Use Express Entry to hire a skilled foreign worker

If you are unable to fill a position in your workforce with a Canadian or permanent resident you can consider permanently hiring an experienced skilled foreign worker through Express Entry.

Citizenship and Immigration Canada is launching Express Entry on January 1st, 2015 to manage applications for permanent residence in certain economic programs including the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Skilled Trades Program, the Canadian Experience Class, and a portion of the Provincial Nominee Program.

Express Entry will place qualified candidates in a pool. If you are unable to find Canadians to fill available jobs, you can connect with eligible foreign workers in this pool through Job Bank.  If you offer them a permanent job, there will be no Labour Market Impact Assessment fee for a permanent residence application.
