Rural & Northern Immigration Pilot

Canada has launched a new Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot to help bring new skilled worker immigrants to smaller communities. This Pilot was developed to help spread the benefits of economic immigration to smaller communities throughout Canada that are contending with ageing populations and labour shortages

The Government of Canada will work with local communities to:

– use immigration to help meet local labour market needs and support regional economic development;

– test a new pathway to permanent residence in rural Canada for skilled foreign nationals at various skill levels;

– create welcoming environments that encourage and help new immigrants to stay in their new communities;

This community-driven Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot will facilitate permanent residence for foreign workers of various skill levels in eligible communities in the following provinces and territories:





British Columbia


Northwest Territories


The new Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot will operate alongside Canada’s Provincial Nominee Program. Communities selected will be announced in spring 2019, with the identification of new permanent resident candidates to start in summer 2019.

Great News – Post Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) Program Update

International students now have 180 days to apply for their PGWP upon completion of their studies, and not 90 days.
Another significant update is the removal of the requirement to hold a valid study permit when applying for a PGWP. The study permit must have been valid at some point during the 180 days period the graduates have for submission.
These program updates are highly beneficial to the graduates as it gives the students time to collect the required documents to apply for their PGWP.
PGWP is an open work permit that allows international students who graduate from eligible Canadian designated learning institutions (DLI) to stay and work in Canada for a period of up to three years after their studies.
On obtaining the PGWP, they can work for any employer across Canada without restrictions, and most importantly they do not require a job offer to get this work permit.
On obtaining a year of skilled work experience under Canada’s National Occupational Classification (NOC) A or B, they can apply for permanent residence under the Canadian Experience Class.
To know more about this program or if interested in studying in Canada, please contact us.

Temporary Resident Visa Refused/Rejected – What Next?

You received that dreaded letter from IRCC informing that your visa for visiting/ studying/ working in Canada has been rejected/refused.

Most  refusals will be due to one or a combination of the following:

  • Inadequate documentation
  • The officer is concerned with your intent for visa
  • Insufficient funds for your stay in Canada
  • Travel History
  • Ties to Home Country & Canada
  • Inadmissibility – Medical or Criminal
  • Misrepresentation – Falsified Documents or Information

Occasionally the officers may have other concerns that do not fall in one of the above parameters, and which will have to be addressed on an individual basis.

Your Canadian dream has been shattered, what next? Don’t give up or rush to reapply immediately without understanding the actual reasons for refusal/rejection.

Follow these steps and find success in your next attempt:

  • Seek professional assistance – contact an ICCRC licensed Immigration Consultant and discuss your case in detail. Now is the time to be prudent and seek expert help.
  • Make a request under the Access to Information and Privacy Act(ATIP) to get the actual reasons for refusal. The letter that you usually get is a generic one that does not give you specific details about your case in particular. Your licensed consultant can help you apply for and obtain the GCMS notes under ATIP for a fee. This is a crucial step and essential for your success during the reapplication process.
  • Address concerns found in the GCMS notes and submit a fresh application with detailed explanations. Your licensed consultant will be able to help you navigate this step.
  • Alternately, if you feel the concerns raised in the GCMS notes are not valid, and they have already been addressed, then consider filing an application for Leave and Judicial Review. Your licensed consultant cannot represent you in Federal Court but will refer you to a professional Immigration Lawyer who is an expert with such court cases.

If you plan to apply for a Temporary Resident Visa or if your visa has been rejected/refused, contact us today! Hiring a licensed professional can make a huge difference in the quality of your application.

We would love to help you and guide you through the application process to increase your chance of getting the coveted Canadian Visa stamped on your passports.

WES Credential Evaluation – India document requirement changes


With effect from Dec 1, 2018, WES has modified its requirement for applicants educated in India.

Due to an increase in fraudulent documents, WES has now decided to only accept documents in sealed envelopes mailed directly by the institutions and will reject documents in sealed envelopes forwarded by the applicants themselves or other third parties.

Therefore, please ask your institution to mail your attested documents directly to WES in a sealed envelope with the institution stamp/seal on the back flap.  Kindly remember, they have to mail the envelope themselves and should not give it to you or a third party to mail it to WES.

More information on this policy change can be found on the official WES website.

Please contact Alexander Immigration Services for all your immigration needs. We will help you navigate successfully through the complicated world of Canadian Immigration.
