Immigration to Canada through the PNP as of 2022
Canada's immigration minister recently announced that the suspended selection of Express Entry will resume sometime in July this year. In the meantime, it has been about processing backlogs of applicants and quickly accepting immigrants, which is good news for those who were preparing to immigrate. So, what was the immigration category that led immigration in Canada? It was definitely a PNP selection. While federal-led immigration slowed down, PNP immigration through state governments has been relatively active, and many people have immigrated through this field. In other words, the delay in selecting Express Entry has led to more attention from the state government, and the role is expected to grow in the future. So this time, let's look back at the current PNP selection and look at the prospects. First, let's find out what PNP is. The PNP stands for Provincial Nominee Programs, a federal immigration program that recommends and approves immigration candidates that the state considers appropriate. Introduced in 1998, the screening was aimed at resolving the interstate population and economic disparities, and equalizing the benefits of immigration. If you immigrate through the federal government, you often choose to live in large cities or populated areas. Therefore, we have selected immigrants on a state-by-state basis, encouraging them to migrate to relatively sparsely populated areas, helping to eliminate population imbalances and recruit the right people for each state to help develop the region. In fact, most states, including Manitoba and Saskatchewan, have smaller populations and require more economic conditions to develop in the future, with the program accommodating immigrants. Naturally, there are many demands for PNP immigration in each region, and if you are mindful of Canadian immigration due to the policy of actively encouraging current immigration, it is a priority for immigration screening. Data shows that last month and April's PNP approval results issued 3,000 PNP invitations in a month, and at this rate, PNP alone is expected to generate more than 93,000 immigration approvals annually by 2024. A closer look at the current PNP status shows that PNP selection varies from state to state and that selection linked to Express Entry has different characteristics. Earlier, it was said that the selection of Express Entry was suspended, but unlike ordinary Express Entry, selection through PNP has continued. This is an area of immigration in which the PNP is approved by the federal government by recommending applicants who support immigration through Express Entry to those who apply for state-specific conditions. While federal-led immigration has been delayed, state-led selection has continued, and more PNP candidates have been sent in the past two months than ever before. In April, 1,554 candidates were named in the Express Entry selection according to two PNPs. In the case of BC shares, PNP approval was announced by lottery every week. Subjects can apply for permanent residency through Express Entry BC, which is previously linked to PNP, select 29 occupational groups called BC PNP Tech, or apply for immigration through Skilled Immigration called Technology Migration. As of April, more than 665 immigration candidates in BC received invitations, indicating that state-led selection actively continues. This is the same for other states. In February this year, Alberta changed its current Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AIN) to AAIP (Alberta Advantage Immigration Program), and began screening Ukrainian refugees in March to announce the results. Ontario also announced that it will work with the Toronto Business Development Center (TBDC) to develop and start an entrepreneur pilot program for two years with the goal of repairing the local economic damage caused by COVID-19. Immigration at each state level has been active in the COVID-19 pandemic situation, and rather, the state government is making various efforts to compensate for the damage caused by it. There are also attempts to make the selection more colorful and to introduce new methods. Therefore, different conditions on a weekly basis may be more appropriate or disadvantageous depending on the person. Federal-led Express Entry immigration will begin soon, but perhaps the selection scoreline that will be announced just after the start may be above expectations, or it may take longer for it to be your turn. The answer to this may be immigration applications through the PNP. If you look at the current conditions and try to immigrate to the states you need, it may not be harder to get permanent residency. In order to do that, I will have to look at my conditions and what type of immigration will be appropriate. I'd like to continue to share this with you in future columns.
