With an application processing time of 6 months, the Express Entry Program is currently the most popular option for immigrants to apply for Canada PR visa. It uses a points-based system, which considers factors such as Age, Education, Work Experience, and Language Proficiency - to determine eligibility for permanent residency.

Canada has historically welcomed many immigrants to help “support & sustain” its economy under the Express Entry Program. As of February 2024, Canada faces drastic labour shortages - alongside nearly 1 million job vacancies. Both of which are the driving factors behind the higher immigration targets.

With the upcoming record-breaking immigration intakes and the back-to-back invitation rounds being conducted in 2024, now is the best time to immigrate to Canada.
