Initial Profile Assessment
Despite the global coronavirus pandemic, Canada has set a target of welcoming over 400,000 new immigrants per year, beginning in 2021.
Canada offers one of the world's most open and dynamic immigration systems. There are over 100 different Canadian immigration pathways for skilled workers, business people, and families. Ahlan Canada! helps you explore which options may be best for you.
Federal Skilled Worker Program
Since 1967, the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) has been the main way Canada has welcomed talent from all across the globe. Skilled workers are chosen as permanent residents based on their education, work experience, knowledge of English and/or French, and other factors. These things often help them succeed in Canada.
Provincial Nomination Program
Launched in 1998, the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) is the second leading way to immigrate to Canada as a skilled worker. Nearly every province and territory operates the PNP to welcome skilled workers from all over the world to help strengthen their economies.
This program is for workers who:
have the skills, education and work experience to contribute to the economy of a specific province or territory
want to live in that province, and
want to become permanent residents of Canada
