Canada comes with an exceptional education system ıncluding a long life expectancy earning Canada by far among the liberated countries ever known. It has numerous immigration programs using a solid system. Canada became the number one choice among countries to work and to live in.

All jobs in the labor market of Canada derived its job description through the nationally acknowledged system referred to as National Occupational Classification or NOC. This is a standard procedure that identifies a four-digit code to each profession within the country. It is simple to obtain the right NOC code that matches your profession. See all NOC codes here.

While working in Canada is very promising, understanding Canada including its immigration system is necessary.

Understanding Canada’s Immigration Policy

Canada has a very clear immigration policy, says director Jeanette den Toonder of the Center for Canadian Studies at the University of Groningen. “It has a points system (The Comprehensive Ranking System) with six categories in which points can be earned.” The more points, the better.

The system, which has been in existence since 1967, mainly takes into account education level, language skills (English and French), work experience and age. “You are good between 21 and 49, above and below you get points deduction.”

Most of the preparation for the visa can be done online. From registration to exercises for admissions. Den Toonder and her students completed such a test and proved to be quite suitable. The Canadian expert scored particularly well on knowledge of the country.

The country sets an annual target number. In 2019, between 290,000 and 310,000 migrants, representing 1 percent of the total population. The starting point of the policy is ‘finding what Canada needs’, which can vary per period: from doctor to painter.

In addition, there is a positive image of newcomers. “It’s a widely held idea that diversity is an essential part of Canadian identity,” said Den Toonder. The 300 thousand newcomers are therefore seen as a target rather than a limit.
