Let's Help Fulfill Your Canadian Dream (Permanent Residency)

Updated: Jul 24, 2023

Canada is currently one of the leading countries in the world when it comes to immigration and naturalizing immigrants within a very short period of time. Canada sees the best in immigrants, the value in their diverse experiences, rich cultures, perspectives and the skills that they bring with them. Canada integrates all of this into the Canadian society, and it has indeed built the nation which in turn boosted its economy.

Canada remains one of the few developed countries in the world that has developed both federal and provincial immigration schemes that allow immigrants to land in Canada as permanent residents, and after 3 years become eligible to apply for Canadian Citizenship.

We at Fikemi's Law Professional Corporation are Immigrants ourselves and have gone through the process. We understand how tasking and emotionally draining the process can be and we will make this process as seamless as possible for you. We are abreast with the continuously evolving Immigration laws & public policies, the various new streams being created for citizens and residents of specific countries and regions, and we tailor our advice during our consultation to fit clients specific needs.

There are several immigration routes available for permanent residency in Canada, the most common being Express Entry which was created since 2015 and comprised of a few streams. For the purpose of this post, we will only focus on 3 major streams namely":

  • The Provincial nominee program (PNP) run by each provinces in Canada,

  • Federal Skilled worker {FSW) stream which is for foreign citizens with non-Canadian degrees and work experience and,

  • The Canadian Experience Class (CEC) which is a stream for immigrants who are graduates of Canadian Institutions and acquired at least a year of relevant work experience.

For you to benefit from the Express Entry streams, you must have created an express entry profile and be entered into the express entry pool, then the system will auto calculate your CRS scores based on the information you have provided such as your age, level of education, marital status, language proficiency test results, work experience and other relevant factors. The points you get from the CRS include a core set of points up to 600 and a set of additional points of up to 600. Your total score will be out of 1,200. You can find out your CRS scores estimate by using this CRS calculator (This tool is intended solely for general guidance and reference purposes. It could be slightly different from the score eventually provided by the Express Entry electronic system).

The goal of IRCC is to grant decisions on each completed application within 6 months, however some may be earlier or take longer due to specific circumstances of each application.

Due to the Covid 19 Pandemic, the Federal skilled Worker has been on hold as no invitation to apply has been issued since 2020. Most of the ITAs issued has been for those within the CEC and PNP Stream. Canada has been inviting candidates with lower scores than usual from the CEC to apply and the lowest score being 75 during the historic February 13, 2021 draw that saw 27,332 CEC candidates issued an ITA.

Since Canada and most of the countries in the world have been ramping up the administration of covid vaccines, it is imminent that there will be a draw coming soon for the FSW stream. This statement is further supported by the new increase in the amount of proof of funds required by Skilled Immigrant candidates effective from July 15th, 2021.

All of these processes might seem like a daunting task, that is because it is a major decision and life changing at that to immigrate into another country, and leave your loved ones and home behind. This is why you need a knowledgeable professional on your side. At Fikemi's Law PC, we will take all the burden of application off your shoulders so you can focus on all other things that matters while we tailor our approach to get you what you need "The Canadian Dream" within reasonable time.
