Unfortunately, they don’t do landed immigrant status any more, or if they do they call it something else. We still earn points for various attributes that Canada finds attractive but I came over in my forties and the point system favours younger applicants, so we need to put in a little extra effort. Education is what will eventually put us over the top. I don’t mind receiving more education, but I’d be lying if I said I was seeking it just for its own sake in this case.
