- Permanent Resident/Express Entry Visa
Express Entry is an immigration system which selects skilled workers to Canada under Federal Economic programs. Applicants submit an online profile to the Express Entry Pool. Canadian employers and provincial governments across Canada access the best candidates who are invited by the Federal government to apply for Canadian permanent residence
Express Entry is used to manage applications for permanent residence under these federal economic immigration programs:
- Federal Skilled Worker Program
- Federal Skilled Trades Program
- Canadian Experience Class
- Work Permit Visa
Foreign workers admitted to Canada help fill labour market shortages and provide other economic opportunities for Canadians, such as job creation and the transfer of new skills and knowledge. At Pathmaker Immigration, we frequently assist employers and job seekers to Canada in securing positive ESDC labour market impact assessment (LMIA) opinions. Once a positive LMIA is issued, the foreign worker may qualify to apply for a Canadian work permit.
You may be eligible for an open work permit if you are in one of the following situations:
- Permanent residence applicants who have applied to an office in Canada
- Dependent family members of some permanent residence applicants
- Spouses and common-law partners of some workers and international students
- Refugees, refugee claimants, protected persons and their family members
- Some temporary resident permit holders
- Some young workers participating in special programs
