Updated recent immigration trends following deregulation with COVID-19.
The Canadian federal government makes periodic announcements about new policies or deregulation caused by COVID-19, and many of its affiliated organizations are always making new announcements. Recently, there have been many updates on the re-opening of the English test, the government's positive response to Canadian immigration, and the extension of border closures between Canada and the United States, which will allow Canada to prepare for immigration again, which has been in a slump due to COVID-19. It is fortunate that we are able to prepare for immigration to Canada again due to the re-opening of the English test and the positive trend of Canadian immigration, but on the other hand, we believe that COVID-19 could be longer than expected due to the extension of the border closure between Canada and the United States. Reopen the English test! For permanent residency applications, most immigration programs require language scores, English tests or French tests. You can see IELTS and CELPIP for English score, and you have to prepare a TEF Canada or TCF Canada score for French test, but many language test schedules have been canceled since March 18th due to COVID-19. The tests scheduled for April and May were automatically canceled and failed to meet the language test, resulting in a number of mishaps in which permanent residency could not be registered, but as the sanctions on COVID-19 were finally lifted, the language tests are expected to reopen soon. Currently, the states where IELTS tests are open in Canada are BC, Alberta and Manitoba, and CELPIP is open only in BC states. But it is also expected to open soon in Alberta, Manitoba and Newfoundland. As many applicants are expected to be gathered due to the sudden re-opening of the English test, we should prepare well for the English test in advance so that there is no problem in the process of permanent residency after booking. Canada is favorable to immigration due to COVID-19. Federal Immigration Secretary Marco Mendi Chino recently stressed in two interviews that immigrants after the Corona virus will be an important part of economic development. In an interview, Marco said COVID-19 illustrates the need for strong immigration to Canada and the importance of immigration to the Canadian economy, and reiterated that there is "continuing value." Marco reiterated the importance of immigration because many sectors of the Canadian economy rely heavily on immigrants and believe that COVID-19 will help revive the sluggish economy by getting new immigrants. In particular, as immigrants stand out in the front-line workers, food and hospital sectors, which are essential workers for COVID-19, they want to rely more on immigration. Canada still aims to accommodate 700,000 new immigrants from 2020 to 2021, and plans to increase the number of new immigrants steadily by 2030. The government's announcement is expected to open the door to Canadian immigration for the next 10 years, as more immigration programs will be announced and encouraged in the future. Extension of Canada-US Border Closure Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Canada and the United States have agreed to extend the 30-day border closure. The Canadian-American border was first closed about two months ago, and it was decided to close for another 30 days, so the border was scheduled to open again on May 20, but the closure was postponed until June 21. Even if the Canadian-American border is closed, visits for essential purposes are possible. Essential Visits are available for work or study visits, health, safety and security-critical services for Canadians, services for economic production activities, or family combinations. Family bonding is not just for the purpose of visiting relatives, but for family members who have lived together to reunite. Trucks and trains are allowed to export and export food, fuel and medicines as usual. As for the above sanctions relief, the Canadian government is always coming up with new policies, so it is necessary to identify the sanctions before taking the English test or before entering the United States or other countries. I hope that sanctions imposed by COVID-19 will be eased as soon as possible and that life will be normalized as well as all economic activities.
Let you know a guide to the detailed Agri-Food Immigration pilot.
