How To Immigrate To Canada From The UK


How To Immigrate To Canada From The UK – The Great White North is a country that many people from different countries wish to go to and experience the interesting things about the place. Life in Canada is enjoyable and you are sure of being safe. But the question here is “why you will even want to immigrate to Canada from the U.K.?” Well, there are lots of reasons you would want to come to Canada even if you are a Brit.

In Canada, you get to enjoy a high standard of living at a low cost. Life in Canada is less expensive though it depends on the province. Also you don’t get to pay a high tax rate which allows you to have enough disposable income after tax has been deducted from your personal income and mind you, the minimum wage is enticing.

Immigrating to Canada is quite easy as they have over 90 immigration programs that can help you live and work in the Great White North and there are two main immigration programs that are currently issuing immigrants an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence in Canada.

We are going to be looking at these two programs but before we do so, it is worthy to note that these programs are under the Express Entry System.

What is the Express Entry system?

This system is an online immigration program that allows you to create an online profile after which you will be placed in a pool with other candidates where each candidate will be ranked based on the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) and given a score as against CRS cut-off score. For you to qualify for an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence, your score has to meet or exceed the CRS cut-off score. Your score is given based on some criteria like age, work experience, education, provincial nomination etc.

Now let’s look at the two main programs under the Express Entry System that can help you immigrate to Canada from U.K

The Canadian Experience Class

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 in the world, many countries have put a pause to immigration into their countries but Canada is not slowing down as the government has an agenda of inviting over 1million people to Canada from 2021 to 2023 to make up for the what happened during the pandemic and get the economy back and running better than it was before the pandemic. They won’t be stopping there as they will still want to continue being among the countries with the best economy in the world.


Like we have mention the criteria for having a CRS score when you go through the Express Entry System and in addition to those criteria, you must also have the ability to adapt and settle in Canada but how are you going to do this if you have not been to Canada before. Well this Canadian Experience Class was created to help skilled foreign workers get permanent Canadian residence and you can do this if you have the following:

  • A work experience in Canada
  • An education or training
  • A job offer in Canada
  • A high language fluency in English or French

This program is a good one if you want to move to Canada from the U.K

Another program is…

The Provincial Nominee Program

This program is another great way to immigrate to Canada and it is not under the Express Entry Program. The program is run by each of the 13 provinces in Canada and the set their own requirements based on the needs of the province. The provinces use this platform to invite foreigners to come fill up job positions in the province based on the occupations that are in-demand in the province and country.

The program allows the province to select candidates from the Express Entry Pool and nominate them to receive an Invitation to Apply for permanent residence. With the provincial nomination program, you can get a 400-600 CRS points and will surely guarantee you to receive an Invitation to Apply if you get some additional points from other criteria like (age, language proficiency, work experience etc.) to beat the CRS cut-off score which may be around 700-900points. So for someone that has 600points from provincial nomination, getting 200points to beat the cut-off mark of 700points can be easy provided you meet the other criteria.
