BCPNP "Techpilot Program" Extended indefinitely
The Techpilot program, popular as one of the most important programs for BCPNP state immigration, has been extended indefinitely and adopted as a formal program. According to a May 28 announcement by the BCPNP State Government, the Techpilot program, which was previously temporary, was supposed to run until June 30, 2021, but after June 30, it has been changed to a formal program and can be supported permanently supported. This is good news for applicants who were urgently preparing and accepting Techpilot by June 30 this year or those who couldn't apply due to lack of time. Techpolit was introduced temporarily in May 2017, with applicants working in 29 NOC Technology Sectors in the BC state. The reason why the BC state is implementing the Tech Pilot Immigration Program for only 29 sectors is that they are a major economic growth factor in BC, while the demand for Tech jobs is growing faster than supply. In other words, demand continues, but there is not enough labor to fill the vacancy, so it is to promote economic growth along with the promotion of the workforce. However, the shortage of talent in related fields has not been fully resolved despite the Techpilot progress from 2017 to 2021, so we decided to extend it permanently and implement it as a formal program for growth in certain areas and economic growth in provincial areas. Techpilot has continued despite COVID-19, and 1,855 people have applied for permanent residency in 2020, up 23% from 2019.The reason why Techpilot continues to gain popularity and proceed a lot is because of the advantages of this program. The first advantage is that unlike other BCPNP programs, they are selected every week and issued Invitation. That's why applicants in 29 major technology professions at Techpilot can get invitation faster. Of course, in order to register for BCPNP Techpilot Pool, you must register after meeting the qualification criteria for applying for the four BCPNP programs, such as for ordinary BCPNP applicants. The four BCPNP programs described here are Skilled Worker, International Graduate, International Post-Graduate, Healthcare Professional, and you can apply for BCPNP after meeting one or more of the basic application conditions. You must also earn enough Invitation draw points to receive Invitation. The second advantage is that the processing period of the application is very short. Applicants who apply through Tech Pilot have been announced that BCPNP will review and give results before other cases, and BCPNP nominee, or primary state approval, 24 hours at the earliest, or 1-2 weeks at the latest. It's a very fast procedure compared to the average three months for BCPNP applicants. Finally, the score selected for the Tech Pilot draw is lower than the BCPNP draw every other week. For example, the BCPNP score selected on May 25, 2021 was approximately 90-94 but the Techpilot score selected on June 1, 2019 was 80. Since BC state is a human resource that it wants to supply urgently, even the score to receive Invitation is being measured lower. As the Techpilot program, which has additional advantages over the basic BCPNP, has been adopted as a formal program, applicants in related jobs will be able to prepare for permanent residency thoroughly in the future. If you thought it was due in June this year and tried to give up your Techpilot job, please check again if you are included in the Techpilot job and get permanent residency.
What if the employer changes after receiving LMIA?
In fact, we can see that there are often instances where employers change after receiving work permits through LMIA. Usually, if an existing company is merged with another company, or if a new company purchases the current company, the current employer may change. In this case, many work permit holders will have many concerns, such as whether they should get LMIA again, whether they can have more experience, or whether permanent residency support is no longer available. However, even if the employer's company that supported LMIA is merged with another company or changed to another company, if you maintain the following two conditions, you can work without getting a new work permit. Of course, in this case, you can accumulate experience for permanent residency and apply for permanent residency. The first condition is that the new company must maintain the same business as the existing company. For example, if it is a restaurant company, it should be maintained as it is, and if it is a trading company, it should be maintained as a trading company. For example, even if you change from a restaurant to a production company and your position remains the same as before, you may need to get a work permit again because your business sector has changed. For your information, there is no provision that even the name of the company should be kept intact, but if you keep the name of the company, it can be easy to prove that it is the same field, so it is advantageous to maintain it as possible. The second condition is to keep the employee employed on the same terms as when the new company approved the existing LMIA. The conditions here are salary, position, and place of work. In other words, if the type of business changes or the wage, position, job, or company address changes, a new work permit must be issued. If the above changes are required to obtain a new work permit, you will not be able to start working for a new company until you receive a new permit. In order to get a new work permit, most cases have to start over with LMIA, so if the employer and conditions are going to change, they should be prepared in advance so that they can work immediately after the company changes. For example, if the employer does not change but moves to a position or other place within the company, LMIA and work permit may be required again. In this case, contact the person in charge of Service Canada who approved the LMIA to obtain approval for the change and maintain the work permit, but this may vary depending on the examiner. This change of employer does not necessarily require a new LMIA or work permit, but it can be maintained depending on the circumstances. Therefore, if there is a similar situation, we must consult with Service Canada, immigration or experts to check and proceed accurately.
