as set out in sections 76 and 78 to 83 of the IRPR for Canada immigration are as follows:

  • Education
  • Language proficiency (English & French)
  • Work experience
  • Age
  • Arranged employment
  • Adaptability
  • Points are allocated to the principal applicant with a view to selecting applicants who possess attributes that will lead to their becoming economically established.

2. How Much Score Do I Need To Make It Through The Express Entry Program?

The chances of an applicant making it through depends on his CRS score, in the last one year (2018 & 2019) the Canada immigration point scores haven’t gone below 438 points. Therefore, it is advisable to try achieving a CRS of about 430 to 440 at least if you are looking for an opportunity to migrate to Canada through the Express entry system.

3. How Can One Get Selected For The PNP Programs?

Each province and territory has different immigration categories or processing streams for a foreign national to submit an application for Canadian permanent resident status. For example: many provinces in Canada have an investor, entrepreneur or student category even though such programs do not exist at the Federal level. Such programs allow the provinces to attract new immigrants that have the precise skills, work experience, and knowledge required to cater for the local Canadian labor market needs.

Once could choose any of the provinces in Canada he is interested in migrating to, while creating his express entry profile. It is possible to directly apply for a nomination under a specific stream, rather than passively awaiting a “Notification of Interest” from one of the Canadian provinces. It is very important to target the appropriate Canadian province and program depending on the requirement patterns of the provinces and your adaptability in terms of family or relation in any of the provinces.

Anyone who gets a nomination certificate from a Canada PNP would be granted enough points under the Express Entry System (CRS) that you will very likely receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) in the next draw.

What applicants are not aware of is that, the chances of one making it through the PNP doesn’t have anything to do with his CRS scores, there are a number of our clients who have nearly 430 points and they have been in the pool for a while now. Furthermore, we have clients who have scores about 33to 350 CRS range and they have received a nomination. We have noticed that many agencies promise to push the applicants profile to provinces and tell them that they shall get you a nomination but in vain. Whereas qualified ICCRC representatives have a thorough understanding of the patterns of job profile provinces might be interested in and accordingly place the EoI when the draw opens.

The straight forward answer being there is no quick fix to get a nomination. It completely depends on the applicant’s profile and the specific requirements of each Canadian province.

4. Is IELTS Mandatory To Apply For A PR Status In Canada?

Mostly yes, federal skilled worker class /federal skilled trade class /Canadian experience class/Home care giver class /Business investor class /provincial nominee program, all these pathways to permanent residency requires a basic eligibility language scores which is different for every stream.

Unless it’s through a PGP, spousal sponsorship, adoption, refugee turned PR almost all the major doors leading to a direct PR status has a pre-requisite of minimum language scores for migrating to Canada.

5. How To Improve CRS Scores?

Most frequently asked question related to Canadian Immigration. It’s pretty simple. I shall give you the cheat codes:

  • Language: A marginal increase of ( .5) in one of the four sections in IELTS would increase your CRS by 57 points.
  • Education: A master’s degree accredited by one of the Accreditation boards validated by CIC would fetch you an extra 40 points in your total CRS score.
  • Work Experience: Advisable to apply when you have documentation to prove that you 3 plus years of experience in the same designation (could be different employers). Even one year less would reduce your points by 25 points in your CRS score.
  • Arranged employment letter: Job offer in the O level skill type NOC code would fetch you 200 points and the others 50points.

Our sincere advice to you is please don’t pay up to the Immigration agents who promise you a PR without adequate CRS scores. There is no magic wand with them to get you a PR invitation. Understand the system thoroughly, for assistance go to an ICCRC regulated and licensed professional.

6. How To Get An Open Work Permit For Canada Immigration?

In some cases, an open work permit may be available. An open work permit has the advantage of not being job specific: thus a foreign national with an open work permit may work for any Canadian employer without first having to obtain a positive LMIA or a formal job offer.

The following persons are some of those who may be eligible to apply for an open work permit:

  • Persons who are already in Canada and whose applications for permanent residence have received a positive eligibility assessment under one of the following:
    • 1. Federal skilled worker program
    • 2. Canadian Experience class
    • 3. Provincial nominee program
    • 4. Federal skilled trades program or
    • 5. Humanitarian & compassionate grounds.
  • Family members of persons who applications for permanent residence have been approved under one of the programs above.
  • Members of the spouse or common law partner in Canada class.
  • Spouses or family of foreign representatives & family of military representatives.
  • Spouses of foreign students at public post-secondary schools.
  • Spouses of work permit holders who have received a nomination certificate from a province or territory in support of permanent residence application.
  • Refugees whose claims have been approved.
  • International students who have graduated from a Canadian post-secondary institution.

7. How To Get A Job In Canada?

To make it very simple there are not many options for a foreign national to bag a job sitting here in India. The lucky ones could probably try for a

  • 1. Internal Relocation through their current employer if the same company has a well-established presence in Canada. If you are lucky enough to stay in the job for more than a year’s period, then you could try applying for a PR through the Canadian Experience class stream.
  • Applying online via all the prominent job portals would be a 95% futile attempt. The reason being a Canadian Employer wouldn’t want to invest in a foreign national when there is enough talent available in Canada. Furthermore, even if your competent and the employer likes profile he would have to get a Positive LMIA from Service Canada or ESDC which has its own limitations. Therefore, the chances of you getting a job sitting in India without a status in Canada are very bleak.

  • 3. The best & simple method
    • Apply for a PR status either through Express Entry or any of the PNPs.
    • Pursue the prospects of getting a work permit, this would only be if there is no scope for you to make it through the Express entry stream and your NOC doesn’t fall in any of the Canadian Province’s projected “On Demand Occupation List “. The purpose of a work permit is inevitably to get you Permanent resident status down the lane.
    • Once you have a PR status in Canada, then it is about connecting the dots, Marketing, Public relations, Networking is very important in a competent labor market to get you the best you deserve.

Why choose Novus Immigration Services?

One of our goals is to educate you and not let you stay misinformed. Have you heard of the “REFUND/MONEY BACK GUARANTEE 100% FANCY SALES QUOTE”?

Especially in all the immigration agencies.

Have you ever wondered how does it work?

Are you aware that no one gets their money back?

So how it works is, the agencies convince the applicants to sign up with them promising them that the cut off scores would reduce or that they would push their profile through one of the PNP programs.

The unaware misguided applicant signs up and pays up. At the end of 1 year the profile expires. All they would do is refile your expression of interest. It doesn’t cost a penny to resubmit it again. What do you lose? Lot of time and hopes drained down the lane. Do you get your money back. would you go at the end of the 2nd year again to ask for the initial deposit? Chances are you would have probably forgotten about this particular pursuit.

Concluding that we don’t need to use such strategies, we only take your application if we are certain that we can make sure you make it, otherwise we would guide you and ask you to come back to us once the requirement is accomplished/ met by you.
