Work while studying
A Canadian study permit doesn’t just grant you the right to attend university or college, it also grants the student, the right to work off-campus for up to 20 hours per week during regular academic sessions, and full-time during scheduled academic breaks. This opportunity is generally not afforded to students who decided to study in other countries, such as the United States. It allows the students to make some money to fund his/her ongoing studies and living costs, all the while giving the student connections in the local labor market. These professional networks could be the lead into landing a great job upon graduation. Under the Post-Graduation Work Permit, a student can obtain a work permit valid for up to three years, depending on the duration of his/her study program.

Immigrate to Canada
The Canadian Government has made immigration processes very simple especially with the Express Immigration stream. However, not everybody will classify or fall under this stream. Apart from Express Entry, each of Canada’s provinces has their own Provincial Nominee Programs which suit a variety of working and business class people (according to their eligibility) wishing to immigrate and make Canada their home. We offer advice and step by step help for Express Entry as well as the nomination processes for various provincial nominee programmes under the Canadian Experience Class as well as the skilled worker categories. With EARTHLINK CONSULTANTS UK, You may live up to your dream to migrate to Canada with minimal efforts.

Provincial Nominee Programmes
Most provinces and territories in Canada can nominate immigrants through the Provincial Nominee Program Canada (PNP). To qualify under these programs, you must have the skills, education and work experience to contribute substantially to the economy of that province or territory, and you just want to live there. Every province and territory has its own “streams” (immigration programs that target certain groups) and criteria for their PNP. For example, in a program stream, provinces and territories may target students, business people, skilled workers or semi-skilled workers.
If you are nominated under a non-Express Entry stream, you must apply through the paper-based process. GLOBAL EDVANTAGE OVERSEAS will help you in this process and if the province or territory finds you eligible and nominates you, you will have to send in an application to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC). GLOBAL EDVANTAGE OVERSEAS will also assist you with this application. GLOBAL EDVANTAGE OVERSEAS also helps you with your settlement and integration into the Province or Territory that nominated you.