IRCC to resume FSWP & CEC Invitations in July
On April 22, there were some important immigration policy announcements from the Canadian immigration minister. Among them, the most noticeable thing is that the selection of Express Entry will resume in July. Due to COVID-19, the Canadian Immigration Service has suspended the selection of FSWP (professional immigration) since December 2020, and the selection of CEC (experienced immigration) from August 2021. It was very worrying for those who were or were considering immigrating to Canada in this area, but this immigration policy is fortunate news. The COVID-19 pandemic has not only affected slowing immigration screening, but also hit the Canadian labor market hard. The narrow flow of foreign workers into Canada has led to labor shortages everywhere. Canada is currently experiencing unprecedented low unemployment, but on the contrary, labor shortages at industrial sites are also record. Therefore, the government is doing its best to supplement the labor force, and the Immigration Bureau is announcing a number of policies to bring in foreign labor in line with this. The decision to resume the selection of Express Entry as soon as possible seems to have been made in this context. The normalization of the Express Entry screening period was once again mentioned, and the delay in selecting this field has led to a pile of unprocessed applicants' documents, which has also affected the prolonged document screening period. Finally, recently, Express Entry has taken 7 to 20 months to complete the review alone. With the resumption of the selection, the Canadian Immigration Service announced that it would speed up document screening and return the average document screening period before the pandemic to six months to normalize the document screening period. In addition, we added some hopeful content to those who were issued PGWP. Previously, when PGWP expired, it could not be reissued or extended, so it was not possible to continue its stay in Canada. There was a BOWP that could replace this, but it was a visa issued while waiting for the results after applying for permanent residency, so there was no way to get an existing work visa again if you did not apply for permanent residency. The immigration office's decision includes a policy to bail out those who own existing PGWP who expire. Those who expire between January and December 2022 will be issued an additional open work permit of up to 18 months starting this summer. About 50,000 PGWP holders are expected to benefit from this measure, so those who are affected should pay attention to the upcoming additional issues. Finally, additional benefits were announced one after another in TR to PR, a temporary permanent residency program held in May 2021. Living in Canada was one of the prerequisites at the time when this program allowed you to apply for permanent residency. However, the new measure eliminates the need to live in Canada during the document screening period. In addition, those who applied for an open work permit during this period will be able to receive a valid work permit by the end of 2024, allowing them to live anywhere in Canada or Korea until the day their permanent residency is issued. Additional measures have been announced to help you stay with your family if you continue to live in Canada. Open work permits can be issued to families who apply for permanent residency with the main applicant for permanent residency so that they can enter and work in Canada. A series of immigration policies seem to express two major commitments. It seems to be an effort to return the slow immigration screening process to the pre-COVID-19 level and to solve one of Canada's biggest problems, the labor shortage. This is good news for those preparing to emigrate to Canada or considering immigration. That's because the door to immigration is opening up a little more. The wall of immigration, which has been felt to be somewhat high, is gradually decreasing, and these news may be a sign that the right time is coming right now for those considering immigration.
If you're considering getting Canadian citizenship,
Statistics Canada says up to 86 percent of permanent residents in Canada get citizenship. And that's by far the highest number of Western countries. It can be interpreted that the benefits of acquiring citizenship in Canada are great, and there are many benefits that can be enjoyed through this. Then, what are the advantages of Canadian citizenship, and this article will deal with the advantages of acquiring Canadian citizenship. First of all, citizens don't have to submit entry and exit records to extend their stay in Canada. Some people think that both permanent residents and citizens enjoy the same benefits, but they don't. Permanent residency has a clear expiration date of five years, and if you do not extend your visa for residence by submitting documents from nine months before the expiration, legal residence may not be possible at any time. In particular, you must live in Canada for more than 1,095 days for a five-year period, and if you do not meet the period properly, you may have difficulty renewing your permanent residency unless there is a reason to be recognized. There are also differences in job choices. Permanent residents are not given the opportunity to work in some national institutions or in particular jobs that require greater security. For example, in the case of military service, permanent residents can apply, but they must apply for citizenship within three years of becoming a soldier to continue working. On the other hand, citizens have more choices in getting and maintaining the job they want because these restrictions do not exist. In addition, there is an advantage