Good day Everyone 

This is the first time I'm posting, but have been reading all the post coming in and everyone is so helpful abd insightful😁

We have decided to do the immigration process on our own. What would be the best route to take? Should we submit our application online or on paper? 

Thanx for all the great advise

Look at which routes you qualify for. Don't worry now about online or paper, it will depend on what option you go for after doing your research. Do you qualify for EE with a high score? Are you likely to get a job offer with your current skills? How about PNP options? The AIPP? Start there then see where it takes you. Good luck!

Hi Melanie, I agree with Nelline, you need to determine which routes you qualify for. Like Nelline I live in The Maritimes and the AIPP is one of the better programs and worth a look. A big advantage of the Maritimes is low cost of housing which is very important when bringing hard earned Rand to Canada. Good luck.

Hi everyone 

Thank you for the advise. We checked, we qualify for EE and AIPP. Think we will be going for the AIPP. 

Thanks

Hi @MelanievR, just for clarification: if you qualify for the EE Federal Skilled Worker or Federal Skilled Trades program and you have enough points to be chosen in the next draw then you might not have to consider other programs such as AIPP. Becoming a permanent resident through EE only (no other programs) is usually the best option if it’s possible for you since you are then free to live and work anywhere in Canada and you don’t need a job offer before moving to Canada. Other programs such as the Provincial Nomination Programs (e.g. AIPP) might be good options for those with lower CRS scores but usually come with some restrictions and conditions e.g. on which province you are allowed to live, having a job offer first etc. If your CRS score is roughly at least 440 then the chance is good that you will be successful when applying through EE only, but if it is much lower then AIPP could be an option for you if you can get a job offer.

Hi @LidiaS77, I dont know how much our CRS score is yet, because we still have to do the IELTS. But thank you for your advise, we want to take the shortest route

You can take a "guesstimate" as to what your score will be and use the score calculator so you have an idea of what your score is likely to be, this will guide you in your research as to what route will likely lead to success.
