Canada Immigration Backlog
The Canadian Immigration Service has 1 million new people by 2023 to revitalize the Canadian economy, which has been hit hard by COVID-19. We are planning to invite immigrants. With this plan, more than 400,000 new immigrants will be invited in 2021. Although it ended successfully, the immigration office invited a large number of new immigrants, pushing the immigration process. Done. According to the statistics, a total of 1,791,936 cases were pushed back in October 2021 and a total of 1,791,936 cases were released in December. It was confirmed to be 1,813,144. This increased by about 21,000 cases in 49 days, resulting in COPD. Processing of holders, permanent residency, study permits, work permits, and visitor visa applicants is delayed. Currently, for each permanent resident program, Express Entry has about 194,000 applicants indefinitely selecting from the pool. We're waiting. In other words, 194,000 people are one of the three streams of Express Entry: CEC, FSW, and FST. We are waiting to create an EE profile and receive invitation by meeting the above stream conditions. Among them, There is not enough score to receive invitation, but like the selection in February 2021, with a very low starting score, Some applicants have registered because they may issue invitation, or the selection of FSW or FST without recent selection. There are also applicants waiting. Among them, more than half of the applicants registered for EE with temporarily suspended FSW accounted for 80 percent of the total. In the case of FSW, the last selection was made on December 23, 2020, and there is no additional selection for more than one year, and in the case of FST, there is no additional selection. He has not been selected for about a year and five months since he started on August 6, 2020. And CEC will also be released in September 2021. On the 14th, he was suspended for four months with 462 points. Also, until last year, we selected every 2 weeks. BCPNP announced on January 11, three weeks after the selection on December 21, 2021. Like this, most of the permanent residency... The number of starters is decreasing more than before. In this situation, applicants preparing for permanent residency through EE will have a significant increase in their selection scores. Contrary to concerns, in order to meet the target number of immigrants in 2022, the number of people decreased significantly as in February 2021. Opinions are divided on whether to invite or not. The Canadian Immigration Service is planning to invite a total of 411,000 people by 2022. Compared to 2021, 10,000 more people... As much as you are selecting, you don't know when the government will send you a large number of invitations as last year, so you'll be able to send EE or other permanent residency. If you are eligible to register in the method, it is recommended to register in advance with the EE Pool. It's the basics of EE. You have to have a language score as a prerequisite, so if you're aiming for permanent residency this year, you can use CELPIP-G or I recommend you to apply for IELTS General and prepare it. Additionally, if you have overseas education, make sure to certify your academic background. You can also get an educational background score through it, so it is recommended to proceed with academic background certification in advance. For your information, my language grades are 2 years. Since it is valid for 5 years and the educational background certification is valid, it will be used immediately for the progress of permanent residency even if it is prepared from now on. It could be possible.
Prospects for Immigration to Canada in 2022
The severe labor shortage caused by COVID-19 has hurt economically not only in Canada but also around the world. In order to improve the shortage of labor, the Canadian government is trying to meet the shortage of labor by inviting more new immigrants in 2022 than 2021. Of course, this requires close cooperation between the Canadian Immigration Service and the Canadian Labor Administration, so the Canadian Immigration Service is also aiming to attract more immigrants in the future, so the threshold for immigration to Canada is expected to be slightly lower. If you are preparing or interested in immigration to Canada, I expect that the next two to three years will be the easiest time to obtain permanent residency in Canada. Most of the immigration preparations to Canada are carried out in one of the three main ways. The first are immigration after studying abroad to obtain permanent residency after entering a Canadian school, the second are employment immigration through employment in Canada, and the third are temporary permanent residency methods that are suddenly announced. If you look at immigration after studying abroad for the first time, you can come to Canada as an international student first, complete your studies, and apply for permanent residency. The reason why many applicants prefer this method is because of the open work permit called Post-Grading Work Permit (PGWP), which can be received after graduating from University or College approved in Canada. This open work permit can be received for at least 8 months to 3 years, and since it is an open work permit, you can find a job without much restrictions on employers or occupations. In other words, it is somewhat easier to find a job you prefer in Canada, and during this period, you can gain permanent residency while building your career in Canada. Other advantages are that if you graduate from school in Canada, as with most permanent residences, you can get additional points or special immigration programs only for graduates. In other words, there will be more opportunities to obtain permanent residency through more diverse immigration methods. Of course, there are disadvantages of this method, which can lead to additional periods for completing studies and burden of tuition. However, it is a good way to proceed to get a job right away as a job