Canada offers about 120 different immigration pathways for economic class candidates. Here are the most popular options.
Do you want to immigrate to Canada as a skilled worker?
In 1967, Canada introduced the world’s first ever objective points system to assess whether immigration candidates could successfully integrate into the Canadian labour market. This was done through the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) which continues to be one of Canada’s most prominent immigration pathways.
What has changed since 1967, however, is the number of additional Canadian immigration programs now available to skilled workers.
Today, Canada offers some 120 different economic class immigration streams. The reason for this is the Canadian Constitution defines immigration as a shared responsibility between the federal government and Canada’s 10 provinces and 3 territories.
Express Entry is the main way that Canada, through the Department of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), manages and welcomes skilled workers. IRCC is now aiming to welcome some 110,000 new immigrants through Express Entry each year.
The first step to immigrate to Canada through Express Entry is by ensuring you are eligible under one of the three programs managed by Express Entry. The three programs are:
If you meet the criteria of one of these programs, you are eligible to create an Express Entry profile on IRCC’s website. IRCC will ask you to enter key information such as your age, relationship status, education, work experience, and English and/or French language skills. IRCC will give you a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score based on this information.
