7 Factors for your Immigration Pathway to getting Canadian PR in 2023

Last Updated On : March 28 , 2023

Moving to a foreign nation is a significant adjustment for all elements of your life. It should only be done once you are thoroughly familiar with everything you need to know about that country. We'll cover everything there is to know about immigration to Canada in this post so you can make an informed choice.

[1] The Cost of Living in Canada:

If you plan to relocate to a foreign country, you must determine whether you can afford its living expenses. Although the cost of living in Canada varies significantly from city to city, we will provide estimates to sum it up in a single paragraph. Living in Canada with a family of four will run you anything from 4,500 to 5,000 CAD, but if you live alone, 1200 to 1300 CAD will do.

Students pay slightly less than non-students, about 800 to 900 CAD per month. Please note that the above expenditures do not include the living costs, ranging from 1,000 to CAD 1,500 for a one-bedroom apartment to 800 to CAD 900 for a student dormitory.

[2] Is Canada a good place to live?

Canada could be an excellent option to improve your lifestyle and receive more value for your money. There's no need to worry about not fitting in because Canada's diverse population is known for its friendliness. Canada's employment possibilities and educational systems are better than most other nations. Some individuals may find cities like Vancouver and Toronto a little pricey. However, it is all worthwhile if you can afford it.
Canada is a beautiful and safe country with a high average life satisfaction ranking, making it an excellent option for students and professionals.

[3] Who is Eligible to Apply to Canada?

If you are a worker, you must have an offer letter from a Canadian business; if you are a student, you must have a secured acceptance letter from a Canadian university. But things become a little trickier if you want to obtain a PR. The basic requirements include having a significant amount of work experience in Canada or a postgraduate degree from Canada plus work experience with an acceptable IELTS score and the required number of points.

[4] What is the easiest way to immigrate to Canada?

The easiest ways to immigrate to Canada can be different for different people. For example, the Express Entry program may be right for you if you are a skilled worker. Provincial Nominee Programs are for you if your profile needs to be stronger or you have a low IELTS score. If you speak French well, the Quebec Experience Program is for you. It is wise to seek professional assistance and select the ideal program because the best programs differ from person to person.

[5] What is the Maximum Age to Immigrate to Canada?

There is no particular restriction on applicants' ages. However, those over 45 receive no points at all in the age section of the Express Entry Program. In contrast, those over 30 lose some of their effectiveness. However, it does not mean that older people cannot immigrate to Canada. Although applicants over 55 are exempt from providing proof of language skills, they must still appear for the interview for identity verification purposes.

[6] How Much Money is needed for Immigrating to Canada?

IRCC requires you to furnish proof of adequate funds to confirm that you have enough money to come and settle in Canada.
However, some applicants do not need to do the same if:

  • ● They are applying under the Canadian Express Class program.
  • ● They have a valid work permit and a job offer in Canada, even if they are not applying through the Canadian Express Class program.

For those who have to provide evidence of funds, the amount to present if you travel alone is 13,310 CAD. However, if you travel with additional family members, the price will increase slightly based on the number of family members. You will, on average, require an extra 3586 CAD per family member in addition to the 13310 CAD per the latest guidelines.

[7] What is the minimum IELTS score required for immigration to Canada?

A minimum score of 6.0 in all 4 sections is required to be eligible to apply if you are using the Express Entry Program. However, the score requirements are lower for several other programs, particularly the PNPs, which you may wish to consider if your IELTS score is low.
