How to Immigrate to Canada from Israel

How to Immigrate to Canada from Israel

You might want to consider moving to Canada from Israel for a number of different reasons. First, it’s worth it to move to Canada from Israel, as we’ll explain later. When compared to Israel, Canada offers better life expectancy, high-quality education for your children, standard healthcare, and promising potential.


Right now, immigration to Canada presents a one-of-a-kind opportunity. The urgent requirement for up to 1.4 million new immigrants who could become permanent residents was made public by the Canadian government in 2022. From 2021 to 2023, this plan was designed to last for three years.


As a result, it is now easier than ever to immigrate to Canada from Israel. Immigrants from Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa, Eilat, Herzliya, Netanya, Tiberias, Nazareth, or any other Israeli city who meet the requirements can enter Canada. Additionally, Israelite-friendly Canadian immigration programs exist; We’ll take a look at the three simplest choices.

Why should I leave Israel and come to Canada?

You might wonder what makes Canada so special and why you should think about moving there as a place to settle. Well, we’ll tell you some of the reasons why Canada is one of the best places in the world for Israeli immigrants:


#1. Excellent Work-Life Balance

Canada’s environment and culture make it simple for residents to maintain a work-life balance. For instance, the work environment is kind to employees, holidays are celebrated, and the majority of workers get paid on holidays. Bonuses and other benefits, such as health insurance and child education, are also provided to employees.


#2. World-Class Education

Canada’s educational standards are unmatched. In fact, getting a good education is one of the main reasons foreigners come to Canada. The majority of schools meet acceptable teaching standards and have the facilities students need to learn quickly and easily. Additionally, the community and teachers are typically extremely friendly, making the journey even simpler for foreigners.


#3. Quality of Life 

The standard of living in Canada is pretty good, and it comes with everything you need to live a good life. Working in Canada, for instance, enables residents to sponsor any necessary comfort. In addition, the government is responsible for providing healthcare, education for children, and other essential amenities to its permanent residents and citizens. Employers typically provide workers with some form of property insurance. Lastly, Canada’s relatively sparse population makes sufficient resources available for everyone.


How do I move from Israel to Canada?

There are a plethora of options for Israelis wishing to immigrate to Canada, each with its own advantages and drawbacks. Some will only let you stay for a few months, others for a few years, and still others may let you stay in Canada for good. Also, some immigration programs are only for business, some are for work, some are for tourism, some are for studying, and so on. Therefore, it is absolutely necessary for you to first comprehend what it is that you want to do in Canada and then determine the most effective immigration route for realizing that goal.


When it comes to immigration to Canada, the ultimate goal is to become a permanent resident. Permanent residence is the closest thing to Canadian citizenship and allows you to remain in Canada for the longest amount of time. When compared to other foreigners in Canada with different statuses, such as tourists or students, Canadian permanent residents typically enjoy the same level of privileges as Canadian citizens.


Naturally, the most common and quickest method would be the “almighty” Express Entry of Canada.


The Express Entry System.

You’ve probably heard of the Express Entry System because it’s the most popular way to get into Canada. The Express Entry System is basically the program for people who want to become permanent residents and is Canada’s way of admitting skilled workers.

According to the National Occupation Classification (NOC), skilled workers in Canada are those with the qualifications and experience necessary to perform other Skill Level 0, A, or B jobs. Let’s say, for instance, that either your position falls into one of these categories or that you meet the requirements to work in one of these fields. As a skilled worker, you can migrate to Canada in that case.


Under Express Entry, there are three distinct programs, each with its own set of requirements. These are:


The Canadian Experience Class (CEC)

The Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP),

The  Federal Skilled Trade Program (FSTP) all require applicants to meet specific criteria. Although you can only apply to one of these programs at a time, you should only submit an Express Entry application if you are eligible for one or two of them.


In order to apply for Express Entry, you will need to create an Express Entry profile, which will be used to determine whether or not you are eligible to apply for permanent residency in the future. When you submit your profile, it joins the profiles of other applicants who are similar to you in the Express Entry pool. The IRCC will award you points based on the information you provide in your profile to determine whether you are eligible.

The Express Entry pool is drawn every two weeks to select the best candidates to apply for permanent residency. Candidates’ Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores serve as the basis for this selection.


Even though Express Entry is the most common means of obtaining permanent residency in Canada, it is not the only option. There are numerous additional pathways for immigration based on economic class. Below, we’ll go over each of these options for immigration and explain how they work.

If you are an Israeli who wants to come to Canada, you have other options for immigration, such as:


The Common Candidate Program (PNP)

The Atlantic Migration Program

Family Sponsorship

LMIA work visa

A review license, and so on.


The Provincial Nominee Program 

the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), also known as the PNP, is the second-largest skilled worker pathway. Provinces and territories in Canada can use this program to select potential immigrants who can meet their financial needs.

Through the Provincial Nominee Program, you can move to Canada from Israel in one of two ways: You can apply to a province or territory’s provincial program directly, or you can set up a profile in the Express Entry pool so that provinces and territories can nominate you.


You will still create an Express Entry profile, regardless of which option you choose. As a result, using the Express Entry system is a great way to get into two programs. However, when you apply for Express Entry, you can indicate your interest in a provincial nominee program. If you are only interested in PNP, do you not have to apply to any Express Entry programs? Nonetheless, you are required to establish an Express Entry profile.


Imagine receiving an invitation to apply for a province’s nominee program. If that is the case, you will receive an additional 600 points, which will increase your chances of winning the Express Entry pool.


The Atlantic Immigration Program

The Atlantic Immigration Program basically requires you to do two things:


  • Being either a skilled worker or a graduate of a higher education institution in Atlantic Canada.
  • Willingness to work and live in any of the four Atlantic provinces.

In other words, this program is for people who meet the National Occupation Classification’s requirements for skilled workers or graduates of Atlantic Canada’s higher education institutions. You can begin by selecting a study permit to enroll in any of Canada’s higher education institutions if you are an Israeli willing to follow this path.


In the end, you need to keep in mind that you can only become a permanent resident of one of the four Atlantic Provinces using the Atlantic Immigration Program. New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador are these provinces.


Employers in these provinces can fill positions they could not fill locally by hiring foreign workers through this program.

It should be noted that the Atlantic Immigration Pilot has been superseded by the Atlantic Immigration Program.


How to Apply for Permanent Residence Through the Atlantic Immigration Program
