PR in Canada - Migrate to Canada from India - canada immigration news

John McCallum, the Canadian minister for immigration, announced that there will be some major changes in the immigration system by Fall this year. It will include the streamlining of family immigration. The top most position on the list of the government is given to international students which makes it easier for them to obtain a PR in Canada based on age criteria, education and language fluency (English/French). The changes will also include the improvement of the visitor visa procedures which mainly are for weddings and funerals.

The visa processing time for family class is two years. But being the area of priority, streamlining of the admission of economic immigrants and refugees will be done as well. The students will have more points which will make migrating to Canada easier.   

A legislation was passed to change the Canadian Citizenship Act in the ‘Canada House of Commons’ following its third reading. After the bill was passed, the government proposed a comprehensive change that would allow immigrants to apply for an early Canadian citizenship.

The bill will be reducing the time for PRs, who have to live in Canada before they are eligible to apply for the citizenship. Also, the people who spend time in Canada on a work or study permit will be able to count a portion of this time towards the three-year requirement.