group you prefer after obtaining permanent residency or not having a high education level of education. The second is post-employment immigration, which is the most common when obtaining permanent residency. While there are programs to obtain permanent residency through careers outside of Canada, you must have at least one year of experience in Canada over the past three years, such as Express Entry's Canadian Experience Class (CEC). To this end, the most common way to build a career in Canada is to get a job offer from a Canadian employer and get a job with the support of a Canadian employer. The advantage of this method is that you can start preparing for permanent residency faster and work immediately, thereby reducing the economic burden. So it's one of the most commonly used ways to quickly acquire permanent residency and reduce costs in Canada. The third is the temporary permanent residence method that has been suddenly announced in recent years. First, in May 2021, a temporary permanent residence program called TR to PR pathway was suddenly announced. This program was suddenly announced by the Immigration Bureau to allow people to apply for permanent residency under very low conditions, giving 90,000 new immigrants a chance. However, because of the sudden announcement, applicants who were preparing for permanent residency in advance were able to proceed faster without missing this opportunity. The second is the Express Entry-CEC selection, which was suddenly announced in February 2021. At this time, about 27,000 people were selected, far exceeding the average starting number of 4,000 to 5,000, which resulted in a drop in the starting score from 460 to 75. Of course, at this time, only applicants who prepared their permanent residency in advance and were registered in Express Entry Pool could get the opportunity. In some cases, immigration offices suddenly announce immigration, and only pre-prepared applicants did not miss the opportunity. Therefore, it is recommended that you always prepare in advance because there may be such special immigration announcements in the future. Of course, in addition to the above-mentioned immigration methods, there are various immigration programs such as business immigration, self-employed immigration, or family invitation, and the appropriate immigration methods vary depending on the conditions of each applicant, so make sure to find out and prepare. Not only in 2022 but also in the next few years, the Canadian Immigration Office as well as the federal government are expected to focus on inviting new immigrants, so I hope you choose the most appropriate program based on your age, language performance, and career in advance.
Reviewing 2021 Immigration to Canada
밴쿠버 조선 일보
The start of the pandemic caused by the coronavirus in early 2020 has had a great impact on Canada's immigration system. Currently, the Canadian immigration system has stabilized a lot, but from 2020 to early 2021, the pandemic situation worsened, affecting and changing the Canadian immigration office's system. In early 2021, many immigration applications were being pushed back due to a very difficult situation for the Canadian Immigration Service, and applicants with COPD from abroad were waiting for their entry policy to enter Canada. The number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 was increasing both domestically and globally, and due to the low vaccination rate, regulations on entry into Canada continued to be tightened. However, despite this difficult situation, the Canadian Immigration Service has invited 401,000 new permanent residents as promised during 2021. The Immigration Bureau has opened many ways for temporary residents living in Canada to obtain permanent residency more easily to meet the target number of immigrants. To reach the first announced 401,000 new immigrants in 2021, about 90% of the candidates started in 2021 focusing on the Express Entry in Canada. And on February 13, 2021, the Immigration Bureau held the most unprecedented lottery since the launch of the Express Entry in 2015 to fill the number of new immigrants. A total of 27,332 candidates registered in the pool were invited to 75 points. He issued a statement on the decision and mentioned that when COVID-19 improves, people living abroad will also be invited. In May, the Immigration Bureau announced a temporary permanent residency program, allowing 90,000 Canadian graduates, essential workers, and healthcare workers living in Canada to apply for permanent residency, reducing immigration processing time by June, and inviting more than 45,000 new permanent residents per month in recent months. And finally broke Canada's new immigrant record last week. The strategy of focusing on attracting new immigrants has successfully enabled this goal to be achieved and hundreds of thousands of people have been able to acquire permanent residency. Unfortunately, we tried to attract so many permanent residents, but the immigration office invited a large number of new permanent residents, delaying 1.8 million immigration processes. In this situation, COPD holders, permanent residency, study permits, work permits, and visa applicants were also delayed more than usual, and FSWPs were temporarily suspended, forcing those registered in the pool to wait until the selection. Despite these situations, the Canadian Immigration Service allowed PGWP holders to extend their PGWP once in January 2021 to give them extra time to build their careers to facilitate immigration processing, and in other cases, 30,000 people were invited to parent and grandparent programs. Finally, with numerous efforts by the Immigration Bureau, Canada succeeded in inviting more than 401,000 new permanent residents and broke Canada's all-time record since 1913. Looking at the current goals and achievements of the immigration office, it is expected that the immigration office will give more and more opportunities to reach the target number of immigrants in the future.

