Chennai, May 12 (UNI) Recent changes in the Canadian law and fresh provisions pertaining to easing of work permit conditions for international students studying in Canada are proving to be of immense advantage to prospective Indian immigrants keen to work and settle abroad, according to World Wide Immigration and Consultance Services (WWICS).
Talking to newspersons here today, WWICS CMD Lt Col (Retd) B S Sandhu asserted that migrating to Canada was increasingly becoming easier and less time consuming.
He said people from India in general and Chennai in particular have been particularly successful in migrating to Canada. In the last ten years alone over 9500 people have immigrated.
The yearly figure of Indians migrating to Canada has touched 30,000 mark.
Referring to the recent 'Post Graduate Work Permit Programme' introduced by Canada, Lt Col Sandhu said the transition to Canada via education has been of immense benefit with the recently incorporated provisions in the immigration policy which enabled international students in Canada to get a work permit for upto three years without even a job offer to them.
Laying considerable stress on the fact that the budgetary provisions presented recently in Canadian Parliament did provide for heavy expenditure on strengthening and expanding wherewithal with Canadian missions to process a backlog of 9.25 lakh immigration cases, Lt Col Sandhu reiterated that the focus of new immigration regime, as spelled in budgetary considerations, was to lay consequential emphasis on spelling priority areas for intended immigration.
''This is clearly a great sign for prospective applicants from India, especially skilled workers and professionals, who are in great demand in Canada'', he added.
