In 2019, all of Alberta’s provincial nominations through AINP went to candidates whose CRS score in the Express Entry pool was between 300-400. This makes Alberta an ideal province for those with low scores. Having said that, as of Jan 31, there are 76,817 candidates with the CRS in the range of 300-400 points while Alberta only nominated 6,000 candidates in 2019, which is almost only 8% of 76,817. So, which 8% or less of the candidates have a good probability of being nominated by Alberta in 2020? Based on the past trend here’s a look at the top occupations for immigrants to Alberta in 2019.

The list below shows Permanent Residents 15 years of age or older by Intended Occupation (4-Digit NOC 2011) who immigrated to Alberta between Jan-Dec 2019.

1,765 Food Service Supervisors immigrated to the province, topping the list out of more than 200 occupations. They were followed by 870 Retail Sales Supervisors. While Transport truck drivers came in third with a number of 625.

Note, this list contains the overall number of immigrants, not just those from Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP).

Licensing Requirements for some occupations

There are some occupations which have additional licensing requirements for SINP. For the Express Entry Federal Skilled Worker program most professionals can immigrate to Canada without provincial licensing. They need to obtain their license after immigrating to Canada and before they start practicing in their occupation. But for SINP, one needs to meet the licensing requirements BEFORE one can be nominated by Saskatchewan. This can be a major road block for some applicants. Here is the list of occupations which have licensing requirements.

Should you immigrate to Canada?

Benefits of living in Canada

If you are already sure about immigrating to Canada then feel free to skip this post. If, however, you are still weighing in different options, let’s see if I can shed some light on why Canada could probably be a good option for you.

People & Culture

Canada is probably the most diverse country in the world. 1 in every 5 Canadians is a “visible minority”, a term used by Canadians as “persons, other than aboriginal peoples, who are non-Caucasian in race or non-white in color”. Thus you won’t feel that you’ve entered a completely difference place where everyone looks different from where you used to live. You will find people speaking a lot of different languages, coming from varied cultures, having different races and religions, all living together in peace and learning from one another.

There are some cities that are more diverse than others. For example, in the Greater Toronto Area, there is a lot of diversity. In Brampton, a city within the GTA, there are a lot of immigrants from India. In Mississauga, there are a of of immigrants from China, Middle East, India & Pakistan. Similarly in Milton there is a lot of Pakistani immigrants.

Top mother tongues spoken in Canada as per census 2016.

The above chart shows the top 10 mother tongues spoken in Canada as per the Census conducted in 2016. While 19.4 million people’s mother tongue was English, there were 11 million people who were non-native English speakers in terms of their mother tongue. This represents a huge diversity.

Healthcare

Most healthcare services in Canada are funded by the government, this includes treatment in hospitals, visit to your physicians etc. Every Canadian Citizenship and Permanent Resident enjoys this free healthcare, which is funded by taxpayer’s money.

The graph below life satisfaction for Canadians aged 12 and older. Most fall in the Very Satisfied or Satisfied category.

Education

In 2016, more than half of the Canadians (54%) aged 25 – 64 had either a College or University degree. Canadians enjoy one of the best educational systems in the world. Not only that, education till high school is free and is covered by taxpayer’s money. The chart below shows the split of Education among Canadians. Only about 10% didn’t have a certificate, diploma or degree.

Nature

Canada is the 2nd largest country in the world in terms of land area. And such a big area has a lot of spectacular sites to behold. Niagara falls is one famous example. But there are many other beautiful water falls, huge national and provincial parks, gardens, farms and conservatories throughout Canada. Not the mention the magnificent rocky mountains.

In terms of forests, 35% or one third of Canada is covered by Forests. 9% of the world’s forests are in Canada. Isn’t that amazing? The info-graphic below has more information. So, Canada is definitely a great destination for nature lovers, specially in summer.

Entertainment & Lifestyle

There are a lot of entertainment options for all ages. From state of the art cinemas to huge shopping centers, sports stadiums, community centers, fitness clubs, etc. You can never be bored with so many options to have an active and enjoyable lifestyle. There are a lot of restaurants from many different cultures of the world, ranging from east to west.