We did. Also, Koreans and foreigners entering Korea from midnight on December 3rd to midnight on December 16th are vaccinated. It was announced that quarantine measures should be taken for 10 days regardless of vaccination, but as of December 15th, Korean time, The government announced that it would extend the policy until January 6, 2022.
The latest update on immigration regulations in Canada.
Now that it is difficult to enter Canada without vaccination, vaccination has become a prerequisite for entering Canada. Canada's entry regulations are also being tightened due to the continued coronavirus mutation, and travelers who re-enter Canada within 72 hours of departure from Canada do not have to undergo corona tests before entering the country. This exemption includes children under the age of 12 who are only eligible for Canadian citizenship, permanent residents, or travelers registered under Indian law, and those who are not vaccinated for health reasons. Therefore, travelers with work permits or study permits with other identities must complete the PCR test to enter Canada. As of last month, the COVID-19 vaccine list was expanded and entry regulations were tightened on November 30. The vaccination list includes Sinopharm, Sinovac, and COVAXIN, which are emergency use lists designated by the WHO of the World Health Organization, and vaccinations must be completed except for a few exceptions to travel to and from Canada. However, until January 14, 2022, even those who belong to a specific exemption group can enter the country even if they are not vaccinated or the primary inoculator. According to a recent announcement by the Canadian government, people over the age of 18 who have not completed vaccinations approved by the Canadian government, including international students, are not allowed to enter Canada from January 15, 2021. In addition, certain subjects who have been exempted will only be allowed to enter the country if they have been vaccinated approved by the Canadian government. The list excluded from the exemption includes those who enter the country for family reunions, international students aged 18 or older, professional and amateur athletes, individual work permit holders, and essential occupations. From February 28, 2022, people over the age of 12 who have not completed the vaccination will not be allowed to take domestic flights or trains even in Canada. This provision applies to everyone except a few exceptions, so foreigners who have entered Canada as unvaccinated can board the plane without being vaccinated until February 28. If you are not willing to leave the country, please make a reservation for vaccination as soon as possible for a free trip. In summary, for now (as of 12.15), it was possible to travel domestically and abroad in Canada by submitting the results of the COVID-19 test before, but from November 30, only those who have been vaccinated by the Canadian government can travel. There are some exceptions here, and the government has announced that they should contact the airline or railroad directly. The Canadian government said the Canadian government's response to the COVID-19 epidemic will put people's health and safety first, and will continue to consider additional measures or mitigation to maintain safety according to changes in vaccination status, number of infected and hospitalization rates. The entry restrictions related to COVID-19 are expected to continue to change in the future, so if you have any immigration plans, please check the entry restrictions in advance and prepare for your trip.
Enforcement of immigration regulations to Canada and Korea.
Omikron spread rapidly in Africa and South Africa when it was reported to the WHO on November 24. In the meantime, Hong Kongers who visited South Africa and returned home also appeared in Asia after it was revealed that they were infected. In addition, less than three days after the first infection case was confirmed in Europe and Belgium, the infection rose to the surface even more as Omicron cases were reported in the UK and Germany. In this situation, immigration regulations and self-quarantine from all over the world were re-enforced before further damage occurred, forcing those who had previously planned to travel to cancel the trip. The Republic of Korea has imposed restrictions on entry into eight countries, including South Africa, since November 28 to block the inflow of Omicrons. However, three days after the measures, five people, including a couple in their 40s who arrived from Nigeria on December 1, were confirmed to have the Omikron mutation virus. The couple in their 40s who arrived in Korea visited Nigeria until November 14-23 and returned home on the 24th, and were tested positive for COVID-19 on the 25th. This is the first case of omicron infection in Korea, and it occurred nine days after omicron mutations were reported in South Africa. In order to prevent further cases in this situation, all travelers coming from overseas for two weeks from December 3rd to December 16th must self-isolate for 10 days regardless of nationality or vaccination. In addition, PCR tests have been further tightened three times before and after entry (before entry, one day after entry, before release from quarantine). Canada also took quick action when Omikron appeared. First, travelers who have been to Nigeria, Malawi, and Egypt within two weeks were banned from entering the country and added additional countries in Africa. However, Canadian permanent residents and citizens who fall under the above measures are allowed to enter the country, but they must go into self-quarantine until they are inspected at the airport and notified of the results. Currently, according to the Canadian government's announcement, those who have completed the vaccination can be self-quarantined until they are notified of the results, and those who have not been vaccinated and primary vaccinations must be self-quarantined for 14 days on the 1st and 8th. Both inoculators and non-invaccinated people do not need to do it at hotels if there is a safe place to self-isolate, the government said. Omicrons have a total of 32 mutations, so they are twice as many as delta mutations. In addition, it has been confirmed that it is highly likely to avoid both natural immunity obtained from previous infections and immune responses generated by vaccinations. Currently, there have been cases of infection in Ontario and British Columbia in Canada, so we hope you will all have a safe and enjoyable year-end by wearing masks and washing your hands during indoor and outdoor activities.
