Why Canada

Since its foundation, Canada has been a home to immigrants harboring various languages, cultures and faith in unity and peace. According to 2016 Statistics Canada, 22% of the population consists of immigrants mostly from G8 countries. One of Canada’s economic targets is receiving eligible immigrants proportionate to 1% of its population each year. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada announced that over 1.3 million new permanent residents (431.645 new permanent residents in 2022, 447.055 in 2023, and 451.000 in 2024) will be welcomed to Canada as part of 2022-2024 immigration levels plan.


Canada is the second largest country in the world, with its 10 million square meters of land. Three sides of it are surrounded by mass of water, Pacific Ocean on the west, Atlantic Ocean on the east, and Arctic Ocean on the north. In addition to having a total of 200.000 kms of shoreline, it contains great number of lakes and rivers. It has a long border in the south, and a short border with Alaska on the east, with its only neighbouring country USA.

Due to Canada’s wide lands, it is possible to experience various types of climates and landscapes. To name a few: high mountains, different types of forests, prairies, and tundra lands with frozen soil all throughout the year. In parallel to landscapes there are also various types of climates. Four full seasons of fall, winter, spring, and summer can be experienced in the most populated areas. Summer season lasts from June-September and based on the region daytime temperature fluctuates between 20 and 30 degrees. In many places, winter temperatures drop below 0 degrees, and feels quite cold. In the southwest British Columbia, (in cities of Vancouver and Victoria Island) it rarely drops below 0 degrees, and therefore instead of snow, receives more rain during winter months.

Depending on the location lived in, winter cold feels differently in Canada. The amount of cold felt in the first winter in Canada, depends on how the winter feels in one’s own country. It should be kept in mind that Canada is a developed country, and its buildings and cities are designed for harsh winter conditions. Therefore, if dressed for the winter, just enjoy the breathtaking winter scenes, winter sports, and winter activities specific to Canada.

There is more than one pathway programs to apply for Canadian permanent residency. There are over 60 immigration programs, that have different eligibility criteria.
To summarize the most common immigration programs, there are various economic programs for professionals, skilled workers, and entrepreneurs can apply at the Federal and Provincial levels.

International students can apply for a post graduation work permit (PGWP), upon graduating from a diploma or certificate program from a designated learning institution, which are identified by IRCC. PGWP holders can be eligible to apply for PR under the Canadian Experience Class, after one year of skilled Canadian work experience is completed under the PGWP. Canadian citizens or PR holders can sponsor their spouse/partner, dependent children who are under 22 years old, and parents. Moreover, there is an immigration program for childcare workers who can initially work under a work permit then may qualify to apply for PR.

It is a rigorous process to select the corresponding immigration program and preparing the application package that matches with the candidate’s experience, skills, and qualifications.

Applicant must be a PR status holder for at least 5 years, and must have lived minimum of 3 years (1095 days) out of 5 years in Canada. Opposite to a PR holder, a Canadian citizen is not required to live in Canada.
The Principal Applicant’s spouse/partner, dependent children under 22 years old and single can be included in the permanent residency application. Parents cannot be included, however once the applicant becomes a permanent resident of Canada and meets the eligibility requirements, parents can be sponsored, or they can apply for a supervisa, which is a multi entry visa designed for parents/grandparents of Canadian PRs and citizens.

In some cases, Canadian residency applications (such as, temporary resident visa, work permit, and study permit) seem to be refused without clear reasons, but this is usually the case when individuals apply on their own without receiving professional service. Canadian visa applications involve rigorous preparation of documents and information collection, which requires professional knowledge and experience of the system. Moreover, additional documents and a representative’s submission letter will strengthen the application.

When a Canadian visa application is rejected, the applicant has the options of submitting a new application or appealing to the refusal decision. Subsequent visa applications also have the risk of being refused again, as the applicant will be flagged in the system. It is crucial understanding the reasons behind the rejection decision and proving that the situation is clarified or changed. Working with a representative does not guarantee for an approval, however hiring a representative, who is an experienced professional will help achieving optimal results.

Canadian visa applications are refused for many reasons, some of which include:

  • Lack of travel history
  • Financial situation
  • Host’s financial situation in Canada
  • Current employment prospects in home country
  • Current employment situation
  • Family ties to Canada
  • Family ties to home country
  • Failing to state a genuine purpose of visit
  • Submitting documents that do not appear authentic
  • Illegal Status in country of residence
  • ​History of overstaying status on a previous visit to Canada or another country
  • Lack of documentation
  • Having a criminal record

A person can be a Canadian citizen by birth or by naturalization. To receive Canadian citizenship by birth, a person should either born in Canada, or have at least one Canadian parent at the time of birth. If a person is not a Canadian citizen by birth, the first step in naturalization is to receive an immigrant (permanent resident status) of Canada. Permanent residency applications can be made inside or outside Canada.

In Canada, only authorized representatives can charge for fees in providing counseling services, and representing an applicant in visa, immigration, or citizenship applications. Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) authorizes the following group of professionals in providing paid representation in all types of immigration related applications and counseling services:

IRCC states that they will not deal with representatives who charge a fee but are not authorized. If the applicant uses an unauthorized representative, in Canada or abroad, the IRCC may return the application or refuse it. Details can be found:

No one or any organization can guarantee an approval for a Canadian temporary resident visa, or permanent resident application. A Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant is not the decision-making body and cannot promise an approval for any type of application. IRCC makes the final decision on the applicant’s eligibility and admissibility to Canada.

We assure the following services for achieving optimal results of the applications made in our representation:

  • Assessing eligibility to program requirements
  • Providing a risk assessment
  • Guiding candidates on meeting program requirements
  • Preparing documents in full, based on the standards of country of residence and Canada
  • Strengthening the application with additional documents and representative’s submission letter

Following up on the application until finalized, and communicating with IRCC when it is necessary

Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant and the applicant can be in different cities or countries, or the RCIC can be in a different city to where the applicant plans to settle. As longs the tools and services are available for communicating and sharing information and documents, an RCIC can provide representation or counseling services from-to anywhere in the world to a person who wants to go to Canada. It is vitally important however to verify the licence of the representative hired, regardless of the professional look of the person, or website. This verification will protect you and your family from the immigration fraudsters for Canada. Moreover, we currently postponed face to face meetings that used to take place in our Ottawa Office due to Pandemic.

Therefore, you can consult us before making a final decision on which school and program to register.
