    New scheme (I think this is new)...

    Stream A – Applicants must have completed one of the following educational credentials at a post-secondary designated learning institution in Canada in the last 3 years, and they must have done at least 50% of their program of study (in person or online) while in Canada:
    • degree (bachelor’s degree, master’s degree or doctorate)
    • diploma from a program that is at least 2 years in length
    • graduate or post-graduate credential (for a diploma or certificate) from a program that is at least 1 year in length; in addition, the program must require a post-secondary degree or diploma, which must have been earned no more than 5 years before starting the graduate or post-graduate program


    Stream B – Applicants must have at least 1 year of full-time work experience (or the part-time equivalent, that is, at least 1,560 hours in total) in Canada in the last 3 years; they must also have completed one of the following at a post-secondary learning institution in or outside Canada in the last 5 years:
    • degree (bachelor’s degree, master’s degree or doctorate)
    • diploma from a program that is at least 2 years in length
    • graduate or post-graduate credential (for a diploma or certificate) from a program that is at least 1 year in length; in addition, the program must require a post-secondary degree or diploma, which must have been earned no more than 5 years before starting the graduate or post-graduate program

    New Fast track through study route becoming popular now particulalry among middle age couples, not sure what article says in full detail..
    Anecdotally two local friends (couples) in mid thirties (one with daughter) recently moved there on study route, one partner goes for study and other on dependent visa or something like that, heard its getting popular among middle-age group, all 4 had stable decent paying jobs here and transition was financially loosing decision yet took a plung for other reasons..

    • Nearly 8,100 Hongkongers issued study permits for higher education in Canada from January to September this year
    • Canada leapfrogs over Britain, Australia and US in race to attract those considering emigration

    I resent the implication that I'm over the hill... Yes, I am, but I don't like others pointing that out to me.

    You are probably beyond the lake over the hill.. Reminds me my own resentment when few years ago (probably after umbrella movement) i went to immigration consultant just to check my chances of immigrating to Canada, the agent helpfully said you are near the age boundary where it reduces your express entry points or something, hard realization directly on face..