of Canadian citizens when considering employment in the United States. Canadian citizens have relatively less restrictions on economic activities in the United States than permanent residents by easily obtaining TN visas granted through The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Considering employment beyond Canada to the nearby United States, the benefits of citizenship are quite great. Another advantage of citizenship is that there is little risk of deprivation of residential status. Permanent residency is likely to be forfeited at any time. In the event of a crime or committing a crime, permanent residents may be deported without protection from the Canadian state. Minor crimes do not matter, but permanent residents can be punished up to deportation even in cases of drunk driving, which has been classified as a serious crime since 2019. Citizens, on the other hand, will not be affected by their residential status unless they are proven guilty or pose a threat to international criminal organizations or national safety in obtaining citizenship. You can also mention that elections are possible. Being able to speak out and vote in person is a great advantage of being a citizen of Canada. Of course, permanent residents can participate in voting in their own countries, but not being separated from issues that directly affect the area in which they live is a great right as citizens and a meaningful way to lead an independent life. Finally, we can talk about the possibility of dual citizenship. Canada allows dual citizenship. Therefore, it is not difficult to have a different nationality, while having Canadian citizenship. Especially in Korea, Canadian citizens aged 65 or older do not have to give up their Korean citizenship. In addition, women who are born with both Canadian and Korean nationalities can use both countries' passports if they fill out a pledge before the age of 22. Therefore, it can be a great benefit to have citizenship in two different countries if the situation and conditions are right. The process of applying for and obtaining citizenship after being a permanent resident can be a problem. Of course, just as light and shade exist everywhere, there are certainly advantages that are lost by citizenship acquisition. This article is intended to help people who are worried about obtaining citizenship by informing them of the advantages that can be said to be an advantage and giving them reasonable consideration. Considering citizenship, it would be good to think about the advantages listed above at least once.
Super Visa for Parents & Grand Parents, it's better to apply earlier
Canada issues a Super Visa for permanent residents or citizens to take their parents and grandparents to Canada. This is a visa valid for 10 years after issuance, and it is free to enter Canada or leave the country several times during this period without any hindrance. In addition, it allows the recipients to live in Canada for two consecutive years, making it a very useful visa for applicants to stay with their parents or grandparents. I recommend that you get this visa because it's convenient and there are many advantages that can be achieved. In particular, it is recommended to get this visa unconditionally for now if you proceed with PGP inviting your parents. As of 2020 and 2021, this field has become a popular immigration field, with about 200,000 parent-invited immigration documents filed with the Canadian Immigration Bureau. But this method of selecting immigration applicants is literally a lottery, like a lottery. If you apply, you can gather applicants on the waiting list and select immigrants through a lottery, but conditions such as applying first or good documents do not affect the selection. Depending on your luck, you may be selected first, or even if you wait for a long time, there is no answer. There are many complaints about the selection process, but the current immigration minister Sean Fraser, Canada, says he has no intention of revising it. It is said that the selection method according to the existing application order caused inequality, but as soon as the application for parents' invitation in 2019 began, online applications were closed in 11 minutes. Depending on the country or region, there may or may not be an infrastructure to quickly apply online, so this method was also clearly limited. Therefore, the Canadian Immigration Service now believes that the method of drawing is the best way to maintain overall "equality." Therefore, a super visa can be an alternative. If you want to be with your parents as soon as possible, if you apply for a parent-invited immigration and get a super visa, you can live in Canada and wait for immigration approval. If you don't know when the results of the draw will be announced, a super visa will make this wait less boring. Parent-invited immigration may take years, and even approximately 32 months, according to the Canadian Immigration Department's announcement, to process the currently overdue documents. On the other hand, a super visa takes about 100 days to be issued, so it must be the fastest and most comfortable visa to serve your parents. Also, depending on your parents' tendency, life in Canada can be satisfactory or uncomfortable. You can have time to experience Canada in advance and learn before receiving permanent residency, and you can have time to organize your life in your home country. Or, sometimes, parents can choose not to move to Canada, so it seems wise to take advantage of the period until immigration approval through a super visa. Therefore, there is no reason to hesitate to apply for a super visa. Through this, it will be a good choice to spend time with your parents in Canada as soon as possible.
