How can I immigrate to Canada?

Canada has more than 100 types of visas and immigration programs that open the way for you. There are several ways to come to Canada as a permanent resident, the best of which are:

1. Express Entry

Express Entry is the fastest and most desirable way to immigrate to Canada. Every year, 110,000 people from all over the world come to Canada through this program.

The Express Entry system covers 3 immigration programs:

Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSW)

Federal Skilled Technical Work Program (FST)

Canadian Experience Class (CEC)

To immigrate to Canada through the Express Entry system, you must create an account in this system and create a profile for yourself. Then enter the required information including age, education, work experience and so on. Express Entry will give you points based on the information you have entered and through the CRS scoring system. After that, enter the Express Entry pool and wait for the results to be announced.

High-scoring applicants will receive an invitation and then have to submit further documentation and apply for permanent residency in Canada.

The Express Entry system will review the applicants' files in a short period of time and within 6 months and announce the results.
