When you start considering permanent residence in Canada, it might be a daunting process to read hundreds of pages online to figure out what type of Permanent Residence program is for you.
So Government of Canada decided to make it easier for you by organizing and comparing three Express Entry programs as well as the Atlantic Immigration Pilot program, which all fall under Permanent Resident options in the table below.
But before you take a look at the comparison table, there is something you should know:
Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB)
Measures and recognizes future immigrants’ English language skills. The Niveaux de compétence linguistique canadiens (NCLC) is used to assess abilities in the French language.
So if you plan to live and work in Canada, or apply for citizenship, you should understand what the CLB is for an immigration program that suits you specifically. See CLB rates in the table below.
National Occupation Code (NOC)
Lists all the occupations in the Canadian labor market and describes each job according to skill type and skill level. There are a few main job groups you should be aware of:
- Skill Type 0 (zero): management jobs
- Skill Level A: professional jobs that usually call for a degree from a university
- Skill Level B: technical jobs and skilled trades that usually call for a college diploma or training as an apprentice
- Skill Level C: intermediate jobs that usually call for high school and/or job-specific training
- Skill Level D: labour jobs that usually give on-the-job training
