Myths about Canadian Immigration

Many of the myths that we are going to mention have misled people and made them drop such a huge chance of immigrating to Canada. This is why you must know these myths before you start you plan or apply to a visa, so you know what steps to take and what to expect. 


Statistics don’t lie, in fact, the reality is often the exact opposite of some of the biggest and untrue myths about immigration in Canada. Only by truly examining statistics about everyday situations, we can really begin to understand the most common myths about immigration to Canada.


1 - Immigrants bring crime to Canada


According to the International Centre for Criminal Law Reform and Criminal Justice Policy, immigrants are “much less involved in criminal activity than are those who were born in Canada.”


Immigrants looking to start their lives in Canada pose very little risk to Canada’s security. When arriving in Canada, newcomers are looking to find security for themselves and their families. Seeking protection from atrocities and hardship experienced by the threats from their homeland, it is a highly unfounded and non evidential statement to suggest they are the most responsible for a crime in our country.


2 - Internationally trained professionals are not as qualified as Canadian professionals


Approximately 40% of professionals who have trained abroad in a particular field and then immigrated to Canada are working in that same field in Canada. These professionals have to undergo rigorous training and additional accreditation before they can work in their chosen profession in Canada, including additional training and strict testing to make sure they are just as qualified as Canadian professionals.


It’s important to know that foreign-trained professionals must have credentials reviewed by accredited Canadian assessment bodies to be employed in their field.


3 - I can be a Canadian permanent resident (PR) by buying a property in Canada.


At this time, there is no immigration program attached to buying properties in Canada. As a result, you may NOT immigrate to Canada by purchasing a residential, commercial or industrial property alone.


4 - I do not need an IELTS exam to immigrate to Canada as an investor.


NOT entirely accurate. In order for you to meet the immigration requirements regarding language proficiency, you can choose between the IELTS General Training or CELPIP for English exams; or the TEF or TEF for the French exams. 


5 - I can apply for Canada Startup visa even if the business idea is not genuine.


When talking about the Canada startup visa program, the idea must be genuine. That means that the business idea must be innovative, it must show how it can create jobs for Canadians and compete on a global scale. Even though the financial investment is so important, the business idea itself must match the program requirements.
