Canada Offering Easy Solutions For The Overseas Migrants to Work!

The Canadian Government is helping the international migrant workers to find full-time employment in their field of training as soon as the migrants land up in Canada. In earlier week Ahmed Hussen, Minister of Canadian Immigration announced a new program coming to the Toronto and Hamilton regions that will help almost 960 internationally trained newcomers get their credentials recognized in Canada. 

Applying For Loans as a Newcomer to Canada

The new program that honorable minister was saying is the Foreign Credential Recognition (FCR) Loan Program for Toronto. The Loan Program helps the newcomers to pay for licensing exams, training and skill courses as well as everyday living costs while their work credentials are recognized in Canada. Having a newcomer’s credentials recognized in Canada makes it easier to find full-time employment as per their unique training and skill set. This is important for Canadian Government because it means more skilled workers working in their field of expertise and contributing towards the growing economy of Canada. 

Understanding the FCR Loan Program

The FCR Loan Program was introduced in 2012 as a pilot project in ten cities across Canada. The Canadian Government is investing over $1.577 million into the program for the next eight years and it will continue to bring in foreign skilled workers in their respective fields. Most of the women will be benefited from the counseling for the programs. The Government is putting every possible effort to encourage women to take part in the program initiated by the Government.

This is a Solution to Larger Problem

The FCR Loan program is continuing to expand and promises more, and easier, foreign credential recognition for a new skilled worker means greater addition of more newcomers into Canadian job. Canada is the most preferred immigration destination for new immigrants; the city of Toronto will be an important stepping-stone for the success of this project.

Atlantic Provinces Giving More Jobs to International Workers

The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (AIPP) was launched two years ago with an aim to provide matching international workers with Canadian jobs. The programs include four Atlantic Provinces namely Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland & Labrador, and Prince Edward Island (PEI). 

The success of AIPP is leading Canadian Government to match international workers with job openings in the Canadian market.

The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program has proven to be successful way of recruiting foreign workers to fill the Canadian job market. The successful migrants coming through AIP are paired with Canadian employer to take full-time job in Atlantic Canada. The immigrants are given support through the immigration process and their employers in return assist them for Canadian settlement. 

The AIP success becomes clear when the government increased the program’s quota by creating space for an additional 500 workers and their families to take on jobs in the Atlantic region. The program has proven to be a successful model for bringing new immigrants to Canada with 100% certainty of employment. As finding job in Canada for new immigrant can be tricky, AIP could be adapted to a national level helping new migrants arrive in Canada with a job already lined up.

Know about AIP

The AIP is an employer-driven immigration program that allows an applicant to apply directly to a designated employer through AIP. The candidates who receives offer of employment can then begin an application with AIP. The candidates then can become permanent resident through AIP, with a job lined up and a personalized settlement plan for themselves and their family.
Also, employers hiring applicants through AIP do not require a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) to hire foreign workers. Thus, AIP is much easier platform for the migrants to get hired by the Canadian employers. 

What are other immigration options?

Canada offers different PR programs for the migrants willing to come and settle in the country. There are many PR options specifically for skilled workers hoping to start a new life in Canada. the programs include Express Entry System, The Federal Skilled Worker (FSW) is the largest immigration programs for international skilled workers. 

Provincial Nominee Program (PNPs) is the other alternative PR programs for the foreign skilled migrants. The province has different nomination criteria to nominate the applicants. Many PNPs are occupation-specific, recruiting applicants through in-demand occupations 

How to apply for AIP?

The application process for AIP has recently become much easier; three out of four Atlantic Provinces released their designated employers, making it faster and easier for applicants to get in direct contact with the potential employers in the province as soon as possible. The provinces are Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland & Labrador. Visit source link https://bit.ly/2NQsnOf for more details.
