Age issues related to Immigration to Canada?
Canada is regarded as one of the best countries by people for migration owing to its flexible immigration policies and pathways as per your profile, needs, and requirements.
Though there are many parameters such as educational qualification, work experience, adaptability, and genuine intention to live and economically establish themselves in the province, one falls back when it comes to the cap in age while applying via the Canada Express system since the older you get. The slimmer are the chances to get adequate points for Canadian express entry since you need to have a high CRS score to qualify for the weekly Express entry draws.
If you are above 45 years old, your chances of getting an Invitation to apply under the skilled category for permanent residence to Canada drastically reduce, though you can still apply. The CRS system has four primary classes or classifications of human capital factors wherein applicants can get a good and high score if they are single.
Applicants can secure as much as 500 points for all the factors if they plan to come to Canada without a spouse or common-law partner. If you bring along your spouse or common-law partner, the score immediately comes down to 460.
Maximum points can be secured if you are 20-29 years old, and after 30, the applicant loses 5 points for every extra year. For those above 44 or 45, the score falls sharply with 0 points to those above 45.
Under the Express Entry Federal Skilled Worker Program, the applicant’s age constitutes 12 per cent of the entire selection standards on the selection grid. Due to age, many of them lose the opportunity to move to Canada, which is why the immigration department has decided to make some changes.
Now the Canadian government shall welcome applicants who adhere to, complete or match the real-time labour requirements. Per the proposed bill, the training, education, experience, and responsibilities (TEER) system coming under the purview of Express entry shall permit ITAs to be based on educational qualifications and professions that are based industry-wise.
Those not meeting the skilled professional program, on account of the age factor, need not lose heart. They can look at alternatives like Canadian startups and Canada Entrepreneur visas.
In the Canadian points-based immigration system, less importance shall be given to the age factor. For more such news, you can call us at 8595338595 or mail us at [email protected]
