  • Canadian Government Announces Immigration Goals For 2014

    The Canadian government recently announced its goals for immigration to Canada in 2014. According to Chris Alexander, who is Canada’s Minister for Citizenship and Immigration, the Canadian government plans to authorize between 240,000 and 265,000 foreign nationals to immigrate to Canada in 2014, of whom 63% (164,500) will be economic immigrants; 26.1% (68,000) will arrive under the family category; and 10.9% (28,400) will immigrate to Canada for humanitarian reasons.


    Canada has become one of the top destinations for people from around the world who are seeking better opportunities in life. For those who want to immigrate to Canada mainly for economic reasons, there are several Canadian immigration programs currently available, such as the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP); Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP); Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP); and Live-in Caregiver Program (LCP). Each of these Canadian immigration programs has its own eligibility criteria and applicants who meet all of the requirements can be issued a Permanent Resident (PR) Visa to Canada.


    A PR Visa to Canada allows a foreign national to live and work long-term in this beautiful country; gives them access to the excellent Canadian education system; permits them to receive free basic healthcare; and provides them with the option to apply for Canadian citizenship in as little as three years. Thus, whether one has a university degree, is a skilled tradesperson or is an experienced live-in caregiver, there are great Canadian employment opportunities in a range of occupations if one is granted a PR Visa to Canada.


    In addition to releasing the overall target numbers for immigration to Canada in 2014, the Canadian government also declared that it intends to increase the number of eligible skilled foreign workers who could be issued a PR Visa to Canada through the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) next year to an all-time high of between 44,500 and 47,000. Under the PNP, qualifying foreign nationals who have the training and work experience that are in high-demand in a particular Canadian province or territory can be granted a PR Visa to Canada and move to that province or territory to seek Canadian employment.


    As Citizenship and Immigration Minister Chris Alexander stated on October 28, 2013, “Canada is in a global competition for the best and brightest immigrants, and this plan is crafted with attracting the people we need for Canada to succeed.” With the Canadian government and businesses actively seeking skilled foreign workers to help keep its strong economy growing, now is one of the best times in history to apply for immigration to Canada!
