IRCC study shows outcomes of immigrants over the first three years of the Express Entry system
Nearly all Express Entry immigrants found employment in the first year after landing, and, generally, outperformed immigrants who came through the previous application system.
A recent Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) report looked at how Express Entry immigrants were faring in the Canadian labour market between 2015 and 2018. They compared results of the groups of people who applied through the electronic Express Entry system, and non-Express Entry immigrants who still used the old paper-based application system.
Express Entry immigrants tended to have stronger outcomes than non-Express Entry immigrants in the labour market. In the first year after immigration, 95 per cent and, about 83 per cent of were working in their field of expertise.
