Since 2011 when Bill C-31 was created with the goal of modifying the laws of refugees in Canada, there have been a lot of questions regarding the loss of the Canadian permanent residency for people that immigrated to Canada as refugee claimants.
One of the most common instances for people who are interested in studying in Canada is to enter the country as a visitor, to search for academic programs of their liking, and then trying to find a way to apply for a study permit.
Being a foreigner and having a job offer in Canada could open doors towards a permanent residency, however, the definition of a job offer can vary depending on which procedure you use.
An immigration process is more than just filling out forms. The interpretation and application of the law is a very important ability that is acquired throughout the years and with the corresponding studies.
The additional assessment of credentials that the department of Citizenship and Immigration to Canada has put in place after the recent changes to the system of permanent residency, has created a lot of confusion among applicants. The biggest confusion is when applicants think that this process is to revalidate their professional credentials and that by obtaining a letter from the agency that is in charge of this evaluation, applicants are granted the permission to practice in their fields once they immigrate to Canada.
Depending on the type of immigration process, there will usually be a list of documents that will need translation when it comes time to submit the application to Immigration Canada.
Invitation letters for purposes of visa applications and other immigration steps are an important element of the process.
Temporary foreign workers and international students who are entitled to work in Canada often wonder how to match their work permits with the social insurance number (“SIN”) in order to keep using it.
If you are planning to change your status as a student while being a visitor, it is recommended to do it as far in advance as possible trying to avoid the expense and the burden of having to file for two processes at the same time.
Now that Justin Trudeau is the Canadian Prime Minister the expectations of the people who travel or wish to travel to this country, or that are possible candidates for an immigration program have risen as a consequence of the promises that the politician made during his campaign.
