Counsel Creed, Expert

Hi, welcome to Just Answer and thank you for using our services. I am Counsel Creed. International students studying in Canada may apply for Canadian permanent resident status while studying in Canada or after completing their studies, provided they meet the requirements of the Canadian immigration program under which they apply. The two most suitable programs to consider are Canadian Experience Class (CEC) and the Provincial Nominee Program (PNPs)

Provincial Nominee Programs

Many provinces offer Canadian immigration programs for foreign students via the provincial nominee programs they have in place. Generally, applicants must have graduated from a Canadian post secondary education program. Requirements can vary by province; sometimes work experience and a job offer is required. PNPs are a popular Canadian immigration option as applications for Canadian permanent residency are typically processed faster compared to other immigration programs.

  1. Canadian Experience Class (CEC)

In order to qualify for the Canadian Experience Class, student applicants must have least 12 months of work experience in Canada, in a skilled occupation (candidates must apply within three years of obtaining 1 year of qualifying experience). Students can obtain requisite work experience in Canada by applying for a Canadian Post-Graduation Work Permit. It is important to note that part-time work experience earned during studies or as part of a study program (such as internships and co-ops) does not count towards the Canadian work experience requirement.

Hello Mr. Creed, thank you so much for your reply and so sorry for not responding quickly. I started work 630am ADT today and just got home.The answer you provided is full of helpful information about immigration applications for international students in Canada in general, which is really helpful. Nonetheless, I was hoping to learn more about the paths through Nova Scotia’s Provincial Nominee Program(PNP), specifically if I have a 1 year undergraduate certificate degree.I’m happy to jump on a quick call to chat more if you are available sometime soon.
