Highlighting the urgency of situation, Sandhu said that once the revised list is released, we never know whether an occupation enlisted in present POL will continue to enjoy same status in new list or not as some categories may be deleted and many more added.
He added that Canadian government is in process to reconsider 38 occupations in POL. “Those who apply now would be considered as per existing list even after changes are introduced by May 1,” he said.
Curtis Panke, Director, Global Placement Services (GPS) said that the present POL consists of teaching professionals, managers in financial, computer and information systems, health care, restaurant and food service, accommodation service and construction. These also include financial auditors and accountants, geologists, geochemists and geophysicists, mining engineers, geological engineers, petroleum engineers, specialist physicians, general practitioners and family physicians, audiologists and speech, language pathologists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, head nurses and supervisors, registered nurses, medical radiation technologists, licensed practical nurses, university professors and college.
The list also mentions vocational instructors, chefs, cooks, contractors and supervisors, pipefitting trades, contractors and supervisors, carpentry trades, contractors and supervisors, heavy construction equipment crews, electricians (except industrial and power system), industrial electricians, plumbers, steamfitters, pipe fitters and sprinkler system installers,, welders and related machine operators, heavy-duty equipment mechanics, crane operators, drillers and blasters – surface mining, quarrying and construction, supervisors, mining and quarrying, supervisors, oil and gas drilling and service, supervisors, petroleum, gas and chemical processing and utilities, Curtis added.
Col. Sandhu revealed that as Canadian economic recovery gains momentum, Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism Minister Jason Kenney has launched consultations with national and regional stakeholders, provinces and territories and general public to identify Canada’s new and emerging labor market needs vis-à-vis the immigration influx.
He added that besides going through the POL list, Canada also offers permanent residency through investment, especially for business people under Canadian Federal Investor Program. By investing just Rs. 50 lakhs applicants would be able to immigrate on fast track system within 6-12 months.
It also does not require passing IELTS. With two years business experience and having net worth equivalent to CDN 800,000, makes one qualify for this opportunity enabling entire family to immigrate.
