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.

My brother suggested Ackah Business Immigration Law. He just raved about Evelyn Ackah and told me that she would definitely take care of me. At first I thought the fees were a little steep because I have heard of other people paying a fraction of the fee quote I received. However, I do know that you get what you pay for. Ultimately, I am so happy that Ackah Business Immigration Law took me on as a client and supported me through the LMIA process. Evelyn Ackah’s team was absolutely amazing to work with! They were very responsive. They responded to all of my emails quickly – even on weekends! . Evelyn called me right away to talk through the issues with me. Words really just can’t describe the level of service I received from this firm. I have worked with many different lawyers and professionals before and I can definitely say that Evelyn Ackah and her team provide exceptional service. They are worth every penny! Thank you again Ackah Business Immigration Law for all of your hard work!
