Express Entry is an online process based on a ranking system. Participation in Express Entry will be mandatory for all economic immigrants under the Canadian Experience Class, the Federal Skilled Worker Program, and the Federal Skilled Trades Program, although optional for Provincial Nominee Program applicants. 

Business Class Immigration – Individuals who aim to invest in Canada and contribute to the Canadian economy have immigration options. The programs are different and are made to attract different investors and accommodate them. The Canadian business immigration programs also seek to develop new commercial opportunities and improve access to growing foreign markets by welcoming people who are familiar with those markets and their special requirements and customs.

Family Class Immigration – Any Canadian Citizen or Permanent Resident of Canada may qualify to sponsor their spouse or other family members to come to Canada. The Government of Canada shows its utmost commitment to helping the citizens reunite their families wherever and whenever possible.

Canadian Experience Class (CEC) – The Canadian Experience Class (CEC) is suitable for Canada’s temporary foreign workers and graduate students who want to avail of Permanent Residency (PR). CEC is very popular amongst immigrant individuals who are already working and living in Canada. The structure of CEC makes it ideal especially for students of Canadian institutions who at present are on post-graduation work permits looking to ahead their careers.
