With so much buzz about Canadian Immigration in the news lately I wanted to give the Filipino Nurse community a personal update about the new Federal Skilled Worker (FSW) regulations.
Nurses are not on the new eligible occupations list.
So if you are a nurse and you were waiting to apply under the new FSW program, forget it. It’s time to re-evaluate your options for Canadian Permanent Residence and consider the Quebec Skilled Worker (QSW) program.
Nurses, Quebec still wants you! But for how long, I don’t know.
The Quebec program has always favoured nurses, but the program is up for review this summer and it’s very possible that they will follow the Federal programs’ example and remove nurses from their priority immigration status.
Don’t delay. The time is now.
I can’t say this enough, nurses, the QSW program is your best option to start living a better life in Canada. You don’t need a job offer, there is no money that needs to be shown to the government and you, and your dependent family all receive the rights and benefits that all Canadians receive.
As a Canadian Permanent Resident you can live anywhere in Canada, work in any job you like and stay here for as long as you want. In fact, you can even sponsor your parents to come stay with you on the new super visa for parents and grandparents which allows your relatives up to 10 years of status in Canada!
There are no more excuses, nurses. If you want to come to Canada, I’m telling you, I’ve been telling you, and will continue to tell you, the time is now.
Canada is tightening its regulations for immigrants and if you continue to wait, this opportunity, like all opportunities, could pass you by.