Government to implement an active policy to address the Canadian labor shortage
밴쿠버 조선 일보
On April 4, the Canadian government took steps to ease its visa restriction policy to actively hire foreign workers. Canada currently lacks more labor than jobs. The Canadian government has made it an alternative to increase the employment of foreign workers due to the low unemployment rate and the lack of workers. As a result, five measures were announced, and some took effect as of the announcement date on April 4, and some will take effect on April 30. First of all, one of the three policies that took effect immediately after the announcement was to permanently apply the "Seasonal Cap Exemption," which had been in effect since 2015 for those who had to hire different employees depending on the season. At the same time, the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) eliminates the low-wage employment limit for employers in the industry, increasing the employment term from 180 days to 270 days. Secondly, the validity of the LMIA approval has been extended from the previous 9 months to 18 months. Finally, high-wage and Global Talent Stream workers have extended their maximum employment period from two to three years. There are two policies that have been announced to take effect from April 30th. First, in seven areas of business where labor shortages have been proven, employers can hire low-wage workers for up to 30% of their workforce through the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) for one year. Areas covered include food manufacturing, wood product manufacturing, furniture and related product manufacturing, accommodation and food services, construction, hospitals, nursing and residential care facilities. All other employers may employ up to 20% of their workforce as foreign workers through the TFW program until further notice. In addition, we have decided to terminate the current policy of automatically refusing LMIA applications for low-paying jobs in accommodation, food service and retail in areas with high unemployment rates of 6% or higher. The root reason for the implementation of a series of policies seems to be that the job shortage has become serious across the Canadian economy industry. Canada, in particular, had its biggest job shortage last year, with 130,070 in lodging and food businesses, 119,590 in healthcare and social welfare, 103,990 in distribution, and 81,775 in manufacturing as of November 2021. On the other hand, we can see from the records that they have supplied a lot of labor through foreigners. Approximately 5,000 jobs have been approved through the Global Talent Steam, a global talent program, and 23,000 jobs have been approved through the High-Wage Stream, a high-paying This also accounts for approximately 21% of all LMIA approvals approved in 2021. In addition, the number of approximately 50,000 to 60,000 foreign agricultural workers coming to Canada each year is high enough to account for more than 60% of all foreign workers entering Canada under the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP). Therefore, the new measures are expected to play an appropriate role in solving problems in areas where labor shortages are severe. Based on this change in policy, Canada wants to achieve both the stable supply and demand of labor and the goal of increasing the population by receiving 1.3 million immigrants over the next three years. This is because it can be seen as a realistic policy in Canada's immigration policy, where labor experience is likely to lead to immigration approval. Therefore, I feel optimistic that the implementation of the new policy has begun the best time for those who want to work or immigrate to Canada.
Immigration speeds up for Health-care and ECE workers in British Columbia
On March 10, an important change in BC PNP selection was announced. There are some good news for those who dream of emigrating to Canada. Among them, it is good news for those preparing to immigrate to this field that Healthcare and ECE early childhood teacher positions are classified as Care Economy and classified as priority selection. Already, BC Tech's occupation group has been selected independently, and immigration has progressed faster than other occupations. The Care Economy category is also rapidly continuing to be selected. The category started with 27 ECE 85 points on March 14, 21 with Healthcare 85 points, and Healthcare assistants 63 points to select less than five. As we have announced since then, we are continuing regular selection about once a week, so we can say that rapid immigration is underway. Therefore, I think those who were preparing to immigrate in this field can immigrate much faster and easier than before. The High Demand job list was also excluded. In the meantime, the system that gave additional 10 points to certain occupational groups has disappeared. On the other hand, the total score of BC PNP was lowered to 190 out of 200 points, so the advantage of the job group that received the score has disappeared. With that, the overall starting score will also be slightly lowered due to the lowered total score. There have also been changes to Skilled Immigration career conditions. Previously, at least two years of experience was required to be relevant to your current job, but this change allows you to apply with at least two years of NOC 0, A, and B Skilled work experience regardless of your current job. However, applicants with relevant experience can receive bonus points. You can understand that this has changed in the same form as the Express Entry CEC career conditions. IRCC is trying to resume the selection of Express Entry with the goal of spring this year. This is what immigration minister Sean Fraser said at the Educate the World Conference on March 10 at the Apply Board. His remarks show that Canada is making various efforts to prevent the outflow of necessary personnel. Currently, PGWP is not renewed or extended, so you have no choice but to get another Work Permit or leave Canada when the expiration date expires. So the proposed alternative is to receive a BOWP and stay just before expiration. I expect that many other proposals will continue to be announced. If you are preparing to immigrate and keep focusing your eyes and ears on new news, I think good news will be presented one after another.
