Also,is there a way/ how can someone in this situation legally start preparing for paperwork and all IF they've already lived in Montreal for a year now illegally.
Harder? maybe in Ontario, BC and Alberta. A lot easier in Manitoba and Nova Scotia.
If you've been living illegally that won't help you, it only works in america and you have to be mexican for that :P
If you really wanna immigrate to Canada the fastest and easiest track is by study there. It basically goes like this: study for at least 8 months>getting an open work permit>becoming PR>becoming citizen.
you should check the NOC list, if your occupation is either 0, A or B it'll be a lot easier for you to immigrate. If not- you're gonna have to study in Nova Scotia or Manitoba, the only provinces that don't care about the NOC lol but you're still gonna have to work in a position related to what you studied for 3 months I think and then u can start the process to become PR, it takes around 10 months.
If u already have a bachelor's degree u can go to grad school or just do a post graduation program in college.. if u don't have bachelor's degree u can get a 1 or 2 years diploma.

Good Luck!

Nope, I'm just a soon-to-land immigrant that has been dealing with the nightmare that is immigration for over 2 years.

Of course... I am by no means a professional. If I was, I wouldn't be sharing what I know on a forum, I'd be charging for the info

This is the purpose of this thread, basically to get here all the off-topic questions about immigration with people with 1 post that you find in virtually EVERY THREAD. Honestly it's annoying as hell and I rather have this thread to discuss all of that and to try to help people.

Everyone is free to come here and discuss any relevant changes to immigration or anything else, as the title of the thread suggests.

I think a one-stop shop thread on immigration to Canada is a great idea and henceforth all questions on immigration will be added to this thread. For those of you that have expressed concerns, I agree that we need to be careful and have added a disclaimer at the beginning of this thread.

Yeah it's really hard to move to Canada or any country for that matter. Anybody else find bureaucratic immigration frustrating? I've been trying to leave the u.s. for several years now. I'm in school now. I plan to do grad school in Canada and get work permit and P.R. afterwards.

Great idea, but you know ofcourse people are still going to post their immigration questions elsewhere in their own threads anyway. It bothers me when posters say that other posters are "annoying" them. But now if you get tired of answering the same questions over and over, you could always just post a link to this thread.

Yes, and they'll be merged into this one.

Immigration is a nightmare, it's honestly one of the most stressful things I've had to do. I kind of have a bittersweet opinion about immigration to Canada. I do appreciate the fact that not just anyone can move there, and that's why it's so hard, but on the other hand, I'm also affected by all the procedures.

Today I went to get my fingerprints taken for a federal police check/records that I need to finalize my process, and it was a pain (though this is Mexican bureaucracy) First I had to hand in a whole bunch of documents, then they sent me across the city (Mexico City, so a huge distance) just to get the fingerprints, I spent at least 3 hours doing everything.
