With your dream college/university now acquired and the clock is ticking for your time in the home country as a new adventure awaits. But wait before you leave for the Great White North, you need to make sure that you have got the below listed essential items with you. This list will get you all set for your stay in Canada, so treat it like an essentials checklist!


Canada documents checklist

Well, this one is pretty understood, make sure you take ALL your documents with your before you leave the house. Forgetting even one important document can lead to some difficulties that no one would really want to face. Make sure you get all the further listed documents:


  1. Your Passport
  2. Photocopy of Home country’s driver’s license or a birth certificate
  3. Letter of Acceptance from a Canadian institution 
  4. Study Permit (obtained via a Letter of Acceptance)
  5. Finance proof
  6. Copy of medical examination and prescribed medicines
  7. Student Global Health Insurance proof

Financial Proof

Financial Proof​

You need to show proof of funds required for your stay over in Canada for 1 year. You need to show:

  1. Bank statement for the last four months
  2. GIC- Guaranteed Investment Certificate in Canadian Financial Institution
  3. Proof of student loan (If any)
  4. Scholarship Proof (if any)
  5. Bank Draft
  6. Proof of tuition fee payment
  7. ITR Report
  8. A letter from the person or school giving you money 



What many people don’t take seriously is accommodation. What people often do is book a homestay or Airbnb for the first few days of their stay and find a house there while being in the country themselves. This method is not considered bad but moving to a new country can be very hectic, especially during the first few days. 

It will be problematic to look for accommodation there. It is advised to sort out the accommodation a few days before you leave your home country. One can opt for either off-campus or on-campus housing depending on their preferences and variables (budget). 

Health Insurance

Overseas health insurance

Overseas health insurance is advised for international students in Canada. This is important because many provinces in Canada do not provide health insurance that is publicly funded. Then you need to get a private one or get one issued from the college/university. Private health insurances and Overseas healthcare generally cover many more things as compared to publicly funded health insurance.

Bank Account

Bank Account​ canada

An international student should open a bank account in a Canadian Bank. You can either go for a bank that is on your university’s campus or you can go for a bank that is providing you the services you need.


Laptop ​

Well coming to the tech part, you should essentially get a new laptop for your stay in Canada. The digital classrooms, with thousands of pages of notes, assignments, important documents, and whatnot, a laptop is very important for a university student. 

One can choose between windows or mac, as both will work just fine but the end decision depends on your personal need and preferences.

Mobile and Service Plan

Mobile and Service Plan

It is a no-brainer that you would need to sort yourselves out a new mobile phone and a service plan. You can do the same as soon as you reach Canada or from your home country as well.

Winter Clothes

Winter Clothes​

In most provinces, the winters are freezing cold, the average temperature can range from -5 to -15 degrees celsius. November and December are snowfall-heavy. Not just that, the western coast is notorious for its heavy rainfall weather as well.

The country as a whole can get to freezing cold temperatures at some points during the year. Adapting to the Canadian weather will also take a lot of time as the winters we experience in India are nothing compared to the winters in the northern hemisphere. 

So it becomes a necessity to get some winter clothes suitable for negative temperatures and freezing cold conditions. Gloves, caps, mufflers, bomber jackets, etc. are very important for your stay in the country. For western provinces, waterproof boots, rain jackets, umbrellas, etc are important.

These are the 8 essentials you would need during your stay in Canada. It is advised to get most of them sorted while being in the home country to not get entangled in these things while being a completely alien country.

Canada, a nation known for its immigration friendliness has now dropped some big changes in the immigration process. Their Express entry system is about to have some specific changes to get the right people in Canada who will make the country grow and thrive. Express Entry System used to do a two-week system, in which they used to provide a certain number of immigrants a permanent residency based on their CRS scores. Being one of the main methods to bring immigrants to Canada permanently, this would result to be a very big change.


For this year, the IRCC will continue with the normal draw system but from the very next year, IRCC will start doing “targeted draws”. Canada will also try to move away from the CRS system. Minister Sean Fraser said that this system does not yield satisfactory results in bringing the in-demand skilled and deserving immigrants to the country who are much needed for Canada’s growth. According to him, the CRS system “restricts” the right candidates.

Canada will now target its labor shortage and the market needs to bring the right people to tackle its weaknesses. This makes the draw targeted as people with certain skillset will be given an advantage over the other. Earlier it was all based on their CRS scores and the lucky draw system.

All these changes do not suggest that Canada will stop allowing people to their country, instead Canada is about to up its immigration numbers in the coming years. Canada is planning on allowing 465000 new immigrants in 2023, 485000 in 2024, and 500000 new immigrants in 2025.

