There are numerous advantages with applying for immigration to Canada through the FSTP.
Successful FSTP applicants can typically get their permanent residency under Express Entry in less than six months.
Because they are not required to provide documentation of their educational background, FSTP applicants may have lower CRS scores than other applicants in the Express Entry pool. Additionally, from time to time, IRCC conducts Express Entry drawings for particular programmes that exclusively accept FSTP applicants.
Check to see if you are eligible for the FSTP in step one.
You must pass an English and/or French language test that has been approved by IRCC if you meet the requirements of the FSTP or another Express Entry programme. If you participated in an appropriate study abroad programme, you might also want to request an Educational Credential Assessment to claim the extra CRS points you are entitled to. On the Express Entry page of CanadaVisa, more details are provided
IRCC's website is where you may submit your Express Entry profile for free.
Follow the Express Entry drawings held by IRCC in step 4 to see if you were selected to get an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence. Every two weeks, there are often draws.
If you get an ITA, send your finished application for permanent residency to IRCC by the due date. For the majority of applicants, the IRCC's processing criteria for applications for permanent residence is six months or fewer.
An international worker's eligibility to work in a skilled trade in Canada can be established by showing their certificate of qualification.
