How to speed your Canada’s Immigration Application

As the country settles soon into a new year (2010), Canadian officials have set their sights on speeding up the immigration process, increasing the number of accepted applicants and strengthening  foreign credential recognition.

There are currently more than 900,000 immigration applications under review and, regardless of their category, the process can sometimes take more than five years,  so the best thing you can do to speed-up your immigration processing currently is this: get a temporary work  visa.   A temporary work visa for Canada (and especially for those occupations under pressure in Alberta and British Columbia .

My experience filling out documents lately has been that applications from foreigners with Canadian work visas are being processed at extraordinary speed. One client of mine received permanent residence within 10 months of applying — that is nearly a record!

So if you qualify for permanent residence, you may have the skills needed to qualify for a temporary work visa — it is well worth your effort to do so, as these applications seem to be getting fast-tracked.

Earning the right to live and work in Canada requires knowledge and technical expertise at many levels. You need to possess the required skills, and you will need guidance through the entire process once you are selected as suitable and required by an Canadian Employer. You must be able to speak English fluently.

Hineni Media database  has  been launched in order to offer a good value way of data matching skilled workers outside Canada, with Canadian employers. Many Canadian employers find the cost of international recruitment prohibitively expensive and full of red tape. Using Hineni Media database, you can contact the company directly and  they have the ability to see your CV / Resume online at their leisure, and at a low cost.

Hineni Database is also a resource linking you to some 1,000 organizations that offer internships in 14 sectors ranging from human rights and social service to sports and media. It contains internships from Canadian companies large and small, local and international, and exposes students to opportunities they wouldn’t find anywhere else.  This is a subscription service available at   http://www.hinenimedia.memberlodge.org

Canada Living:

Canada is a vast country which is often over shadowed by the neighbouring United States of America but Canada is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Unknown to many, Canada is actually the second largest country in the world by land mass, and is one of the top 10 economies (by size) in the world. Hence there is plenty of room for a growing population number to live in Canada . 

 Canada has 10 provinces, 3 territories, five regional areas, 25 cities, 31 million people. What does this mean? Canada is large! As you make the transition to living in Canada you can look forward to learning and exploring all that Canada has to offer. 

In what some may find surprising, the country was original inhabited by the aboriginal tribes commonly associated with Australia, although the country has very strong links with the UK and France, hence English and French are stated as the two main languages of the country. 

Canada is well known for the mounted police force, the “mounties”, and offers some of the most beautiful and relatively untouched natural scenery seen anywhere in the world.  Often thought of as a “poor cousin” of the USA, Canada has a lot to offer, and is one of the most progressive nations of the world.

The climate of Canada varies from Arctic in the north to temperate on the south. The two ends of Canada experience two different types of climate, which are opposite to each other. It is said that in winters Canadians feel thankful that they have their jackets and in summer they feel the same for they have the refuge of their air-conditioned homes.

If this is what you want to know, here are some important facts:

•Canada enjoys a high standard of living.
•Canada welcomes businesses and investment.
•Canadians have one of the highest life expectancies in the world.
•Canadians benefit from a good education system and universal health care.
•Canada is peaceful and safe, and one of the most beautiful countries in the world.
•Canada aims to accept almost 250,000 immigrants each year.

If you’re looking around the Greater Toronto Area, have a look at Richmond Hill, Etobicoke, Oakville or Newmarket . If you’re looking to get into a booming neighborhood, try Georgetown or Orangeville.  These two places are doing really well in the real estate market – you’ll get a nice big home over there.

Also Guelph or Beamsville are great places in Ontario; Vancouver is very beautiful, heaven on earth ! but expensive. Don’t overlook Halifax (a cheaper and smaller coastal alternative to Vancouver), which is also very nice, Saskatoon in the prairies is a really great artsy town. Edmonton if you like giant shopping malls. Calgary if you love to ski.
