Opportunity to settle in Canadian provinces 20

Opportunity to settle in Canadian provinces 20

Among Canada's nine states, studying for a master's degree in British Columbia (BC) will have the highest opportunity to settle, but the lowest salary.

After the article about settling down through studying abroad for a master’s degree in British Columbia (BC), Mr. Nguyen Dang Anh Thi continues to answer the question of which province has the highest opportunity to settle down and the cost of studying abroad.

Choosing which Canadian province to study in involves many factors: tuition, budget, relationships, job opportunities, post-graduation settlement opportunities and even weather factors.

I contemplate that `study somewhere, finish studying and live there` will have more advantages in terms of employment and settlement than `study in this province, finish studying and live in that province`.

Summary of Provincial Nomination Programs (PNP) related to international students at master’s level and above in Canada is as follows:

– Alberta (AB): Express Entry Stream, International graduates belong to this group.

– British Columbia (BC): International Post-Graduate Stream (excluding International Graduate).

– Manitoba (MB): International Education Stream, Graduate Internship Pathway.

– New Brunswick (NB): Post-Graduate Entrepreneurial Stream.

– Newfoundland and Labrador (NL): International Graduate Entrepreneur Stream.

– Nova Scotia Nominee Program (NS): International Graduate Entrepreneur Stream.

– Ontario (ON): Masters Graduate Stream (closed) and PhD Graduate Stream.

– Prince Edward Island (PEI): International Graduate Stream.

– Quebec (QC): Quebec Experience Program (PEQ), International Student belongs to this group.

I use the word `related` because in reality, in all of Canada at this time, only BC and MB still have the PNP program exclusively for master’s degrees.

ON Masters Graduate Stream used to be for master’s degrees, but did not limit the field of study, as long as you studied at one of 30 public universities in Ontario.

The MB Graduate Internship Pathway requires a master’s degree or higher from a provincial university and completion of an internship program under Mitacs Elevate or Accelerate (including Accelerate Entrepreneur) with a number of MB’s industries and research facilities.

PEI International Graduate Stream and AB Express Entry Stream (International graduates) both require a job offer.

NB, NL and NS are for post-graduates who have established and run a business there for one year or more.

So only the BC International Post-Graduate Stream remains, including two types of Skills Immigration (submit PR application by mail to IRCC) and Express Entry BC (submit online to IRCC via Federal Skilled Worker).

There are currently 9 schools offering training programs approved to participate in BCPNP, including: UBC, BCIT, SFU, UVic, Royal Roads, UNBC, Thompson Rivers (7 public schools), Trinity and NYIT (2 private schools).

Take a look around to see that BC International Post-Graduate Stream is the path with the highest settlement opportunity for international students at master’s level or higher in Canada, because the most important factor is that there is no need for a job offer.

BC is expected to need more than 900,000 more people from 2018 to 2028, of which over 87,000 people are international students graduating from university or higher in BC.

What if the program you study is not on the list approved by BCPNP but still wants to be nominated by BC to facilitate your PR application?

What if you already have a master’s degree, an MBA or even a PhD (outside of Canada)?

What if the program you study is only one year and your post-graduation work permit (PGWP) is also only one year?

When should I apply to BCPNP?

How much budget do you need to prepare for your study abroad journey?

BC, especially Vancouver, is famous for its expensive living costs and one of the lowest salaries in Canada.

Information about tuition fees, you can find out for yourself at each school, but my feeling is that UBC is the most expensive of the 9 schools.

– Rent is 2,000 CAD a month.

– Living expenses 1,000-2,000 CAD per month (depending on whether you eat McDonalds, eat at a restaurant or cook for yourself)

– Total ranges from 35,000-50,000 CAD per year.

Thus, the budget needs to be prepared about 50,000-100,000 CAD per year including tuition (depending on the school and program). The longer you study, the more it costs.

You spend that much for the whole family and your children don’t have to pay high school tuition.