As the Agri-Food Emigration Filter, or agri-food immigration, was implemented as scheduled on May 15, much attention is being paid to it. At first, the date for the implementation of agricultural migration was scheduled for the end of March, but it was delayed by COVID-19 worldwide and officially implemented on May 15. Agri-food immigration is a temporary three-year program designed to address Canadian employers' labor needs in meat processing, mushroom and greenhouse production and livestock breeding industries. The work permit holder, who already works in Canada, has been interested in obtaining permanent residency more easily and aims to receive 2,750 applications annually by 2023. The reason why I'm interested in agri-food immigration is that certain professions can acquire permanent residency more easily. There are a total of six jobs available for this program: farm supervisor, retail butcher, wholesale butcher, food processing worker, farm worker, and harvesting worker. As with other permanent residency programs, the application requirements are the same, but the application is based on a first-come, first-served basis rather than on a score basis, so you can apply only if you meet the basic conditions, even if you don't have a high English score, academic background, or a lot of experience. Your career needs more than one year full-time experience in the last three years in Canada. The full-time here refers to a full-time job that requires more than 30 hours of work per week, and only the six jobs mentioned above can be recognized. You can apply for language scores if you only have 4 CLB points, 4 points per CELPIP area, and IELTS for Reading 3.5, Writing 4.0, Listing 4.5, and Speaking 4.0. In addition, the minimum settlement fund based on the number of family members should be proven. One-person households: $12,960, two-person households: $16,135, three-person households: $19,836, four-person households: $24,083, five-person households: $27,315, six-person households $30,806, seven-person households, proof of balance must be submitted as required. If you are currently working in Canada, it is not mandatory to prove it, but if possible, I recommend you to prove it. However, this program has limited the number of people who can apply every year. It is not always possible to apply for a job in this job, and the number of applications has been limited for each job group. There are 50 farm supervisors, 1,470 butcher workers, 730 food processing workers, 200 farm workers and 300 harvesting workers. We also expect it to take approximately 12 months, similar to PNP, given that we have yet to announce the exact duration of the procedure, but that we will have to apply by mail. As we receive applications on a first-come, first-served basis, we recommend that applicants who qualify for the application prepare the documents as soon as possible. Even if you don't apply this year, it will open again next year, so you have to prepare in advance so that you can apply right away next year. Also, this program was implemented for the first time, and unlike the existing immigration program, there are many additional documents that require, so please make sure to prepare the documents from the beginning.
LMIA Impact from COVID-19
LIMA is an almost essential process for permanent residency. Of course, it's not mandatory for all permanent residency applicants, but it's essential to earn extra points in applying for the Express Entry permanent residency, or to get a Work Permit that allows you to legally live and work in Canada. However, there is a lot of concern about whether such an important LIMA can proceed at a time when COVID-19 reduces or reduces the number of employees currently employed. The bottom line is that LIMA is receiving applications and interviews with employers and coming out safely, given the massive job cuts, government subsidies and the progress of LIMA from March to May, when telecommuting began. LMIA stands for the Labour Market Impact Assessment, a program being implemented by Service Canada to help local Canadian companies hire and operate. Service Canada encourages Canadian citizens and permanent residents to get a job first, so companies want to give Canadian citizens or permanent residents a chance first. However, companies that cannot supplement enough human resources only by Canadian locals will be granted permission to meet their overseas workforce through LIMA. However, it may be ironic in some ways to apply for LIMA to hire additional employees at a time when COVID-19 has caused existing staff to be reduced and the business to close. So there's a lot of concern, and fortunately, Service Canada has decided that this is a temporary situation and is approving LIMA applications and approvals. Of course, there are some companies that operate normally as before, but others that do not have the same approval rate are getting approval with quite a high approval rate. The most worrisome thing is that the company currently has reduced employees. While it may not make sense to hire new employees during the downsizing process, recent interviews with LIMA officials have shown that LIMA has also given its approval if it intends to rehire existing employees after this COVID-19 incident. In addition, work permit holders were able to return to their home countries due to COVID-19 and obtain approval even if they were short of staff. On the other hand, companies that have significantly lowered their current income, not restructuring, or that have temporarily closed their businesses have received applications well, and LIMA has been approved without any problems. However, in the LIMA interview, you can ask carefully how you can make up for your insufficient income and when you plan to reopen it. The duration of the LIMA process will vary from company to company, but usually within two to four weeks of application, the interview contact has been the most frequent, and in the case it takes two to three months. Of course, the duration of the procedure may vary between companies and judges. As mentioned above, LIMA is proceeding according to existing policy regardless of COVID-19, and applications and approvals are coming out as long as the company's LIMA application conditions are met. However, there may be differences depending on the examiner and the government policy continues to change due to COVID-19. If you need to extend work permit after receiving LIMA from Canada or plan to move forward, we recommend that you prepare and apply for LIMA and Work Permit as soon as possible.
If I got fired, Should I leave Canada?
