How H1-B Visa Holders Can Move to Canada

Do you have an H1-B Visa to work in the U.S.? Do you want to move to Canada?

Canadian employers are searching for high-skilled foreign workers who want to live and work in Canada, and help grow our economy. In November, Canada announced a new 3-year immigration target of 1,000,000 new immigrants for 2018-2020, a nearly 20% increase in the number of candidates granted permanent residence. Many H1-B Visa workers in the United States are considering their options to move to other countries if their work permit is not renewed.

Canada's Express Entry system provides highly skilled H1-B visa holders an opportunity to immigrate to Canada. Canada's Government has taken steps to fast-track Express Entry applications in less than 6 months. Express Entry is a point based system that evaluates applicants based on:

  • language ability - English and French
  • level of education
  • skilled work experience

Canada Express Entry System to Apply for Permanent Residency

Express Entry is Canada's skilled-worker immigration application system, launched in January 2015, to attract high-skilled foreign workers and former international students who want to live in Canada permanently and whose in-demand skills are needed by employers across the country.

To help you have the best chance to be invited and selected to move to Canada, a Canadian immigration lawyer can help you avoid mistakes and guide you through the application process.

Thank you again for all of your help making my adventure towards citizenship successful. I am confident that your support was a significant contributor to making the process go as quickly and smoothly as it did. With all of my trips outside of the country, things could very easily have gotten a lot more difficult and drawn out. It still seems hard to believe that it is all done!
