How to Move to Canada With Your Family – It’s true that there are numerous Canadian immigration schemes that make it possible to bring your family with you. Those already residing in Canada can seek to sponsor their spouse, children, parents, and grandparents thanks to the country’s robust family reunification policy.
Those applying to immigrate to Canada can often bring their loved ones along. This is not the case with all programs though, so make sure you know the application process for the one you want to join.
Families can be considered for admission to permanent immigration programs including Fast Entry and business immigration. Applicants may be able to bring their families with them on some temporary visa programs for work and study, although this is often decided on a case-by-case basis and is subject to the requirements of the specific program.
In order to participate in the Fast Entry Pool, registration is mandatory.
You must have a:
- Certificate of Medical Fitness
- Documentation of Completion of Schooling
- Certificate of No Criminal Record Check
- Money receipts
- Employment and income documentation, along with a passport photo, are acceptable forms of documentation to demonstrate previous employment and income.
- IELTS scores demonstrating your level of English proficiency.
In order to complete your express entry profile, you will need to provide the information shown below.
- Tutorial on Creating an Express Entry Account.
To obtain the necessary paperwork, please go to Canada’s official website.
In order for Canada to determine your qualification, they will request that you complete a questionnaire (Express Entry Questionnaire).
After completion of the Questionnaire, a unique reference number will be issued to you. To build your profile, go to the express entry form and fill it out completely.
Make a user account and fill out your profile information. If prompted, enter your reference key and proceed. Make sure to complete each section of the profile.
When prompted, select “Yes” if you have a work offer in Canada; otherwise, select “No” to skip this section.
Please confirm that you agree to all of the terms and conditions before submitting.
You’ll get a profile number and some other messages once your account has been set up successfully. At this point, you just have to wait for an invitation from a Canadian province.
Nominations for provincial offices in Canada are held regularly (every week or every month), so stay informed to ensure you’re invited. Check out our Canada immigration news page for the latest information on province nominations.
