    The following are list of reasons previous applicants fail in their application for Canadian Permanent Residence. Make sure you are aware of these so that you can prevent from getting your Visa application denied.

    1. Misleading and false data in the application form

    People who are desperate to come to Canada provide non-truthful information in their application such as fake IELTS report or work experience causing their application to be automatically denied. The worse thing that ca happen to people who do this is getting banned from applying for Canadian Permanent Residence.

    2. Duties and responsibilities of the Job do not match those of the NOC code.

    Visa officers verify your Job duties and responsibilities in the Employment Reference Letter. If you fail to prove that your Job Duties match the NOC Code Description, your application will be rejected. Check this link to learn more about Employment Reference Letter: https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/corporate/publications-manuals/operational-bulletins-manuals/permanent-residence/express-entry/applications-received-on-after-january-1-2016-completeness-check.html

    3. Financial reasons

    Some people may be qualified for Express Entry however they are not able to support themselves and their family members primarily because they do not have enough funds to prove they can settle in Canada. Make sure you attach the proof of funds document (such as a Bank Statement with the Bank's Letterhead) on your application

    4. Criminality

    The government of Canada makes sure that people immigrating to Canada do not pose threat to the health and safety of the community and so if a Visa Officer confirms that you have a criminal record in the past, your application will automatically get denied and so you are inadmissible to Canada.

    5. Police Clearance Certificate Issued before leaving the country.

    If you need a police certificate from a country or territory and are currently living there or received the police certificate before leaving, the police certificate must be issued within six months before you apply. In addition, if you have lived there in the past, the police certificate must be issued after you last lived in that country or territory.

    6. Incomplete information in the Employment letter.

    As much as possible, you need to explicitly define whether you have worked as Permanent, Full-Time or Non-season. Visa officers calculate your score based on these categories.

    7. No including the foreign-language document when submitting the translation.

    If a supporting document is in a language other than English or French, the applicant must provide IRCC with a copy of the original document as well as a version translated by a certified translator.

    8. Submitting expired or soon-to-be expired LMIA (Labor Market Impact Assessment).

    If required, failure to provide proof of your LMIA can cause refusal of your PR Application

    9. Bank statements provided do not include the bank's letterhead

    Along with your application, you have to provide proof of settlement funds and one way to do this is to upload Bank Statements. Visa officers look for the authenticity of your documents and if they are not satisfied with your supporting documents, they may refuse your application. Learn more about Proof of funds here: https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/immigrate-canada/express-entry/documents/proof-funds.html

    10.Failure to attach required or supporting documents

    Everything that you declare in the application form must be supported by a document that proves the authenticity of your claim. Failure to do so could result in the application being refused.

    Students and Families can now travel to Canada! This is just one of the big news that I am about to explode in the video which you can watch later (link for the video down below). I have created a 20+ minute long, complete and detailed presentation of the latest Updates on Canadian Immigration. The video starts with learning about the different critical dates for October and beyond which is discussed in great detail in the video.

    As we all know, learning the news is important but learning how to take advantage of the news is much more important. What do you do when you read a news? How do you break down the steps that you must take to fully take advantage of the news? For instance, "Students and Families can now travel to Canada". Now what's next? If we take a deeper look at this news, it emphasizes that these group of people are now allowed to travel to any city or province of Canada after having been locked out in their home countries (as in the case of students) or prevented from travelling to Canada (as in the case of families) which is indeed a very good news for them.

    Aside from the news above, what else do we have in the pipeline? How about for aspiring Immigrants, Skilled Workers, Work Permit Holders and alike?
