#1 – Express Entry

Express Entry is a system of immigration programs that help skilled workers move to Canada as permanent residents. The system ranks candidates according to their age, education, work experience, and language abilities, and then selects the best candidates to come to Canada. Express Entry also allows workers to bring their family members!

Express Entry has the fastest processing times of all Canadian permanent residency programs, with 80% of applications being processed in 4 months or less.

#2 – Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs)

Each of Canada’s 13 provinces and territories (with the exception of Quebec) has its own immigration program, called a Provincial Nominee Program or PNP. PNPs let provinces respond to their individual economic needs by nominating certain candidates for permanent resident status. Often PNPs search out foreign workers with experience in occupations which are in-demand in the province. For example, the province of Saskatchewan recently changed its PNP to nominate more computer programmers.

Candidates who receive a provincial nomination earn an additional 600 Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points which virtually guarantees that they will receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence under IRCC’s Express Entry system.

There are nearly 80 different PNPs across Canada, each with its own set of eligibility requirements. If you’re eligible for just one of them, that could be your ticket to Canada!

#3 – Become an International Student

Canada is a top destination in the world for international students. This is because of the countries great schools, affordable tuition, and positive attitude towards newcomers. But! Canada also makes it easy for international students to apply for permanent immigration after their study has ended. For this reason, many newcomers choose to start their immigration journey by studying in Canada, and then apply for permanent residents status later!

#4 – The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (AIP)

The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (AIP) was launched in 2017 to help bring more workers to Canada’s Atlantic Region. The program lets employers in the Atlantic Region hire international workers from outside of Canada. If an international worker receives a job offer from one of the participating employers, they receive support in their immigration process and in their settlement to Canada.

In order to be eligible for AIP, first you have to get a job offer from one of the program’s designated employers. Check out the complete list of designated employers here!
