Illegal Immigration

Illegal immigration is one Citizenship and Immigration Canada's problems. Every year, hundreds and thousands of people attempt to enter Canada illegally from Hungary, Mexico, Costa Rica, Argentina, Panama, Central America, Eastern Europe, Ireland and other countries

If you legally enter Canada through a visitor visa and stayed longer than the authorized period, you are already considered illegal immigrants.

But why would somebody resort to illegal immigration?

Arguably, Canada offers more opportunities for migrant workers than other countries. Its health care system is one of the reasons why many people want to live and work in Canada.

There are a number of immigration programs where you may apply for such as Federal Skilled Worker Program, Provincial Nominee Program, Family Class Sponsorship, and Canadian Experience Class. Having a Labor Market Opinion (LMO) or Arranged Employment Opinion (AEO) will also help you legally work in Canada. But not everybody who wants to live and work to Canada are eligible to apply. The eligibility requirement varies depending on the programs you wish to apply for. If you did not meet the requirement, there is nothing you can do.

And this one thing that I don't understand. There are those who sends their resume for assessment telling me that that want to live and work in Canada to give their family a better quality of life. But once told that they are eligible to apply, they don't do anything about it.

Most would tell me that they have financial concerns being the reason why they can't apply. But think about this - when was the last time that you don't think of any financial concerns?

Sadly, financial concerns is always there. It's in every stage of our lives. What differentiate some from the others is that some make it a reason to push through with the application. Some others make it as an excuse not to apply.

If you are eligible to apply, consider yourself lucky. You don't need to undergo illegal immigration. You have the opportunity but don't think that it will wait for you. Don't let he INTC example happen to you.
