Skilled Immigration is your route to PR visa. The FSWP ‘Federal Skills Work Visa’ should be acquired first and the application can be filed for pr visa after a stay of three years. You can also get your Employer or any Relative (existing citizen of Canada) to sponsor your pr visa. First, the application has to be submitted to the Canadian Immigration Visa Office in the country where you reside. You can also submit the application to the Case Processing Centre at Canada. The application is first subjected to a rigorous ‘points test’. It is mandatory to score at least 100 points based on education, work experience and skills. Alternatively, one can take a bypass to this stringent process if he or she has a validated job offer under Arranged Employment by a legitimate Canadian Employer. Similarly a Provincial Nomination would also save you a lot of time and efforts.
‘Nominated Occupation’ is a big criterion on pr visa. CIC would allocate a certain quota on permanent residency and seeing the loads of applications it is very small. Each place would see a competition among thousands of potential candidates. Even a miniscule shortcoming would rule you out of the competition. It is therefore very important that you are sure of the Nominated Occupation on the list of occupations. This would otherwise be like shooting the arrow without the target. Also, you make sure that your skills and qualifications substantiate your claim on permanent residency.
