Canada Immigration

Canada is one of the world's top immigration destinations with over 200,000 new arrivals coming under the Canada immigration system every year. Deciding to immigrate to Canada is a significant step in the lives of those who pursue this dream.

One of the objectives of Canadian immigration is to welcome skilled newcomers who will contribute to Canada's growing economy.  Skilled workers that settle in Canada on a permanent basis are especially valuable to the Canadian workforce.

Every application for Canadian immigration made through an economic immigration program is, in some way, unique. One thing that the majority of principal applicants share in common, however, is the experience of proving language ability. Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) affirms that the ability to communicate in one or both of Canada’s two official languages is key to finding employment and ensuring a smooth transition into Canadian life.

Express Entry is the new selection system for Canadian immigration, designed to select skilled workers for immigration to Canada.
Express Entry is a completely electronic process involving the federal government, provincial governments, and Canadian employers.
