In the past, especially in 2017, an unprecedented number of Indian students chose to move to Canada for higher education. In this way, not only has the application fee for Canadian universities increased this academic year but the immigration links between India and Canada have also been strengthened. According to the Canada Gujurati News, in the upcoming years, next 10 years, more international students, not only from India but also from all over the world will study and live in this maple country.
To their surprise, many students who moved to Canada the previous year for higher education and hope to return to their home country after completing their studies changed their minds, applied for a new visa, and expressed interest in settling in Canada. CBIE found that from 2008 to 2016, the number of students staying in Canada after completing their education program doubled.
In 2008, approximately 128,000 students moved to Canada with study permits. By the end of 2016, the number had soared to more than 400,000; this means that Canada is becoming more and more popular with students.
There is no doubt that the vibrant lifestyle offered by the city, the humble attitude of people, and the multicultural diversity offered by the country make this place home. However, in the survey, the students marked Canadian permanent residence as the main reason they want to stay in Canada; emphasizing the following aspects of Canadian public relations are most attractive to them.
Improve the immigration process
Most students said that the immigration process in this country is simple. With the recent changes in Canada’s express entry system, economic immigration has become easier for applicants, especially students with international education. The system, instead of focusing on the needs of the job, but emphasizing the applicant’s education quality, language skills and work experience gained.
In addition, it was recently announced that applicants would receive an additional 15-30 points for Canadian post-secondary education, which ultimately simplified the process of obtaining permanent residency and became a boon.
Postgraduate work plan
After high-quality education, students strive to gain world-renowned work experience. Working in Canada is easy to receive international education. Many students say that thanks to the graduate work program, this makes it easier. Of course, the plan is nothing more than the master key for students to unlock their permanent home in Canada. Graduates in Canada can immediately apply for a graduate work permit and work for any employer.
Since employers do not need to obtain LMIA to hire this candidate, it turns out that this is the easiest way for both of them to achieve their goals. In addition, the program allows the privilege of taking higher courses while working for a Canadian employer. In short, the work experience of earning an additional degree will jeopardize your chances of obtaining permanent residency in Canada.
Canadian Experience Class
The key to obtaining permanent residency faster by gaining Canadian work experience. For Canadian students with Canadian work experience, Canada Express Entry has a unique project: Canadian Express Class. Through this program, any student has minutes. With 1 year of Canadian work experience (part-time or full-time) in the past 3 years, you can apply for Canadian PR and obtain permanent residency in the shortest time.
In addition, if the candidate has a Canadian education background, it will immediately improve their scores and win PRs for them faster. Considering that this unique CEC program is associated with faster Canadian PR, many Indian students choose to stay in Canada, accumulate work experience, and invite their family members to reside permanently after successful PR.
Well, although these are the main ways students immigrate to Canada and stay in Canada permanently, the story does not end there. In this day and age, most students choose to settle in Canada instead of the United States. According to Gujurat weekly, the number of students applying for American universities fell by 39% in one year, while the number of Canadian students applying for education internationally increased significantly. In 2021, Canada today has gained the tremendous power to give wings to students’ dreams.
