Data Source: Statistics Canada


In 2018, Canada welcomed 321,035 permanent residents – the highest number admitted since 1913. Plans are in place to welcome over a million new immigrants between 2020 and 2022.

Students can use their Canadian education combined with their work experience in Canada to qualify for permanent residency. In fact, in the last twenty years, the number of international students who have made the transition to permanent residency has averaged around 25%. Studies show that Canadian-educated immigrants earn higher wages on average than foreign-educated immigrants.

Because Canada recognizes the potential value that international students bring to Canadian culture and economy, the Canadian Government has designed unique pathway programs to help students on their way to permanent residence. Canada’s federal pathway programs are accessed through the Express Entry online system, engineered to simplify the application process for skilled workers who want to become permanent residents.

Express Entry

There’s no “one-size fits all” list of requirements when it comes to Express Entry. To find out if a student is eligible, check the detailed requirements for each program that is part of the Express Entry system. Programs included in Express Entry are:

  • The Canadian Experience Class
  • The Federal Skilled Workers Program
  • Federal Skilled Trades

While eligibility varies from program to program, common minimum requirements include:

  • Strong English or French skills
    Work experience aligning with a National Occupation Code skill level
  • A job offer from a Canadian employer
  • Secondary education or above
  • Proof of funds

According to IRCC, once students submit their profile online, including documentation that supports their eligibility, they’ll be assessed. If eligible, they will be admitted into the Express Entry pool of candidates then ranked using a point-based system, with points awarded based on the information provided in their profile. Applicants with the highest scores are sent an application to apply for permanent residence. Students have to send in their application within 60 days of receiving the invitation. Find out more about Express Entry programs on the Government of Canada website.

Unique Immigration Programs by Province

Each province and territory has its own immigration program stream with specific requirements. How applicants apply to each program depends on which Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) they’re applying to. Applicants can apply for nomination under the non-Express Entry stream, or online under an Express Entry stream.

In both cases, applicants must meet the eligibility requirements of each province or territory’s PNP and submit an Express Entry profile to demonstrate their eligibility for one of its immigration programs.
