Canadian Migration Process from Dubai

Canada is one of the best countries to live in the world currently. It ranks 8th out of 162 countries in terms of safety and the first most immigration friendly country in the world overall. As a result, many refugees and immigrants have found sanctuary within the walls of this beautiful country. Apart from that, Canada is a very scenic country with numerous lakes, forests, and mountains. It is also very rich in cultural diversity and it offers one of the highest levels of education across the globe.

Moving to Canada is a dream for most people and here at Vazir Group, we help you realize your dream. If you want to migrate to Canada from Dubai, you can use either of two channels:

  1. Foreign Worker Program
  2. Entrepreneur Permanent Residency Program 


Canada encourages immigrants that can contribute to the Canadian workforce, thus the foreign worker program. This channel is open to everyone who has a bachelor’s degree in any field and has one or more sets of skills. The foreign worker program is also the fastest route for migrating into Canada, and the best part is that the applicant can take his or her family with them.


To be eligible for the Foreign Worker Program, you need the following:

  • A bachelor’s degree
  • IELTS 5-6 language test
  • At least $50000 – program cost


The Foreign Worker Program takes approximately 6-7 months for the issuance of a work permit the main applicant. The whole process takes place in 4 steps:

  1. Signing a contract with Vazir Group. Our contract fee is $10000, after which we begin the application process. The fee is fully refundable if a job offer is not obtained within 90 days from signing the contract. 
  2. The second step is getting the job letter issuance and applying for a Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) - with a second payment of $15000.
  3.  After a successful LMIA, we assist and apply for the Work Permit in Canada. At this step the last installment of $25000 is to be paid.
  4. Finally, with a successful application, you get your Work Permit Issued, and you are free to relocate to Canada with your family.


The Foreign Worker Program has some perks for the applicant, including:

  • Freedom to move and work anywhere in Canada
  • Additional to your current visa free travel
  • Free healthcare
  • Subsidized education for the children up to university level
  • Canadian passport application after living 3 out of 5 years in Canada
  • Dual Citizenship allowed 

Entrepreneur Permanent Residency Program 

Alternatively, you can choose to move to Canada by establishing a business in the country. This program takes about 12-15 months for the applicant to get their Permanent Residency. Even though usually the Permanent Residency process takes longer, it is much easier and cheaper by applying through the Entrepreneur Permanent Residency Program.  


  • A well developed and comprehensive business plan
  • IELTS 5 language proficiency


The Business Program has only two steps to the application process:

  • Vazir Group matches you with local designated entities in Canada while helping you secure a one-year business/office space.
  • Application for permanent residency: signing a contract with Vazir Group, attending a 10 days course in Canada, issuance of letter of support, issuance of Permanent Residency. 


The pros of using the Business Program as your channel of immigration into Canada from Dubai include:

  • You can apply for dual citizenship
  • You can get a Canadian passport after at least three years of living in Canada
  • Free healthcare
  • Free education for your children
  • Residency in any part of Canada

If you are planning to move to Canada from Dubai permanently, consider one of these two programs. With the help of Vazir Group, your dreams can finally come true.
