Easily Acquire Permanent Residency as An Early Childhood Educator
Applying for permanent residency in Canada after a year of work experience in Canada is for the best. The required one-year work experience should be checked properly when preparing for the permanent residency application to increase the chances of obtaining permanent residency and save time. It is advantageous to obtain permanent residency after checking in advance whether the first job you choose is a work that is recognized in the system, a work that can give you extra points, or a work that you prefer to do in Canada. Weigh your options like eligible skilled worker occupations, occupations that give additional points in the system, and most wanted occupations. One of the growing hot careers among the applicants is early childhood educators. The applicants with the occupation of early childhood education receive bonus points in the system and additional governmental supports (funding). According to local circumstances, parents with children in Canada are placed on the waiting list for an average of three to six months for their children to enter in childcare centers. In 2019, the Canadian government announced the establishment of more than 3,800 childcare facilities, and they are reliably receiving high employment rates and high salaries. The average hourly wage for early childhood educators is around $17, and the government also pays an additional $1 an hour. There are three main advantages of applying for immigration as an early childhood educator. First, you must obtain an early childhood education certificate. You must graduate from a Canadian school or complete a certificate from foreign credential recognized schools. If you have obtained a certificate through a Canadian school, you will be able to receive additional points on your permanent residency. Second, if you apply for British Columbia provincial nominee program (BC PNP), early childhood educators are listed in the in-demand occupations by British Columbia government, so you can get extra points when applying for permanent residency. Third, you can get labour market impact assessment (LMIA) from your employer more easily. The biggest concern for childcare centre owners is labour shortage. Many employers support persons with ECE license to work at their centers. This opens all up great opportunities to find an employer, obtain a work permit, and receive a permanent residency card. For the above reasons, people who want to immigrate to Canada are trying to acquire an early childhood education certificate and build their careers. One of the advantages of becoming certified early childhood educators is that they also can open a childcare center in their own homes after obtaining a permanent residence. There are three main courses in applying for immigration to Canada as an early childhood educator: Early childhood education license: graduate from a school in Canada or obtain and convert an early childhood education license from your country. Find your employer in Canada: one year of work experience in Canada is often a great help to immigrate to Canada. Permanent residency: An average of six months is required for the process of Express Entry and an average of nine months is required for applications for the process of the combine of Express Entry and BCPNP (EEBC). If you proceed with one of above methods, you can obtain a permanent residency in Canada within 1.5 to 2 years on average after obtaining the license. When preparing to immigrate to Canada, I have seen many cases where employment is not so simple without any skills. However, if you get a license as an early childhood educator, it will be much easier to get a permanent residency and settle down in Canada. Government of Canada recognizes a labour shortage and provide opportunities for permanent residency and financial supports. If you are considering to immigrate to Canada, I recommend you to think about working as an early childhood educator in Canada.
Express Entry Q3 2019 Status
In the third quarter of 2019 (July, August and September), the Express Entry Invitation winners totaled 21,600, the most-selected quarter of 2019. Based on the announcement of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada that one million new immigrants would be invited by 2021, it was a successful quarter. With the immigration plan of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, it selected 21,200 in the first quarter of 2019 and 20,600 in the second quarter, followed by 21,600 in the third quarter. Express Entry is the Canadian Federal Immigration Program, which is an immigration method that many immigration candidates apply for. Because of its simple application conditions and fast process, it is a program that attracts many applicants at all times. The selection of Express Entry led to more immigration candidates on July 10, 2019, increasing the number of invitations from 3,350 to 3,600 from the first three quarters of the third quarter. