If you decided to immigrate to Canada, there are a few things you need to know. And they are not only about formalities such as application forms and websites you need to visit. No, there are more practical things to have in mind. 

Here are ten tips for those who want to set themselves up for success during the immigration process:

1. Find out your category: There are a few categories you can fall under when immigrating to Canada and knowing which is yours is very important. After finding out where you stand, you will have a better view of the proper path you need to take and then you will definitely achieve your goal faster.

2. Find out if you qualify: Once you have figured out which category works best for you, it’s time to check if you actually qualify for it. This isn’t the easiest step. Although there are some online tools that can help you get an idea of your eligibility, the best way is by consulting an immigration lawyer or consultant. A good professional should be able to tell you whether or not you should submit the application.  

3. Get familiar with the process: After figuring out your eligibility, it’s time to find out how to actually apply for immigration. Be extra careful, this part is where most applicants fail. So get familiar with every step of it: from learning how to fill out the forms to get to know how to reach the government in case something goes wrong.

4. Get help with your application: Get help. It’s as simple as that. A professional’s assistance is going to make your life so much easier. Even though the government websites claim one can do it all on their own, it is not worth it and can lead to added delays and unnecessary denials which may limit your future chances of entering the country.

5. Be informed: Do not be passive about your immigration application. Ask a professional all the questions you feel you need to for understanding the whole process – what you are in for, what the next steps are when certain events will take place, and so on. Keep yourself informed. 

6. Have Patience: Be ready to wait for a while, immigration cases take a long time. There is no magic trick here. All you can do is prevent errors and make sure your application has a proper process. Aside from that, just be patient.

7. Keep your lawyer or consultant up to date: It is very important to report any relevant changes in your life to the immigration authorities. Make sure to update them about changes like marriage, divorce, kids, employment changes, and so on.

8. Be realistic: There are no guarantees. It doesn’t matter how good your case is - the truth is your application might still get refused. So follow that same old rule: hope for the best, but be ready for the worst.

9. Know the place you’re going to before arriving there: Learn about Canada and get to know the basics before moving there. Don’t wait until you are there to find out where to go for housing, banking. and so on.

10. Be ready for the unexpected: Nothing is ever exactly as planned. So whatever is your plan, just know that there will be changes in it. Try to be flexible and adapt to whatever happens. Taking it easy, and going along with changes the best way you can, might save you a lot of stress – and money.
