Default Best Route: Job Offer or Express Entry

Hi Folks,

I'm looking to emigrate to Canada from the UK in Spring 2019. What is the best strategy for gaining permanent residency?

1) Progressing an Express Entry application (assuming I qualify for enough points)
2) Receive a job offer from a Canadian company? i.e. would a job offer circumvent the lengthy & costly application process...

Many thanks in advance!

Scott

Firstly, unless youíve got very special skills urgently needed in Canada, the chances of acquiring employment from offshore are very limited to none.
Unfortunately you didnít disclose your age. If under 30 you may qualify for an IEC Visa. This would get you into Canada with the strong possibility, after one year of Canadian experience, to apply for Permanent Residence status.
Good Luck.

Hi,

I believed i replied to your inquiry somewhere here in your thread and unfortunately its no longer here. I dont know why but again, regarding your inquiry.

You can take either, difference is that #1 it has 5 years residency visa, for #2 you're gonna get a working permit visa which is 1-2 years only. Also, having gone a Express Entry Program, you'll be able to apply for citizenship if ever you stay in Canada for 3 years, which means you'll be getting a passport of the country.

You pick the route you can qualify for. ;-)

Of course, express entry is super, as it gives you the freedom to go wherever you want to go, and to work wherever you want to work. As opposed to a job offer, where you have no choice at all, and have to leave the country when they let you go.