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada has taken an approach in the past few months to gradually increase the size of its invitation through Express Entry and continues to increase this year. In the third quarter of this year, there were a total of six rounds with 3,600 selected for each one. The total number of this year's selection, including 21,600 selected in the third quarter, is 63,400, which is seemingly increased. In 2018, the total number of people selected was 89,800, compared to the third quarter of last year, and the number increased by 900. In the fourth quarter of 2018, we increased each selection to 3,900, making more choices in the final quarter. In 2019, we're doing the same thing. Based on the number of invitations announced on October 2, it has increased the number up to 3,900, which is the same trend as last year. If the current state of affairs continue to increase the number of invitations this time, we expect to have more than last year's total of 89,800. The final quarter, October, is expected to see more invitation rounds and the draw point will be lowered. The third quarter score range was 457 to 466 points, which is higher than last year's, and this quarter's estimated range is between 450 and 466. Four of the six rounds made in the third quarter were made every two weeks, and the overall draw point was lowered, but two starts over a period of more than two weeks, and the score, which remained in the 450-point range, fluctuated to the 460-point level. As August 12 moved on for the 19th period, we moved up from 459 points to 466 points, and the next selection fell back to 457 points eight days later August 20. Then, the draw was held 15 days after September 4 and the score was raised again to 463. As such, the current Express Entry score is not a constant upward or downward curve, but rather a series of upward and downward curves for each selection. Expectations for the remainder of the 2019 quarter are expected to be 3,900 selected and a downward curve, with the starting score also expected to fall below the 460 mark. However, the total number of candidates who have registered Express Entry Pool over 451 points is 9,525 and we expect to maintain more than 450 points overall, higher than last year. If you are applying for Canadian permanent residency through Express Entry program, you can earn points through your work experience, English proficiency test scores, family scores, LMIA, and provincial nominee program. Candidates who are already enrolled in Express Entry pool with a score in the 450s or lower range will be able to improve their scores in a variety of other ways rather than expect them to go down.
Change of Employer During Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) Process
During a provincial nominee program (PNP) application, we are often asked whether immigration process will be continued even if a legal owner of the company has been changed. A quick answer to this question, the immigration you applied for will proceed. However, because your provincial nominee program (PNP) has already applied through the terms of the former employer, job offer, and related documents, you must contact provincial nominee program office for re-approval of the terms of the employer. If there are changes in the terms of the application along with changes in the employer, provincial nominee program must be informed the state of the matter. For example, there are seven things that you need to tell provincial nominee program. - any changes in employer, position, place of work, or function. - lower salary than stated one in the application - unemployment - any changes in marriage or number of family members - any changes in temporary resident permit issued by government of Canada - when your work permit has been rejected - a change of your work hours (full-time to part-time) In the event of any changes in the above terms, you must ensure that the terms of the applicant and the employer are maintained with provincial nominee program. Once you get an approval from provincial nominee program, you can continue with the existing application for permanent residency, so there is no delay in the application process. In order to get a re-approval, you must ensure that the new employer meets the conditions for PNP supports. Conditions must be made that the applicant remains in the position and salary. If the position and salary change, you must check any changes in draw point due to the new position and salary. In addition, the company itself has to employ five full-time employees if it is located within metro Vancouver or three full-time employees if it is located outside of Vancouver. If the above conditions are established, the following documents shall be prepared and resubmitted through the company, as in the case of the first PNP entry. ∙ Offer of Employment ∙ Detailed Job Description ∙ Job Offer Form ∙ Company's Valid Business License ∙ Certificate of Incorporation ∙ Copy of current status document ∙ Proof of submitted PR application Submitting these documents will provide provincial nominee program enough information to review its eligibility. It will approximately take two to four weeks. Once approved, the Closed Work Permit holder under the name of the previous employer will now receive a new Work Permit Support Letter, which will require the application and approval of a new Work Permit to work with the new employer. If a change in employer does not require separate approval from provincial nominee program, a document has already been filed with the federal government after provincial nominee program approval, and if you are an Open Work Permit holder, the state does not need to obtain approval for a new employer. However, you should inform federal government about a change in employer so that any further misunderstandings may arise. Continued PNP proceedings are possible if the employer is changed, but the conditions of the employer must be checked in advance, so the decision must be made after consultation with an authorized immigration consultant if the employer changes, either in the case of a transfer or in necessity.
Found Inadmissible for Mistakenly Omitted as A Member of Family Can Now Apply for Immigration!
