With social distancing and plenty of other rules to limit the spread of COVID-19, transitioning from an active lifestyle to a more home-constrained one can be a massive leap for some. Many people end up being unproductive, lying back on their beds or sofas and wasting their days away watching TV.
If you been planning to enter Canada but feel like you cannot do much during this pandemic, then you might be happy to learn that the situation isn’t helpless. You do not have to stay unproductive even if you are isolated from everyone else. Here are a few things you can do to improve your Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) to boost your chances of receiving an invitation to come and live in Canada.
1. Gather references
References for immigration are documents that show people your work experience, particularly those that can be considered as skilled labour. You need to prove that you have at least six years of performing skilled labour within the previous ten years.
These references should include specific information about the nature of your past work. Make sure they indicate your per-week salary, work hours, job title, employment date, and the list of tasks assigned to your position.
2. Collect the necessary documents
References are not the only documents you will need to provide to the CIC (Immigration Refugee and Citizenship Canada). There are plenty of other materials, such as your passport and birth certificate, depending on your situation.
If you want to include the fact that you have parents or siblings staying in Canada, you will need to provide sufficient documentation to prove their status in Canada and their relation to you. You might need to provide other requirements as well, depending on your application.
With that said, you do not need to prepare absolutely everything before receiving your invitation. That is because some of these documents, such as police clearance, can expire before you receive any paperwork. For documents like these, you will have to wait until you are asked to provide them.
3. Improve your English
One of the best ways to improve your chances of landing an invitation is to improve your English. Many language centers are currently closed because of the pandemic, but the internet gives you access to plenty of online courses to improve your English proficiency.
As for the tests to include in your application, Canadian immigration will only accept TEF, IELTS, or CELPIP exams. It pays to learn what you can expect from these tests to help you study for them properly.
By thoroughly preparing yourself in all these departments, you will keep yourself productive and be ready to send in your application once you receive an invitation. More importantly, being prepared for these will ensure that you enjoy the best CRS score possible, giving you the highest chance of finally earning that Canadian permanent residence status you have always longed for.
If you are having trouble with any of these, be sure to contact a Canadian immigration consultant to help you out! They will save you plenty of time and headaches.
