根據加拿大聯邦政府內部報告顯示 ，普遍移民在加拿大有更好的經濟發展，而當中高技能移民*, 即是透過技術移民方法取得永居身分的人，在抵達加拿大不久之後，其收入水平已超過加拿大平均年收入水平。而大多數這些移民，其後都會擔任管理職位或是獨立工作的專業人士。
加拿大技術移民自2015 年1 月起，開始使用快速移民通道 (Express Entry System)，這制度的實施令不少申請者被拒之於門外。但2016 年11 月起，加拿大移民局把選人的重點由是否有「加拿大顧主擔保」轉變至選擇有利於加拿大經濟發展的高技能移民。
在2017 年首6 個月，加拿大移民局透過技術快速通批出永久居民身分邀請，由往年的25% 提升到48%。
An internal report by the Government of Canada shows highly skilled economic immigrants earning the same or more than the average Canadian annual income soon after their arrival.
The Canadian Press (CP) says the report shows immigrants in all classes faring better economically in Canada as time goes on, but highly skilled workers tend to hit the ground running, earning annual incomes on par with or above the national average soon after their arrival. Greater numbers of economic class immigrants also end up in managerial or professional positions.
The report also found, among other things, that newcomers who transition to Canadian citizenship feel “more of a sense of belonging in Canada” than those born there or immigrants who have not yet become citizens.
In November 2016, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) adjusted how economic immigration candidates in the federal Express Entry pool were awarded points under its Comprehensive Ranking System, with the emphasis shifting away from a job offer in favour of their human capital scores.
Following these so-called “targeted improvements”, the proportion of Federal Skilled Worker candidates invited to apply for permanent residence through the Express Entry system jumped from 25 percent to 48 percent during the first six months of 2017.
高技能移民* ＝education, language skills and work experience, tend to have “higher earning potential”
