With an aim to ensure the availability of skilled workers in the Canada job market, Canada government has made skilled immigration a priority. As per the multi-year immigration levels plan of Canada, the country would be welcoming one million newcomers by 2021. The Express Entry system launched by Canada also makes the immigration process faster and more effective for international skilled workers. Though a job offer is not essential to apply for immigration through Express Entry, it would definitely earn a few extra priority points for those having one. Another effective pathway for skilled workers to migrate to Canada is Provincial Nominee Programs. Most of the Canadian provinces have exclusive streams for skilled workers with experience in the particular fields, desired by the province.