The target draw will be very beneficial for professions like nurses and doctors as Canada is planning on inviting more healthcare workers.

This target draw system will furthermore increase immigrant retention rates. This is because of the fact that there are more opportunities in Canada due to the particular skill’s high demand and government support.

More updates are yet to be announced and will be announced soon. Follow Beyond Immigration to get your Canadian immigration sorted and be up to date with Canadian Immigration news.

A ray of hope can be there for the international students if their post-graduation work permits in Canada are expiring soon. As already discussed earlier the two million backlogs of Canada regarding immigration, the country is working towards expanding the Express Entry system and opening up pathways for international students and temporary foreign workers to grant permanent residency in Canada.

The skilled workers looking forward to settling down in Canada have an online Express Entry system. This system is used by Canada to manage immigration applications. The three types of immigration programs managed under the Express Entry program includes the Canadian Experience Class (CEC), the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), and the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)

Due to the increasing backlogs, the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) paused the issuance of CEC invitations which is known to be the most common route for post-graduate work permit holders for obtaining a permanent residency.

In a recent detailed discussion that took place on 16th February 2022, about the state of Canadian immigration that considered the matter to look into making the Express Entry system more flexible for the candidates and the CEC draws would be resumed in the near future.

As of now, the immigration levels plan is seeing constant improvements and the balance will be shifting back as before in the next couple of years. Canada is estimated to welcome a record number of federal skilled workers, including the Canadian Experience Class in the upcoming three years.

In the mandate letter, Fraser stated that he would be prioritizing to broaden the options for the candidates to receive PR status for the international students as well as the temporary workers especially for the candidates whose right to remain in Canada has been affected due to the IRCC delays despite contributing to the Canadian economy significantly. 

Express Entry Expansion to tackle the backlogs

A piece of concern rose out even after the reassurance of Fraser that the immigration applications will be tackled shortly that included the loosing of skilled immigrants to other countries which are working to reform their immigration system to welcome the new candidates and stating that everyone is in a race for global talent but when it comes to Canada, there’s no such question of winning the race. 

According to the new strategy of IRCC to welcome more immigrants in the upcoming years under the Immigration Level Plan 2022-24 which is looking forward to admitting 431,645 applicants in 2022 aiming to attract skilled workers to occupy the labour shortages rose because of the pandemic and also including refugee resettlement for the candidates looking forward to seeking asylum in Canada.

The economic class admissions are going to admit most of the immigrants under the new plan. However, Canada has decided to halt the admission categories such as CEC, FSWP, and the FSTP and inviting only Provincial Nominee Program candidates for applying Express Entry system since September 2021.

Research made by the CIC news states that Canada is having 64,890 CEC and FSWP candidates’ pendency till 1st February 2022. Fewer immigrants were welcomed due to the new Immigration Levels Plan through Express Entry this year.

It is necessary for the PGWP holders to be eligible for CEC or Bridging Open Work Permit (BOWP) before the expiration of their PGWP. The freezing of Invitation to Apply scares the Canadian credentialed, skilled workers of getting their permanent residency progress derailed. It is also a negative point for the Canadian employers who wish to keep them as stated by the Canadian Immigration Lawyers Association in the matter of the Express Entry pathway.

Concrete and systematic planning to tackle the short staffing in IRCC’s application processing is required necessarily. Not providing a permanent solution to the problem will lead to the casualty of resource mismanagement for the international graduates with PGWP in Canada.   

A warning has been generated by the CILA that mentions the hardships because of the September 2021 pause in the Canadian Experience Class invitations for the thousands of international students and temporary foreign workers who have contributed to Canada’s economy and society and are now only left with limited permanent residency spots for them.

Best immigration program for Canada

Express Entry Program

Canada has community-oriented, polite, and friendly people; as a result, it becomes easy for the immigrants to adapt to the new atmosphere and people. The express entry program was launched in 2015, and this helps a candidate to attain Canada’s permanent residency as soon as possible. The candidates are required to have a graduation degree, at least three years of work experience, and English language proficiency. International students can obtain permanent residency under the Express Entry system. The program includes a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) which is a point-based system that includes an evaluation system that the candidates are required to clear to be eligible for the express entry program. The program has helped the professional’s immigration to Canada a lot easier.

