On January 1, 2015 Citizenship and Immigration Canada introduced the Express Entry System, a comprehensive online Electronic Visa Processing method. The purpose is to create a faster and more distinctive approach for ambitious talented professionals from all over the world to meet their immigration needs. To be selected through this program, you need to submit an “expression of interest. “After which you can apply under any of the listed skilled occupation category – 0, A, and B. The government evaluates every applicant’s profile based on a comprehensive ranking system (CRS). Applicants who meet the CRS cut-off will receive an invitation to apply (ITA) for a Canada PR visa.

The express entry program system works on points. Hence, to be eligible, applicants (and/or their spouse) need to get enough points from the following criteria:
The Canada express entry program is one of the most transparent immigration option for foreign skilled professionals.It is completely online and applies to individuals from every part of the world.
The express entry is categorized into:
Under a shared jurisdiction between Ottawa and the provinces, Canada operates a two-tiered immigration system, offering programs for skilled workers, at both federal and provincial levels. Through a network of Nominee Programs (PNP), almost all of Canada’s ten provinces and three territories can nominate skilled worker candidates for admission to Canada with the specific skills required by their local economies. Successful candidates who receive a provincial or territorial nomination can then apply for Canadian permanent residence through federal immigration authorities. This is an important component of all provincial programs. Many provinces also run their own categories under the Canada Express Entry System. As a result, the provinces have an increasing role in the selection of economic immigrants.
The Atlantic Immigration Pilot operates as a partnership between Canada’s federal government and the four provinces in the region:
It is an employer-led pilot that aims to bring candidates to the region to fill positions for which Canadian citizens and permanent residents are not available.
To hire through the AIP, employers do not need a Labour Market Impact Assessment. Instead, they must meet requirements to become designated to make job offers.
Three programs operate under the Atlantic Immigration Pilot, which target different types of candidates:
The Atlantic High-Skilled Program is aimed at skilled workers with management, professional or technical/skilled job experience. There are also other requirements. The job offer must last for at least one year.
The Atlantic Intermediate-Skilled Program is aimed at candidates for jobs requiring a high school education and/or job-specific training. There are also other requirements. The job offer must be permanent.
The Atlantic International Graduate Program is aimed at candidates who have a degree, diploma or other credential from a publicly-funded institution in an Atlantic province. Work experience is not required. The job offer must last for at least one year.
Certain candidates can apply for a temporary work permit before sending their permanent resident application. This allows them to start work while their application for permanent residence is processed.
Candidates through all three Atlantic Immigration Pilot programs require a Settlement Plan after receiving an offer of employment. The Settlement Plan is designed to help you settle in Canada by highlighting resources specific to you and your family’s needs. You will also find where you can go to the community to get help. Candidates make the Settlement Plan with a settlement service provider, available both inside and outside Canada.
Each job offer made through the Atlantic Immigration Pilot requires provincial endorsement.
The application for endorsement is handled by the employer after the candidate has their Settlement Plan. Candidates should not submit a permanent residence application until they receive a Certificate of Endorsement. This should be submitted with the application.
The Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot was launched in 2019 as an initiative to stimulate economic growth in those areas by attracting skilled workers. Eleven communities have been selected to participate in the pilot. These communities will get a range of supports and programs in order to test the pilot.
In order to apply, a community must have a population of 50,000 or less and be located at least 75km from the core of a census metropolitan area, or have a population of 200,000 or less and be considered remove from other larger cities. Communities must be located in one of the following provinces or territories:
Communities must submit an economic development plan supported by a local economic development organization that can manage the pilot. Communities also must demonstrate they have employment opportunities available for newcomers, as well as having the ability to support the settlement of newcomers.