Canadian immigration trends in 2021
As we enter June 2021, the first half of 2021 is almost over and we are facing the second half. The first half of 2021 gave applicants preparing for permanent residency a lot of hopeful news and opportunities, and showed that the prospects for permanent residency in Canada will be bright in the future. Like this, in the second half of 2021, permanent residency in Canada seems positive, but certain situations can affect immigration to Canada, so we need to know and prepare in advance what situations can affect. Immigration to Canada in the remaining 2021 is likely to be affected by two major factors. First, the end of COVID-19 and secondly, the Canadian general election. The impact of COVID-19 Pandemic has had a positive impact on immigration to Canada as well as the global economic downturn, as everyone feels. In the months since March 2020, when COVID-19 Pandemic began, all immigration programs in Canada were temporarily suspended, but then again Canadian immigration continued and introduced a number of policy changes and new programs to meet immigration targets. As the COVID-19 situation gradually improved, there was also a massive immigration selection and program announcement in February and May this year. On the other hand, some of Express Entry's programs, FST and FSW, have been temporarily suspended since March 2020, and some PNP state immigration has been delayed. Due to COVID-19, all parts of the immigration office have not been normalized yet. Canada currently has more than 40% of its population in the first round of vaccinations, with Canada being among the top five most vaccinated countries along with Israel, the United Kingdom, the United States and Chile. In addition, an additional 20 million people are expected to receive vaccinations by the end of June this year, which will normalize not only immigration but also all activities in the future. Like this, Canada is trying to normalize the immigration process by ending COVID-19 and re-progressing the immigration program, which had been suspended for a while, and immigration process. Secondly, the start of the general election in Canada is also expected to affect immigration to Canada. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is reportedly considering making a decision to proceed with the general election in the second half of 2021. Generally, the big program of immigration, Express Entry or PNP state immigration, is not significantly affected by elections. However, new immigration and temporary programs may be affected by the time of the election, as new policies and improvements to existing immigration issues are limited until the election is over. The aforementioned end of COVID-19 and the timing of the general election are expected to affect the progress of permanent residency in Canada for the rest of 2021. The sooner the COVID-19 ends, the faster the normalization of all immigration programs will be, and when the new immigration programs will be implemented depending on the timing of the general elections. I don't know the exact timing of both issues, but I'm preparing to emigrate to Canada as they have a big impact, so I hope you always watch these two issues carefully.
You can extend your visa in Canada until August 31st.
Border closures, travel bans and restrictions are still in place after the COVID-19 Pandemic, which has been in place for more than a year since last year, and many people have to extend their stay in Canada. In general, entry to Canada will allow you to reside in Canada up to the expiration date indicated on your Visitor Permit, Study Permit, and Work Permit, which you were approved to enter. Or if you enter the country via eTA, you can live legally for 6 months from the date of entry. And when these periods expire, visitors, students, and workers must leave Canada. However, even if it expires, if you have to stay in Canada for various reasons, you can extend your stay in Canada. If you have a Visitor Permit, you can first apply for an extension of your Visitor Permit to Canada. When applying for an extension, it is recommended that you register before the current permit expires, and you can apply online immediately. The immigration office says that if you apply online recently, it will take about 200 days for the results to come out, and you can continue to live in Canada legally while it is in progress. For example, if you extend your visit to a perm before the expiration of the existing perm and wait for the results to be released, you can still live legally until the results of the newly applied perm expire. This period is called the "implied status". However, during this period, you can only live in Canada as a visitor, and if you leave the country while waiting, the imported status will automatically disappear. Even if the current Permit has already expired, you can extend the visit Permit extension through a restore method called restoration. Alternatively, if you enter Canada as a visitor but receive work permit through an employer due to any circumstances, you can apply for work permit in Canada. In this case, you can legally reside in Canada while waiting, and Permit can be issued by mail afterwards. However, only after the approval of the work permit is granted, you can officially work and get paid. Finally, if you already live in Canada and need a Study Permit for your studies, you can apply for an academic permit in Canada and receive an approval letter by mail. These measures have been extended to 31 August 2021 as a special measure due to COVID-19 and may be changed thereafter. Currently, it can be seen as a policy to prevent the spread of COVID-19 by minimizing immigration by the Canadian government, which makes it possible to change or extend one's status in various ways even if one has already entered Canada as a visitor. Therefore, if you are currently living in Canada and want to study, or need to extend your stay, we hope you can register before August 31st to benefit.
