According to the latest Immigration Levels Plan, Canada requires nearly 14,500 people to settle and work there to slow down the sluggish economy hit hard by Covid-19.
About 1.4 million people of Indian origin live in Canada. That’s 1.4% of the Canadian population. In 2021, of the 4,05,999 people who obtained permanent residence in Canada, 1,27,933 or one-third of the population were Indians.
The economic class in Canada accounts for 60% of Indian immigrants. India is the largest source country for the Canadian economy. For Indians looking for jobs abroad, getting a job in Canada with permanent residency has become easier thanks to the new immigration scheme.
Canada Express Entry is easier and more stable than the US H1-B visa application process for Indians. Apart from the working class of the large economic entry group, students can now also work in Canada on a temporary visa and work permit.
Visas can also be processed for families, couples and grandparents. Education and healthcare are free for permanent residents and they can also start their own business in PR Canada.
Canada immigration goal: Canada needs people in these sectors
Immigration Minister Sean Fraser made it clear once again that Canada’s health, agriculture, fisheries and transportation sectors are completely dependent on immigrants. There are nearly 10,000 job vacancies in all these sectors. In addition, the country relies heavily on foreign workers to work in areas in which the native population shows almost no interest.
Immigrants coming from abroad, especially from third world countries to work in Canada, often find work in these sectors which increase their chances of obtaining permanent residence due to their economic contribution. Because of this, the Canadian government has been running different programs — Federal Skilled Workers Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program and Canadian Experience Class.
