How to get a job & PR in Canada through Yukon Community Pilot

Alexander Immigration Services is often asked for assistance to obtain jobs in Canada that lead to PR. Though we still do not provide recruitment assistance, we wish to share with you authentic government-approved websites to begin your job search and an increasingly popular program to obtain Canadian PR.
 
The Yukon Community Pilot(YCP) is a three-year pilot slated to run from Jan 2020 to June 2023 launched by Yukon. The YCP is unique since it offers a special work permit that would enable the nominees to work for two to three employers in a participating Yukon Community.
 
Communities participating in YCP are:
• Carcross
• Carmacks
• Dawson City
• Haines Junction
• Watson Lake
• Whitehorse
 
To be eligible for the YCP work permit stream, foreign nationals must:
 
• be destined to a job location in a participating community in the Yukon
• have 2 to 3 job offers with up to 3 employers that will allow them to accumulate 1,560 hours in a single year (equivalent to annual full-time work), within the same participating Yukon community
 
The first step would be to find employment at the participating community through these websites:
 
 
Once you receive 2 to 3 part-time employments in the same community, you can apply for a nomination from Yukon. Upon being nominated, you can apply for a 2-year open work permit restricted to the location to one of the participating communities. Once you receive your work permit, you can move to the Yukon community and also apply for Canadian permanent residency.
 
If there is a delay in PR processing, you can apply for an extension and continue to work for your employers during the entire process. The great news is that if the employer in between can no longer provide you with adequate work, Yukon will help you find new employment to support full-time, year-round work.
 
Your spouse can accompany you with an open work permit if your employment is in a National Occupation Classification (NOC) skill 0 or A or B position.
 
Please remember you need to meet minimum English or French language requirements depending on the NOC since you will be coming to Canada where English and French are the national languages.
 
Wish you all the best in your job search and see you soon in Canada.

Saskatchewan in-demand occupations revamped

The province of Saskatchewan has now expanded its in-demand occupation list from 19 to over 200 occupations with immediate effect.

Saskatchewan has released the list of 129 ineligible occupations, which leaves around 200 NOC 0, A & B occupations under which the interested applicants can apply for in the PNP program.

These points would ensure the candidate gets selected and receives the Invitation to apply for permanent residence in the subsequent draws.

Saskatchewan PNP requires its immigration consultants to be specially licensed by the province apart from being licensed by ICCRC. Alexander Immigration Services has a specific license from Saskatchewan to provide all kinds of immigration service to applicants worldwide who apply for studies and permanent residency to Saskatchewan.

Alexander Immigration services is also a Canadian Government regulatory body ICCRC licensed organization and can be found on the official website by typing either the company name “Alexander Immigration Services” or the licensed consultant’s name “Hemalatha Alexander” in the relevant columns.

New Agri-food Immigration Pilot Program to be launched soon

The Canadian government has announced a new three-year immigration pilot program to bring full-time non-seasonal agricultural workers into Canada, including a pathway to permanent residency.

The pilot is a collaboration between Agriculture and Agri-food Canada and Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC).

IRCC has stated that this program will help non-seasonal foreign agrifood workers brought to Canada through the temporary foreign worker program secure permanent residency status, instead of having to renew their work permits repeatedly.

The program is expected to roll out later this year.

With this new Agrifood Immigration Pilot Along the earlier announced Rural & Northern immigration Pilot program, there will be more opportunities for foreign nationals to immigrate to Canada with employment.

Being prepared before the programs roll out is the key for successful entry into Canada. Contact us by email info@alexanderimmigration.ca and/or book your consultation through our website www.alexanderimmigration.ca to plan a successful immigration strategy to Canada.

British Columbia has launched a new Regional Pilot for Entrepreneurs interested in immigrating to Canada with community referral.

The new program is designed to assist small remote communities in British Columbia to attract new businesses and create new jobs.

Interested entrepreneurs must first assess their eligibility, then complete an exploratory visit to the community where they wish to set up their business, present a business proposal to the community’s designated pilot representative, and request a referral from the community to register under the pilot.

Invest a minimum of $100,000 in eligible business;

Hold a minimum personal net worth of $300,000;

have experience of 3+ years as an active business owner-manager or 4+ years as a senior manager within the last five years;

retain a minimum of 51 percent ownership in the new business;

create at least one new job for a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada;

obtain minimum proficiency in English or French equal to Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) 4 and above

Approved applicants (after signing a performance agreement with BC PNP) are issued a work permit support letter from BC PNP which is then used to apply for the two-year work permit with IRCC.
