How To Plan Your Luxury Move To Canada

Considering all the economic, financial, political, and social reforms Canada is implementing, thousands of people are looking to plan a more luxurious life there. Moving to Canada can benefit your future, family, education, career, and job prospects. The healthcare in Canada is much better than in the United States, and the people are warmer, more polite, and more tolerant than the Americans.

Immigration to Canada from the USA should be thought out carefully. To start with, not all moves bankrupt you. You can continue living a luxurious life in Canada without compromising your standard of living, habits, and social structures. Both societies are highly well-developed, share similar interests, and have a substantial social system.

Let us look at how you can plan a luxury move to Canada:

Express Entry

Express Entry is the best way to migrate to Canada. This option is for permanent residency and allows foreigners to live and work in Canada with their families. On average, the processing times after accepting and submitting the ITA (Invitation To Apply) are 6 – 7 months.
The Express Entry application stream is made of three types:
Federal Skilled Worker Program
Canadian Experience Class
Federal Skilled Trades Program

Federal Skilled Worker (FSW) Program:

You are eligible for this program if you have a minimum of 1 year of skilled work experience or three years of management experience. You must also ensure all your language requirements in French or English are met and score well in the FSW selection grid. Once you meet these criteria, you are eligible to be in the points pool until you meet the minimum cut-off scores to receive an ITA.

Federal Skilled Trade (FST) Program:

You are eligible to apply in the FST category if you have a minimum two years of experience in a recognized skills trade. You must also meet the minimum requirements in English or French and have a Canadian qualification certificate to practice the skilled profession or a valid government-recognized job offer in Canada. If you meet these criteria, you can submit an ITA once your name comes up in the points pool.

Canadian Experience Class (CEC):

If you have been employed full-time in a skilled position in Canada on a work permit and meet the minimum French or English language requirements, you will be considered for the CEC. The process remains the same once you meet the eligibility criteria and submit your name to the pool.

It would help if you remembered that all these programs are score-based and highly competitive. Your credentials, work experience, and educational and financial documents must be perfect to meet all eligibility criteria and pass the verification. All candidates are assigned a points-based score and ranked against everyone else in the pool. Only the ones with the highest ranks can apply ahead. Apart from these, each Canadian Province also has additional skilled workers programs that fall under the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).

People wishing to move from the US to Canada need different work permits to live, work, and earn like residents.

NAFTA Permits:

The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is a long-standing economic agreement between Mexico, America, and Canada that helps facilitate trade and the movement of people and goods. NAFTA also issues work permits through the International Mobility Program to Americans with valid job offers in Canada. These American citizens can temporarily work and live in Canada without requiring the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA).

Employer-Specific Work Permit:

An employer-specific work permit wholly depends on a valid job offer from a Canadian employer. This work permit requires that the employer provide an LMIA, which states that the Canadian employer searched for a Canadian permanent resident or citizen to fill the job role but could not find suitable candidates, after which the job was offered to a foreign national. Anyone entering Canada on this visa will have to redo the work permit process in case of a job change at a later date.

Spousal Open Work Permit:

Suppose you have a spouse or common-law partner who is an international student in Canada or you are undergoing an inland sponsorship process. In that case, you could be applicable for a spousal open work permit. As a plus point, this visa is not employer-specific, so you can switch jobs later without worrying about your visa status.

There are other ways to enter Canada and begin living and working with your family. However, the process takes time, so you will have to undergo the application process and wait times to ensure everything is done correctly before shifting.
