Is it difficult to get Canada PR after 35 years?

It is no secret that Canada is a great place to live. With its friendly people, diverse landscape, and thriving economy, it is no wonder that so many people want to move there. If you are one of those people who are wondering if it is too late to get Canadian permanent residency after 35 years of age, the answer is no! In this blog post, we will discuss the process of getting PR in Canada and dispel some of the myths that have been circulating.

The first myth that we will dispel is the idea that it is too late to apply for Canadian permanent residency after 35 years of age. This simply is not true! While it may be more difficult to immigrate to Canada through federal invitation after this age, it is by no means impossible. There are a number of provincial programs and pathways available to individuals over the age of 35 that can help them obtain permanent residency.

Age is one of the vital factors that should be considered when applying for a Canadian PR. You will get maximum points towards age factor if you fall in the age group of 18 to 35. With an increase in age every year, there would be a gradual decrease in the points secured towards Age factor.

There is no specific age limit requirement for any Canadian immigration program. Applicants in the age group of 20-29 receive the highest points for age.That doesn’t mean older applicants cannot be selected. If you are significantly older than 35, but you have a high level of education or connections in Canada or great English language skills, these can easily overcome points lost for age.

Previous work and study experiences in Canada can also be a positive factor for applicants over 35 years of age. The Express Entry system awards up to 30 points to those with Canadian academic training and additional points for minimum 1 year of work in the country in an occupation considered high skilled.

The second myth that we will dispel is the idea that the process of getting PR in Canada is difficult. While it may be challenging, it is certainly not impossible. There are a number of resources and support systems available to help individuals through the process.

The third myth is that the process of getting PR in Canada is time-consuming. Again, this is not true! While the process may be long in terms of time elapsed, it is not overly complicated or difficult to navigate. With the help of a qualified immigration lawyer or consultant, the process can be made much simpler and less time-consuming.

If you are over the age of 35 and looking to move to Canada, we encourage you to do your research and explore all of the options available to you. If you have any questions or would like help exploring your options, please contact us. We would be happy to assist you in any way we can.
