Migrate to Canada
Settle abroad with your family

SETTLE ABROAD WITH YOUR FAMILY – Migration has increased in popularity recently as more people choose to leave their own nation and establish themselves in another. People are willing to relocate internationally today for career, education, or better quality of life.

A person is said to have migrated when they move from one location to another in search of employment or better chances.

The purpose of migration can be temporary or permanent. People who choose to live there permanently are referred to as “permanent residents” of that nation.

A permanent resident is distinct from a citizen in that they are in possession of a foreign passport.

People go abroad for a variety of reasons, but the main drivers are usually employment, education, improved quality of life, or simply to broaden their horizons.

Moving to another nation has several advantages. It offers chances to experience new cultures, meet new people, and live in new environments. It offers chances to pick up new languages. Additionally, moving offers a chance for both professional and personal development.


One of the most profoundly life-altering decisions you can make is to relocate to one of the most developed nations in the world. Some of the primary motives for relocating abroad are:

  • Better salary and job prospects
  • An enhanced standard of living
  • More stable political environment
  • Vibrant multicultural cities
  • Better healthcare and education
  • Opportunity to bring more members of the family abroad
  • Better life for children
  • Opportunity to bring more members of the family abroad
Relocating from one location to another is the essence of migration. Typically, a variety of push and pull factors could be active, acting either independently or in concert.
The main pull factors, or those that entice new immigrants to a nation, are social and economic. Economic migration refers to when someone relocates overseas in search of employment or to pursue a carefully planned career path.
Social migration, on the other hand, is when an individual relocates overseas for either a better quality of life, or to be closer to family.

The top three factors that are typically cited as encouraging people to relocate abroad are-

  • Increased earning potential
  • More job opportunities, and
  • Better healthcare and education

According to the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA), there were an estimated over 232 million international migrants globally.

A person who lives outside of the nation in which they were born is referred to as an international migrant. A migrant is generally motivated by the desire to find new chances and a better way of life when they cross borders in pursuit of employment, education, and new perspectives.


Statistics for the year 2021 with the World Population Review, an independent organization, reveal that the United States – with 48.2 million – had the highest number of foreign-born residents, also referred to as immigrants.

With 15.9 million living abroad, India was the country with the highest number of former residents living internationally.

The leading countries for migrate overseas include, among others – the US, Canada, the UK, Germany, and Australia.

Canada, Australia and Germany are considered to be the top three countries for immigration post COVID-19.

Australia: A multicultural society and a thriving economy, Australia has a lot to offer a newcomer. Australian permanent residence visas are issued with a validity of five years, allowing you to move to the country and settle in Australia with your family.

You can apply for Australian citizenship after living in Australia for three years on a PR visa, provided you fulfil the other eligibility requirements.

Canada: Found to be the most-welcoming country for a migrant, Canada has streamlined immigration policies making it easier to apply.

432,000 newcomers are to be welcomed by Canada in 2022. A majority of these will be through economic immigration.

Express Entry has a standard processing time of within six months (from the date of receipt of the completed application).

Canada PR visas are issued for five years, and can be renewed. After living in Canada as a permanent resident for a minimum of three years out of five years – that is, 1095 days – you can apply to take up Canadian citizenship. Provided, however, that you meet the other eligibility requirements.

Germany: High demand for skilled workers in Germany is generating many opportunities for immigrants in diverse industries and sectors.

Germany is said to offer among the quickest visa decisions. Moreover, when you choose to migrate to Germany, you gain access to the entire European Union (EU).

The easiest country to immigrate to will be as per your individual circumstances and requirements.

How can I migrate ?

Permanent residency might be gained through different routes. The most common ways of becoming a permanent resident are through–

  • the work stream,
  • the family stream,
  • the study stream, or
  • as an investor or via a business stream.

If eligible, you might be able to acquire permanent residence straightaway, provided immigration routes suitable for your individual circumstances are available, open, and accepting applications.

Conversely, you might opt to go to a foreign country for study abroad or work overseas first and apply for permanent residence later on. Working or studying abroad might make you eligible for different immigration streams of the country that you study/work in. For example, previous and recent Canada work experience make you eligible for the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) that comes under Canada’s Express Entry.

Moreover, many countries allow you to stay back in the country after you have completed your study abroad. Post study work options are offered by countries such as the UK and Canada, among others.

Generally, a country’s family stream permanent residency is available for partners, children, parents, or other dependent relatives of an individual that is either a permanent resident or citizen of that country.

Under the work stream immigration pathway, you can gain permanent residence based on your having the skills in demand, or being sponsored by an employer in that country for a work-based visa.

Other pathways for permanent residence are also available. These vary from country to country.


The standard eligibility requirements for moving abroad include:

  • Basic eligibility (such as for the Express Entry of Canada, or SkillSelect of Australia),
  • Language requirements,
  • Health requirements (to be verified through a Medical Examination by a panel doctor),
  • Police Clearance Certificate (PCC), and
  • Proof of funds, if required.

Each immigration programme has specific minimal eligibility standards. Depending on the programme you are applying to, you may need to provide documentation to back up the assertions you make in your application.

Before applying, it is wise to validate your eligibility.

Typically, the relevant government will verify your credentials, identity, employment history, and general background.


STEP 1: Check eligibility.

STEP 2: Finding out if you score the required points, if applicable (67 points needed for Express Entry, 65 points for SkillSelect).

STEP 3: Arrange the list requirements with the help of Y-Axis overseas professionals.

STEP 4: Register an Expression of Interest profile

STEP 5: Receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA)

STEP 6: Submit completed application.

If applying under the provincial route to Canadian permanent residence, you will have to go through a two-step application process. Firstly, a nomination by any of the provinces/territories part of the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) will have to be secured.

The Nomination Certificate can then be used to apply for permanent residence. The decision to grant Canadian permanent residence is the sole prerogative of the federal department of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
