In addition to Express Entry, what are my federal economic class immigration options?

Under Canada's Immigration Levels Plan, Express Entry is the main way the federal government welcomes economic class immigrants.

However, the federal government operates a variety of other economic class immigrants for skilled immigrants and entrepreneurs. These options include:

  • Atlantic Immigration Program: For those who wish to settle in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, or Newfoundland and Labrador.
  • Hong Kong: Canada offers immigration programs to skilled workers from Hong Kong.
  • Start-up Visa Program: For those with an innovative business idea that is endorsed by a participating Canadian organization.
