Express Entry: Almost 40% of international students qualify for PR through CEC
Under the Express Entry system, after completing their education in Canada, international students can be eligible to qualify for permanent residency.
The 85,000-90,000 Express Entry applicants that received an ITA last year included a large number of international students. Nearly 40% of foreign students out of all the Express Entry candidates qualified for PR under the Canadian Experience Class category.
Those international graduates who do not score enough points may seek provincial streams for students or look for their employers’ support through the LMIA.