From September 9th of this year, the Immigration Service announced that applicants who are permanently banned from applying for permanent residency because their family members have not been listed as true will be allowed to re-apply for the next two years. When applying for immigration, all family members should always be listed even if they are unaccompanied. The purpose of the review is for national security. Occasionally, mistakenly omitted family members are not allowed to apply for immigration to Canada for life under the Immigration Act IRPA 117(9) and 125(1)(d). This time, family sponsorship program will grant a temporary two-year permit on humanitarian grounds. The purpose of this program is to support family-oriented public policies announced earlier this year and to eliminate a negative impact on young children because of all members of the family cannot be together due to these laws. There are only three applications for this unaccompanied guest immigration program: First, when an unaccompanied family member who will apply for immigration application applies for immigration, he or she must apply through a spouse, a cohabited family member, or an invitation for children. For this program, a new method of immigration has not been introduced, but an existing family-invited immigration program should be applied, and it should be stated that the application has not been properly published despite being an unaccompanied family in the past. Second, a sponsor in Canada should have obtained permanent residency through family and refugee immigrants. In other words, families who have already obtained permanent residency in Canada may invite additional unaccompanied families only if they have obtained permanent residency through family invitation immigration in the past. Third, you must first check and fulfill whether the sponsor is a condition that allows you to invite your spouse, cohabitant, or child. As in the first condition, we need to invite unaccompanied families through the existing family invitation immigration program. In other words, you must meet the conditions of family invitation migration rather than both invitees and invitees. For example, if there is sufficient income to support in accordance with the number of families or if the applicant does not have a criminal record. For your information, this temporary program will not apply if the sponsor has previously acquired a permanent residency in the Economic Class, or Express Entry, or PNP. The policy will also begin September 9, 2019 and be effective September 9, 2021. Those inadmissible ones could once again dream of being able to live in Canada.
2019 Election Has No Significant Impact on Immigration to Canada
The 2019 Canadian federal election later this year, many immigrants are worried about any possible changes in immigration laws. The 43rd general election will be held on October 21, and there are many questions about how elections can affect the Canadian immigration system. Polls show that the Liberal and Conservative parties have a similar number of votes, and that under immigration policy that began in the late 1980s, the big framework of the immigration system is expected to remain stable regardless of which party wins the election. There are four main reasons why this is expected. The first is immigration acceptance. Regardless of the outcome of the election, Canadian immigrants will maintain more than 300,000 a year and are ready to do so. Since the 1980s, the Conservatives have decided to double or more than 200,000 immigrants a year, and the Liberals have announced that they will increase the number of immigrants to increase their votes. In addition, the increasing number of immigrants can ease the financial burden of Canada's aging population and low birth rate, and both parties are always focusing on increasing the number of immigrants, as more than 9 million baby boomers are expected to begin to retire in the next decade, which the Canadian government is concerned about. In 2006 and 2015, when the Conservatives took power, they had an additional 260,000 immigrants per year, and in 1996 and 2005, 225,000 more immigrants per year, when the Liberals took power. The second is the composition of new immigrants. When the Conservative Party came to power, 63 percent of the total immigrants were economic migrants (technical immigrants), 27 percent were invited to their families, and 10 percent were granted permanent residency as refugees. Since 2015, the Liberal Party has increased refugee immigration by 15 percent and lowered economic migration (technology migration) to 58 percent. According to the immigration plan announced in 2018, the organization will remain in place until 2021. This history of the past suggests that, regardless of the number of immigrants, if the party becomes a conservative in this election, it will reduce refugee immigration again and raise economic migration again to over 60 percent. Third, the settlement fund. If you look at the funding for immigration in the last 20 years, you see a significant increase. The resettlement fund is being used by newcomers to come to Canada to adapt to Canada's economy and society, such as language education and job support. Both parties have continued to increase their resettlement funds and have more than five times more than in 2000. No matter which party takes power, the funds for immigration are expected to increase. Finally, I expect immigration. There is no question that the Liberal and Conservative view of immigration is different. But the two parties also have many things in common about immigration. What both parties want through immigration is to improve immigration levels, embrace global talent and raise government budgets. That is why both parties are inseparable from immigration. The above reasons suggest that the specifics of immigration may change, but the immigration system is not likely to change much. Those who are preparing to emigrate would like to put aside concerns that the election could change the immigration law, and make sure that they can prepare for the immigration process and get permanent residency.
