Canada offers more than 100 immigration and visa programs for foreign nationals to either immigrate, study, or travel to the country. It is important to find the right Canadian visa that best fits your needs. The Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) is a popular program to immigrate through if you know where you want to move to in Canada. This program allows the government and provinces/territories to nominate foreign nationals to move to a particular province permanently based on their labor and immigration needs. Each province and territory has its own list of in-demand occupations. You can apply for a nomination directly to the province of your choice or through the Express Entry system.
Another way to immigrate to Canada is through a Study Permit. Canada is a great place to earn a globally recognized qualification and boost your career. To obtain a study permit, you first need to enrol at a Designated Learning Institute (DLI) with an approved COVID-19 readiness plan. You will also need a study visa and proof of funds to support yourself. The waiting time for a Canadian student visa is around 16 weeks, but if you are from one of the participating countries in the Student Direct Stream, you can receive your permit in as little as 20 calendar days.
