What are the Eligibility Requirements to Migrate to Canada from Dubai?

Planning to move to Canada permanently from Dubai? No doubt Canada offers the best job opportunities. It is one of the best places to live in a peaceful and safe environment.

Canada’s culturally diverse population is friendly and welcoming for the immigrants who wish to settle and build a life in Canada.

Especially in recent years, Canada is dealing with the gap between the low birth rate and the large aging population. Hence, Canada is creating more job opportunities and encouraging immigrants to take up skilled jobs and settle in Canada.

The Canadian government offers a lot of opportunities for skilled professionals in various sectors like IT, medicine, civil engineering, and more. In fact, the country being a leader in information technology and research-oriented industries requires skilled professionals to take up these opportunities. Hence, the country has opened its doors to immigrants who are looking to live, work and settle in Canada.

For Canada immigration, there are various visa programs for skilled workers.

  • Canada Express Entry
  • Federal Skilled Worker Program
  • Provincial Nominee Program
  • Federal Skilled Trades Program
  • Canadian Experience Class (CEC)

While Canada Express Entry is one of the most popular programs to get PR status in Canada.

Canada Express Entry and all other programs are based on eligibility points. One must get adequate points in each criterion to become eligible for Canada Express Entry and other visa programs.

The main eligibility criteria for which you will be assessed are 

  • Age
  • Education
  • Work experience
  • Language proficiency
  • Adaptability
  • Arranged Employment
  • Quebec Skilled Workers Program:

Quebec is a province in Canada and its official language is French. So, skilled workers in UAE, who speak French or know French and want to move as permanent residents to Quebec must apply through Quebec Skilled Workers Program.

The Quebec Skilled Worker Program is also a  points-based program, which works independently from the Canadian government’s federal programs for skilled workers. Successful applicants can bring family members to Quebec. A job offer is not required in this case.

Provincial Nominee Program is yet another popular PR program to move Canada permanently.

  • Provincial Nominee Program

As the name suggests, PNP involves provinces and territories in Canada nominating skilled workers for PR visas. And allow them to settle in respective provinces with the help of PNP.

Potential immigrants under PNP must have the necessary educational background, work experience, and language proficiency to become eligible for the program. To qualify under PNP, immigrants must have a nomination from a Canadian territory or a province.

  • Federal Skilled Worker Program

The Federal Skilled Worker Program is for foreign workers who already have work experience in a certain field and wish to migrate to Canada in search of a job. 

The minimum requirements for the Federal Skilled Worker Program include considerable work experience as a skilled professional, educational qualification, and language proficiency. Similar to the Canada Express Entry Program, the Federal Skilled Workers Program also works on a points-based system and requires 67 passing marks to become eligible for the visa. The criteria for eligibility are the same as the Express Entry Program.

Likewise, the Federal Skilled Trades Program and Canadian Experience Class (CEC) visa program also work similarly. However, each visa program takes a different processing time to complete and issue a PR visa for the immigrant.

So, if you are a skilled worker in UAE and want to move to Canada permanently, then understand the requirements for a PR visa and the process before applying for the same. In case you find it difficult to manage, you can also depend on the best immigration consultants like Y-Axis Dubai to make your visa processing easier and get the visa without hassle.
