The Canadian government has been selecting an increasing number of Candidates the last four months, which has been lowering the CRS selection score. Â With the CRS score at it’s lower level ever, it is easier to get PR in Canada now that it was been in a very long time.
If you score between 400 and 430, you may be eligible to apply for the OntarioÂ PNP program which opened last week.
Don’t have enough points?Â Studying in Canada is a pathway to obtain PR
Candidates that choose to study in Canada have many options to apply for PR. Â Their spouse can apply for PR through a PNP program after working inÂ a skilled job for 6 months in Manitoba province or 1 year in Alberta, Saskatchewan, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, while their spouse is still in school. Â A student can apply for PR after theyÂ graduate if they have enough points, or they can work forÂ 1 year and apply for PR under a PNP program or Canadian Experience Class.
Additional CRS points are awarded for:
â€¢ Graduating from a Canadian school (15 – 30 points)
â€¢ Having a skilled job in Canada (50Â points)
â€¢ Working in Canada (points are awarded for each year you work in Canada:Â 35 – 80 points)
The financial requirements to study in Canada starts at $16,000Â for 1 person (first year tuition + $10,000 for living expenses), and for each additional family member that accompanies you to Canada,Â you must have an additionalÂ $3,000 per person.Â Â
If you do not have the funds yourself, you can get a letter from a family member stating their intention to support you financially, along with their financial documents.
Candidates who are eager to come to Canada with their family, should consider studying as an option. Â School programs typically start in September and January each year, but there are some programs that start every 2 months. Â Students can come to Canada 1 – 1.5 months before their programÂ starts, and their family can accompany them.