Slow immigration processing, FSWP and CEC on hold.
"EECEC," an Express Entry experienced immigrant who receives the most applications when obtaining permanent residency in Canada, has not been selected for 11 weeks since September 14. Looking at the previous selection process, the selection was made regularly every two weeks until August 19, but only EE-PNPs are selected for the first round of PNP approval after September 14, a month after the selection on August 19. In other words, EE-CEC continued to select every two weeks on average, like EE-PNP, giving many applicants an opportunity to obtain permanent residency. Once, an average of 3,000 to 6,000 people were selected for the selection, but now there are no EE-CEC selection for more than two months, and only 2,000 people have been selected for the most recent selection, September 14th. As a result, there have recently been concerns about whether CEC selection will no longer be selected or whether the score will be significantly raised, or opinions on whether to collect at once and provide a large amount of invitation with lower scores as before. The CIC Immigration Bureau explained why there was no EE-CEC selection in this situation. The reason why there has been no EE-CEC selection recently is that we have decided to withhold the invitation of FSW and CEC to handle the current excessive backlog. According to the report, IRCC tried to actively select candidates for CEC and temporary permanent residency programs in December 2020 instead of stopping inviting professional immigration programs (FSW) to fill the number of immigrants in 2021, causing significant inventory growth, delays in filing and all economic categories. Currently, 1.8 million applications have been delayed in IRCC Immigration as of October 2021. This includes permanent residency, temporary residence, and application for Canadian citizenship. The number of delayed applications increased by 300,000 from 1.5 million in July 2021. According to statistics, 99,968 express entry permanent residency applications are pending on October 27, 2021. In addition, 7,307 additional people were selected due to computer errors in selecting temporary permanent residency programs. IRCC plans to accommodate 401,000 immigrants in 2021 and has made a major announcement that it will receive a total of 1 million new immigrants by 2023. In order to meet the target number, the immigration office is expected to reinforce additional manpower and gradually facilitate the processing, so the temporarily suspended professional immigrants (FSWP) and express entry experienced immigrants (EE-CEC) are expected to be carried out soon. Therefore, even if there is no EE-CEC selection at the moment, it is actively recommended that you be registered in the EE Pool in advance if you are subject to registration for the EE Pool.
Working Holiday pool closed
Working holiday, one of the IEC (International Experience Canada) programs that Koreans have heard of at least once, ended at 9 a.m. Eastern Canada on November 12 after the last selection announcement in 2021. Working holidays are divided into a total of two quarters every year, and a total of 4,000 people are selected, 2,000 people each quarter. In 2020, a total of 3,946 people were sent invitations, but in 2021, only 2,316 people were selected, and 3,610 people waiting for Warhol invitation were not eligible for invitation. This situation seems to be caused by a delay in the government's work process due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In the first half of 21, working holidays were required to have job offers due to the COVID-19 situation, but as regulations were eased from September 7, 2021, job offers were exempted from applicants who were vaccinated, increasing the number of people registered in the pool. Selected personnel only need to enter Canada within one year of approval, and through the Open Work Permit issued while living in Canada for one year from the date of entry, they can work anywhere in Canada without restrictions from employers and even two to three jobs at the same time. Basically, you have to meet some conditions to apply for a working holiday. First, you must prove your residence in Korea with a passport valid for more than a year as a Korean citizen. Second, only those aged 18-30 can apply and must prove their balance of $2,500 or more. Also, you must be a person who can enter Canada smoothly and have medical insurance while living in Canada. If all of these conditions are met, it will be completed by paying the application fee. The recent COVID-19 situation in Canada is gradually easing regulations for those who have completed vaccinations, and the working holiday expiration date is one year from the date of final approval, so we expect to experience Canadian life more safely in 2022.

BOWP said that applicants in Canada whose Permit expires after applying for permanent residency from the Immigration Department Permit is issued so that you can continue to work or live while waiting for the results of your permanent residence application.
