This is the main federal immigration system that allows the selection of economic immigration candidates through 3 immigration programs:
The applicants that meet the criteria for one or several of the above programs, will enter the Express Entry Pool. The candidates are then awarded a certain number of points based on established factors and every 2 or 3 weeks there is a draw meant to select those that meet established requirements and scores. An Invitation to Apply is then issued and if accepted, an application for permanent residence can then be made.
The provinces also can select candidates from the pool, based on their labour market needs. A notification is sent to the applicant inviting him or her to apply and upon nomination, the points awarded in the Express Entry pool will guarantee that an Invitation to Apply is issued, even though it does not imply a guarantee of a positive response on the immigration application.
Express Entry is for candidates who intend to live outside of Québec. Those selected through a provincial program, must demonstrate a true intention to settle in the province or territory that nominated them.
The Québec government selects the candidates based on its own rules and criteria. Once selected, a Certificate of Selection of Québec (CSQ) is issued, which allows the candidate to apply for Canadian permanent residence with the federal government.

These programs target workers, students and business candidates interested in establishing themselves in that province or territory. Each year there is a determined number of candidates that provinces can select for each program.

Permanent residents who comply with the required time of physical presence in Canada can apply for Canadian Citizenship. While permanent residents must meet residence requirements on a continuous basis and do not have the right to vote, citizens are not subject to these restrictions, on top of other rights gained.
Additionally, to become a citizen, a citizenship and language test may be needed, as well as tax reports if applicable.
It is also possible to obtain Canadian citizenship by birth or after having been adopted.