Implementing the Canada Temporary Program for Canadian College Graduates (TR to PR Pathway)
As announced by the Immigration Office on Thursday, May 6, we have implemented six TR to PR Pathway temporary immigration programs. Among the special immigration programs, especially those through Canadian school graduates' streams received the most attention. The program received 40,000 applicants on a first-come, first-served basis, with 40,000 applicants flocking in 25 hours since the program began. Many applicants were disappointed that the presentation of the program's detailed list of documents was announced on the afternoon of May 5 and the program support did not have the opportunity to submit the application on time when it began the next day, May 6. In this process, there were some cases where I could not get a receipt due to the failure to prepare my English grades on time, the issuance of a certificate or report card, or the system overload on the day of the application on May 6. What's important here is that this is why we missed the opportunity to proceed with permanent residency, but the Immigration Department expects to give more permanent residency opportunities for international students in the future. This permanent residency method said that if you submitted documents first but failed to submit proper documents or if the application was not completed properly, it could be returned next time, and many applicants are expected to return as they applied urgently. Due to these results, the immigration office is unlikely to reach its target of attracting permanent residents through 40,000 applications, which is expected to open again next time. Similarly, parental invitation immigration is carried out on a first-come, first-served basis, like this temporary permanent residency method, but many applicants do not submit or return applications, giving new applicants an opportunity each time. Another example was the Canadian Diploma Stream condition, but at the same time there were cases where two permanent residency methods were applied to essential job streams. Then the examiner can check and adjust the number of applications. The Immigration Service has not announced this yet, but we are fully looking forward to it as we have always given more permanent residency opportunities to Canadian students and have promised to continue providing them until 2023. The biggest variable here is, of course, the spread of COVID-19. It is a fait accompli that the number of applicants preparing for permanent residency has decreased rapidly due to COVID-19 Pandemic, which started last year. As a result, applicants who have already entered Canada and were preparing for permanent residency have lowered the threshold for permanent residency in Canada and are still decreasing. If restrictions on entry to Canada continue or become more difficult due to COVID-19 Pandemic, applicants who are already preparing for permanent residency in Canada will have more opportunities to obtain permanent residency. Even if you didn't prepare the documents in advance and didn't apply for permanent residency, you are expected to have more opportunities in the future, so you should prepare your language scores and other documents in advance and be ready to apply for the new permanent residency program. There will be many opportunities at least by 2023, so please don't miss this hope and opportunity.
