WHAT IS ECONOMIC IMMIGRATION?
The ability to contribute to Canada’s economy, whether as workers, investors or business owners, and entrepreneurs, is what distinguishes economic immigrants from other types of immigrants.
Canada recognizes three other categories of immigrants and has policies to facilitate their admission:
- Immigrants sponsored by family: persons who are granted permanent resident status based on their relationship as the spouse, partner, parent, grandparent, child or other relative of the sponsor
- Refugees: persons who are granted permanent resident status based on a well-founded fear of returning to their home country
- Other immigrants: persons who are granted permanent resident status under a program that does not encompass economic immigrants, immigrants sponsored by family or refugees
Steps to becoming a permanent economic immigrant
There are several pathways in becoming an economic immigrant in Canada.
Most are defined and administered by the federal government (that is, IRCC), although the provinces and territories manage certain aspects of some programs (see Table 1).
