A Statistics Canada report reveals that Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) newcomers earn more in Ontario, Alberta, and British Columbia, whereas lower earnings are observed in Atlantic Canada, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan. The disparity is attributed to local unemployment rates and individual characteristics like education, pre-landing Canadian work experience, and language skills. The report also highlights that economic immigrants' earnings vary based on their immigration program, with higher earnings for the Express Entry Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC) candidates since 2005 due to education, language ability, and age. The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores for FSWP and CEC candidates were higher, indicating their potential for skilled work and higher earnings.
