Hi,

Can someone please help with my immigration questions? My sister and a cousin in India are interested in applying for Cdn. Immigration. I browsed the CIC site, and looks like they are eligible for the Express entry. However, I have my doubts and want to confirm if it's too good to be true given their Professions that are not in IT, Trades, Finance, or HealthCare/Medical.

My Sister: Administration Professional with an MNC in Delhi, Education: BBA, Language: Shouldn't have any problem getting 7 in IELTS.

Now, when I check her eligibility, her profession falls under the NOC skill level B, and considering she secures 7 band in IELTS, she appears to be eligible for the Express Entry. So, should I assume (with this proof) that Administrative professionals are eligible?

My Cousin has the similar education, experience, and the language skills. Can I send the letter of support for both of them if they decide to apply at the same time? Or, one set of application needs to be processed before I could send a letter for the other one?

Also, what are the Processing times? The site gives 11 months, down from 59 for the applications that were received after 2010. Again, too good to be true. Am I decoding the information correctly, or is there anything more to it?

Please advise.
Thanks.

PLEASE BEAR WITH ME as the SYSTEM IS JUST GETTING STARTED AND THE INFO I HAVE IS NIL TO NEGLIGIBLE..

So, take it all in its stride and you also please do your own search as to the time taken and delays experienced.

Most of the time the people who want to enter into Canada will find that they lack such skills required in the language proficiency and it takes time to acquire them. Hence the delay prior to entry.

There are twoSTREAMS that you can explore. One gets announced in January of each year and gets closed with in a few weeks of opening up. It is the Provincial Nominee Programs. And if it happens to be for a single person, the process gets even easier. So, keep this also on the back burner and see who first gets qualified without the financial backing from the Indian End. Then provide the support for the second person through the PNP programs and provide her with the support that she will NEED. You will know why when you follow this post and into the next paragraphs and links.

Find out if you are eligible to apply. Which they are.....
http://www.cic.gc.ca/ctc-vac/getting-started.asp

A little bit of help in determining.. : Fill out your profile – Skilled immigrants (Express Entry) . : http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/skilled/profile.asp

This is the most important part that needs evaluation by you.. : Do not over extend.
http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/applications/guides/5482Eguide.asp

http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/skilled/crs-tool.asp

OINP. similarly there are other provinces that have IMMIGRATION PROGRAMS of their own for entry into CANADA. The rules and regulations implemented by them will apply.

After you decide....

You will have a lot more questions that will crop up as time progresses. See if you can find the answers yourself and then I will surely confirm the same to you. I will simplify the matters for you and your Sister and your Cousin.

Good Luck.

FH.
There is a lot more to this and so I will post it under this to complete and see where it is that the two entrants stand in their abilities to enter. fh

Thanks FH. My research is ongoing, and the links you provided me with surely help. For PNP, I think one requires an employer. Let me browse through the details and see where this takes me.

Appreciate your time and help to respond to my inquiry.

How Will Candidates be Ranked?

Candidates for Express Entry will be ranked using a points system, much like the points system used for the Federal Skilled Worker Program. Applicants can be ranked on a variety of factors, including their age, education, language proficiency in English and French, and Canadian work experience. Applicants can also earn points in these categories for their spouse or common-law partner, transferability factors, and for an arranged employment offer or a provincial nomination.

I keep myself on an RSS feed to keep me upto date on the Immigration System that we all want to know more about. But it gets difficult to help everyone as they all live in different provinces. So, please keep a constant watch on the system and the Province that you want to get entry into for your relatives who want to enter into Canada.

In Sasketchewan, they are opening up room for an additional 1000 Immigrants and they are very lenient in their requirements for entry for them. So, those who are desirous of going there, please make an application through the relatives that they have in SK and jump in on the Band Wagon and soon get into Canada.

Also keep your eye balls peeled open for such open calls for New Immigrants in the other provinces and get your families in, if you are so desirous of using such openings that are available to them.

Good Luck.

FH.
