When people think about moving to Canada, their mind dreams of Vancouver, Toronto or Ottawa as their soon-to-be home. These cities may be talked about the most, but they are not the only places in Canada with endless prospects for a better life.
Young professionals with a post-secondary education have an immediate chance of attaining that goal to enter the country. If that education is lacking, Canada still opens doors to people who are willing to consider other options to enter the country.
For those who have only a high school diploma, the best path to citizenship is by going to where the jobs are, says Rachel Gary, COO of Canada Direct. “Be flexible about where you’re willing to move to,” she says.
Manitoba is the only province that does not require applicants to pass an English test. Along with Saskatchewan, Manitoba has the most lenient eligibility requirements because it needs people the most.
People outside of Canada shudder at the thought of how cold it is in these Prairie provinces, but what’s important to remember is, it isn’t a permanent move. Gary suggests that once immigrants have earned enough points to get resident status, they can apply for jobs in other places.
“We can submit their application to move to Vancouver right from the start but I can almost guarantee they won’t be in the pool,” she says.
“We always tell them the truth because immigrating to Canada is not a cheap process. We don’t want to submit people’s applications and not get them here. If they only have a high school diploma and want this opportunity to come to Canada, they have to go to Manitoba.”
The same principle applies to the type of work people are willing to do.
If they agree to work in the fields that have the highest demand, applicants can get their start in Canada and earn points quickly to achieve residency.
