Canada welcomes hard-working people from all over the world. Some industries have a high demand for professionals. Those seeking immigration who speak English and have professional experience may qualify to immigrate and start a new life in Canada. 

While we are not authorized immigration consultants or lawyers, we are happy to share some information so you can understand some avenues to help you get there and connect you with an authorized immigration professional should you have the resources and when you have the right plan to make such a big move in your life!


Canada has been an amazing and welcoming country to so many. In fact, Canadian society is comprised of people from all over the world who one day left their birth country behind and decided to call Canada “HOME.” It’s a land of opportunity for those who are not afraid to work hard and are willing to grab this opportunity and make it work. In fact, I am one of them!


Now, having also been an immigrant myself and walked the journey, I can tell you it’s not an easy journey! There are ups and downs, pros and cons. It’s NOT for everyone.

You need to consider many factors before you make that decision and move. It will involve a lot of emotional and financial investment from your side!


While Canada welcomes people to move from all four corners of the world, it has a “Human Resources” and “Financial” strategy behind it. The country does not want anyone immigrating to its land to become “dependent” on the government (under welfare or social assistance), nor to COMPETE with Canadians or permanent residents who are already living there.


As such, the Immigration strategy involves considering hard-working, healthy and educated people who can meet current demands in areas of economic development and employment.

It will not allow people who have no experience or no way to contribute to its local economy to enter and not contribute to its local society, which needs to strive and prosper.


There are a few ways someone can immigrate to Canada, and I will mention a few here that are the most popular and chosen options.

But certainly, if you think you may qualify, we will need to connect you with a qualified Immigration consultant who knows the “ins and outs” of Immigration law, which often changes.


First of, for most Immigration streams, Canada will require the applicant to prove they have funds to sustain themselves in Canada for a minimum of 12 months, affording the Canadian costs of living. From the Government of Canada website, this is the current amount required to show financial proof:







Scholl Tuition will start at around CAD$15,000 PER YEAR of study, but it could be a bit less or a bit more depending on the College, and it is much higher at the University Level.

To get the STUDENT VISA approved, students must show proof of their first full year's tuition, in addition to the funds above for living costs and tickets to fly to Canada.


Other additional costs that may apply:

  • Original documentation, copy of certificates

  • Legal translations, if documents are not issued in English or French (French if the immigrant is willing to move to the province of Quebec, where the official language is French).

  • Diplomas / Degrees Evaluations (approximately CAD$250)

  • Proof of proficiency in the English language, if your country's native and official language is not English

  • Medical examinations

  • Visa itself cost + Biometrics

  • Immigration application fees are paid to the government of Canada directly.

  • Health Insurance covers you in Canada until the Province you immigrate to covers you for medical costs in case of emergencies. It can be 90 days or more after you land;


If you are choosing to come to Canada to study, we have a platform that can allow you to explore 6,000 educational institutions with no cost to browse. You can sign up here and check:


If you already have a bachelor’s Degree or College Diploma, please send us your updated CV and a copy of your certificates in English, and we can evaluate if this area of your graduation is one that Canada is looking for international workers. If so, you may qualify for the Skilled Workers (Express Entry) program. You will be required an additional minimum of one year of professional experience in the area you graduated to qualify for this immigration program.


Since this is a point system, please also provide us with the information below:


  1. Are you married or single?

  2. If married, is your wife/husband also fluent in English? Also, send their diploma/certification if they have one.

  3. Do you have kids? How old are they?

  4. Both of your Day of Birth (DOB)

  5. Please confirm that you have the funds required to immigrate, or at least some of them, and can work towards that goal in the next year.

  6. If you answered YES to question (e), please indicate if you’d like to move forward and book a consultation slot of 30 minutes for more information.


Hoping this information was helpful and that we can perhaps assist you in achieving your goal.
