Funds Required for Canada Immigration – PR Visa

Canada is one of the most inexpensive countries in the world when it comes to immigration. Canada has a wide range of immigration pathways to choose from depending upon every immigrant’s preference and immigration needs. Generally speaking there are four immigration pathways into Canada. These are:

Federal Express Entry Program: This is the national immigration pathway and offers three categories of immigration –

  • Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP),
  • Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)
  • Canadian Experience Class (CEC).

Out of these, the FSWP is the most popular program for Indian applicants to Canada.

  • Provincial Nomination Program:  Canada has different- different PNP programmes when it comes to immigration . The advantage with applying for PNP is that if you are unable to get selected for Canada PR through Express Entry, then you can apply for PNP and if selected, you are guaranteed immigration. PNPs also have a slightly lesser eligibility criteria than the federal immigration program. So, if you want to move to a particular province like Alberta, Saskatchewan, British Columbia or any other, then PNP is a good option.
  • Quebec Skilled Worker Program: All PNPs except the QSWP operate through the Express Entry program. The province of Quebec has its own separate immigration platform. So, if you want to go to Quebec, then this is the immigration pathway you should apply through.
  • Occupation in-Demand: The Occupation in-Demand category is meant for those professionals whose occupation is in high-demand in Canada. Both the Federal Express Entry program as well as the Provincial Nomination Program offer OID categories. Before applying through this pathway for Canada PR, ensure your job is in high demand by looking at the NOC list for the particular province you want to immigrate to.

Now after understanding the various immigration ways to Canada, We will look at the cost of immigration through each category.