After TR to PR Pathway immigration Program QnA
Since the announcement of the unconventional permanent residency program on April 14, many permanent residency applicants have been preparing for related programs. According to the announcement, there are three programs, one for students graduating from school in Canada, one for those who have worked in essential jobs for more than a year, or for those who are fluent in French, and the qualifications have been briefly announced. However, I understand that there are many questions and questions about preparing documents for May 6th in advance because the details of the presentation on April 14th did not include specific conditions, application methods, necessary documents, and costs. So today, we will guide you through the recent questions and answers related to the newly announced program based on the updated content so far to help you prepare for permanent residency. How can I apply for an application? The immigration office announced that the application will be filed online. It's on a first-come, first-served basis, so you have to prepare and apply right away when it opens on May 6th. You can first check the applicant's qualification conditions and find the appropriate application program. After that, you can register all documents and government recognition zones together through the platform that will open from May 6th. It has been confirmed that we will need a required English report card and a certificate that we are currently working. What documents should I submit? This permanent residency program does not count as a score, but if you meet the conditions, all documents should be submitted at once and there should be no mistakes. Of course, additional documents may be requested after receiving the document for the first time, so you can refer to this separately. What documents should be submitted have not been announced in detail at this point, but it will be similar to those required for other permanent residency applications. This generally requires a passport, a copy of the current perm, an English report card, and a certificate of employment, and English grades are only valid for two years, so if your English grades expire at the time of filing, you should prepare a new one. How long is the document process? There is no official period announced by the immigration office yet, but we expect it to take about 6 months. Can I register at the same time if I am eligible to apply for two programs at once? Yes, if the conditions are met, more than two programs can be accepted at once, but the government should also pay separately. What is the government's land? It's not fixed yet, but it's likely to be another permanent residency fee of $1,325 and Biometric fee of $85. Can I apply before graduation? Yes, if you apply for a required job program, you can apply even if you don't graduate from school. However, if you proceed with the Canadian school graduate program, you must graduate first before proceeding. Do I have to be working when I register? Yes, the important part of this program is that you must be working when you submit the document. However, according to the report so far, you don't have to work full-time, and whatever you do, it meets the requirements. Therefore, if you work part-time, the conditions are met. As above, we have already said that we will implement this program on May 6th, but the details are before the presentation. However, most of the required documents will be similar to other permanent residency programs, so you can prepare them in advance by referring to other permanent residency programs. Therefore, if we are eligible to apply for this program, we will continue to check the immigration website, identify necessary documents in advance, and prepare them on a first-come, first-served basis on May 6th.
How to get the necessary academic certification for permanent residency in Canada.
Anyone preparing for permanent residency in Canada may have heard of the ECA (Educational Credential Assessment). Academic certification is a necessary course to get additional grades for permanent residency, and the reason why this certification is needed is to check which courses are the same in Canada if you graduate from a school outside of Canada. For example, when you graduate from 3 years in Korea, it is not clear whether you can get 2 years or 4 years in Canada, so you should check what kind of education you are recognized in Canada after certifying your academic background. In other words, without academic certification, it is difficult to proceed with permanent residency due to accurate academic scores. And if you graduate from school in Canada, you don't have to proceed with academic certification separately because you have already been recognized as a Canadian educational background. If you run Express Entry, a federal immigration program, if you don't have an academic certificate, you won't get any academic scores even if you graduate from college or graduate school because you don't have any academic background. Therefore, you need to get an academic certification for the highest academic background when you are conducting Express Entry. For example, if you have acquired all your bachelor's, master's, and doctorate programs, you only need to get a doctorate certificate. However, if you have an additional bachelor's degree, or if you have an additional one or two years of education, or if you have two bachelor's degrees, you can get more academic scores than if you have one bachelor's degree. If you proceed with BCPNP, you can get an academic grade if you have an English diploma even if you don't get an academic certificate. However, if you get an academic certification, you can get additional points for proceeding with the academic certification, so I recommend you get an academic certification and get this extra point. There are five institutions that provide educational certification: World Education Services (WES), Comprehensive Education Service (CES), International Credential Assessment Service (ICASC), International Qualifications Assessment Service (IQAS), and International Credential Evaluation Service (ICES). Normally, it takes about 1 to 3 months to get an academic certificate, so you have to prepare it in advance, and once you get it, it will be valid for 5 years from the date you receive it, so you can proceed with your permanent residency at any time. For these reasons, if you always prepare for permanent residency in advance, it will be helpful to proceed with permanent residency, so if you need an academic certification, I recommend you to prepare it in advance and prepare to proceed with it at any time.
Canada's new immigration program announced for college graduates, healthcare and essential workers.
