Answer: No

Express Entry

Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs)

There are two main immigration programmes that do not require a Canadian job offer


Express Entry

If you apply for an Express Entry programme, you will most likely not need a job offer. Candidates for Express Entry must have adequate work and educational experience, as well as language skills.


Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs)

Some provinces in Canada invite candidates to apply for nomination for PR to fill specific demographic or labour market gaps. They use a similar system to Express Entry, which is an expression of interest (EOI) point-based system or Express Entry pool. For this, they need someone from the province willing to nominate them to apply for PR.


Provinces like British Columbia, Ontario, and Newfoundland allow graduates under the Post-Graduate Work Permit Program to apply for permanent residency there without a job offer or work experience right after they graduate.

If you want to immigrate to Canada and do not yet have a valid job offer, don’t panic! There are many options available for becoming a permanent resident of Canada.
