Citizenship and Immigration Canada has been rolling out some great new programs for 2013 to help you immigrate, get Permanent Residency and succeed!
The Minister of Immigration and Multiculturalism, Jason Kenney, has been avidly pursuing the creation of immigration classes that help build and sustain the economy of Canada, and they will all start accepting applications at the beginning 2013.
Here are the new programs so far:
Canadian Experience Class
The Canadian Experience Class, while not a new program, will be accepting larger numbers of applicants in 2013. Non-immigrants who have worked for a certain amount of time in Canada can apply to become Permanent Residents so that they can continue to do their work for the country. Students who have graduated from certain degree programs can also apply for this kind of Permanent Residency.
Federal Skilled Trades Program
The Federal Skilled Trades Program began accepting applications on January 2, 2013. Designed to address labor shortages throughout the provinces, this program will accept three thousand applications from a variety of trades.
The application should be able to be processed within one year, another improvement of the immigration system has been faster processing times.
Entrepreneurs looking to invest their capital in Canada will find themselves planting in the most fertile of economic environments.
Though there has not been much information about the new Start-Up Visa program, it has a list of exciting investors backing it. Additional news and details about this program will be released throughout 2013.
