Several recent announcements will make life easier for certain classes of immigrants, including international students and family members seeking a reunification sponsorship.
International students will gain more points under the Express Entry system, giving them an edge should they wish to become permanent residents.
In addition, the processing time for immigrants seeking to reunite with their families in Canada will be drastically reduced. The government also hopes to issue 20,000 parent and grandparent sponsorship visas.
Professionals with foreign degrees will also receive a boost, since the government is working on ways to speed up the accreditation process.
Finally, the government plans to admit up to 305,000 immigrants in 2016. If you want to take advantage of these changes, contact CIP today. We can help you maximize your chances of becoming one of Canada’s new immigrants this year.