  • The express entry system offers three significant immigration programs:-

Federal skilled worker (FSW) – this is an initiative for skilled employees who are looking forward to gaining foreign work experience and wish to immigrate to Canada. Under this program, skilled immigrants are largely welcomed in Canada. The candidate gets opportunities based on the abilities of the candidate. A Canadian secondary or postsecondary certificate, diploma or degree, or a complete foreign credential with an assessment of the credential from a CIC-approved agency is required for the international candidates.

The working experience required for CEC is 12 months of skilled work experience within three years before applying for CEC. The processing time required for a Canadian experience class is about 3-4 months and it is stated to be one of the quickest ways to attain a permanent residency in Canada.

Other programs through which candidates can immigrate to Canada

Provincial Nominee Program

Canada’s provincial nominee program is a way of immigrating and obtaining permanent residency in the country for individuals who are interested in a specific Canadian province or territory. PNP’s are stated to be a part of an economic immigration strategy, this is designed to attract workers who can contribute to the country’s economy with a high likelihood of settling in that province. For contributing to the country’s economy, students, semi-skilled workers, skilled workers, and business people can settle down permanently in any particular province or territory in Canada. For the qualification to get PNP in Canada, a candidate should have skills, education, and work experience, and also sufficient funds to support them as well as their family.

Spouse Visa

Canada offers world-class education and largely focuses on research programs. The students who have great research ideas are supported by getting scholarships from educational institutions. If the student wishes to work while studying, they get an opportunity to earn as well. The study permit issued to the international student is valid for the entire duration of the educational program and the students get 90 days after that to stay in the country and prepare to leave or to apply for the extension of their visa. The cost of a student permit from India is around CAD 150. The candidates can get a PGWP after completing their education and starting working in Canada. The PGWP can open the pathway for international students to apply for permanent residency after some years.

Which is the easiest province to immigrate to Canada?

When it comes to getting permanent residency in Canada, Alberta and British Columbia are considered easy options for PNP and considering the best state for getting a PNP from a province in Canada is Ontario because it is Canada’s most popular destination for immigrants that invites a bunch of newcomers to the bustling city of Ontario the state provides a highly growing tech-jobs sector. The state offers a wide variety to the immigrants as well as a good lifestyle. 

Can I immigrate to Canada without a job offer?

Statement of purpose is considered as one of the most important documents required for the application process for the student who wishes to study abroad. A statement of purpose is written to highlight the candidate’s educational background, achievements, and goals and also mentions the reasons for choosing the desired university as well as the program. The statement of purpose benefits the candidates to stand out among the huge number of applications and distinguish themselves according to their grades. The statement of purpose reflects the candidate’s enthusiasm for studying in the desired university based on their extracurricular achievements as well as academic achievements. A snapshot of the candidate’s personality has been reflected by the statement of purpose by the academic performance and helps the administration to make decisions if they find the candidate a good fit for the campus culture. The statement of purpose makes your way towards the receiving of a letter of acceptance. It is necessary to have a statement of purpose for the visa application as well as for the Student Direct Stream (SDS).

How to write an SOP?

The first step is to create an outline accordingly. The candidate should start the statement of purpose by giving a brief introduction about what developed his interest in the particular subject. After that, the relevant achievements and expertise should be considered and the reason behind choosing the course and the university. The main thing that should be kept in notice while writing purposes should be that the focus is required to be on mentioning your learning and education as well as the market and industry experience. The language should be positive, and the candidate should demonstrate their interests and goals and how their talents, experiences, and interests are going to help them to contribute to the institution in the future. If the candidate has any educational gap, then that should be considered optimistically. Having a clear introduction and conclusion is extremely important. It is suggested to re-analyze the statement of purpose before sending it as this will help the candidate to correct the flow, vocabulary, sentence construction, errors, and other grammar issues. 

Is the statement of purpose mandatory for a Canada student visa?

All Canadian universities do not require an SOP for pursuing higher studies. It is completely on the university if they require a statement of purpose or not. Although, most of the Canadian reputed institutions require a statement of purpose. If a candidate wishes to apply for one or more Canadian universities, then the candidate should use most of the same content except the course details as well as the university names.

How do I write a statement of purpose to an embassy for a visa?

The statement of purpose plays a key role in the visa application. It is stated as the most crucial part of the application. To get your application accepted, the statement of purpose should be completely honest and must be reflecting the candidate’s true personality and professional identity. 

Writing a statement of purpose for a university is slightly different from a statement of purpose for a visa application. The statement of purpose for the visa should be well-detailed and the visa officer should have complete clarity of the candidate’s future aspects in the specific country.

