Canada PPR – Easy Step by Step Process – Express Entry

Canada.png

 

Ever wondered how to apply for Canada PR? This article lists all the important information including latest changes in Canadian Immigration.

Express Entry was launched by the Canadian government in 2015 to make it easier for skilled workers to obtain legal permanent residency status. The Express Entry system takes place online, allowing candidates to fill out profiles with their language skills, age, job experience, education, transferable skills, spousal qualifications, and more. The profiles are assigned points, and then matched with high-demand labour fields. Applicants with the highest scores are invited to apply for the Canadian permanent residence visa. The visa will be processed in six months, which is much faster than other immigration routes.

Step 1: Find out if you’re eligible

There are two ways to find out if you’re eligible for a program that is part of Express Entry:

Step 2 – Online Profile

Applicants must begin online, where they create a profile. Once you have registered your online profile, you will be registered with the Job Match account. This is a job bank that helps employers connect with prospective applicants. You can begin searching for a job right away.

Step 3 – Document Checklist

In order to properly score your application, the system will need relevant documentation. To that end, the system will generate a personal document checklist. Mandatory documents at this stage include birth certificates, marriage and divorce certificates, evidence of common law marriage, adoption and custody records, job offer letters, proof of educational credentials such as a CV or resume, proof of work experience, digital photos, and proof of funds. Some people will also be asked to provide medical exam or other special documents. You will also need to send your Educational Credential Assessment, or ECA, along with language test results, to the CIC.

Step 4 – Scoring

The Express Entry tool will rank you with the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), which is a points-based system that will give you a numerical score. The CIC will invite applicants with the highest scores in the pool to apply for permanent residency.

There are no minimum points required for Express Entry. However, CRS scoring is transparent. A person will receive points for the following factors:

  • Age: the maximum score is 110 points if the applicant is between 20 and 29 years’ old
  • Education level: the maximum score is up to 150 points for a PhD
  • Language proficiency: up to 160 points for proficiency in English and French
  • Canadian work experience: the maximum score is 80 points for people with five years of experience
  • Skill transferability: the maximum score is 100 points
  • Education of spouse/partner: up to 10 points
  • Language proficiency of spouse/partner: up to 20 points
  • An additional 600 points are available if a person is nominated through the Canada Provincial Nominee Program after receiving a job offer or graduating from a post-secondary institution in Canada.
  • Siblings: in 2017, CRS was changed to award up to 15 points if you have at least one sibling living in Canada.

Step 5 – Invitation to Apply

If your score was high enough to be selected from the applicant pool, you will receive an invitation to apply (ITA). Within 90 days of notification you must submit a completed electronic application for permanent residence. Most complete applications can be completed in six months or less.

Remaining in the Pool or Reapplying

If you are not invited to submit an application for permanent residence, you can still remain in the pool for up to 12 months, as long as you continue to meet the criteria for at least one of the federal immigration programs. If your situation changes or you acquire new skills, you should update your profile.

If the CIC does not invite you to apply for permanent residence within this timeframe, you can start over with a new profile. Assuming you continue to meet the criteria, you will be re-entered into the pool, where you can try your luck again.

Best Book to Understand the 2008 Financial Crisis – After 10 years

Ever wondered what caused the Banking Crisis in 2008?

Too Big to Fail: The Inside Story of How Wall Street and Washington Fought to Save the Financial System — and Themselves

In one of the most gripping financial narratives in decades, Andrew Ross Sorkin – a New York Times columnist and one of the country’s most respected financial reporters-delivers the first definitive blow-by-blow account of the economic crisis that brought the world to the brink.

Through unprecedented access to the players involved, he re-creates all the drama and turmoil of these turbulent days, revealing never-before-disclosed details and recounting how, motivated as often by ego and greed as by fear and self-preservation, the most powerful men and women in finance and politics decided the fate of the world’s economy.

  • Named a Best Book of the Year by:The Economist, The Financial Times, Business Week
  • Winner of the Gerald Loeb Award for Best Business Book
  • Too Big To Fail is too good to put down. . . . It is the story of the actors in the most extraordinary financial spectacle in 80 years, and it is told brilliantly.” —The Economist
  • “Vigorously reported, superbly organized . . . For those of us who didn’t pursue MBAs—and have the penny-ante salaries to prove it—Sorkin’s book offers a clear, cogent explanation of what happened and why it matters.” —Julia Keller, Chicago Tribune
  • “Sorkin’s prodigious reporting and lively writing put the reader in the room for some of the biggest-dollar conference calls in history. It’s an entertaining, brisk book.” Paul M. Barrett, The New York Times Book Review
  • “Sorkin’s densely detailed and astonishing narrative of the epic financial crisis of 2008 is an extraordinary achievement that will be hard to surpass as the definitive account.” —John Gapper, Financial Times

Top Customer Reviews:

“Too Big to Fail” is an altogether excellent book by financial journalist Andrew Ross Sorkin. It’s a compelling narrative that tells the story of how the nation’s largest and most prestigious financial institutions came to the brink of collapse – and almost took the entire economy with them – in the great economic crisis of 2008.