Downtrend of Provincial Nominee Program
BCPNP scores are finally turning downward giving hope to many EEBC or BCPNP applicants. In addition to Express Entry, BCPNP’s starting points have always changed, but never been as dramatic as this year. The BCPNP-first score, which had been in the 80s since March this year, has reached the top of 110 in July this year. In order to get BCPNP 110 points, it was almost unparalleled unless it was a basic four-year college degree, English CLB 7 (iELTS 6 or CELPIP 7). Of course, the above conditions could be met by salary scores, regional scores, and additional scores based on Canadian school graduation or high-level job termination. However, many applicants who could not meet this score were given extra points by moving to a remote city, by changing jobs as a second-best option, or by moving to another province. Unfortunately, I've seen many giving up moving to Canada as well. However, the recent four to five months of upward movement has finally shifted downward since August 20, giving hope to BCPNP or EEBC applicants who have been waiting for their scores to go down the road. If you look at the trends from 2017 to the present, there was an average selection every two weeks in 2017 and 300-400 people were given an opportunity to apply for immigration. The average starting score for this time was kept at Skilled Worker: 75, International Graduate: 85 and Entry Level and Semi-skilled: 55. The following year, in 2018, the company scored a starting score of 85 points for Skilled Worker: slightly higher than 2017 by giving an average of 200-400 people a chance to apply for immigration, 90 for International Graduation, and 65 for Entry Level and Semi-skilled. If you look at 2019 PNP trends, the score was similar to that of 2018 from January to February, and as we drastically reduced the number of starters to 100-200 from March, the starting score was up to 110 for Skilled Worker: 105 for International Graduate and Semi-Skilled: 80. However, as we selected 527 people on August 20, we lost a lot of starting points, and as additional big starts continued on September 3, we lowered our starting points to Skilled Worker: 96 (EEBC): 93 (SI), International Gradate: 100 (EEBC: 98), Entry Level and Semi-skilled: 77 points. As announced by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, there are expected to be more invitations in 2019 than last year, so in the latter half of the year, about 500 people are expected to be invited. We can't exactly predict draw points for the future, but we expect it to go down to the same score range as in 2018. We recommend applicants preparing for EEBC or BCPNP to apply as soon as possible. If they do not have enough score for an invitation, I recommend you to raise them by English proficiency test scores, work experience, or salary scores.
Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot
Finally, Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot program (RNIP), which was briefly announced by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada earlier this year, is expected to be implemented soon. The RNIP program is designed to help small rural and northern communities attract foreign workers with diverse skills and provide permanent residency. According to figures provided by the Canadian Immigration Service, rural communities in Canada employ more than 4 million Canadians and account for nearly 30 percent of the country’s GDP. Therefore, the Canadian government intends to use the program to prevent rural and northern communities from coping with labor market shortages caused by falling birth rates, rising retirement rates and Canada’s population density. Cities that are eligible for rural and northern immigration can only be carried out in 11 selected cities. The selected cities were Thunder Bay, Vault Ste. Maire, Sudbury, Timmins and North Bay, with the largest number of cities selected in Canada, West Kootenay, Vernon, and Gretna- Rhineland-Altona-Plum in Manitoba. The rest of the cities were Claresholm in Alberta and Moose Jaw City in Saskatchewan. The criteria chosen for the above cities were based on the economic needs of each city, the resources required for pilot operations, and the presence of community partners. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship also added that other cities could be added in the future. The necessary conditions for RNIP's progress were not announced yet. According to the terms announced, six conditions must be met. You need to get a letter of recommendation from one of the 11 cities. The letter of recommendation will show you whether you are willing to live in the city or whether your experience or skills are helpful. You must have more than a year of experience in the last three years. At least 12 months of experience in Canada or abroad are recognized and paid for work is recognized. If you graduate from a school in Canada, you can apply without experience. Job Offer must be accepted by Canadian employers in 11 and job offer must meet full-time and minimum salary by occupation and region. In addition, job offer must be less than the same NOC level or level 1 of its experience. For example, if you receive Job Offer as NOC B, your experience must be NOC level A, B, or C. CLB 5, NOC C/D must have at least CLB4 if the language score is NOC 0. Graduation of at least high school is mandatory. Settlement funds are required for each family member. There are still many questions about RNIP, but they said the RNIP program could be carried out as early as 2019 and more details on the program are expected to be announced accordingly. Therefore, it is recommended that prospective immigrants who will immigrate through this new program to explore or look for jobs in advance.
