Generally, we’ll be looking for you to have at least 1 year (1,560 hours total / 30 hours + per week), continuous full-time employment or part time equivalent within the last 10 years although ideally, we’d be looking at you having significantly more depending on your age.

Am I eligible to Migrate to Canada as an Oil and gas well drilling and related worker?

Once you’ve satisfied the occupational and educational requirements to migrate to Canada as an Oil and gas well drilling and related worker then it’s time to look at stage one of your Immigration to Canada Project.

Stage 1 – Migrate to Canada as an Oil and gas well drilling and related worker : Getting Started

In order to successfully emigrate to Canada as an Oil and gas well drilling and related worker we’re first going to create an Express Entry profile. However, creating an express entry profile alone is of no use. Express Entry is where the work really begins in earnest, it’s the start of your immigration journey and not the end.

We need to create the very best Express Entry profile possible by hitting the required benchmarks laid down by Canadian Immigration which also gives us those all-important Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points.

Emigrate Canada doesn’t use any fancy one size fits all computer programs when it comes to assessing your eligibility to migrate to Canada as an Oil and gas well drilling and related worker. Every assessment is hand reviewed by an industry specialist with significant experience in Canadian migration. Check your eligibility and immigration options today, for free and with no obligation.

Stage 2 – Migrate to Canada as an Oil and gas well drilling and related worker Express Entry

Oil and gas well drilling and related workers and services operators who want to immigrate to Canada to live and work on a permanent basis must first register in the Express Entry pool and wait for an Invitation-to-Apply (ITA) from Immigration and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

Once a person has an ITA they can apply for Permanent Residence (PR).

When I Migrate to Canada as an Oil and gas well drilling and related worker on Permanent Residency what does it mean for me and my family?

Canadian Permanent Residents can:

  • Live and work in Canada
  • Enter and leave without restriction
  • Study in Canada
  • Access Canadian Healthcare
  • Access social benefits
  • Apply for Citizenship and Dual Nationality after four years
  • Enjoy protection under Canadian law and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms

The CIC draws the top candidates from the Express Entry pool and issues them an Invitation To Apply based on how many Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points they have obtained.

A perfect Comprehensive Ranking Score is 1200. An offer of arranged employment in Canada or a provincial nomination certificate is worth an amazing 600 points.

To date all draws to migrate to Canada as an Oil and gas well drilling and related worker have been above 449 CRS Points.

This means our experts at Emigrate Canada and your designated ICCRC Consultants need to work closely with you to maximise your overall CRS score.

Should you score 449 or over on your Express Entry CRS then there is a very good chance you’ll be able to Migrate to Canada as an Oil and gas well drilling and related worker without a Job Offer or Provincial Nomination.

Should you score less than 449 our industry experts at Emigrate Canada will be looking to secure Provincial Nomination for you in the first instance as well as working closely with you to secure a Job Offer in Canada as an Oil and gas well drilling and related worker.

Stage 3 – Migrate to Canada as an Oil and gas well drilling and related worker

With your Express Entry profile live and active it’s time to really make it count. As we’ve already said, just having an Express Entry profile for Canada without any of the key paperwork in place is unlikely to achieve any meaningful success.

What Express Entry paperwork is required to migrate to Canada as an Oil and gas well drilling and related worker?

Firstly, your dedicated ICCRC consultant will work with you to have your education certificates verified via an Educational Credential Assessment. We cannot claim education points on your Express Entry profile without your educational history being formally verified.

Whilst your educational paperwork is being verified we’ll have you sit your internationally recognized English or French test (or both if you’re lucky enough to be bi lingual in these languages!).

In order to successfully immigrate to Canada as an Oil and gas well drilling and related worker we’ll also need to start your application to the Oil and gas well drilling and related worker regulatory body in Canada.

What does this all mean for me, looking to migrate to Canada as an Oil and gas well drilling and related worker?

Canadian Immigration need to be satisfied you’ll be able to work as an Oil and gas well drilling and related worker in Canada and additionally, should we require either a job offer or Provincial Nomination to secure enough CRS Points on Express Entry you’ll need to show at least a letter of provisional approval by the regulatory body in Canada.

Stage 4 – Migrate to Canada as an Oil and gas well drilling and related worker with Provincial Nomination

With your Emigrate Canada designated ICCRC Consultant having now arranged your Express Entry profile, completed and evidenced with your educational credentials and put your language certificate in place we will actively prepare your application for Provincial Nomination.

Move to Canada as an Oil and gas well drilling and related worker with Provincial Nomination

Securing provincial Nomination as part of your Canadian Immigration boosts your CRS score by 600, effectively ensuring your successful Invitation to Apply for Canadian Permanent Residency. Some Provinces require a Job Offer (more on that later) although crucially some do not.

With any Canadian Provincial Nominee Program, you’ll be a Canadian Permanent Resident right from the start although you’ll be expected to live and work in the nominating province for a period of two years. After those two years you’ll be free to live and work anywhere in Canada.

As part of your overall application your designated Emigrate Canada ICCRC consultant will make an application to all available Canadian states and provinces in support of your permanent residency application. It’s important to be at this stage as soon as realistically possible to capitalize on the fluid nature of Canadian Immigration.

Provincial Immigration programs open and close regularly, and occupation in demand lists are constantly updated. We need to be ‘submission ready’ for when circumstances align in our favor. Should we wait until the perfect circumstances manifest, by the time an application is progressed through the various stages there’s a good chance the opportunity will be missed.

Migrate to Canada as an Oil and gas well drilling and related worker with provincial nomination from Ontario

One of the most popular States for Oil and gas well drilling and related workers and services operators looking to Immigrate to Canada is Ontario, one of the strongest economies in Canada and a State which is currently offering Provincial Nomination to Oil and gas well drilling and related workers and services operators without the need for a formal Job offer.

Stage 5 – Migrate to Canada as an Oil and gas well drilling and related worker: Invitation to Apply

The penultimate stage of your Immigration to Canada is receiving your Invitation to Apply via the Express Entry program. You’ll be receiving this Invitation based on your Express Entry Case which will either have been strong enough to have been selected directly on a federal basis, been selected via Provincial Nomination described above or selected based on you securing a formal Job Offer in Canada.

Regardless of how you’ve arrived at this milestone it’s a huge achievement and your dedicated Emigrate Canada ICCRC Consultant will have worked tirelessly to secure this stage for you and your family. It truly is this stage that makes all our efforts worthwhile, yet the hard work still isn’t over.

We still need to navigate the red tape and bureaucracy inherent in any Government Immigration program although rest assured, the path is well trodden and we have migrated thousands of applicants to Canada over the years.  As a final step you’ll need to clear background checks and medicals prior to your Permanent Residency Visas being formally granted.  Then it’s time to Celebrate !!!!
