Immigrating to a new country is never easy. There are many steps and documents to submit and many other obstacles to get through.
However, there are ways to make the process easier, especially if you plan on immigrating to Canada as a firefighter. Firefighters are part of the in-demand jobs list under the National Occupational Classification (NOC) 4312. This means that Canada needs you, and you can move even without a job offer.
Your application will go through the Express Entry System and the Provincial Nominee Program. So, if you are a firefighter, this is a big chance for you. In this article, we’re going to share how you can immigrate to Canada.
Immigrate through Express Entry
The Express Entry is an online system that manages applications for permanent residency in Canada. It is made of three federal immigration programs: the Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and Canadian Experience Class. It is one of the fastest and can take you little as six months.
Generally, you must first meet the Express Entry requirements. Then you need to create an online profile. Once you create your profile, you’ll have 60 days to complete and submit the requirements.
Afterwards, you will be placed into a pool of other eligible applicants and given a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. You need to meet or score higher than the CRS cut-off score of the specific draw to receive an Invitation To Apply (ITA). The invitation is essential because it means that you can apply for Canadian permanent residency.
Immigrate through the Provincial Nominee Program
The Provincial Nominee Program allows Canada’s government and local provinces to nominate immigrants who want to live and work in that particular province. To receive a nomination through the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), you need to choose a province and apply for a nomination. The provinces will select a candidate based on immigration and labour needs.
These are the 11 Provincial Nomination Programs in Canada:
- Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP)
- British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP)
- Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP)
- New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program (NW PNP)
- Newfoundland & Labrador Provincial Nominee Program (NL PNP)
- Northwest Territories Nominee Program (NTNP)
- Nova Scotia Provincial Nominee Program (NS PNP)
- Ontario Provincial Nominee Program (OINP)
- Prince Edward Island Provincial Nominee Program (PEI PNP)
- Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP)
- Yukon Nominee Program (YNP)/li>
- Quebec has its own immigration selection process and a points system that is different from other provinces.
To apply for the PNP, you can directly apply to a province or territory or through the Express Entry-linked process. When you directly apply, you will need to send your application through mail or courier. For the Express Entry Application Process, you can express your interest in a specific province or country when creating your online profile.
If you are a firefighter, this is your best time to immigrate to Canada. You don’t have to go through the arduous process of immigrating because you are on the NOC list. You would also be better paid with better benefits.
