Canada offers a wide range of visas and immigration programs for foreign nationals looking to move, study, or travel to the country. It’s important to find the program that best suits your needs. The Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) is a popular option for those who know which province they want to move to. Each province has its own list of in-demand occupations, and candidates are chosen based on the province’s labor and immigration needs. There are two ways to apply for a nomination: directly to the province or through the Express Entry system, which is the quicker option.
If you’re looking to earn a globally-recognized qualification and potentially work and immigrate to Canada, obtaining a Study Permit may be the way to go. You need to enroll at a Designated Learning Institute with an approved COVID-19 readiness plan and provide an acceptance letter, passport or travel document, and proof of funds. The waiting time for a Canadian student visa is typically around 16 weeks, but some countries participating in the Student Direct Stream can receive permits in as little as 20 calendar days.
