It is not a secret that many people from around the world wish to immigrate to Canada. However, due to the volume of interested candidates, one’s immigration file can take up to 3 years to be reviewed by the government. If there are any discrepancies with the information provided, this process can take even longer. Since the waiting period is lengthy for immigrants seeking permanent residency, the Federal Government has come up with the Provincial Nominee Program, or PNP for short.
Why Is the Canadian Immigration Process so Lengthy?
With such a high volume of immigrants seeking permanent residence in Canada, the Government does not have the means to answer everyone’s file immediately.
On top of that, the Federal Government needs to ensure that an even number of skilled and unskilled immigrants are granted access into each and every province, so as to obtain economic balance.
How Do these Lengthy Immigration Periods Affect Immigrants?
There are many reasons why a foreigner would want to immigrate to Canada, one of them being that potential money-making opportunities. Having to wait for up to 3 years before receiving an answer can put people's lives in limbo, however, and stop them from making any life plans in the process.
Also, there are many countries that are ravaged by war or other life-threatening ordeals, which can make immigrating to Canada a pressing matter.
