The federal government and every Canadian province and territory have been making great strides over the past three decades with the introduction of many economic immigration pathways.

The goal: Provide a variety of immigration pathways so that Canada can meet the needs of a larger number of potential immigrants who, in turn, can bring a variety of skills and contribute to the country’s economic growth.

Canada’s immigration system welcomes permanent residents through three main avenues: as economic immigrants bringing both capital and labor skills, as family members sponsored under the family reunification program, and as refugees who are accepted into the country on humanitarian and compassionate grounds.

The economic class accounts for the largest share of immigration to Canada, with about 6 in 10 immigrants selected for their positive impact on the economy. Most economic immigrants are highly skilled workers who apply from abroad, as well as highly skilled temporary workers and international students already living in Canada.

Those interested in becoming permanent residents in Canada can submit a profile to the Express Entry pool, where they are electronically screened for eligibility to one of the three main economic immigration programs—the Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class, and Canadian Experience Class.

Eligible candidates who are entered into the Express Entry pool are ranked based on a score awarded under what is known as the Comprehensive Ranking System or CRS.

The CRS awards point for factors that include age, education, skilled work experience, and proficiency in English or French, which are both the official languages of Canada, as well as other factors.
