Canada is regarded as a multicultural country since Canadians encourage everyone to embrace and respect their cultural history. Canada’s service sector is the country’s largest economic engine, as well as a major exporter of energy, food, and minerals.
Canada has developed a reputation as an incredible place to live and work. Canada was rated #1 in the world for the greatest quality of life for the fifth consecutive year in 2020, and #2 in the world for the best nation overall. Canada is home to immigrants most of which entered the country as students. Canadian immigration law stipulates that international students who want to stay in Canada permanently after they graduate may apply under a specific program while they’re still in Canada, or they may apply thereafter, as long as they meet all other criteria. “Dual intent”, is used to describe the application of Canadian permanent resident status and a study permit at the same time. This is a standard procedure and permitted by Canadian immigration law. After you graduate, you will need a work permit to work in Canada. In all likelihood, your Canadian education will help you get a work visa that will allow you to remain in Canada for a long duration.
Here is a list of Canadian immigration programs that students may wish to consider:
● Canadian Experience Class (CEC) – To be eligible for the Canadian Experience Class, students must have at least 12 months of work experience in a specialized profession in Canada (students must apply within three years of obtaining 1 year of qualifying experience). Students may acquire the necessary work experience in Canada by applying for a Post-Graduation Work Permit. It is critical to note that part-time job experience obtained while enrolled in school or as part of a study program (such as internships) does not count toward the Canadian work experience requirement.
● Quebec Experience Class (QEC) – To be eligible for this Canadian immigration program, international students who have finished an approved program of study in Quebec, and who have achieved an intermediate level of French proficiency may apply. In Quebec, there is no need for Canadian job experience to be obtained before applying for the province’s immigration program.
● Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) – Many provinces administer provincial nominee programs that provide options for international students to immigrate to Canada through the systems they have in place. Most often, you must have finished your post-secondary study in Canada. Work experience and a job offer might be required by some provinces. Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) are very popular in Canada since the processing of Canadian permanent residence applications is completed quicker in this immigration process as compared to other immigration programs.
