Major Changes Proposed for Canada’s Immigration System


As per a recent report, the Trudeau government will introduce the changes in Canada’s current immigration system very soon (by fall 2016) as he announced the plan during the election campaign. The minister of immigration, refugee and citizenship John McCallum announced that in order to simplify immigration process, some streams need to be modified.

● One of the major concerns of government is family class immigration process.

● Canadian government has doubled the quota in the new Parents and Grandparents Super Visa Program and so it is increased from 5000 to 10000 visas per year. That means more parents and grandparents will be allowed to immigrate to Canada in 2016.

● Applicants, having siblings in Canada will be able to get more points on their application of Express Entry.

● The two year waiting period for spouse or sponsored individuals on ‘Conditional Permanent Visa’ will be bypassed.

● The Maximum age for dependent visa will be 22 instead of 19. That means, it will be easier to bring older children to Canada.
International students will not have much trouble to get admission in Canadian universities/colleges.

● International students who are young, educated and fluent in English or French are more likely to be permanent resident of Canada without facing hurdles.

It is important to stay updated with the latest changes and requirements of immigration laws and process accordingly for hassle free visa procedure. It is okay to say we are expecting good things to happen in near future. For, more information regarding Canada immigration visa, visit nearest Canada Immigration Visa Consultant in your city.