Immigration screening delayed, but the screening process is expected to accelerate.
According to recent data released by the Canadian Immigration Department, the number of people waiting for immigration screening is now close to 1.84 million. This is an increase of about 400,000 compared to last summer, while raising concerns that immigration screening may be stagnant at the moment. So do those who have to wait for immigration screening have to wait longer than they do now? I think it is possible to interpret it optimistically, unlike the visible figures. If we look at immigration screening data beyond simple figures and look closely at the policies announced by the Immigration Bureau, I think immigration screening will proceed faster in the future. First of all, it is difficult to say that the main cause of the delay in immigration screening has increased the time it takes for the screening itself. Rather, it is correct to say that the number of applicants for immigration has increased by that much, so the number of people waiting for examination has increased. For example, compared to the end of last year, the number of citizenship applicants and TR to PR Pathways increased by about 5,000 each. In this way, records show that the number of applicants has increased in almost all areas, including citizenship, permanent residency, employment permit and study abroad permit. On the other hand, screening has been speeding up recently. Examinations in the areas of the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) and the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) have accelerated in recent weeks. In particular, the number of people who completed the review of the FSWP in the past two weeks was higher than the amount in the past seven months. According to the announcement, the reason why the Express Entry lottery has been sluggish has been part of the work to process the screening that has been delayed. In addition to the increase in the budget, it is also positive that the Immigration Bureau, including Minister Fraser, has a strong will to speed up immigration screening and return to normal levels. Therefore, if you are waiting for the approval of the Immigration Department, you can put down a little concern that the screening will be delayed. I hope that immigration screening will return to normal soon.
BC State Government of Canada Announces Major Updates to BC PNP
On March 10, 2020, the BC State Government announced several major updates to the BC PNP program. I have announced it. The first key point is the High Demand job, which received an additional 10 points in a particular occupation group. The list was excluded and changed from 200 points to 190 points. BC PNP, therefore. Applicants in occupational groups who were eligible for additional points upon application will not be able to receive additional points. That's enough, but this is expected to lower the overall starting score a little. The second main content is that healthcare workers and ECE early childhood teachers are CARE ECONOMY. It is divided into priority occupations, such as BC TECH, by category. BC TECH occupational group It has already been classified into priority jobs and is currently being selected separately in BC PNP selection, quickly. Immigration processing is possible. And finally, on March 14th, with BC PNP TECH, ECE, Health care and health care assistant were selected separately. selection In terms of scores, TECH selected 123 people with 85 points, and ECE (NOC 4214) selected 27 people with 85 points. The selection was made with 85 points for Healthcare, 21 people for Healthcare, and 63 points for Healthcare Assistant for the last time, less than 5 people. I have invited you. In this way, immigration to the state of BC for the four occupational groups has become more advantageous. The following major changes were made in career conditions. be related to one's current job for at least two years before BC PNP support was possible only with experience, but now BC PNP support is minimum regardless of current job. With two years of experience in the NOC 0, A and B Skilled professional groups, we are now able to apply. For example, if... Applicants have 2 years of experience as restaurant supervisors and are eligible to apply as early childhood teachers. If you have, you can apply with your previous supervisor experience. This is an Express Entry CEC experience. I think it's the same as the conditions. In addition, NOC 0 jobs are no longer available in the International Graduate category. You can only apply under the Skilled Worker category. Also, there are some new information about the employer's conditions Added or updated. The update is a measure to accommodate the essential human resources mentioned by Canadian immigration minister Sean Fraser. It appears to be an update that has been implemented. In order to proceed with permanent residency in early childhood teachers, healthcare, and tech, Those who do so should check the latest updates and proceed with permanent residency.