According to Sorkin, the financial downturn that occurred in the summer of 2008 was actually years in the making. Many of the nation’s greatest investment banks, along with their commercial bank counterparts, had been busily dealing in high-risk subprime mortgages for years. As long as demand for housing remained high, so did housing prices; however, when massive numbers of people began defaulting on mortgages they could no longer afford, the housing market suddenly crashed, credit froze up, and banks began to fail…

…Thus begins the story of America’s economic meltdown in the late summer and early autumn of 2008. With the collapse of the housing markets, many of America’s oldest and greatest investment banks – among them Bear Stearns, Lehman Brothers, and Morgan Stanley – also find themselves threatened by total failure. So do commercial banks like Citigroup, Wachovia, and Bank of America; insurance companies like AIG; and the two government sponsored mortgage guarantors (Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac). Now, U.S. Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson, New York Federal Reserve Bank President Timothy Geithner, Congress, and other government regulators must find a way to save these financial institutions from ruin. If they don’t, America faces the very real possibility that its entire economic system may collapse.

Majority of Canadians haunted by Financial Stress

Are you stressed about your personal finances? I’m sure you are, and that’s the reason you are reading this article. According to the Financial Planning Standards Council – Financial Stress Survey, 41% Canadians cite “money” as the greatest reason of stress.

Financial.png

Here are top 3 Simple and Easy steps which will ensure that you regain some confidence about your personal finances.

  1. Weigh in financially

Weigh.png

Where are you now, how much do you earn, your spending habits, and how much you owe.

2. Create a Goal Plan

Goal.png

What are your goals (short term & long term)? Saving for a home, buying an SUV, saving for children’s education, paying off debt?

3. Action Plan

Actionable Plan.png

The next question is how are you going to get there? Are you going to earn more, spend less, automate your savings, or all 3?

Here is the solution:

Taking charge of your personal finances is the best way to reduce money related stress. 

  • Find & Cancel Unwanted Subscriptions

If you analyze your transactions to find all your recurring subscriptions, you will at-least find 1-2 subscriptions which you no longer use. So, why not cancel them?

  • Get out off credit card debt

A technique lot of people like to use to get out off debt is to pay off small credit card balances first. This can have a powerful psychological effect on many people because it can feel like they are making progress sooner. This can be very encouraging and provides a lot of people with motivation to keep paying down their debt.

  • Remove your payment information from Online shopping carts to cut down on Impulse purchases.

  • Consider a cooling period of 24 hours before buying a “want” as compared to a “need”.

  • Consider opening a TFSA or RSP

If you don’t have one, consider opening a TFSA or RSP. Start to save, even as little as $50 a month and it will increase your feeling of financial confidence.

India Today Mood of the Nation Poll:

Why 2019 general elections could be a clash of coalitions. In 2019, it’s personality versus arithmetic.

  • Ageing population may hurt BJP in 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
  • BJP will fall short of majority if elections are held today, reveals survey.
  • Will Demonetization impact BJP in 2019 elections?
  • What will happen if BJP doesn’t win?

PM Modi believes his government has done a lot for the middle class; here’s why

“The middle class is the only section in the society that bothers about the poorest section and wants maximum benefits to be given to such people. So as a country, it is our not only our responsibility but it is the national duty to uplift the middle class,” says the PM.

The prime minister also said that his government’s policies had benefited the middle class. He explained: “Let’s take inflation. You know what it was then….check newspaper cuttings of reports before 2014, you will come to know that we have brought down inflation from 18 per cent to 2-3 per cent. If there’s any section that has benefitted the most from this, is middle class.”

Top features in Android 9 Pie

Android 9 Pie.png

It’s official now that Android 9 will be called Android Pie. This latest version of Android mobile operating system will be rolled out to select smartphones. Android Pie shifts the focus on artificial intelligence, which will power the user experience on the OS.

Android 9 Pie is a feature-rich update, with subtle design improvements, helpful shortcuts, and a big focus on AI through adaptive settings. Google is trying to make your phone more personal, more efficient, and easier to use.

The article lists the topmost best features Android Pie brings to the operating system.

1. Digital Wellbeing

Google has taken the first step towards digital wellbeing which is often understanding more about how you interact with technology and introducing newer ways to keep you more informed and proactive.

It’s a dedicated area with dashboard that will give you an accounting of how many minutes you will spend on each app on your smartphone and also how many times you are picking up your phone and unlocking it etc.

You can also allow it to remind you of taking a break or set time limits and get alerts when you are reaching them.

Your time watched profile gives you a closer look at how much time you spend on YouTube, as well as comparisons to previous time periods.

2. Nice overview of Apps – Slices

Earlier versions of Android had recent apps will used to start horizontally, and then  Google started them stacking vertically, now it’s back to horizontal mode with some really nice improvements.

The overview screen has got the search bar along with the ability to get the list of all the apps in just one gesture.

3. Smarter Adaptive Battery

A new feature called “adaptive battery” is included with Android Pie. A smart battery is an amazing feature as it understands and deciphers the app’s functioning. This feature ensures only the apps needed are using battery and also helps use your smartphone longer between charges. The Artificial Intelligence adjusts the brightness of the screen based on the environment and user preference.

4. Improved Notification Panel

Android 9 version is updated with additional finishing touches as compared to the last few versions of Android which makes it even better.

This gives users an ability to reply to messages from the notifications area, and now there is a smart reply feature which gives you auto-generated smart replies you can choose in a single tap. This makes replying to simple messages even easier.

5. Improved Navigation

Android 9 Pie comes with a single home button in the screen, with a complete focus on navigation and user experience. This change has been made keeping in mind taller displays and higher aspect ratio. On the lines of Apple iPhone X, Android Pie gives similar swipes and gestures for navigation.
