Opportunities In Canada For People Over 40

Click to FIND OUT IF YOU QUALIFY TO COME TO CANADA. ( click link and sign up )
Dear Ms Powell, I would like to live permanently in Canada with my family. I have been interested in years, but I was saving and upgrading my skills to be able to make this move. I have the money, education and skills, but I realise that since I’m now over 40, that most of the programmes are not applicable to me. Are there no programmes available to mature individuals? My prime working years are ahead of me. Isn’t that age discrimination? Why does Canada make it so hard for us? We are not coming to be burdens on their economy. We can take care of ourselves. When you are young you don’t have the work experience and money and when you have the work experience and money, you hear that you are too old. What can I do? AD Dear AD, I hear your frustration. However, there are various programmes available for people of all ages with the skill, work experience, finances and other factors to become permanent residents of…

Dual Intent and Canada Immigration

Click to FIND OUT IF YOU QUALIFY TO COME TO CANADA.(click link)
Dear Ms Powell, I read your articles each week online in the Jamaican Gleaner and I must say that I am impressed with the way you help Jamaicans worldwide through your articles. I am married to a Jamaican and a Canadian citizen. We would like the children’s grandmother to visit us for the Christmas, but we are concerned that the visa will be rejected as we had applied for sponsorship for her. She does not intend to stay until the documents get formalised. Grandpa died this year and we are worried that they think she has stronger ties to Canada than Jamaica and will refuse the visa. Is there a way to reassure them that we do not intend to break the immigration rules and that we just want our Grandma to spend Christmas and even Valentine's Day with us? We do not want her to feel lonely and it’s too expensive for our family to go there for the Christmas. Please help us to figure out the best options for us. Thank you for …

Express Entry Requirements

Click to FIND OUT IF YOU QUALIFY TO COME TO CANADA. Dear Miss Powell, Thank you for all those useful articles about the Canadian immigration system. They have really helped me with my application. I am now in the express entry pool and my score is 448 and so I expect that I will soon get an invitation to apply for permanent residence. When I applied, they didn’t ask for any documents. I’m trying to get myself ready, but I don’t know what to expect. A friend said that she didn’t get a checklist until late and she almost missed the deadline. Can you please tell me what documents they will need so that I can be prepared? Thank you for all your help.

Is this woman making a fool of me?

 FIND OUT IF YOU QUALIFY TO LIVE IN TO CANADA click here and complete our free assessment form . Dear Miss Powell, I have been with a Canadian woman for the past three years. We always go back and forth over the years. When I came up to visit her in April, she convinced me to stay with her and she said that she has put in the sponsorship application and so I don’t need to go back down as the papers are being processed by her lawyer. I told her I’m not used to just staying at home and that I can’t just stay home and wait on her, hand and foot, while the papers and processed. I need to work. One of my friends said he doesn’t think she put the papers in and that she's just looking a yard boy to spoil her. I told him I trust her and that I gave her the picture and the police record to send in. He asked me if I signed anything and that’s when I got worried. I asked her how come I didn’t need to sign anything and she said because she’s the one doing the sponsoring and her lawyer is handli…

Tradesmen are welcomed to Canada

Complete our free online form to FIND OUT IF YOU QUALIFY TO COME TO CANADA. Dear Miss Powell, I’m a hard working tradesman and I keep hearing about people going to work and live in Canada. However, every time I talk to people, they say trades people are not welcome as Canada is only looking for bright people. My aunty keeps complaining that she can’t find a good plumber there and she wishes she could sponsor me as she knows many of her church sister could use the help. If workers are short, how come I keep hearing that people can’t get through? Do they really don’t want a tradesman like me. I have a few CXC and a whole heap of experience. Tell me what to do, please. Tony Dear Tony, Tradesmen are welcomed to come to Canada. There is indeed a shortage of skilled trade workers in Canada. Therefore, the Government of Canada has an immigration category known as the Federal Skilled Trade Programme (FSTP). The FSTP is for applicants with experience in a skilled trade. Individuals are selected b…

How To Qualify Under Canada's FSWP

 FIND OUT IF YOU QUALIFY TO COME TO CANADA.click link Dear Ms Powell, I saw on your Facebook page that professionals can migrate to Canada and be citizens under the Federal Skilled Worker Programme (FSWP) and that they can bring their family. I thought that programme was scrapped. If not, can you tell how I can qualify? Is there a specified occupation list? Do I need a job offer to qualify? Thanks in advance for selecting my question. AE Dear AE Canada has many immigration programmes under which qualified individuals can move to Canada with their family. Although the programmes were revised, they were not 'scrapped'. The government continues to select skilled workers based on factors which they deem to be indicators that applicants are likely to integrate into the society and contribute to the economy. The most popular pathway to permanent residence and ultimately citizenship are the economic programmes, which are now managed by the express entry system. The three main economic p…
