Choose from Canada’s 80+ economic immigration programs

economic immigration

Canada currently operates a whopping 80+ economic immigration programs to admit eligible immigrants to the country. This is a record in the history of Canada and shows that the country has one of the world’s best evolved and sophisticated immigration systems. Further, this well diversified immigration system highlights Canada’s commitment for an impartial yet diversified selection of candidates for immigration, so that candidates with different skill sets and specializations are admitted to the country.

Canada’s economic immigration system

Before Canada launched the Provincial Nominee Program for migration in 1999, almost 90 per cent of the economic class immigrants to the country used to be selected directly by the federal government. At that time, most of the immigrants arrived in the country through the federal Skilled Worker Program, which was launched in 1967. Migrants were also admitted through the federal Entrepreneur Program, federal Self-employed Program and federal Immigrant Investor Program. Further, Quebec used to exclusively admit immigrants through its Skilled Worker Program, entrepreneur program, self-employed worker program and investor program.

Canada Provincial Nominee Program

A major change in the course of Canada’s immigration system was brought about by the Canada Provincial Nominee Program, which was introduced in the 1990s. It helped the smaller provinces of Canada to attract immigrants, which was not possible under Canada’s economic immigration programs. Today, every Canadian province and territory has their own Provincial Nominee Program, except Nunavut. Quebec has been operating an independent immigration system since 1978, as the province has special status within Canada. The PNPs have been successful in attracting more immigrants to the respective provinces and territories, which is proved by the fact that newcomer shares of the three largest provinces of Canada–Ontario, Quebec and British Columbia–have dropped from 85 percent prior to the introduction of the PNPs, to around 70 percent now.
These provinces and territories have introduced several economic class pathways under their nominee programs, thus diversifying the choice for immigration candidates. Besides, the federal government has introduced Federal Skilled Trades Program, Canadian Experience Class Program, and a number of pilot programs including the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program, further diversifying economic immigration to the country.
The broad selection criteria set by the different economic class programs open up many more opportunities for immigration candidates, provided they meet the general criteria for Canada migration including age, education qualification, language proficiency and work experience.
In 2020, Canada will be admitting around 110,000 newcomers through its economic immigration programs. Another 86,000 newcomers will be admitted through the three federal economic immigration programs managed under the Express Entry. All these simply prove that there is no better time than now to apply for immigration to Canada.
