Hire permanent workers

In January 2015, Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) launched Express Entry to manage the applications in these immigration programs:

Foreign workers are now able to use our online tool, Come to Canada, to see if they meet the criteria to get into the Express Entry pool.

If you are a Canadian employer, you can hire Express Entry candidates to meet your labour needs when you are not able to find Canadians or permanent residents to fill job vacancies. You can use the same recruiting and hiring practices you use now.

You also have access to candidates through private sector job boards and Provincial Nominee Programs in some cases. In addition, later in 2015, Job Bank will introduce a matching function to connect eligible employers with Express Entry candidates.

If your business is outside Quebec, CIC's new Employer Liaison Network (ELN) can provide guidance on how to use Express Entry efficiently. ELN officers will be located across Canada.