By the way, having a Canadian passport once you become a Canadian citizen, also enables you to travel to a 183 of countries of the world visa free. According to CNN Travel, Canada’s passport ranks 6th in the world in this regard. This is applicable to a Canadian citizen, not a PR though. Wondering what the difference is between the two? Watch a short video below where I explain this.

Economy

Canada is a strong industrialized country and thus Canadians enjoy a high quality of life. According to the World Bank in 2017, Canada’s GDP per Capital was 45,000 USD. The median household income after tax deduction for 2016 was 57,000. Overall GDP for 2018 was 1.7 Trillion US Dollars, putting Canada in the top 10 countries. Wondering if newcomers can benefit from this healthy economy and find employment? I asked this question to a friend who works at a global FMCG, see what he had to say.

Canada’s unemployment rate for 2018 has been the lowest in 45 years. It was 5.59% in 1973 and is 5.83% in 2018. On the Social Progress Index, (which measures social and environmental components, such as nutrition and basic medical care, access to information and communications, levels of tolerance and inclusion and the degree of personal freedoms and choice, among many others. Overall, the index includes 50 measures) Canada falls on Tier 1 countries, right up there with Scandinavian countries.

In conclusion, Canada is a wonderful place to live in the above mentioned factors are important for you. The immigration system is getting more and more competitive and it probably will only get more tough in the time to come. So, if you really want to immigrate, it’s best to act now.

Sincerely,

Do new immigrants get jobs?

jobs_in_canada_for_immigrants

A question on the mind of most aspiring immigrants is whether or not they will get a job after landing in Canada. This can be quite a daunting thought, after all, most immigrants spend years in a stable job before immigrating, that’s the whole basis for their Economic or Skilled immigration. That’s why they were chosen for immigration since they were “good” workers. But after moving into a new country, new culture, new job market, facing new challenges, how much do new immigrants have to struggle to find jobs?

I believe in facts rather than opinions and here’s an interesting fact for you. According to Statistics Canada, the federal research agency of Canada, 78.9% of newcomers ages 25-54 are currently in the Canadian workforce. This numbers suggests as a whole there are good prospects for new immigrants in Canada. But what about Canadian born citizens? Does this number vary by much for them? Do Canadian born citizens have a huge edge over newcomes when it comes to being employed? Luckily, we have a number for that too, and it is 84%. Just a difference of 5.1% which is not bad actually.

In 2017, the unemployment rate for working-age immigrants was 6.4%, which is the lowest since this tracking began in 2006. So, be prepared to give your best and make a decision if this percentage seems as reasonable to you as it seems to us.

Why should you hire an RCIC?

Have you ever been troubled with the decision of whether or not to hire an immigration consultant or just apply by yourself? Here are a few points that you might want to consider before making this important call.

  1. Not all “consultants” are created equal. 

There are a lot of “ghost” consultants out there, who operate without having a license from the Regulatory body of immigration consultants known as ICCRC or Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council. Since they do not have the license, this means that they are not allowed to give immigration advice for a fee or consideration. If they do, it is a serious crime punishable by fine and jail time. Also, this means that there is no check and balance on them and they can treat the clients however they like without any accountability. RCICs as the title suggests are Regulated by ICCRC and follow a certain code professionally.

2. RCICs have gone through a process

The Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants or RCICs become consultants after going through a rigorous process, where they study immigration law through one of the designated and ICCRC approved Canadian colleges, and go through a number of discussions, assignments, exams before they obtain their license. Going through this intensive process builds a lot of knowledge related to Canadian immigration law instead of just having tribal knowledge. This ensures that the clients have a maximum chance of success when their complete application package is put forth to IRCC.

3. Calculate the ROI

Sure, you can save some money by applying yourself. And there is nothing wrong with that. In fact, this makes no difference to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) whether you apply yourself or hire a consultant. But say you do hire an RCIC just to make sure everything is done as best as it can be, and you get your Canadian visa, wouldn’t that justify the cost? If you believe that paying this fee justifies you having peace of mind, confidence and saving your time, then go ahead and work with an RCIC.
