If you plan on immigrating to Canada, want to enroll in a Canadian university/college, or want to work in Canada, a knowledgeable immigration expert will add clarity to the process and help increase your chances of obtaining that visa. A Canadian immigration consultant is a trained, licensed professional, who through documentation and expertise in the legal processes, assists in the move from your country to Canada.
In recent years, as immigration has seen record highs, misconceptions surrounding the Canadian immigration process have grown as well. Many migrants and travelers are unaware of the correct legal process, and because of this, they easily fall prey to myths and rumors spread either online or by word of mouth. While some of these myths are harmless, others can cause undue confusion, distress, not to mention wasting time and hard-earned resources.
To help you steer clear of these misconceptions, the professionals at MVC Immigration Consulting have debunked some of the most widely believed myths about the Canadian immigration process.
Myth 1: Immigrants will be stuck with minimum-wage jobs in Canada
While there is absolutely nothing wrong with minimum-wage jobs, we understand that financial stability can be a concern for new immigrants. The misconception that all immigrants end up working minimum-wage jobs tends to scare a lot of our clients who are planning on immigrating to Canada. However, based on our experience with our clients and what we see around us, there are many financially stable, successful immigrants in Canada. Successful immigrants are in all industries, and it is really up to the individual to make the most of the opportunities that Canada has to offer. At MVC, we provide real insights, tips, and strategies that have proven successful in getting that job offer and in navigating the Canadian labour market.
Myth 2: Immigration is expensive
Many people are concerned about the process of immigration to Canada as being expensive. This myth is not valid, and while immigration does have its expenses, this expenditure should be seen as an investment that has long-term rewards and benefits that will not only impact you but also your family for many generations to come. Immigration is about providing better opportunities for yourself and your children, as well as the experience of living in a generous and beautiful first-world country. MVC offers fair pricing for all our services, and we offer installment payments for those who need it. With all the benefits you get from working with us, it’s an investment that will surely pay off in the future.
Myth 3: Immigrants are a liability to Canada
This myth is not just detrimental to the Canadian immigration system, but is untrue and makes the immigrant feel unwelcome and unimportant. The Canadian government has put in place procedures and standards to determine who will get permanent residency, a student visa, or be allowed to visit Canada on a tourist visa. There is also a financial component involved, and applicants must show they have the financial capacity to support themselves and their families for the duration of their stay in Canada or as they start their lives (in the case of permanent residents). Applicants must also show proof of assets from their home countries. Most Canadian immigration programs also require a certain level of education and English proficiency. Mechanisms like these ensure that when immigrants move to Canada, they will not become a burden to the economy but instead, contribute to the economy by integrating well and becoming model Canadian citizens.
