Canada’s economy is the 11th highest ranking in the world, offering a wealth of opportunities and an exceptionally high standard of life to all who choose to immigrate to Canada. This includes free public healthcare and education up until grade 12. Thousands of skilled and semi-skilled workers are moving to one of the most dynamic, diverse, and multicultural communities in the world, and it’s no surprise why.
Canada is set to invite 1 million newcomers to call Canada home by 2021, and you could be one of them when you apply through one of over 70+ immigration and visa options. In order to address the current labour gap, the government has opted to introduce immigration programs such as the PNP (Provincial Nominee Program) and the Express Entry system to not only speed up the visa application process but to make it easily available to those who want to immigrate to Canada.
There are currently hundreds of thousands of job opportunities in Canada, and as a permanent resident, your spouse will have equal opportunities to apply for employment as well as enjoy the many other benefits on offer to its citizens. Among the top-earning occupations in demand are physicians; managerial roles, finance managers and accountants, and IT workers, however, there are also many opportunities available in the manufacturing, environmental and agricultural sectors, digital marketing and data analysis, the oil and gas industry, as well as in tourism and hospitality, which urgently need to be filled.

Top 3 Ways To Immigrate To Canada From Ghana
1. Take the Express Path.
The Express Entry system was designed to fast-track the Canadian visa application process and has effectively done so. You can now expect your application process to take a mere 6 months compared to other programs which could only be processed within 12 months or more, depending on where you apply from.
The Express Entry system manages 3 federal economic immigration programs and allows applicants with highly skilled occupations, such as doctors, lawyers, accountants, and financial managers, for example, to create an online profile containing information about your age, work experience, education, and qualifications, language ability, and adaptability.
Every 2 weeks your profile is entered into a draw pool where you will be ranked against other applicants. If successful, you will receive an ITA for permanent residence.
2. Find a Province Where Your Occupation is In Demand and Apply Through 1 of 11 Provincial Nominee Programs
As a highly skilled person, you may have a great chance of receiving an ITA through the Express Entry system, however, this does not guarantee that you will find a job once you move to Canada.
One of the best ways to immigrate to Canada is to apply for a visa through a Provincial Nominee Program that has an Express Entry category. You can apply through the PNP if you do not qualify for the Express Entry system however have a job offer in 1 of 11 of Canada’s provinces and territories. If your occupation is in demand in your territory or province of choice, you increase your chances of receiving a PN (Provincial Nomination), which is worth 600 CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System). The maximum CRS score you can get is 1200 which means that by having a PN you are already halfway to getting an ITA.
Another benefit to applying through a PNP with an Express Entry category is that by having an Express Entry profile, provinces and territories will be able to select eligible candidates directly from the Express Entry draw pools., thereby maximizing your chances of success.
Below are the top in-demand jobs and provinces with Express Entry Streams that you can apply through:
|Top Jobs In Demand in Provinces/Territories with PNP Express Entry Streams|
|PNP Express Entry Stream||Occupation|
|Alberta Express Entry Stream|
