Migrating To Canada 2022 

Canada is a developed country with high social security benefits, such as free medical care and free education.

Canada takes the top overall spot as the number one country in the world in the 2021 Best Countries Report.


After ranking second in 2020, Canada has surpassed Switzerland in the 2021 report followed by Japan, Germany, Switzerland, and Australia and that’s why many people from various communities across the world explore solutions to get land in Canada. 

Fortunately, they have several options to get in Canada immigration plans provided by IRCC (Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada).

If it is your dream to move to Canada, the best year to do that is 2022 and the reason is the favorable direction of the New Immigration Level Plan 2022-2024.

With the 2022-2024 Immigration Levels Plan, Canada will take in over 431,000 immigrants in 2022, higher than the 411,000 initially announced, and 447,055 in 2023, and 451,000 in 2024.

With the above all time high numbers, it shows that Canada is very ready to welcome more immigrants this year and they are dead serious about it as described by the the Honorable Sean Fraser, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, 

Here, we will discuss a few pathways to become a permanent resident of Canada. Though there are many ways to immigrate to Canada, the methods we will discuss today are Express Entry, the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), Quebec Immigration, and family sponsorship.

As we all know, however, 2022 has continued to pose additional obstacles, especially when it comes to foreign travel. 

Beginning on January 15, Canada will require most foreign travelers to be fully vaccinated, in addition to the existing requirement to receive a negative PCR test prior to your arrival.

Be sure to check the Canadian government website for the most up-to-date information regarding the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Getting back to the focus of the article, the first entryway into Canada that we will discuss is Express Entry.

Express Entry is the online system used to support the immigration of skilled workers to Canada.

The three programs that this scheme manages are:  

-Canadian Experience Class

-Federal Skilled Worker Program, and

-Federal Skilled Trades Program.

 Once you determine your eligibility for Express Entry, you may also be able to apply for a Provincial Nominee Program that aligns with Express Entry.

This is not required for all PNPs, though, as some are managed by the province’s own application system.

If it is determined that you are eligible, you will be scored and ranked in the Express Entry pool. Things such as a high language score, one or more years of skilled work experience, post-secondary education, and age (being between 20 and 29 years old) will increase your score.

You might also grab some additional points if you have a sibling that already lives in Canada, a valid Canadian job offer, or if you are proficient in the French language.

Only those with the highest scores will be able to apply through bi-weekly draws. This means that just because you’ve submitted an Express Entry profile doesn’t mean you are guaranteed an immigration application.

In 2021, the only ones who were allowed to apply were those who were eligible for the Canadian Experience Class or who had previously received a provincial nomination form a PNP. 

You also might end up waiting a bit longer than usual for your application to be processed. The standard processing time for an Express Entry application is six months, but in 2020 the average time jumped to nine months. 

Canada Provincial Nominee Program 

Each Canada Provincial Nominee Program has its own unique selection criteria.

The selection criteria and occupations vary from province/territory to province/territory. 

Most importantly, to be searched for nomination candidates need to create an Express Entry profile.

After that, you have to make a separate application to a PNP program.

You can receive a permanent residence invitation by applying through Express Entry directly and skipping the PNP process.


The Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) candidates are the only ones that received an invitation from the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

Family Class Sponsorship enables you to sponsor some family members or relatives if you become a Permanent Resident or Citizen of Canada.

Provided that you are at least 18 years old and you will provide for their needs upon arriving, also you should be a Citizen or a Permanent Resident.  

Eligibility For Family Class Sponsorship

•You should be at least 18 years of age

•You are a Canadian citizen or a Permanent Resident or if you are registered as an Indian under the Canadian Indian Act.

•You should not be receiving social assistance unless you receive government help as a disabled person.

•You should provide the basic needs of the one you are sponsoring. 

Whichever path you choose to follow, you will surely enjoy this country that is required to be the best place to live all over the world.
