Proof Of Settlement Funds Has Increased For Express Entry Applicants
The Government of Canada has increased the settlement proof of funds requirement. The amount of money you need to support your family is set by the size of your family. For example, for a single person arriving unaccompanied in Canada, there is an increase from $12,474 to $12,669. All Federal Skilled Worker Class Program and the Federal Skilled Trades Class Program applicants must show proof of funds, which are required to ensure the principal applicant and their accompanying family members have the financial means to support themselves once they settle in Canada as permanent residents. Applicants applying under the Canadian Experience Class Program are exempt from having to prove they have the minimum settlement funds. Number of family members funds are required in Canadian dollars.

Parents and Grandparents Sponsorship Program
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has announced the Parents and Grandparents Program will be opening in late January 2019. Last year IRCC announced that it will accept 20,000 applications for the sponsorship of parents and grandparents in 2019. The Parents and Grandparents Sponsorship Program will be available to Canadian citizens and permanent residents meeting the eligibility requirements who wish to sponsor their parents and grandparents. An important factor for sponsors will be to demonstrate they have minimum income requirements, evidence they can financially support their dependents and the applicant(s). Applicants being sponsored must also meet other immigration requirements.
Contact us to apply to Sponsor your Parents and Grandparents or to apply for other immigration programs for Canada. Visit us at www.crightneyimmigration.com or call us at 1-800-556-4581 or 647-556-1781.
Many Canadian employers outside Quebec can hire foreign workers to
work outside of Quebec and do not require a Labour Market Impact
Assessment (LMIA) to hire the worker. Immigration, Refugees and
Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has made it easier for employers to hire
French-speaking or bilingual workers outside Quebec.
After hiring the foreign
worker there are also additional options that may be available to allow
the worker to become a permanent resident of Canada. To apply under
the Francophone Mobility Program / French-speaking or bilingual workers outside Quebec Program contact us at 647-556-1781 or 1-800-556-4581 or visit us at www.crightneyimmigration.com

applications before or on September 18, 2018 by 11:06 UTC were invited.
