What are the ways to immigrate to Canada without a job offer?

Posted by Nationwide Immigration Services on January 17th, 2023

Immigrants are eager to settle down in Canada, as much as Canada immigration is happy to welcome immigrants. Canada is planning to invite 1.3 million newcomers to live, work, and contribute to the economy. The only condition is the candidates must meet the eligibility criteria of IRCC before applying for Canada PR visa. Usually, people say that it is possible to immigrate to Canada with all the favorable programs launched by the Canadian government. But that depends upon the profile of the applicant and their experience and skills in their selected occupation. Many people keep looking for a job in Canada from India but because of some reasons, they cannot land a relevant job. In such a case, either they can get disappointed or simply start looking for available options. Yes, there are many ways out there through which one can apply for Canada PR visa without a job offer. Today we will give you a brief idea about all those programs started by IRCC. So, let’s begin-

  • Express Entry Program - This system is widely used and one of the oldest programs of Canada immigration. It is often in the thoughts of immigrants while they think of applying for Canada PR visa. This program is based on a point system called Comprehensive Ranking System, which is important to give an equal chance to every applicant. Although a job offer is not mandatory to apply for the Express Entry program, it is certainly a benefit as you can get an extra 50 to 200 points depending upon your occupation category in the NOC TEER system. It is undoubtedly a cumbersome task, you need to find an employer first who can apply for a LMIA and obtain a positive Labor Market Impact Assessment to successfully invite you to Canada. Usually, it is seen that a professional who is working for the past three to four years in a reputed firm at a good designation can complete their CRS score requirement without a job offer. Since there are different sub-categories under the Express Entry program, so if you are applying for the Federal Skilled Trades category, then you either need a full-time job offer or Canadian skilled trade certification qualification under the same trade.
  • Provincial Nominee Program - Another popular program of Canadian immigration is PNP. Every province of Canada participates as PNP with their own rules and regulations as well as the requirements. The candidate that fulfills the prerequisites of a particular province gets the nomination by the province government to apply for Canada PR visa. It is no surprise that the welcoming government of Canada is planning to have 117, 500 new immigration via the route of PNP by 2025. The cost of applying for Canada residence through PNP and Express Entry are almost the same. Most of the PNPs don't charge any fee to process the application. However, only Ontario makes an exception with the charges up to 00. While applying for Canada PR visa under PNP, you should be certain that you will only be allowed to live in a specific state of Canada (the one that nominated you) and moving to a different province will only be possible for some years (depending on the case).

Just like these two options, there are many other programs like business immigration, family sponsorship, and so on. You should not delay anymore and connect with Nationwide Immigration Services to pick the best suitable Canadian immigration program among various pathways depending upon your profile.
