How you can immigrate to Canada
There are plenty of immigration programs available to applicants who are willing to live in Canada permanently. Depending on your situation, you should choose the right immigration program for yourself to ensure your application is successful and allows you to immigrate within the shortest period of time.
The Express Entry is an electronic system for managing permanent residence (PR) applications. The system is run by the federal government and manages applications for three key economic immigration programs:
- Federal Skilled Worker Program
- Federal Skilled Trades Program
- Canadian Experience Class
Eligible applicants will be placed in a pool with other eligible applicants and ranked using several factors. Top candidates will receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) to a specific program online and will have 90 days from the date of the ITA to submit their application online.
Most applicants are processed within six months, considering all required information and documents are submitted on time.

Humanitarian and Compassionate (H&C) Consideration
Foreign Nationals who would not qualify for permanent residency in any class might file their application under Humanitarian & Compassionate Considerations stream. Applications may make a submission on any facts affecting their personal circumstances that they believe are relevant to their request for H&C consideration.
All applications in this class are considered on a case-by-case basis where applicants must prove that they will face unusual, undeserved or disproportionate hardship if denied staying in Canada. Each application will be assessed based on applicant’s personal circumstances and information provided and whether it merits humanitarian and compassionate considerations. When applicable, the best interest of a child directly affected by the decision will be taken into consideration.