The structure should be in the following way:-

  • The address of the candidate should be mentioned at the top right corner of the statement of purpose and on the left side; the address of the visa officer of the particular country should be mentioned.
  • The second step is to mention the subject of the matter of the candidate’s statement of purpose for the visa application.
  • The next paragraph should start with a brief introduction of what the candidate intends to discuss for the visa in their statement of purpose. 
  • The pointers that are required to be included in the introduction should be discussing the long-term goal and the inter-link about how it relates the candidate to the preferred educational program. This should also include the future goals of how the candidate’s preferred course will contribute to the field. 
  • The candidate should also include pointers related to their background about how things helped them develop their interests in the chosen professional field. This helps the visa officer to connect with the point of view of the candidate. 
  • Coming to the next paragraph, the candidate should summarize everything about their academic background, qualifications, and accolades. The internship experiences and current studying, projects, academics, market or industrial exposure. 
  • The candidates have to take care of the fact that they should not highlight any negative aspect as well as any dishonest approach in the statement of purpose. 
  • The next step is to write about the professional experiences of the candidate. This helps the candidate establish a career progression. The student’s great career graph will be a plus point.
  • The next step is to elaborate on the reasons for joining the particular academic course and the university. The candidates should discuss how the specific course and different modules will help them in shaping a brighter future. The skills of the candidate should also be considered which would be helping them to get better exposure in developing and honing the skills needed in the professional goals. And the dream goals should be briefly discussed in the statement of purpose.
  • Considering the last paragraph, the candidate should conclude by stating their passion, willingness, and readiness to pursue education in the desired university. The statement of purpose for the visa should sound focused on the future vision to follow their dreams. The candidate’s zeal and zest to study and work should be nicely reflected in the statement of purpose. 

Do I need a Letter of Explanation for a Canada study permit?

The Letter of Explanation is an official document stating the valid reasons of the candidates for studying in Canada. This is also considered to clarify the contradictory details in the study permit application. Letter of explanation and statement of purpose are the same thing in Canada. This document is considered a necessary document in Canada for the visa and university application.

Recently Canada made an announcement stating that the country is planning to welcome more than 1.3 million immigrants over the next three years to support the post-pandemic growth.

Canada has decided to increase its immigration targets. The country is looking forward to welcoming almost 432,000 new immigrants in the year 2022 instead of the initial plan to welcome 411,000 newcomers.

Indians have the highest nationality in gaining permanent residency in Canada accounting for about 40% of the total number. A total of 27,000 Indians gained access to Canada and about 50,000 Indians were invited to make an application for permanent residency.

Canada is planning to target the following number of immigrants in the coming three years:-

  • An account of 431,645 permanent residents in 2022
  • An account of 447,055 permanent residents in 2023
  • An account of 451,000 permanent residents in 2024

The immigration minister Sean Fraser stated that the levels plan will help balance the needs of the country and the international obligations. The main focus of the levels plan is to attract skilled workers who are going to contribute to the economy of Canada and help tackle the labour shortage while keeping in mind the importance of family reunification and providing help to the world’s most vulnerable populations through refugee support. Support will be provided to Canada’s resurgence through increased retention of newcomers in the regions which are facing economic, labour, and demographic challenges. The minister also added that he is proud of how far Canada has come with its achievements and looking forward to Canada becoming the top destination of choice with the help of the newcomers.

It is estimated that the Express Entry, the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), and the Temporary to Permanent Residence will invite 56% of new immigrants in the year 2022.

The PNP program of Canada is looking to invite 83,500 newcomers through this program as it is the main admission program for the economic class immigrants suggested by the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). Express entry admissions are cut half for this year but it is aimed to get back to normal levels by the year 2024 with the estimated arrival of 111,500 immigrants.

The IRCC is considering the TR2PR program as the main immigration program with inviting 40,000 immigrants in 2022 and 32,000 immigrants by 2023 and planned to reduce the admissions under the Express Entry system.

Canada’s provinces are regulating the PNP invitations since the start of the pandemic. 24% of the admissions are estimated to be considered by the family class which includes at least 80,000 candidates to arrive under the Spouses, Partner, and Children Program and considering 25,000 applications under the Parents and Grandparents Program (PGP). PGP admissions target has been increased by 1500 additional spots by the IRCC.

The left 20% of the candidates will be arriving in Canada under the refugee and humanitarian programs. Canada is looking forward to resettling 40,000 Afghan refugees over the coming years.

