Best Alternative Pathway for Canada PR
Canada PNP is the best alternative to federal Express Entry programs. Upon successful provincial nominations, Express Entry candidates are effectively guaranteed an invitation to apply for permanent residency by an addition of 600 CRS points.
Furthermore, some of the mentioned PNP categories like Express Entry & Occupation In-demand subcategories under Saskatchewan do not require a job offer or even a work experience in Canada to apply.
The monthly review of active Canada PNP has made it clear that economic immigration to Canada is overwhelming & everyone with varying levels of skills has a chance to work & settle abroad in a developed country like Canada.
