Canada Visa. New Changes Related To The Time Of Expectation

Canada Visa .

NEW CHANGES RELATED TO THE TIME OF EXPECTATION.

The Immigration Office has just announced new periods for examining some of the immigration applications. The change consists in forecasting the future process time and not relying on statistical data from the past. The introduction of new orientation dates will apply to applications submitted from July 31, 2018. In the press release of 09 August 2018, it was announced that the new processing periods will apply to the following applications for permanent residence:

• sponsoring parents and grandparents – 20 to 24 months,

• Provincial Nominations (outside the Express Entry system) – 15 to 19 months,

• Skilled Workers in Quebec – 15 to 17 months,

• Applications related to starting a business in Canada – 12 to 16 months,

• Humanitarian applications – 22 to 36 months.

The expected time of considering the above applications applies to standard applications (without any complications or inaccuracies). The Immigration Office has announced monthly updates of these periods to reflect real time as accurately as possible. So what is the change and what does this mean for the person submitting the application?

Earlier, before the introduced change, the Immigration Office relied on statistical data from the past, ie it took into account the number of applications submitted in the previous year and estimated the average time of processing 80% of applications. The new forecasting will depend on the number of applications currently submitted for consideration and how quickly the Office deals with their processing.

The time of consideration begins on the date of receipt by the Office of a complete package of documents and ends with the moment the decision is issued. If the application has been submitted in a paper version (mailing or courier), the time is counted from the day it hits the office. If, however, the applicant decides to send the application electronically (through the immigration portal), he can count on faster delivery, because it is counted from the moment of electronic data transmission.

The new changes are aimed at improving the office’s operation and more efficient service for applicants wishing to settle permanently in Canada. Of course, the processing time is only approximate and applies to most standard applications.

Only applications prepared in a complete manner, containing all the necessary elements, documents and information, can count on consideration within the prescribed dates. Applications submitted in an incomplete form may encounter delays or, worse, the return of the entire document package.

We recommend contacting our office, which will professionally assess your chances for emigration programs, prepare a set of documents and take care of the formal side. https://www.itscanadatime.com/landing/#5a453c87af851%20

Top Tips from people who have passed it










FREE Canadian Citizenship Practice Test & Driving Practice Test since 2001









Back to Canadian Citizenship Test Guide


Whether you have already applied (or are thinking of applying) for Canadian citizenship, know that one of the final stages of the procedure is writing the
“Canadian Citizenship Test”. Do not take this test lightly!


Dominion Institute’s research paper shows that

45%

of Canadians would actually

FAIL

the test if they had to write it now.


Here are some very useful tips that we have gathered from people who have passed the test before you.
We hope you will find them useful while preparing for this Canadian Citizenship test.


  • Read the
    Canadian Citizenship Test Guide
    thoroughly.
    It is designed to systematically get you ready for with the actual test.

    We recommend a 3-step approach.
    Practice
    ,
    Prepare
    and Test.

    I was recommended your website by a colleague and let me tell you the way you guyz have organized the test preparation
    plan is unique and clear. I had no problem following it and I felt so confident. The test were designed for the chapters from the study guide
    and each questions was traced back to its location in Study Guide. I have to say you have put a lot of effort on this site.
    I passed just this past January and I have my oath scheduled this month. I thank
    my stars that I found your site.
    Samuel J, France

  • We have 16 test(s) and more than 500 Practice Questions prepared from Discover Canada Guide book and new questions are added every day.
    Many of our users find that a great way to remember the study guide information is to go through the
    practice questions
    again and again.


    I find that the practice questions you have are very thorough and very well explained. I especially loved how you have mapped the answers to the Discover
    Canada study guide and actually tell which section has the explanation about it. Timed Simulated test is another great option. I took it many times and it
    gave me an idea of the time. Summary in the end is very clear and helpful. Thank you!
    Laura, Calgary

  • As the exam paper is generally designed for the country-wide purpose,
    IRCC (formerly CIC) does not have enough resource to localize the test questions. So we suggest to focus more on general knowledge of Canada and
    spend less time on provincial or municipal knowledge.
    However note that we do not want you to completely let go of that area.
    Please note that the study guide
    “Discover Canada” suggests you should know about the province and local city you live in.
    It is a different story in Interview however. So in case of interview,
    prepare for provincial/Federal as well.
  • Take it easy and don’t memorize officers’ names other than the Prime Minister and the Governor General of Canada.
    The local government officers such as MPs, MLAs are changing quite often, it is hard to update this information in the test paper
    as frequent as it changes.
    For example, suppose the MP in a district has changed, and there is a citizenship test the next day.
    We don’t think that IRCC (formerly CIC) has enough time to update the question.
    Just make sure to remember two names: the PM and the Governor General of Canada. Also make sure you know your provincial symbols and mottos.







