Important Info For Americans Who Want To Move To Canada
At Ackah Business Immigration Law, we are getting more and more inquiries from Americans about their eligibility to move to Canada for personal and professional reasons
- people who are concerned with US politics, the economy and overall well-being
- parents looking for a safe place to raise their children
- retirees who like the common language and proximity of Canada
Canada immigration statistics show:
- Over 2017 and the first quarter of 2018, 1,055 more Americans were granted permanent residency than the average number during the Obama administration.
- Student visas granted to U.S. citizens increased by 1.012 in 2017, compared to the average number over the eight years before that.
According to a recent poll,
The desire to move to Canada, which was widely reported following Trump’s election in 2016, remains intact.
Canada's Express Entry system is based on an eligibility points system, which grades potential immigrants on many factors including work experience, age, education and English and French language fluency. The best-qualified applicants receive an Invitation To Apply for Permanent Residence, which includes the right to work in Canada and can lead to citizenship. New immigration rules make it easier for Americans to work and stay in Canada:
- Applicants can earn points by working in Canada, which is easier for Americans to do because Canada and the U.S. are members of NAFTA
- The number of Invitations To Apply for Permanent Residency has increased as Canada has a 3-year goal to admit 1,000,000 immigrants
- Already having a job offer before arriving in Canada became much less important when the number of points for a job offer decreased from 600 to 50
Immigration rules change frequently. Contact Ackah Law today at (403) 452-9515 Ext. 100 or 1-800-932-1190 or email us directly to find out if you are qualified to move to Canada.
