 FIND OUT IF YOU QUALIFY TO COME TO CANADA. click link, complete
Dear Miss Powell, I hear that Canada is having elections this year and this could affect whether or not immigrants are allowed into Canada. Is this so? Do you think they will scrap the express entry system? A friend said she was qualified sometime ago and then they changed the system and so she had to give up on her dreams to go to Canada. I want to go to Canada but just making sure I tidy up my affairs before I apply. What do you recommend? PA Dear PA, Canada’s immigration policy is usually based on the goals, policies and objectives of the ruling party. The Liberal Party has been the ruling party since 2015.

Immigration Corner | What Is A 'Notice Of Interest'?

Dear Miss Powell, My daughter is in the express entry pool and she said she received an expression of interest from the province of Ontario. What does that mean? Is that what you call the provincial nominee? Does that mean she will now have enough points and will get permanent residence? Waiting for your urgent response. AD Dear AD, Congratulations! Your daughter is one step closer to receiving permanent residence in Canada. Some provinces scout the express entry pool for suitable candidates and invite then to apply to be nominated for permanent residence. This invitation to apply is called 'notice of interest' (NOI).

Immigration Corner | How To Correct An Error On Official Immigration Documents

Dear Miss Powell I have an urgent question. I received my visa to live in Canada a few months ago and I’m leaving for Canada tomorrow. I just noticed that my name was spelt incorrectly on the letter that I received. Can this be changed? Will they turn me back when I land there? Looking forward to your urgent response. AT Dear AT I am sorry that you just noticed the error. When you receive your documents, the instructions are that you should examine the documents and if there are errors, it is your duty to contact the visa office in your country to make the corrections immediately. However, this situation is not fatal. The government of Canada has implemented several ways to verify your identity. That is the reason they collected your biometric information as a part of the application process. When you land in Canada, they will use that biometric information to verify that you are the person to whom permanent residence is granted and you should not be "turned back" at the airpo…