Now not only Canada but also the world is not doing normal economic activities due to COVID-19. As a result, many workers are suffering, especially those who work permit who are preparing for permanent residency in Canada. As a result, a common concern for work permit holders working in Canada is what happens when they lose their jobs and how they affect immigration applications. First of all, the Work Permitholder may not know exactly whether or not he/she can stay in Canada after losing his/her job and how to deal with it. In conclusion, there are many ways to stay in Canada even after you lose your job. In the case of Work Permit holders through LMIA, if they receive a Work Permit via LMIA, they have a Closed Work Permit, and even if they are currently unemployed, they can legally stay in Canada until the Work Permit expires. But you can't work elsewhere. In other words, if you receive a Work Permit through LMIA, it is a Work Permit that you have already set up and received so that you can work for a particular employer and a specific job in a particular region. Therefore, if you work through this Work Permit, you must work with the employer as defined by LMIA. However, if you are forced to lose your job, you can stay in Canada like a visitor until the work permit expires without leaving Canada. If you want to work elsewhere, you can find another employer and start a new job with LMIA and Work Permit. Unlike the Closed Open Work Permit above, Open Work Permit holders are free to find and work with their employers during the Open Work Permit period. You don't need to get a new work permit like Closed Open Work Permit. This makes it easier to find new employers than Closed Work Permit. If your current work permit expires soon or has already expired, you must apply for a new Work Permit application before it expires. Alternatively, you should apply for Study Permit or Visitor Permit to maintain a legal status to stay in Canada. If you applied for a new permittance before the expiration of the current permittivity, you can legally stay in Canada until the results of the new permittance are released, and your status is called "implified status." If you have not applied for a new permittion before the current permittivity is over, you will be given a period of permit restoration, called Restoration, within 90 people from the time the permittion expires. If you restore the restoration within this period, you can live in Canada while waiting. You also need to know exactly how your previous career is recognized when you lose your job. If you quit your job in the middle due to unemployment, your career will be recognized from the date you started to quit, and if you start working again in a new job, your career will continue from then on. For example, if you work for six months in a job called A and work for another six months in a job called B after losing your job, your total career can be recognized for one year. In addition, at a time when there is a lot of interest in employment and permanent residency, I hope you will find out the exact information and how to deal with it and make sure that you are prepared not only for the extension of the work permit but also for permanent residency in the future.
Is there only a CEC selection in the recent Canadian permanent residency program Express Entry?
There have been a total of six Express Entry selections until April 16 since the entry into Canada on March 18. A total of six starts in about 29 days were the shortest since Express Entry was created in 2015. On April 9, there were two starts on the same day, and from April 9 to April 16, there were four starts in a week. Recently, due to such an unconventional selection, EE's starting score dropped from 470 to 455. If you take a closer look at these selections, there is a difference from the ones previously announced. Only CEC was selected for the selection on March 23, April 9, and April 16, and only EE was selected through PNP for the selection on March 18, April 9, and April 15. In other words, if you look at the existing selections, the selection of CEC (experience immigration), FSW (technical migration), and PNP (state immigration) were always made at the same time, but since March 18, CEC and PNP selection have been held separately, and there has been no FSW selection for a month. We can see why we're suddenly so focused on the selection and the CEC selection, but the biggest impact is COVID-19 (Chorona virus. The CEC was implemented in 2008 to encourage foreign students and foreign workers to have permanent residency, and the number of international students and workers has increased exponentially since then. As a result, I received more permanent residency and contributed greatly to the economic growth of Canada. CEC basically requires a year of experience in Canada, and most CEC applicants already live and work in Canada while applying. Therefore, CEC selection is focused on CEC selection rather than FSW selection because CEC applicants are considered to be less exposed to the risk of COVID-19 than FSW applicants who are relatively overseas or who have a short time to enter Canada. As such, Canada has already settled in Canada and is encouraging the immigration of applicants who are less exposed to COVID-19. It aims to attract more permanent residents and revive the sluggish economy with COVID-19. The expected economic growth in Canada due to CEC is highly regarded. Basically, in order to obtain permanent residency, we need young age, high education, high language skills, Canadian experience, and overseas experience, because by providing permanent residency to these applicants, we can make economic progress through skilled, young workers who already work in Canada. But in Canada, CEC is not the only program, so when the overall immigration score is falling, you have to consider how to obtain the right permanent residency through other immigration methods such as PNP. There are not only EE immigration methods, but there are many immigration methods such as PNP, AINP, and RNIP, so I hope you find out more about them and proceed.