Citizenship Test Tips


What language should my supporting documents be in?
…..

Unless CIC tells you otherwise, all supporting documents must be in English or French.


If it is not in English or French, you must send it with:


– the English or French translation and

– an affidavit from the person who completed the translation and

– a certified photocopy of the original document









  • Some questions will appear too easy in our practice tests. It is normal. In the real test, some questions will be very easy, too.
    Alternatively, there will be some questions that will be hard for you
    to understand even though you have read the whole Discover Canada. However if you have gone through
    16 our
    practice test(s)
    , we guarantee that you will not face that problem. The reason is that there is a lot of information included in Discover Canada
    and some of them are in between the line. Our tests are designed to cover the material in great details.
  • Again we can stress enough Practice,
    Practice and
    Practice. Take advantage of free tests that cover each and every
    chapter of Discover Canada Study Guide. You do not need to spend money to be confident of your preparation.

    Thank you so much for your efforts! I went through your practices tests and in the actual test it took me about 10 minutes. I am
    so glad I didn’t spent my precious money to buy some practice tests off the internet. I especially love your interactive blog. You explained the
    confusion around the bay question so well. Thank you so much for your contributions.
    Jay, India

  • In your letter, you will be given a time. Be certain that you leave enough room for any road delays or emergencies because you will not be
    admitted to the center even if you are few minutes late. Visit the test center prior to the date or use Google map to familiarize yourself
    with the area where the test is taking place.
  • Be prepared to spend a lot of time for the actual test. Generally the whole procedure can take some 3-4 hours.
    If you work, take at least half a day off. The actual test time is only 30 minutes but if you have practiced enough no reason you can’t
    complete it in 10-15 minutes.
  • Before the test starts, the facilitators need to carefully check each person’s documents so it will take around 2 hours right there.
  • The test will be in one of the official language English or French (Your preferred language). For many reason that can be an added complication,
    if you are not fluent enough with the language. But be very thorough and attentive when reading the questions.
  • It is not unusual to see more than 400 people write the test at the same time.
  • Make sure all the required documents are with you. Even better, bring as many as you can and always bring originals.
    because if there is an issue with legal document or If you forget a certain document, e.g., a Birth Certificate – which is required in SOME cases – you
    will not be admitted to the test and will have to wait for another invitation – which can take months.
  • You will NOT be allowed to use the manual/guide “Discover Canada”.

Manitoba Immigration – Canada Immigration and Visa Information. Canadian Immigration Services and Free Online Evaluation.

The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) selects candidates for Manitoba immigration based on the province’s specific economic needs.

The MPNP has been overhauled for 2018, and reorganized around four main streams.

Those streams are:

  • Skilled Worker in Manitoba Stream
  • Skilled Worker Overseas Stream
  • International Education Stream
  • Business Investor Stream

The aim of the overhaul is to make the program more flexible to Manitoba’s labour market and broader economic priorities. Those priorities are communicated to candidates via a regularly updated list of In-Demand Occupations.

  • Second Manitoba Draw In 3 Days Taps Express Entry Pool
  • Overseas Skilled Workers The Focus Of Latest Manitoba Draw
  • Manitoba Immigration Issues Invitations To Apply To Nearly 600 Candidates
  • Hundreds More Skilled Workers Invited To Apply For Manitoba Immigration

Manitoba Immigration Draws

  • Full List of 2018 MPNP Draws
  • Full List of 2017 MPNP Draws

Each Manitoba immigration stream is outlined below.

1. Skilled Worker in Manitoba Stream

The Skilled Worker in Manitoba Stream (SWM) is based on the specific needs of Manitoba employers. SWM selects foreign-trained workers with the required skills and nominates them for Canada permanent residence. The stream prioritizes candidates with a strong attachment to Manitoba, with two pathways to Manitoba immigration.

a) Manitoba Work Experience Pathway

For applicants currently working in Manitoba on temporary work permits, through the Temporary Foreign Worker Program or as international graduates from any province. Candidates do not need to be working in In-Demand Occupations.

b) Employer Direct Recruitment Pathway

For applicants from overseas with job offers from approved Manitoba employers.