Alberta Advantage Immigration Program (AAIP)
Alberta's immigration conditions do not require age scores or age limits, require only elementary-intermediate English skills, and have no minimum income regulations. Therefore, it is the most popular state immigration program for students in their early 20s or couples in their 30s and 50s with children. As of February 16, 2022, Alberta immigrants were renamed Alberta Immigration Nominee Program (AINP) to Alberta Advantage Immigration Program (AAIP), and two new streams were added: Rural Renewal Stream and Rural Entrepreneur Stream. AAIP has a program called Streams for Workers for foreign workers who live and work in Alberta, which includes Alberta Opportunity Stream and Alberta Express Entry Stream, and a total of three new Rural Renewal Stream. In addition, there is a Stream for Entrepreneurs program for those who live in Alberta and plan to start their business in the region, including the Graduate Entrepreneur Stream, Farm Stream, Foreign Graduate Entrepreneur Stream, and the newly added Natural Entrepreneur Stream. The most common of these seven programs, Alberta Opportunity Stream (AOS) and Alberta Express Entry System (AEES), are as follows: First, Alberta Opportunity System, AOS, is an immigration program for temporary foreign workers who are offered jobs (job offers) by Alberta employers. To look at the terms of application, the applicant must first be a valid Work Permit holder or a PGWP holder who graduated from a school in Alberta. At this time, the required career requirement is that the Work Permit holder must have at least 12 full-time months in Alberta within the last 18 months or 24 months in Canada or abroad within the last 30 months. PGWP holders must have at least 6 months of full-time experience in Alberta within the last 18 months, and their experience must be related to the graduation department. The following are the educational background conditions: All applicants except PGWP must graduate from at least high school, and overseas educational background must be certified by the ECA. And PGWP holders must be graduates of universities and colleges in Alberta to apply. All occupational groups eligible for the immigration program are eligible for NOC 0, A, B, C, and D except for certain jobs. Language grade conditions include NOC 0, A, and B jobs must be CLB 5 or higher or NCLC 5 or higher, and NOC C, D jobs must be CLB 4 or higher or NCLC 4 or higher. For NOC 3413 (Nurse Helper, Patient Service Helper) occupations, CLB 7 or higher or NCLC 7 or higher. The validity period of the language grades is 2 years from the date of issuance, and it is recommended to prepare in consideration of the period of permanent resident application application. The following Alberta Express Entry Stream (AEES) is a combination of the federal immigration program Express Entry and Alberta Immigration AAIP, and applicants who register for Express Entry Profile can apply for permanent residency with Nominee from the Alberta government. In addition, applicants who are already working or who have received job offers can quickly qualify for the job as part of the Accelerated Tech Pathway job list in Alberta, similar to BC TECH. The program allows applicants to receive Nominee documents after receiving a Notification of Interest (NOI) from the Alberta government to qualified applicants, not directly. Applicants eligible for AEES must first register their profile with Express Entry and wait for Notification of Interest from the Alberta government. Upon receipt of the NOI, you will receive Nominee from the Alberta government after receiving the application, adding the Nominee to your Express Entry Profile and receiving an additional 600 points to apply for permanent residency. For your information, NOI selection is usually once every 1-2 weeks. The most important requirements for application are to qualify for one of the three Express Entry programs, CEC, FSW or FST, to be an applicant who wishes to live in Alberta, and to have an Express Entry score of 300 or higher. Applicants are more likely to receive NOI if they have job offers and careers in Alberta, or if they graduate from school in Alberta, and if their parents, family, or siblings are permanent residents or citizens and live in Alberta, their last French native language. However, if your Express Entry Profile is valid for less than five months, you are less likely to receive NOI if you work in a job group that is excluded from Alberta, or apply for a job group with too many applicants. Recently, as BCPNP and Express Entry have become difficult to proceed, many applicants are considering moving to other regions, and the Alberta State Immigration Program called AAIP is also a way to obtain permanent residency. I hope that the increased selection score and English score these days will help those who are worried about preparing for immigration.