Decrease draw point for Canada immigration program Express Entry
On April 16, he was selected as Express Entry with 455 points, the lowest score of 2020. Express Entry, which had maintained 470 points since November 2019, was finally selected as 467 points when the 470-point wall collapsed on March 23, 2020. Since then, the score has been lowered for each selection, resulting in 464 points for the April 9 start and 455 points for the April 16 start. In about three weeks, the Express Entry score was down by 15 points, giving many Express Entry waiters hope and unexpected selection. There are three main reasons for this sudden drop in Express Entry scores. The first main reason is periodic selection. Looking at the three recent starts, there were starts on March 23, April 9, and April 16, and there were just two weeks, and just another in a week. Decreased points by advancing the time frame for Express Entry, which is selected at an average interval of two weeks and three weeks at the longest. The second reason is a subdivided selection of Express Entry. The commonly known Express Entry selection is for EE programs except EE-CEC, EE-FSW, and EE-PNP's EE-FST, but only EE-CEC and EE-PNP have been selected since March 23rd. While the selection type was reduced from three to two, the EE score was lowered because the number of starters remained at 3,900. Of course, it's not good news for EE-FSW applicants because there hasn't been a selection of EE-FSW for a month. CEC is an immigration law that requires a one-year career in Canada, and FSW is an immigration program that can be applied overseas without a one-year career in Canada. Therefore, FSW applicants who are not currently in Canada due to the recent COVID-19 or who can apply without Canadian experience may not be selected for the time being due to this COVID-19. Finally, it is affected by corona. The public expected that Corona would make immigration more difficult, but it would actually benefit applicants who have already registered for EE Pool. Additional EE competitors have noticeably decreased. Academic certification and English test are required for EE registration, but academic certification and English test have been suspended due to Corona. Therefore, applicants who have already prepared for academic certification and English test can wait for their scores to be lowered after registering EE, but applicants who have not prepared yet have to wait until Corona is calm. Therefore, EE, which is a relative evaluation, is getting lower scores as the competition decreases. We have already selected 30,400 people in 2020, compared to the expected decrease in immigration due to Corona. Compared to a total of 85,300 people selected in 2019, if selected at this rate, it is expected to issue more than 90,000 selection rights in 2020. The government believes attracting new immigrants is a must to revive the economy affected by the COVID-19. The government's previous goal of reviving the Canadian economy by attracting more immigrants is expected to focus on attracting more and more immigrants. You're going through a tough time with COVID-19, but I hope you don't miss the immigration score that's going down this time, as we say crisis is an opportunity.
Canada immigration applying fee will be increase
The Canadian Immigration Service announced that it would raise immigration fees. The new fee rules will take effect as of 9 a.m. (EST) April 30th, and applications received prior to that will be charged at pre-increase fees. However, this fee increase is important for all prospective permanent residency applicants, as the increased exact fee must be paid for applications after April 30th, and the documents will be returned as incomplete if they are not paid. The fee increase is federal expenses that have also been applied to state applicants and accompanying families. The increased types of permanent residency were largely divided into business classes where self-employed and investment immigrants belong, Express Entry, which immigrates with experience and technology, and non-business classes where PNP immigrants belong. The increased fees for applying for permanent residency generally increase by 50%. • Main Applicant: Business Class (self-employed, investment, etc.) $1,050-> $1,575 (50% increase) • Main applicant: non-business class (Express Entry, PNP – Skilled Imigration, Family Invited Immigration, etc.) $550 -> $825 (50% increase) • Companion spouse: $550 - $ $825 (50% increase) • Companion children: $150 -> $225 (50% increase) • Landing cost (RPRF: Right of Permanent Resident Fee): $490 -> $500 (a 2% increase) PNP state fees, Biometric costs and PR card extension costs have been frozen. For example, before April 30, express entry to pay if the denizenship applications for a family of the total cost of immigration, which soared past 1,040 per $ ($ 550 (your listener with the denizenship applications.) + cost $ 490 (Cost : rprf raending)) The total cost of immigration after this April 30, compared with $ 1,325 (cost of celadon with the denizenship applications (which you have $ 835) + (Cost : rprf raending)) increased to $ 500.To pay costs. In addition to this, you also need to pay $85 Biometric. If you apply for Express Entry as a four-member family, you would have previously paid $2,380 (two adults ($550+550+490 (RPRF) + two underage children ($150 + $150) plus an additional $7,220 (US$250+ $100) to pay $2,100 (US$225) after April 30. According to the Immigration Bureau, the increase was the first since 2002, reflecting the rise in the Canadian price index. In addition, the next increase is expected in 2022. We hope that applicants who can prepare for immigration will be able to apply as soon as possible and acquire permanent residency not only for the cost reduction but also for the immigration policy to change in the future.