2. Skilled Worker Overseas Stream

The Skilled Worker Overseas Stream (SWO) includes both a dedicated Canada Express Entry Pathway and a direct provincial pathway.

It is aimed at international skilled workers with skills and training in Manitoba’s In-Demand Occupations. Priority is given to applicants and spouses with close family connections, plus the language proficiency, training and experience to find jobs quickly.

a) Manitoba Express Entry Pathway

For international candidates eligible under another MPNP stream, who also meet Express Entry criteria and have an active Express Entry profile. Candidates need skills, training and experience in one of Manitoba’s In-Demand Occupations, and a strong family connection to the province.

b) Human Capital Pathway

For international skilled workers with skills, training and experience in one of Manitoba’s In-Demand Occupations. Candidates must demonstrate potential to find employment soon after they arrive in Manitoba.

3. International Education Stream

The International Education Stream (IES) is dedicated to international graduates from Manitoba colleges and universities. Under IES, candidates are no longer required to work for six months in their field before applying for an MPNP nomination. It has one pathway:

a) Career Employment Pathway

The IES Career Employment Pathway will expedite nomination for international graduates in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM subjects, with internships contributing to innovation. International graduate candidates with job offers in an In-Demand Occupation aligned with their qualification no longer have to work for six months before applying,

4. Business Investor Stream

The Business Investor Stream is aimed at qualified international business investors and entrepreneurs. Candidates are initially issued with a temporary work permit, and must have the intent and ability to start or purchase a business in Manitoba within two years of arrival. The stream abolishes a previous requirement for a $100,000 deposit with the Manitoba government. There are pathways for entrepreneurs and for farm investors.

a) Entrepreneur Pathway

For applicants wanting to open a business in Manitoba. Candidates are initially issued with a temporary work permit. They are nominated for permanent residence after establishing a business meeting the conditions of a Business Performance Agreement. Priority is given to candidates starting businesses outside Winnipeg.

b) Farm Investor Pathway

For applicants wanting to open and operate a farm in rural Manitoba. Candidates are initially issued with a temporary work permit. They are nominated for permanent residence after establishing a business meeting the conditions of a Business Performance Agreement.

Interested employers: Kindly contact us here to receive further information.

river. The first use of “Canada” as an official name came in 1791 when the

“Ontario Regional Office (Toronto)
The Ontario Regional Office (ORO) of the Department of Justice represents the federal government in a wide variety of matters affecting departments and agencies of the Government of Canada that operate within the Province of Ontario.

Litigation is the primary but not exclusive function of the ORO. Approximately 5% of our lawyers are solicitors who work in the Business, Aboriginal and Regulatory sections of the office. The majority of our 348 lawyers practice law in the courtrooms or tribunals of Ontario in matters ranging from criminal prosecutions for importing narcotics to multi million-dollar civil actions in negligence, from important public issues involving the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms to tax appeals involving the major corporations of this province. The work is of top quality and is often high profile. Our opponents are generally the major law firms of this city. The active inventory of more than twenty thousand cases in this office means that lawyers are given a great degree of independence and responsibility early in their careers.” [quote 2009.06.01 from www.justice.gc.ca…ontario]

“Immigration Section [Ontario Regional Office (ORO) of the Dept. of Justice Canada]

The lawyers in this section handle immigration-related litigation on behalf of the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration. This responsibility includes responding to applications filed in the Federal Court of Canada by refugee claimants and permanent residents seeking judicial review of decisions taken by the Immigration Refugee Board and by immigration officers; appearing before administrative tribunals to address constitutional issues; and opposing interlocutory injunctions in which the applicant is seeking a stay of a deportation order. The litigation also includes appeals in the Federal Court of Appeal as well as in the Ontario Superior Court and the Supreme Court of Canada.

The lawyers in this section play a key role in the development of Immigration Law in Canada. The following Supreme Court of Canada cases (among others) emanated from this section: Singh (1985), Chiarelli (1991), Ward (1993), Dehghani (1995), Pushpanathan (1998), Baker (1999) and Suresh (2001 – decision pending). …”[quote 2009.06.01 from www.justice.gc.ca…ontario]
