Immigration to Canada is regulated by the two main documents: the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) and the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations (IRPR). In addition, the government adopts the Immigration Levels Plan, which is updated every year. At the moment, Canada plans to admit 401,000 immigrants in 2021, 411,000 newcomers in 2022, and 421,000 new permanent residents in 2023.
There are three main classes of immigrants: Economic Class, Family Class, and Refugees and Protected Persons. Economic Class includes immigrants under all economic immigration programs, including federal programs, provincial programs, regional immigration pilots, and business immigration streams. Family Class programs allow Canadian citizens and permanent residents to sponsor their spouses, common-law partners, children, adopted children, parents, and grandparents. Immigration programs for refugees allow asylum seekers and persons in the need of protection to obtain a new home in Canada.
Economic immigrants constitute up to 60% of the total immigrants to Canada. Sponsored family members of Canadians are 35% of the annual immigration. Finally, refugees, protected persons, and humanitarian and compassionate grounds immigrants are about 5% of the total. Schindler Visa Services is mostly focused on Economic immigration, however, we also handle family sponsorship cases.

Express Entry (EE) is a federal system for selecting qualified candidates for permanent residence in Canada. Potential immigrants must apply online through Express Entry for one of the three federal economic immigration programs: Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSW), Federal Skilled Trades Program (FST), and Canadian Experience Class Progam (CEC).
Provincial Nominee Program
Canada’s Provincial Nominee Program (PNPs) allows Canadian provinces to attract immigrants who can benefit the local economy. Canada has a two-tier immigration system so that skilled workers can choose from various programs at both the federal and provincial levels. As of today, there are eleven provincial programs with over 85 different streams.
A spouse or common-law partner of a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada is eligible for spousal sponsorship for immigration to Canada. Same-sex couples are also eligible for spousal sponsorship. Both spouse and sponsor must submit required documents to the Immigration Department for family reunification through spousal sponsorship.
Parents and Grandparents Sponsorship
Canadian citizens and permanent residents may apply for the Parents and Grandparents Sponsorship (PGP) program that allows them to immigrate to Canada. PGP enables sponsored relatives to become permanent residents of Canada and receive all the benefits of life in Canada. Eventually, sponsored parents and grandparents can become Canadian citizens.
