Immigration laws and policies constantly change, so consult an expert for up-to-date information to determine your eligibility. The advice of a consultant can make the difference between success and failure.
The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is one of two accepted English language proficiency tests and the world’s most prominent test. It is intended to demonstrate a newcomer’s English proficiency and is one of the most widely recognised language tests for Canadian immigrants.
If you wish to immigrate to Canada via the Express Entry system, your odds of being chosen depend on your Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. You are awarded points under the CRS based on factors such as your education, English or French language proficiency, age, and work experience. Other factors substantially boosting your score include Canadian degrees, diplomas, certificates, a valid job offer, and a provincial or territorial nomination.
You can use your PR card to demonstrate that you are a permanent resident of Canada. If you travel outside Canada, you must present your card and passport when returning on a commercial vehicle, such as an aeroplane, ferry, train, or bus. Permanent residents travelling outside Canada who do not have a valid PR card or are not carrying it must register for a permanent resident travel document before returning by a commercial vehicle.
