Economic Class Immigration

Foreign nationals who acquire permanent residence under an economic class category have traditionally contributed to the Canadian economy by filling shortage in the labour market with skills, knowledge, expertise and other assets. The economic class includes the subcategories below:

1. Federal Skilled Worker (FSW) – Express Entry System:

This program is assessed according to point system eligibility criteria including education, skills, work experience, language ability, age, adaptability, and other qualifications needed to contribute to the Canadian labour market.

2. Federal Skilled Trades (FST)– Express Entry System:

This program is not assessed on a point system basis. However, it is an occupation listed in skill level B of the National Occupation Classification (NOC) matrix.

3. Canadian Experience Class (CEC)– Express Entry System:

This program is designed for International students who are graduates of a Canadian post-secondary institution and who possess professional, managerial experience or are skilled Canadian work experience as a minimum of 1 year full-time.

4. Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)– Express Entry System:

This program allows provinces and territories to nominate foreign nationals to apply for permanent residence if they meet the eligibility criteria requirements.

5. Quebec Economic Class

The province of Québec bases its selection on a grid of factors for which points are awarded, for example, your education, occupational skills, language knowledge and age, and whether you have children or otherwise, this will be also considered as well.
