When immigrating to Canada as skilled workers, we usually encourage those entering the Express Entry pool to obtain a job offer before settling in Canada for extra CRS Score points. For those who rather wait until settling in Canada for a job offer, you may want to know your options.
Express Entry Programs That Don’t Require a Job Offer
The best option for those seeking to immigrate to Canada but don’t obtain a job offer is to apply for Express Entry Programs. Express Entry is a point-based system that manages applicants seeking permanent residency for those who can fill jobs where there is a lack of available skilled Canadian workers. The programs within the Express Entry pool that let you immigrate without a job offer include:
- Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSW)
- Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTC)
- Canadian Experience Class (CEC)
Other Options To Immigrate Without Job Offer
Provincial Nominee Programs
Some of Canada’s Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) are options for those without a job offer. The PNPs included are:
- Ontario Provincial Nominee Program (OINP)
- Saskatchewan Provincial Nominee Program (SINP)
- Nova Scotia Provincial Nominee Program (NSPNP)
There’s also the Canadian Investor Program category, where depending upon your net worth and your business experience, you could qualify for immigration without a job.