BC Provincial Nominee Program Impact from Corona
Recently, the CORONA virus (COVID-19) has caused Canada's Immigration Bureau to announce new policies day after day, delay progress, or temporarily suspend some progress. The implementation of Agri-Food Imigration, which was expected to come out earlier this year, has been delayed, and many permits applications have been delayed due to the closure of most Biometrical Centre. On top of that, on March 30th, BCPNP announced that it would temporarily not provide the Invitation to some occupations. A total of 14 jobs were temporarily excluded from the selection, including food, retail, tourism, and lodging. as you can see from the excluded occupations Retail and Wholesale trade manager, restaurant and food service managers, agreement service managers, Managers in customer and personal services, n.e.c., administrative officer, an administrative objective, mass terapists, return sales supervisors, food service supervisor, accommodation, travel, tourism and related services services, etc. Chefs, cooks, hair stylists and barbers It is feared that most of the jobs will be directly damaged because many Koreans are engaged in them. The reason for this BCPNP action is that many businesses across Canada have reduced service, laid off employees, and, in some cases, closed down, but among them, the above industries have been more affected than other industries, and the nature of this industry has made employment unstable. Applicants who have already been selected for BCPNP or who are preparing documents or waiting for federal results as Nominees will not be eligible, but who have already applied for BCPNP documents or received an Invitation will not have to worry about this announcement. The excluded jobs were applied from the selection on March 30th, and it is uncertain how much longer they will continue. At the end of COVID-19, the above jobs are expected to be selected again, but if the Canadian economy continues to be affected by COVID-19, it is also important to be concerned that not only the above jobs but also other affected jobs may be added. Applicants who are included in the above jobs and who are about to apply for BCPNP can wait until this COVID-19 ends, but also consider Express Entry or other immigration methods for quick progress or LMIA to maintain their status in Canada. Not only Canada, but also the whole world is suffering from the coronavirus (COVID-19), but the Canadian Immigration Service is continuing to proceed, so I hope you don't give up and apply for a definite immigration.
In a corona state of affairs Who is allowed to enter Canada?
Canada's federal government has continued to change its immigration policy and procedures over the past few weeks to prevent the spread of the coronavirus (COVID19). The biggest measure was to enforce travel restrictions from March 18 to June 30, but Canada still allows certain citizenships, permanent residents and temporary residents to enter the country. However, due to the unclear content of this restriction, we have been waiting for more specific conditions and we have finally announced the specific conditions once again. This information ensures that not only citizens and permanent residents but also applicants who had a work permit and a study permit are admitted to the country. In the case of Canadian students, they can enter Canada if they have a study permit or a certificate approved before March 18, 2020. In addition, those who have obtained Work Permit approval from Canada before travel restrictions are imposed can enter Canada. Additionally, if the permanent residency was approved before March 18, 2020, you can enter Kanda. You must bring your passport and certificate before entering the country, and you must quarantine it for 14 days even if you do not have any symptoms after entering the country. Isolation is now a must, so it must be self-isolated for 14 days. Direct family entry into Canada has also been expanded. Only immediate family members of existing Canadian citizens and permanent residents were allowed to enter Canada, but from this time on, they can enter Canada if they have work permit, study permit, or monitor permit in their immediate family. The lineal family that we are talking about includes: • Spouse or cohabitation • Dependent child or spouse's dependent child: 21 years of age or younger • Children of dependent children or of dependent children of spouse: 21 years old or younger • Parents or stepfather, stepmother or his spouse • A guardian or tutor Additional documents required for entry include a marriage certificate, family relation certificate, and basic certificate that can reveal the relationship between you and your immediate family, and a Canadian passport, a permanent card, and a temporary certificate that can confirm your immediate family's status in Canada. Due to the coronavirus (COVID19), the Canadian government is changing its entry sanctions and policies every minute, so if you need to enter Canada, or if you need to proceed with permanent residency or citizenship, we recommend checking the government's policy frequently. I hope the CORONAVID19 will work together to overcome this difficult time in Canada and the world. Please take care of your health and follow the methods to avoid viruses. Thank you.