On April 14, the Canadian Immigration Service announced an extraordinary new immigration program. Three programs have been announced for international students living in Canada, essential occupations or medical workers, and fluent French speakers. These three programs will be implemented in earnest on May 6 and will end on November 5, with a total of 90,000 international students, essential occupations or medical workers and unlimited French proficiency. In other words, it said it would be implemented until November 5, but if the maximum capacity limit of 90,000 people is reached before November 5, it will be closed before November 5, so it can be said that it is a permanent residence on a first-come, first-served basis. In these permanent residency programs, the principal applicant must reside in Canada, but family members can obtain permanent residency together even if they are abroad. Then first, you need to learn more about the programs and prepare them, but if you look at the international student program, anyone who meets the following conditions can apply. A total of 40,000 students will be selected for the international student program, and you should have graduated from a Canadian public school or a school that can support PGWP after January 2017. Or you can get recognition when you graduate from certain schools in Quebec. Also, you must live and work in Canada at the time of application, but self-employment is not included. Finally, you must submit your CLB5 or higher language grades within 2 years of the date of application for permanent residency. Next, a total of 20,000 people will be selected for the medical-related worker program, and 40 occupations, including nurses, doctors, pharmacists and social workers, will meet the requirements if they have worked full-time for more than a year within the last three years. In addition, you must be currently working in Canada and your language score must be submitted CLB 4 or higher within 2 years of the date of application for permanent residency. A total of 30,000 people will be selected as essential occupational programs, and similar to healthcare workers, more than a year of full-time experience and a language score of CLB of 4 or more are required within the last 3 years. A total of 95 jobs are available, including retail salespeople, farm workers, construction, caregiver, and kesher. In these permanent residency programs, the principal applicant must reside in Canada, but family members can obtain permanent residency together even if they are abroad. As the above announced threshold for permanent residency is somewhat low, so we expect a large number of applicants. In particular, it seems that the international student program may be closed on the day of its opening, so if you meet the above conditions and plan to apply this time, you should carefully understand how to proceed with this permanent residency in advance. Unfortunately, many of the jobs adopted this time are excluded from the restaurant industry and childcare teachers, so it is difficult to proceed with essential job programs, but if the international student program meets the conditions, it can proceed with the international student program method. Even if this doesn't work, the Canadian Immigration Service is trying to accommodate more immigrants, as indicated by the extensive selection of Express Entry – CEC on February 13 and the new immigration methods starting May 6. In other words, other immigration programs may be introduced soon and applicants who did not apply this time may apply, so I recommend you to make English grades in advance and pay attention to future permanent residency programs. The Canadian government is trying to revive Canada's economy, which has been depressed by COVID-19, by increasing the number of immigrants, so it expects to continue to increase.
Canada COVID-19 Special Policy Extension
Immigration Canada has extended the provisional COVID-19 special policy announced in 2020. The most talked-about policy of this extension is the policy that allows visitors living in Canada, or Visitor status, to accept work permit within Canada. The IRCC Canada Immigration Office approved a work permit by mail to Canada temporarily by 31 March 2021 due to the prolonged COVID-19 Pandemic phenomenon last year, August 24, 2020. Previously, visitors who already lived in Canada should have obtained a formal work permit by going abroad or returning to Korea after approving the work permit, but the special policy has been announced to reduce the number of overseas trips to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Of course, not everyone can apply, and applicants who apply for a closed work permit can receive a job offer through an employer in Canada. To be exact, only applicants who meet the following conditions can apply for work permit in Canada. The first condition is that the applicant must maintain a legal stay in Canada at the time of receipt of the work permit. For example, only applicants who have entered the country through eTA for less than six months or whose visitor term has not yet expired belong here. Second, you must have a job offer from a local Canadian employer. Employers must remain willing to hire until Work Permit is approved. Third, you have to accept the closed work term. In other words, work permits through LMIA or closed work permits that are filed after becoming PNP Nominee belong to this. Fourth, you must register before August 31, 2021, and you must maintain the conditions for entry and stay in Canada until then. The conditions for entry and stay here should basically be free of criminal facts that could be denied entry to abroad or Canada, and there should be no issues during physical examinations. As the conditions for application in Canada are not difficult, most Canadian visors are expected to be able to apply. The document will be reviewed and the result will be released on the same condition as other work permit when submitting. In other words, the above content is to enable application in Canada, but it is not to give approval, so you need to carefully consider and apply for documents and your conditions to get good results.
