Consultant makes his pitch for immigration.
WWICS general manager and immigration expert Deepak Kochhar was the keynote speaker at the event which saw immigration aspirants seeking to choose the right option to start a life in Canada and Australia.
Laying emphasis on the need of sound businesspersons, entrepreneurs and skilled professionals in Canada, Kochhar stated that business opportunities are extremely lucrative in Canada.
Though there are various options to migrate to Canada, the fast track options like the Federal Immigrant Investor Programme, the Quebec Investor Programme, Entrepreneur Programmes and the Provincial Nominee Programmes like the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Programme have been received well.
"The success rate for these programmes has been phenomenal," he claimed.
Highlighting the manpower crunch in Canada, Kochhar said that various federal and provincial nominee programmes are being promoted in a big way.
"One of the most sought after program is the Federal Skilled Worker Category and its 29 Priority Occupation List, under which four of the priority occupations have already been capped and the list is open only up to June 30 this year," he said.
Kochhar pointed out that Australia is also set to change the points system with effect from July this year. "All aspirants who fall under the current Skilled Occupation List and prevalent points grid should apply at the earliest," he urged.
The seminar also focused on the options for aspiring students who want to study and work in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, UK and the US.
The students have the option of applying for Permanent Residency upon completion of the course, while in Canada, in case they meet the requirements.
The seminar was attended by about 200 aspirants ranging from businesspersons, skilled workers, professionals and students.