The Canadian government has been requested to state its immigration plan by November 1 every year by the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA). The announcement wasn’t made last year because the Canadian government was holding an election in September. Canada’s immigration system is completely guided by the levels plan. The basic approach of the levels plan is to look at the number of immigrants the country is going to welcome under the various federal, provincial, and territorial programs. According to this, the IRCC plan their operations to ensure that it can attract, settle, integrate, and retain the targeted levels of newcomers that are set to arrive in the provinces and territories.

By 2015, the number of immigrants welcomed in Canada was about 250,000. A target of 300,000 newcomers was announced in 2016. The target rose to 340,000 before the pandemic started and the immigration fell below 200,000 in 2020. To support the post- Covid economic recovery, the Canadian government decided to welcome 400,000 immigrants every year.

Canada’s immigrant record broke down last year by welcoming 405,000 new permanent residents, mostly from the temporary residents of the country.

Under the Express Entry, the PNP, and Quebec’s streams, almost 62% of the immigrants took entry to Canada, and 20% of immigrants were welcomed under the family class through the Spouses, Partner, and Children Program and the Parents and Grandparents Program, as well as the refugee and humanitarian programs, welcomed 15% immigrants.

Canada has an ageing population and low birth rate that makes Canada lack in population, labour force and economic growth, and enough workers so that they can pay taxes to support health care and education. As a result, Canada has to target newcomers to support its economy.

Due to the pandemic, taking up immigration largely has become important for the economy. The increased spending during the pandemic has made the Canadian government-run fiscal deficits. Employers belonging to Canada faced labour shortages because of the ageing population and the changing economy during the pandemic and the less arrival of the immigrants.

As the country is holding elections for the second year a well, it is required for the Canadian government to table the second Immigration Levels Plan of the year by 1st November 2022 replacing the recent plan.

February 17, 2022

Canada is considered a country with the highest immigration rates. The country is diverse as well as economically stable and these reasons lead to high immigration rates. Canada offers a safe, friendly, and peaceful environment to immigrants from all over the world. Canada’s high-level and affordable education has been the major attraction for international students to study in Canada. Canada’s vibrant and efficient market for labour helps immigrants to get a wide variety of job opportunities.

Let it be international students or immigrants, Canada is considered an important destination. Canada offers great job opportunities to the people migrating to the country.

International students can work legally in Canada while pursuing their education. The students can work on or off-campus as well. International students don’t need to obtain a work permit for part-time work. 

A few things that an international student should take care of is that the student must be enrolled as a full-time international student which means that the student must have a valid study permit in Canada. The students have to wait for their education program to start to get started with their part-time work. The students cannot start working before the start of their studies. And once the study program gets over, he has to seek a work permit to continue working in Canada.

The thing that should be kept in the notice is that the international students are allowed to work for only 20 hours a week during their regular academic studies. But the international students are allowed to work full-time during their holidays and the weekends.

The usual time a student spends in class is around 15-20 hours a week. So they get plenty of time to take up part-time work as well as to study, socialize, relax and enjoy life.

People all around the world are facing difficulties as they are waiting for a long time to get the results of their Canadian visa application. A recent data report from Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada shows that Canada is having a backlog of almost two million immigration applications.

The pending applications include several applications from future candidates, permanent residents, international students, temporary workers, and visitors as stated by the media.
The application processing delays have occurred due to the Covid-19 outbreak as stated by Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada. Due to Covid-19, most of the department’s in-person offices remained shuttered for over two years making the applicants left with no clear method to check on the status of their applications.
The number of people waiting for the application decisions is around 1,815,628 which is up by 0.15 from December 2021.
The number of applications for permanent resident applicants has gone down by several 29,165 since October which included the improvement of the economic class followed by the family class.
The number of temporary residence inventory applications has risen by 73,000 applications since October but Canada has also seen a decline in the study permit applications. Recently, Canada has seen a workers shortage, and to fulfil the worker’s demand, Canada has seen a demand for various temporary residence categories throughout the pandemic.
The temporary resident program of Canada considers three types of “classes” which include visitors, workers, and students.
According to the announcement made by Minister Fraser on 31st January states that the county is planning to make 147,000 PR decisions during the first quarter of 2022 making double the applications approved during 2021. IRCC’s new budget of $85 million will help the processing service standards to return to normal for the work permits, study permits, and permanent resident card renewals latest by the end of 2022.
Canada has seen a rise in the population making it to 37 million people in 2021 even after having such a big number of applications backlog. The reasons behind the rise in the population are due to immigration in the downtowns and distant suburbs of large cities making them grow stronger.
Residents arriving in Canada from all over the world during the year 2016-2021 is around 1.8 million making Canada retain the position as the fastest-growing G7 country as stated in the Census 2021 released by Statistics Canada.
