Canada Immigration Eligibility
Do I qualify for Canadian permanent resident status?
In order to find out if you qualify, refer to our guide on the current
Canadian immigration Selection Criteria, or complete a free eligibility
report which will tell you your score, and will give you the opportunity
to obtain a detailed scoring report at no charge.
Does my spouse or partner and children have to qualify independently?
No, immediate family members such as a spouse, common-law partner, and dependent
children can be included in your application. Such family members will not be
required to separately qualify as long as the principal applicant meets the 67 point pass mark.
What is the best way of ensuring success of my case?
The best way to make sure that you submit a successful application is to
ensure that your estimated score is accurate, and to document all aspects
of your application thoroughly. Emigrant.ca provides its members with a detailed
report prior to the submission of their case, verifying that the application
information supports a score which will enable them to succeed in the Canada
immigration process. In addition, members are provided with personalized
documentation reports which advise them on the complete application materials
that they should submit to support the information being submitted.
What is the National Occupational Classification (NOC)?
The National Occupational Classification provides definitions of all
occupations which are eligible, as well as those occupations which are
considered ineligible for immigration to Canada in the skilled worker program
as a principal applicant. When you complete your free instant assessment,
Emigrant.ca provides you with the opportunity to obtain a detailed assessment
report which contains the NOC codes and definitions for the occupation or occupations
that you have referred to having experience in. Knowing these NOC codes and
definitions can be critical to submitting an accurate Personal History, and for
drafting of appropriate letters of reference which can optimize your chance of
getting a selection interview waived.
