Permanent Resident Visa

Express Entry

Express entry enhances the convenience of entering Canada through immigration. As Canada seeks skilled immigrants, the processing time and approved score thresholds have been greatly reduced. Express Entry is a point system that allows you to accumulate points based on your education, work experience, and language skills. To apply, you must be eligible for one of Express Entry’s immigration programmes.

Express Entry Points:

The information on your profile, including your skills and experiences, influence how many points you receive. In addition to English, you can gain up to 50 points for strong French language skills (even if French is your second language). If you achieve the minimal score for that draw, you will be invited to apply for permanent residency.

Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)

Applicants who receive Canadian work visas through the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) benefit from a streamlined visa application process. Prospective immigrants must have the necessary skills, education, employment experience, and proof of language competence to be eligible for the PNP. Each province has its own immigration requirements and rules. You may be able to apply in different provinces depending on your degree and work experience. As a professional immigration firm, HICC aids clients in determining which provinces they have a better chance of applying to.

Owner Operator

In order to be considered an owner/operator, the foreign national must: demonstrate a level of controlling interest in the company, such as being the sole proprietor or the majority shareholder (50.01% plus); show that this temporary entry will result in the creation or retention of employment opportunities for Canadians and permanent residents and/or skills transfer to Canadians and permanent residents (or hire a Canadian or PR employee); and a feasible and strong business plan. You can enter Canada via this program as a temporary worker running your own business. There is no required net worth, and you are free to start a brand-new company or buy an existing one.

This programme takes into account factors such as intent to reside in the selected community, employment offers and the community’s economic requirements, work experience and abilities, and ties to the community.
